We stayed at the Durham Premier Inn for two nights at a great price to attend our friend's fabulous wedding! We were very impressed with the hotel. Excellent location in the heart of the city. Bit tricky to find initially though but soon found as the hotel sent me a text message the day before with directions. Very helpful! There is no hotel car park but you can use the multi-storey right next door to it at a discounted rate, which we were informed about and our ticket was scanned to include the discount. Very comfortable rooms and exceptionally comfy beds, which lives up to the promise! The room was quiet and the breakfast was unbelievably good and extremely generous. The cooked breakfast was to order and service very speedy. The staff were very helpful and cared about our stay and needs. In Durham, you could use the swimming pool and leisure facilities which are next door too, so pack your costume! Durham itself is very beautiful, with cobbled streets, an amazing cathedral and castle. We will be returning to Durham to explore more and we will be staying at more Premier Inns!

Arrived to a warm welcome from reception and the bar staff who gave us all the info needed for our stay. Room was lovely, very comfortable and clean, loved the blackout curtains and how quiet it was inside the hotel. Perfect location for the centre, bars and restaurants and the cathedral. Great stay, will definatley return.

This was the first time I have stayed in a Premier Inn. The City Centre had excellent reviews and although I paid the price for not booking early enough I did request a quiet room. On arrival I was allocated a room on the first floor immediately above the air conditioning system with a rather nasty humming noise. I went back down stairs and requested another room. This time I found the room had a door connecting the room to a neighbouring room occupied by someone who was anything but quiet. I’m not sure why my request was so difficult to accommodate as the hotel was far from full.

This is a centrally located hotel in the city near the train station (we walked from the station to the hotel). It has all we have come to expect from Premier Inn - friendly welcome, good service and nice rooms. The ice-cream dispenser in the lobby was handy.

The staff were especially welcoming and efficient. I asked for a firmer pillow and it arrived almost immediately.

There are loads of good eateries around. We didn't have breakfast at the hotel because the cafes outside were cheaper and had more atmosphere. But certainly a very good stay here.

We stayed here again as usual when visiting family in Durham. Probably 5th time now. Great location in the centre of Durham, good friendly welcome, hearty breakfast -no complaints at all -very good value for the four of us certainly better than the Marriott!

Ideally placed for the city centre (1 minute to a great champagne bar) restaurants + all the shops & sights. Considering it's so central, enjoyed a peaceful night. Staff couldn't have been more helpful. As always at Premier Inn - fabulously comfy mattress
