“Clean and convenient”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 October 2012

Stayed here with a group of people after a night out. Works out about the same price as getting a taxi home! Excellent central location for bars and restaurants. The rooms are a decent size and very clean. I would not stay here for a special occasion or romantic break but it's very convenient for an overnight stay.

Stayed here for a few days city break in July’12 – a very pleasant stay.
Great location for walking around the city, varied restaurants and the people of Durham are friendly.
Took the TA reviewers advice and got there for 3:00PM and asked for a quiet room.
Staff were polite and efficient. Breakfast is waiter service for the hot food and buffet for the remainder – saw Raddison Hotel guests walking over the bridge to have breakfast here!!.
We have stayed in 4 star hotels that have less going for them than this hotel.

Stayed weekend of 22nd & 23rd of Sept, excellent location right in the city centre.Does not have it's own parking but you get discounted parking at rear in the multi storey (works out at £7 per 24hrs). Staff are a credit to the company, very professional and attentive with everything explained on arrival. Room was clean and comfortable. Set to return soon.

Stayed here for one night in June. Premier Inn do very well in maintaining their standards at a national level and this was no different. A very comfortable clean hotel room and bed, great breakfast, and friendly staff. The room I had was very quiet, and its also right in the city centre.

Stayed here to help my student get settled in Durham University. The hotel is very good for that. Great location close to University and in a pinch you can walk to the train station. Very clean. Staff were pleasant and helpful. Close also to a number of fantastic restaurants and pubs. Lovely bar and good breakfast plan.

Room Tip: Do not take Room 1 - it is close to recycling bins outside.

We were agreeably surprised at the standard of this budget hotel. The location was ideal for all the attractions in Durham City. The welcome and efficiency of the young man on reception is to be commended. The room was spotlessly clean and the beds very comfortable. Parking in the nearby multi-storey car park was most convenient for a city centre hotel and at £7.50 - good value. The only downside was the noise of revellers at 2am, but that is not the fault of Premier Inns.
Breakfast was very good although my wife and I would prefer not to be referred to as "Guys".
However, all in all our stay was hassle-free and most comfortable.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room away from street noise.
