Have just returned from a 2 night stay at the Premier Inn Bishop Auckland.
For the price paid, the accommodation was excellent. The staff were all exceptionally friendly and cheerful.
We had the 'meal deal 'at the adjacent Brewers Fayre with breakfast and evening meal. That entitled you to the breakfast (very good) and evening meal.
I'm not sure that I would go for the evening meal option again. You get a choice of 3 courses, plus a drink, from a cut-down range of options in the main restaurant menu. I'd still go for the convenience of the adjacent Brewers Fayre for an evening meal, but choose a main course from the wider menu, but that's just a personal thing.
We went there as we are buying a property in the area and were shopping around for things. As it turned out, that area of town had most national retailers on the doorstep and plenty of local ones too - and Darlington/A1/Tyneside are only a short drive away for those missing.
The hotel is very well maintained. One of the managers was doing a daily late-night audit of exterior lights to discuss with the electrician coming the next day. You can see that they look after the property.
All in all - an excellent choice.
