My wife and I have stayed in different Premier Inns and Durham East maintains their normal high standards. A flat screen tv in the room would have been more up to date than the old CRT that was in our room especially as we had three nights but for just an overnight visit that would probably be ok.
It was the restaurant that let down the hotel. Although breakfasts were served efficiently and quickly (part was self-service anyway) dinner in the evening was another story! Very slow service on each of the evenings - on one occasion waiting for nearly an hour for the starter to be brought to the table. If this had been just a single visit, we might have thought it was a one-off but we experienced this slow service over three nights in succession. So, in conclusion... great hotel - just eat elsewhere in the evenings.
