Typical premier inn for me this place, clean,functional,comfortable and located right in the city centre with a multi storey car park located virtually right next door which is two quid over night.The staff were very friendly and professional indeed and if coming to Durham I would definitely stay here again.

Typical premier inn. Unfortunately, this one hasnt received the new beds yet which is a shame. Also the hotel has no private car park so you need to park next door and I think the charge is around £7.50, but remember to get your ticket validated at reception first. The hotel is built near a new Slug and Lettuce, Wetherspoons... More

This is a modern building in a great location between the train station and the city centre. Although there are building works in the vicinity the rooms are very quiet. It has a very attractive bar and restaurant and welcoming and helpful staff. The reception staff could not have been more friendly and efficient. The bed was a little firm... More

Stayed here 17th-19th Feb 2015. Good location, but only if you can cope with stairs. Just 5 mins from the centre. We had Room 321. At the back and no trouble with noise, although we could see the Slug and Lettuce where when we walked past a lot of noise coming from it, but in the room the triple glazing... More

Very friendly attentive staff. Great location. Room slightly dingy and mattress not up to usual premier inn standard. Parking not particularly easy to access but close nonetheless. Aims to be simple and deliver standard level of service and achieves that aim admirably.

Ideal site for a hotel (unless you have problems with stairs) it's just around the corner from the heart of the city. The staff here are fab, really friendly and helpful. The food at the hotel is good and I'd say the meal deal is good value. I would stay here again but would ask for a room well away... More

This is a really nice Premier Inn Hotel, on arrival the reception staff were really busy but tried very hard to get everyone seen to as soon as possible they were really friendly and helpful. The room was really nice and more than adequate for a family of four, it was also very quiet at night with comfortable beds ensuring... More
