Staff were friendly and answered lots of our questions about various places. Check in was very easy. Our room was fine but we found the beds and pillows too hard for our liking but am sure that was just us. It was quiet inside the hotel even though we were next door to lots of restaurants and theatre. Also not... More

Though the hotel is about 600 yards fom the station its up (or down) 92 steps which can make it hard if you have heavy luggage. So don't let its proximity on the map deceive you. The hotel is OK, bedrooms good sized with wardrobe space and a large en suite - its ventilation didn't work that well. The wi... More

We had our evening meal in the hotel, it was very good and reasonably priced. After a good nights sleep and a good breakfast,... More

I had enough of taking in the spectacular vista so went to the bar,again very nice people The hotel is very central to lots of restaurants and... More

It's a modern building very close to the town centre - 10 min walk to the Cathedral, less to the square. It's a steep walk if you stick to the road, but instead take the lift inside the adjacent multi-storey car park and exit level with the square. The rooms were clean and fairly large by Premier Inn standards. The... More

Lovely hotel. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was very filling and lovely choice. Has a quiet time from 10pm till 7am so ideal for families with young children. Ideally located for center of Durham. Have to park in multi storey, get ticket validated at reception for cheaper parking fees.

A great place to stay for central Durham. The covered parking at Walkergate is close to hand and Premier Inn guests can get their ticket validated at reception on the day of departure and pay £7.70 instead of the normal £9.90 for an overnight stay. Other open air parking is available at £6.00 for 24 hours. We didn't eat here... More
