Stayed for one Saturday night in order to attend the Rugby League Magic Weekend at nearby Newcastle. The hotel is ideally situated in the center of Durham. The hotel is the closest to the railway station where Newcastle can be reached in 12 minutes . There are plenty of pubs clubs and chain type restaurants close to the hotel. Booking...

Great customer service, great location, great staff, great food. Even the free wifi is great! Room was on ground floor so external noise levels were a little high when the party people were on their way home but other than that, the stay was wonderful!

I have been fortunate to have stayed in many lovely hotels around the world and many have been more luxurious, but I have never stayed anywhere where the staff have all been so friendly and welcoming. Its true then - the folks really are more friendly up north! Not once were we greeted with less than a friendly smile and...

This was my first stay in the Premier Inn after recommendations from a family member and from reading other Trip Advisor feedback. The hotel is in a central location, in an area of Durham that has been redeveloped in the 21st century, next to the Gala theatre and the public swimming pool. It's an easy walk to the "peninsula" of...

We were very impressed with this Premier Inn, we stayed four nights. Very friendly staff who couldn't do enough for us, nothing was too much trouble. Great food and a great location. Would definitely stay again if we return to Durham.

I stayed in a family room with my husband and child for two nights in June. Room was comfortable, clean and spacious. Television had a good selection of channels for everyone, bathroom was clean but didn't have the usual supply of toiletries except for soap. Room was well-equipped with necessities such as a kettle, spare pillows and extra child's bed....
