Stay at this hotel every year with family and have done so for many years. Fabulous location especially for the Gala Theatre and places to eat and drink before the shows. Discounted rate in multi storey car park. Rooms as always are clean and staff absolutely fabulous. They are polite, helpful and friendly without being in your face. Unfortunately breakfast...

The Durham Premier Inn was very comfortable and the price paid very competitive. The location of the Durham City Premier Inn is just off the City Center shopping and pub scene so ideal for a short city break. There is no parking allocated at this location however, but there is plenty of parking available at a charge.

Fantastic room, location and staff. We did not eat here so can't comment on food. The menu looked lovely though and reasonably priced. We stayed in a family room with my husband and two children. The room was huge compared to some hotel rooms we have stayed in.

Excellent spot for nightlife and theatre. Staff are very helpful and friendly. Rooms are immaculately clean. Bath and a shower, hairdryer and tea & coffee in the rooms. Small bar area but adequate size.

Spent Christmas here while visiting family in Durham. First two nights were excellent and the room and staff were helpful, polite and cheerful. Boxing Day night ruined by excessively loud music being played in a local night club/bar "Chiquita" directly opposite the side of the hotel we were accommodated in. This "racket" finally subsided post 2.am. We spoke to staff...

Room was freezing cold. Heating didn't work. Provided with an electric heater which wasn't much good either. Resulted in a poor and uncomfortable nights sleep. Staff were as helpful as they could be in the circumstances so cannot blame them. Premier Inn need to sort the issues out!

Superb location on the riverside. Excellent breakfast, rooms, as usual at Premier Inn, very clean. One major problem is the noise from local nightclubs that goes on until 3am. Council parking is close by and at Christmas it was free but at other times the cost will add up for an extended stay
