My husband and myself travelled To the premier inn in Durham City centre. We had a lovely break as the hotel is in a ideal location. The staff were very pleasant and nothing was too much trouble. I would definitely stay again

Great value considering the location - good sized, clean rooms. The breakfast was not as good as in other premier inns I have visited, there were not very many healthy breakfast options - it seemed to focus more on cooked items / pastries.

Once again another great weekend at the central Premier Inn. Staff and service and location etc. all amazing. Everyone is so friendly especially young Cameron ( our wee Joe from Durham) who is always so welcoming and provides excellent customer service and always smiling and makes sure we are always looked after well. He remembered us from our last visit...

Very difficult to find late at night as the hotel and car park are not illuminated. I drove round the one way system several times, only to find I was correct in the first place! All ok and usual Premier Inn standards once checked in.

We chose this place for the location and found the whole stay much better than expected. Friendly staff, comfortable room, good food. No frills, just value for money. Car parking was a short walk from the hotel and cost extra.

Stayed for a family Christmas break and I have to stay it was a great hotel. Centrally located for Durham and the staff were extremely helpful and nothing was any trouble. Special thanks to Jack who was very personable and went the extra mile. Would stay again.

Clean room and very friendly staff made for an enjoyable short stay very close to Durham centre. Great for Christmas shopping, sight seeing and visits to local pubs. We got a very competitive room rate for a comfortable double with all the usual amenities.

I have stayed at this hotel a few times, and found it to be good value for money - clean, comfortable accommodation, only a short walk away from the Market Place. Parking is available at a reduced rate (£7.50 for 24 hours) at the Walkergate car park which is just behind the hotel. The Premier Inn website doesn't state this...
