Stayed here for one night with my husband and family and friends. Our room was spotlessly clean and bed was lovely and comfortable. The hotel is only minutes away from city centre so very convenient. Would definitely stay here again if visiting Durham.

Those who arrive by train and want to walk to the hotel will have to contend with a few flights of steps. Ramps seem to be unheard of in this city and the one available lift in Millennium Place was out of order throughout our stay. The hotel is just a few minutes' walk from the city centre and cathedral.... More

This is the 3rd time we have stayed here and again we had a great stay. You can't get any closer to the pubs and shops. It was a bank holiday weekend and the place was heaving, great atmosphere and great hotel.

Excellent location, I was able to get up to the city on my disabi9lity scooter quite easily, although Durham is hilly. The staff were great to start with, even though we were put into the wrong room. Not happy with the way a compliant was handled, and we did not have a phone to reception ( none that I could... More

Stayed here for 1 night in August and it was lovely. Room was clean, tidy and quiet. We ate in the restaurant down stairs and got a great deal on an evening meal and breakfast. Well worth it as the food was delicious. Chris was our waiter and was fantastic, not only to us but to a couple with a... More

Stayed for 1 night with a friend, our twin room was immaculate, the staff very helpful and friendly. The hotel is minutes walk from the bars and restaurants and car parking in the multi story behind the hotel is discounted if staying in the Premier Inn. Will definitely be returning.

Provided the usual high standard of accommodation expected at a Premier Inn. Good location in Millennium Centre close to City's Market Square (accessed via stairs or lift). Air conditioned room with all the usual facilities.

We stayed here for just one night and were very impressed with the hotel, it seemed a bit above other comparable 'chain hotels'. The room was very comfortable and quite spacious, the staff were very friendly and helpful and the breakfast was good. Some of the food was cooked to order which is unusual in my experience. I would definitely... More

Stayed here for 2 nights. Close to all that Durham has to offer. Car park very conveniently situated. Very friendly and helpful staff. Nice room, clean and comfortable. Breakfast is typical buffet style but adequate.

I've stayed in a few Premier Inn's on business and have always been underwhelmed. The beds are always comfy but often the rooms are tired, drab and musty. This was definitely a step up. The room was fresh and clean and had a slightly more luxurious feel than the usual Premier Inn standard. Great location and excellent customer service from... More
