Premier Inn Durham City Centre
Ranked #4 of 18 Hotels in Durham
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 July 2017

All the things that you expect and commonly get at UK Premier Inns are here in the centre of Durham - rooms with comfy beds, clean and good showers and adequate wifi for all users. You get a bit more at Durham City: a really warm welcome when you arrive and each time you return to the hotel; cheerful and helpful staff; constantly well-stocked breakfast buffet even when approaching the end-time and generally smooth operations and service.

The location is perfect for castle/cathedral and also for city bars and restaurants. Avoid rooms facing the busy restaurants (especially Fri/Sat) if you re light or early sleepers.

Room Tip: Ask for quiet room if in doubt.

If you are registering late in the evening, do not hang about in your room as last orders in the restaurant is effectively 9.45 pm, although it states the restaurant closes at 10.00 pm. which it does and if late ordering are not under any pressure to eat quickly by the staff, however the kitchen has wound down so stops cooking from 9.45 pm which is understandable although somewhat confusing.

Went during university geaduation week. £145 for one night. Normally around £50. Unbelievably poor value for money. All hotels in Durham seemed to do this. Not very convenient to have parking in separate mulri-storey town car park. Close but not on site. Had to pay extra for that too.

I have stayed twice here while visiting my daughter at Durham University. It's a good place to stay at a good price. It's a few minutes walk to the nter of the town and no more than 10 minutes from the train station.
The rooms were clean and comfortable. The premier breakfast is decent, but for 9 pounds, you could probably eat at a cafe in the city.
The staff was very professional and handled the graduation crowds well.
The only downside is that the hotel is up several flights of steps to the city center... although there are elevators that you can use. It was fine for us but a little difficult for the grandparents in our party.
