All the staff were very pleasant and helpful. I asked the waiter for a gluten-free breakfast and he cheerfully summoned Cameron, who asked me exactly what I would like and assured me that the kitchen area would be cleaned down and my breakfast prepared specially - such a contrast to the usual 'avoid the sausages and hope for no cross...

The hotel is located at walking distance to the old centre. Its staff is quite welcoming and trying to make your stay enjoyable. Always ready to answer any of your questions. The restaurant offers a good ratio price/quality within a sufficient variety of meals.

My family and I stayed at the Durham Premier Inn in May 2015. The rooms were a good standard and clean. The free Wi-Fi was excellent and adequate for our needs; we didn't need to upgrade to the premium Wi-Fi which I think was £5. Breakfast was fine but we didn't realise the self service was cleared away before we... More

We chose Premier In for easy access to the Magna Carta Exhibition. Car park just round the corner with a concession for Guests. Bus across the road straight to the Cathedral. The Staff in Premier Inn are to be complimented on their smiles, helpfulness and service. I single out Olivia, who is a joy. Cameron for putting up with my... More

This hotel is perfectly situated for a night out in Durham. The nightlife is literally on the doorstep. The hotel is spotless, rooms are very confortable and the staff are amazing. Cannot do enough to help or advise. Would definately recommend this hotel to people of all ages.

From checking into the hotel on Saturday night to checking out again on Monday morning we had excellent service at this central hotel. The staff couldn't do enough for us. They were friendly, professional, genuine and gave a warm welcome and a positive farewell at the end of our stay. You felt they really cared. The room was perfect....I really... More

Well its a premier inn! All the usual applies, large clean rooms, friendly staff and competitive prices. Fantastic location right in the centre, next to the sport centre and great for sight seeing. Great pubs and restaurants nearby (on site one is the usual over priced some old same old). Car parking is a pain. As I was in and... More

I have stayed at this location on several occasions and will be staying there again in a few weeks time. The hotel is clean, comfortable and very convenient for access to the City and surrounding areas. The breakfast is excellent and is very good value. My recent experience with a reservation has left a sour taste in my mouth. I... More

After a five hour drive from London we arrived at the wrong Premier Inn on the outskirts of Durham. The printed information had the incorrect postcode, according to the lady at the reception, many guests arrive at the wrong location so not a great start. On arriving at the right location, there is no parking provision to the hotel, which... More

Stayed here for just one night but would happily have stayed longer . It's a newer premier inn than most , which means it's well laid out and clean. Staff are friendly from the moment you walk through the door. We arrived late and their restaurant had just closed but they recommended somewhere just a 3 min walk away. Room... More
