Premier Inn Durham City Centre
Ranked #4 of 18 Hotels in Durham
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 March 2014

We stayed at Durham City Premier Inn for a 24 hour stay revising our favourite haunts in this lovely city. The hotel is in a great location, less than 5 minutes from the market place, and there is an arrangement with a nearby car park to pay a reduced rate for a 24 hour stay. The staff were friendly and welcoming and, as with all Premier Inns, the rooms were very clean, with a very comfortable bed, hot shower etc. It's a comfortable, convenient base from which to explore this amazing city.

Stayed here recently one if the better premier inns bit awkward to get to car park late at night so worth calling ahead get verbal directions. Checked in late and had food late too but all the time greeted and served by friendly chatty staff. Would stay again plus slept ok too and decent TVs in room too a big plus! Still poor wifi and chargeable so hope that happens one day free and a good speed! Would use premiers more often if wifi included.

This is a comfortable, affordable hotel near to the city centre so handy for shopping or visiting the cathedral and castle. The rooms are comfortable and you are guaranteed a good night sleep or you get your money back. The staff are very friendly and do what they can to make your stay enjoyable.

Good location and pleasant staff. Rooms well appointed and comfortable. Difficult to find fault. The one tip to bear in mind? Get a room facing the leisure centre. The rest (facing the complex of bars and restaurants) can be noisier at night.

We stayed here one night whilst attending an event at the Gala Theatre. Hotel is very well located for the theatre and also for the City. The hotel doesn't have its own car park but there is a multi - storey close by and another car park a little down the road. The hotel emailed parking instructions
which were clear and helpful.
The staff were friendly and obliging. The hotel is clean, was quiet at night with a decent breakfast.
