If you are visiting Durham you can do no better than to stay at the Honest Lawyer Hotel (strange name, but don't be put off by this!) It is conveniently located on the main Darlington to Durham road at Croxdale, just south of the city. There is a bus stop right outside the hotel, the buses run every 5-10 minutes and the journey into Durham takes just 10 minutes.
The hotel has well appointed motel type rooms, and a big plus for us was that they allowed us to bring our dog with us. All the staff were welcoming, friendly, and extremely helpful. The restaurant menu was original and the food of excellent quality and well prepared - the chef here really knows his stuff. There was a good selection of wines on the list and beers at the bar. Overall, a great experience, and we shall certainly be staying again.
