Excellent staff here at City centre! Cannot fault the service, there seems to be a flow of organisation that fits well. I choose this brand everytime over any other. Premier inn as a whole does what it says on the tin, this is why I return. Clean, tidy & up to date rooms - easy efficient check in - 2... More

Situated in the heart of the city- right beside the bars and restaurants. the hotel is very modern, rooms are very nice comfortable, everything you need for the stay. Staff are friendly and cheerful- food and drink pretty cheap considering its in the city- defiantly recommend.

This was our second time we have stayed at this hotel. It's an ideal base for an overnight stay in Durham as it is very close to bars, restaurants and shops. Check in was easy as I had already checked in on line. We just had to pick our key card up. Our room was spacious and very clean. We... More

We re-visited this Premier Inn after having a wonderful stay last year. Didn't think it could get better but it did. The location for the city centre is great and although in the Centre you would never know by the quietness in the rooms. On arrival we were booked in early by a very friendly member of staff. Every staff... More

I am totally shocked by some of the excellent reviews on here, I had a terrible experience. Despite the location and the room being comfortable and clean there was nothing good about this place! The room didn't even have an hairdryer or iron which is usually pretty standard and no phone, so if you need anything you have to go... More

Perfect location was a city break in Durham. The receptionist was very helpful and obliged with a quiet room for our 2 night stay. Travelled to Durham by train which was an easy walk to the Premier Inn. The cathedral was beautiful, not to be missed. The champagne bar near the hotel was a lovely place to sit outside in... More

We travelled as a family of four and originally we were allocated a triple room plus a cot, which felt a bit cramped. My youngest just started walking and after seeing him banging his head a couple of times I decided to ask if we could be moved to a bigger, proper family room. The fantastic girl at reception immediately... More

Stayed for three nights for my daughter's graduation. The best Premier Inn I've stayed in - it's relatively new, it has lifts to all floors, very quiet rooms (no noise from inside the hotel or outside), clean and comfortable rooms. Downstairs bar/restaurant area very useful. Centrally located. Parking is in a public car park just behind the hotel but residents... More

Stayed here for 1 night in Jan 2015. Easy 10 min walk from Railway Station. Rooms are basic but great value for money. Lots of storage plus tea/coffee making facilities. Room was spotless. Check in very easy and prompt and we got our room allocated to us on arrival even though we were early. Very impressed. The restaurant was excellent.... More
