First time we have stayed at a Premier Inn, was pleasantly surprised how clean and modern the rooms were, and the plentiful supply of hot water was a bonus. Beds were comfortable. Staff were really helpful and friendly, and the access from the A167 good, also a good sized car park, which we still managed to get parked on on the saturday evening even though everywhere seemed very busy. Very helpful to have the directions from the adjacent retail park on the confirmation e-mail, as our sat nav like everyone elses sent us there. Sorry, but unable to recommend the food in the attched Brewers Fayre, we found it poor quality, and that (in an evening) most things came with chips, although the staff were friendly and helpful. We were a bit disappointed with the all you can eat breakfast, you have to order your hot food and it is brought to your table, so if you're hoping to choose that nice piece of crispy bacon, or well done sausage etc forget it. Cereals, bread for toasting etc were buffet style. Were impressed how quiet the hotel was at night. We had thought on the Saturday night it would be noisy as we were there for an event taking place nearby over the weekend with an evening function on the Saturday, and there were quite a few people staying at this hotel who were attending the function and we were anticipating noise from people returning in the early hours, which didn't happen. The receptionist said in the morning when we commented to her on this, that she had reminded people as they returned to remember people were asleep and to respect their right for a decent nights sleep. In summary I would say this is a decent Premier Inn with friendly and helpful staff, but the Brewers Fayre lets it down. Can't comment on the accessaability into Durham as we were there to attend a nearby event, and we chose this Premier Inn for it's proximity to that, we were not staying there to visit Durham itself.
