Excellent hotel with friendly staff. The rooms are very comfortable for the money. It is in an excellent location for bars, restaurants and shops. We will be visiting quite a lot as my daughter is at Uni there and we will definitely stay there on each visit.

Have stayed here many times before and witnessed the slow-ish decline as this chain becomes the Ryanair of hotel chains. No hairdryer available unless you sign one out at reception, but there is no internal phone, so you have to do this in person. They do put the external phone number of reception in the room, so you can pay... More

Admittedly, Durham city has changed a lot since I was a student there some 12 years ago. The location of our hotel would in the past have been quiet Riverside spot close to the centre. We learned the hard way however that these days the Premier Inn Durham City is surrounded by a newly developed complex of bars, restaurants and... More

In all my recent stays all the staff have been exceedingly friendly and helpful. Nothing is ever too much trouble for them. I do wish to thank personally Andrea / the breakfast team who gave me a card for my Birthday and personally came out in turn to wish a Happy Birthday. I also wish to thank Donna for nominating...

I normally stay in Radisson hotels with business, but could not get into the Durham one, so decided hey ho, go for a premier inn, needed to be in the vicinity to meet up with old friends from Uni, could not fault it, clean, spacious, great value, and a perfect location for bars and shops alike

Great central location for visitors to Durham and those who have business within a 30 minute radius. As a frequesnt Premier Inn user i do get frustrated by having to pay for Wi-fi past the free half hour. Its about time the management got the message that customers see free wi-fi as an essential these days. the cost to them... More

As you can tell from the title I'm not a Premier Inn fan, but for the Great North run rooms were in short supply so we had to make do. This also meant higher prices than normal. Once we found a nearby car park and sorted out our bearings this hotel stay was a reasonably good experience. The reception staff... More

Very friendly, helpful staff. Went out of their way to make our stay good and helped with our plans. The room was clean and beds very comfortable. Not huge room but OK for two. Very central location which suited very well.

If you are exploring Durham City this is a great place to stay. The hotel is well located with plenty of bars and national food chains nearby. The staff are fantastic and helpful. Do not rely on your Sat Nav but use the map from your booking and be aware the car park is a city centre multi -storey at... More

Amazing to find a sensibly priced hotel in such a great location, in such a wonderful city. Just a two minute walk through a pedestrian precinct into the city centre, and convenient car parking just behind the hotel. As always the Premier Inn staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Breakfasts were very good; tasty, meaty sausages, properly cooked mushrooms, and... More
