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.

The hotel is in a central position, and the room was clean and comfortable. The staff are helpful and polite. The food was good value, especially the breakfast, it was also of a high standard as was the evening meal.

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... More

Large car parks nearby( approx 7.50 per day. Very close to the city centre,but the centre is not wheelchair friendly,narrow pavements and cobbles. The in house Thyme restaurant... More

Loved Durham. Small, quaint and beautiful. We came to stay to celebrate our anniversary. The premier inn was in the perfect location. If you're coming to Durham then this is the best place to stay. Top tip though, ask for a front room if possible as the bars and clubs at night can go on a bit at night.
