Over Night Stay at Hotel Indigo and Dinner at Marco Pierre White Durham

Hotel Indigo has caused a bit of a stir in Durham, everyone is talking about it, of course I had to go and check it out! 

Situated in the heart of Durham is the newly revamped Hotel Indigo the building is known locally as the Old Shire hall. 

Hotel Indigo Durham 

Taking a tour of the Hotel is breath taking, a lot of the original features have been kept from the 1890s building while adding a modern twist. 

 Inside the bedrooms at Hotel Indigo 

Stepping into my bedroom for the evening and I was blown away by how elegantly decorated it was. 

All the bedrooms in Hotel Indigo take decor inspiration from Durham University and Durham Cathedral. There are 83 bedrooms in total, all uniquely designed.

Our bedroom for the evening was absolutely gorgeous, everything had been thought through to offer you the most comfortable of stays. The bed was the most comfiest bed I've slept in in a very long time, as soon as I snuggled in the silky soft sheets I drifted off into a great sleep! 

It felt like a real treat when I found out everything inside the fridge was complimentray. (There was also a bottle of sparkling water but I was so thirsty I drank it straight away). 

Ringtons tea and hot chocolate was also included within the room.

The bathroom had the most gorgeous toiletries from Maddie Alexander where all the scents were inspired by Durham and were so luxurious. I slathered the body cream all over and tucked into the fluffy bathrobe and chilled out watching tv before heading down for dinner. 

Marco Pierre White at Hotel Indigo 

We were book from dinner in the restaurant at Hotel Indigo which is Marco Pierre White Steak house & grill.

I started my meal with Mr White's fresh dressed crab, £9.95 served with mayonnaise and a melba toast. It was so tasty. 

My Mam went for the salt roasted beetroot salad, £7.50, Kidderton ash goat's cheese with a walnut dressing.

Marco Pierre White is known as a Steak house however if you're not a steak lover there is plenty for you to eat. For main course Mam went for the gilled salmon steak à la forestière, £18.95, young spinach with vintage balsamico, olive oil and fresh herbs. 

I ordered Wheeler's classic fish pie £17.50, served with butter garden peas. It was scrumptious. We also ordered a side of triple cooked chips, £3.50, and a side of cream leafed spinach with horseradish, £3.50. 

For pudding Mam went for The box tree Eton mess and I went for the Classic dark chocolate moose, both £5.95. 

Breakfast at Hotel Indigo 

Breakfast, my absolute favourite meal of the day and Marco Pierre white does not let you down on a delicious start to the day! 

You are given fresh orange juice on arrival and the menu to browse over. Although I knew straight away what I wanted to order. 

Vegetarian breakfast, veggie sausage, grilled tomato, hash brown, portobello mushroom and an egg the way you like it cooked, I went for poached and also added a side of baked beans. 

On the other side of the table Mam went for eggs Benedict on a toasted muffin, house hollandaise sauce with local cured ham (although Mam asked for it to come without the ham).
