“Durham city Premier inn”
Reviewed 19 February 2014

Excellent stay, staff were outstanding. Very polite and helpful. Car parking wasn't brill. Multi storey not easy to get out of and the other available car park meant having to move the car a couple of times to re-issue a ticket.
Good, clean hotel, good value, especially if visiting students at the university.
A bit loud at night, due to it being surrounded by a few night bars and restaurants, but this didn't cause too many issues. Not too far from the centre.

This hotel is as good as the other reviewers have said it is. A useful tip in using the car park beside the hotel is when you drive in you are automatically directed to floor 2', when you reach there follow the signs to the exit and go down to the entry level which is floor 1' from here you can go straight out the door and you arrive at the side of the hotel.

Room Tip: We were on the 3rd floor at the back of the hotel overlooking the neighbouring restaurants and cinem...

I stayed at this hotel with my boyfriend for a night after having an afternoon in Durham. The location of this hotel is slap bang in the middle of the bars however not so close that its noisey! The room was really nice, lovely big bed and its all very clean. Breakfast was on until late which was very handy for a sleep in. My only complaint is that the bed was two single mattress's pushed together rather than just one which created a ridge in the middle. Overall would stay again!

This hotel is right in the heart of Durham with 2 car parks minutes form the door. The hotel staff are excellent and the rooms are large and very modern. Everything about the rooms is excellent, they are clean, warm and comfortable with large flat screen tv with superb picture quality. The restaurant was pleasant and food reasonably priced.

If you are thinking about a short stay in a small(ish) city, head for Durham.
I was extremely impressed even though I know Durham quite well having worked in the area (based in Newcastle) for many years, but this was the first time we had stayed there. The weather helped. It was February and the south was in turmoil with the floods etc and this did make the River Wear quite dramatic. The city is small enough to walk all over and has lots of "things to do".
If you want to stay in the centre then the Premier Inn City Centre Hotel is the place to book. Cheap for City Centre hotels. Amazing value for money. Good parking with a multi-storey behind for longer stays and a public one opposite the reception for an overnight stay. The staff at the hotel were great and despite an extremely large building construction immediately opposite, the triple glazing worked a treat. To be honest it was a Sunday night that we stayed so maybe it might be slightly more busy mid-week but that's only temporary. .
