This hotel is close to the station and right in the heart of Durham City so is perfect for sightseeing. The room was clean and comfortable and all staff l encountered were friendly and pleasant. Reliable and trusty, just what you would expect from a Premier Inn. Good value for money too.

We stayed here to visit Sedgefield Racecourse. It was a great location to tour the city. Although it might seem inaccessible to disabled users on Google Earth, there are lifts available to take you up to street level. The Hotel was pleasant and friendly with rooms accommodated with the norm. We ate there on the first night but the food...

The hotel staff was excellent from check in to check out. I had never heard of Premier Inn's until this visit to the UK, but found the facility to be all that I needed for the short time I was in Durham.

A very clean & friendly hotel close to the city centre. Although the car park isn't part of the hotel, discount is available at the reception. Just a few minutes walk to the market square & 10-15 minutes walk to the cathedral.

Situated in the city centre near to bars, restaurants & shops. Very good standard of accommodation as with all premier inns, always immaculately clean. Public car park just out the back but this comes at an additional cost.

We stayed in Durham on a Saturday night in April 2017. The hotel is easy to access, close to the city centre and there is nearby charged parking. Check in was quick and easy, and we had a couple of drinks in the small bar. The room was typical Premier Inn, extremely comfy bed, reasonably sized bathroom with lots of...

Being a regular user of this company we found this one to be dated and tired looking. Our initial reception for our pre booked 3 night stay was rather cool and clinical but the request for a high floor room was met but unfortunately was located on the side adjacent to a very popular retail outlet consisting of bars and...

Good Afternoon, Thanks for taking the time to review our hotel. It's such a shame your stay fell below the usual standard you've experienced with Premier Inn and you decided to end your stay sooner than planned. As we always want our guests to enjoy all aspects of their stay it's very disappointing you had issues with your key card...

The hotel itself is typical Premier Inn.The food is good, a small bar to relax in and rooms up to standard. HOWEVER,the nightclub nearby fired up at 10:30pm and kept me awake till 3am when it shut!! Not such a good night sleep guaranteed!

Thank Simon B
