Bed and breakfast accommodation in Durham University colleges
Staying in Durham college accommodation is an exciting opportunity. With centrally-located bed and breakfast (B&B) rooms from £28, it is a cost effective alternative to staying in a hotel, and by providing the college with revenue you will be contributing to the upkeep of the buildings. Rooms are mainly available in the Easter, summer and Christmas vacation periods.
You could trace the footsteps of Will Carling, Bill Bryson, Andrew Strauss, or even James Bond (Roger Moore and George Lazenby) who have all passed through Durham's colleges. You will eat in the college hall, and could wander through the college's gardens or take a tour of Durham's UNESCO World Heritage Sites followed by a drink in the college bar.
Durham B&B Reviews
"The rooms at Collingwood College are really convenient as a base for exploring Durham and the surrounding area. If you're looking for a comfortable, come-and-go base, which won't cost you too much cash, then these rooms are ideal. Would definitely use them again." Simon Holland, 2012.
"Not really knowing what to expect we were very pleased with the whole package. Breakfast especially was far better than we had expected and at least the equal of groups like Novotel, Ramada, etc that serve buffet style meals. All the staff that we encountered were very friendly and helpful. If Durham was typical we shall use this source again if staying in a city." Brian Cook, 2011.
"Very friendly staff, nice relaxed atmosphere, great breakfast." William Adams, 2010.
"Accommodation welcoming, clean & comfortable at a really good price- excellent value for money." David Smith, 2010.
Availability is mainly in the vacation periods (Christmas, Easter, Summer), when students clear their rooms. Rooms typically become available two to three months in advance, so please revisit the website within that period if nothing is available now, or go to www.historicbritain.com/durham for hundreds more accommodation and travel ideas.
