We stayed four nights here. Clean, well furnished room and bathroom. Excellent, friendly staff. Well stocked bar with craft beers. Parking was expensive -£30 for four nights. I was also concerned that there was no telephone, or any other means of raising the alarm/front desk in this hotel. This is a major security problem, plus an issue if you are... More

Really enjoyed this lovely hotel right in the centre of Durham within walking distance of the Cathedral and Castle. Lots of interesting streets and places of interest. Well done to all the hotel staff. We'll be back. We had a great time at the Miners's Gala and exploring the many attractions including restaurants and bars and shops.

OK let's not get over excited here, it's a budget hotel but for me premier inn have the hotel chain concept spot on and which I only expect with luxury brands. Then for me Durham is the gem (of all the ones I have stayed in). Firstly Premier Inn - they are all exactly the same (near enough) the odd... More

Stayed here for my visit to Durham (2 nights in February). The hotel location is quite strategic: Within walking distance from the Durham train station and being near the city centre, it was also within walking distance to the city centre. The check in service was prompt & professional. The room is basic, but clean and appears to have been... More

We visited the Premier Inn for Durham Miners Gala.Breakfast was lovely,but the most impressive part of my stay was the patience of the staff,namely Lee and Alex,who despite us constantly burdening them with constant requests to re program our key as we went outside for cigarettes,we were pretty drunk and i imagine a bit of a pain.But they dealt with...

Excellent location for seeing all the sights of Durham. Very comfortable. A wee bit noisy at times, but it is a city center after all. Within walking distance of all the main attractions and the station.

We selected this Premier Inn because of its proximity to Durham Cathedral and in that regard, it is perfect. A short walk, up some stairs then a walk through the old town to the cathedral. This Premier inn has the same standard of service in staff helpfulness, the same quality of food and its presentation, and the same quality in... More

Check in was quick and hassle free. Room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was busy but there was plenty of food available. I think it could be noisy on weekends but isnt it the same in any central hotel. Staff were very friendly and helpful.
