“marvleous staff”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

The premier Inns are all of a good standard and this one was no different inside, my room was spotless and spacious and did the trick no problem but what really struck me was the friendliness of the staff and how helpful they were and I always believe that that deserves recognition. I recevied a friendly welcome, I was able to get into my room early, and they were great with all my enquiries. Breakfast served across the road in the diner was spot on, plenty of it and again the staff could not be more helpful or friendly. Thankyou.

This premier inn was up to the usual good standard - clean, helpful staff, etc. The only issue was that it was a bit to far outside of Durham itself. To go anywhere you had to drive which was a bit disappointing. Also we had a problem with noise from the floor above which was dealt with in the usual professional way.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the upper floor.

A good standard Premier Inn, friendly welcome, quiet, clean room (rooms are set well off the road, those at the back are even quieter), help getting a taxi when we needed one and only a short taxi ride to town.

The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The room had everything we needed and was clean. Location is very quiet with shops within walking distance and a Brewers Fayre next door for reasonably priced food. Park and ride into Durham less than a mile away so very convenient for getting into the city.

We chose this hotel as it was conveniently located for Beamish Village and the hotel had a promotional offer on at the time.

This was our the final leg of our whistle stop tour taking in Liverpool, Edinburgh and Beamish Village.

Although this hotel was the oldest of the three Premier Inns that we had stayed in, (still had room keys as apposed to a key card) you couldn't fault the service and cleanliness of the rooms.

Every member of staff that we came in contact with, both reception and cleaning staff, were very polite and helpful and in particular we would like to thank Mark in reception who arranged discount tickets for us when we visited Beamish Village.

Very very impressed with our first stay in a Premier Inn, it was excellent the room was roomy & smart & the bathroom was "spotless" with the best shower ever....the reception staff were very friendly & helpful, we took advantage of the meal deal offered & were not disappointed...will definitely stay in a Premier Inn again.
