Stayed here on a Saturday night, whilst attending an event at the Gala Theatre, which is virtually next door. Really enjoyed every aspect of the stay. Rang in advance requesting a quiet room, given that it was a Saturday night, and the hotel is is in the city centre. The room was excellent, certainly quiet, clean, good sized, well decorated...

Room fine for budget hotel. Made mistake of having an evening meal here. Burger just ok - chose burger as difficult to get wrong I mistakenly thought! Cole slaw consisted of shreds of cabbage and carrot which had clearly never heard of the existence of mayonnaise; French fries were hard and over cooked and cold. Waitress apologetic for how long...

I was suddenly surprised to find all the staff at my table when to my amazement they presented me with a bottle of wine and... More

Great location when visiting Durham City Centre. Convenient parking. Very friendly, helpful, and accommodating staff. Small but comfortable by US standards. Only problem was trying to book on line from US. Their system wouldn't accept a US telephone number and wouldn't allow you to complete the booking without a telephone number. Had to call the hotel for a work around.... More

my husband and I stayed here for 4 nights while visiting durham and the surrounding area. We found the hotel staff to be very friendly and helpful. The hotel itself is central to the city centre, clean and well maintained. We were on the first floor and as the room had secondary glazing we heard no outside noise. The car... More

New build in town centre. Great location right next to precinct with lots of eateries. Standard room - just what you expect from a Premier. Comfortable bed as usual and basic bathroom. The hotel has it's own pleasantly decorated little restaurant on the ground floor. I didn't eat at night but the cooked breakfast was pretty decent. Only drawback was... More

Stayed here for 4 nights at the beginning of Sept. The location is great, just a few minutes walk to the market square and the cathedral. It is also about 10 mins walk from the Railway station but be prepared for steep steps and busy roads. There is an entertainment complex right beside it with a theatre, several bars and... More

Just like all premier inns, they only offer a respite and nothing special. Room was comfortable. Was ok for noise but located on ground floor meant quite a few bangs from doors in the morning. Service was good and car park right next door.

I've stayed at numerous Premier Inns as they are hard to beat for value and you know what to expect. My friend and I tend to use them for our girls weekends and this was our first stay at the Premier Inn in Durham. It's in a great location, a short walk into town and a few minutes walk behind...
