This is the second time I have stayed at this hotel and I have been highly impressed both times. As will all Premier Inns, the rooms are basic (no room safe, posh toiletries, bathrobes etc) but extremely clean, comfortable and spacious. This location of this particular Premier Inn is perfect - close to the station and very close to all... More

We had a lovely 3 day stay in Durham. The people are so friendly, helpful and welcoming. Despite the rain we had a really great time and we will return for another visit in the summer. We really loved the little bus that takes you up the hill to the Cathedral - very useful! and the Castle - fantastic tour... More

A group of us stopped here during a weekend in the city. It's well situated and very convenient for exploring and enjoying the often overlooked city of Durham. The rooms are standard Premier Inn, so they are clean and comfortable. The breakfast is the same, it's very convenient for Durham's night life or getting into the city.

Really good break, it was my birthday so the team provided extras - such as chocolates, ballons, etc. The room was also upgraded. Overall a really good location and great team. I would stay again if wishing to go to Durham.

Great position to visit the City, The usual high standard of room and staff. Breakfast great. The position is perfect for waking in and out of the city. And having the car park right next door is excellent. For a city centre hotel this one is VERY quiet.

Book in advance to secure a good price for a night at this hotel as it seems popular. Probably because it is Clean and quiet with a pleasant bar area. Highly recommended. A good nights sleep is guaranteed by Premier Inn.

Again great to be able to leave luggage and pick up again on way to train station. Really nice helpful staff who were conscientious and... More

The Premier Inn is a basic hotel with several advantages. It is located in the city center, at walking distance from restaurants and cafés. It is clean and has a 24h reception that helps with all the possible matters. My room was clean, easy to warm-up, decently furnished, with kettle and all the necessary to make coffee or tea. Wi-fi...

I had a very pleasant stay. Very kind and helpful staff. Very comfortable bedroom and bed. Good food. I look,forward to a return visit. Situated in the centre it was an easy walk to my destination. Outside visitors of mine were warmly welcomed and looked after.

Had a good 2 nights at the Premier Inn in Durham. The room was good and spacious and well equipped. Liked the choice of pillows. Food at breakfast was very good - had the 'full monty' and as good as more expensive establishments. Couple of howevers... could do with a grab handle on the far side of the bath for... More
