if you're similar to me and noise sensitive - dont stay here, especially if you're here on business. forget it if you need to concentrate and work late at night - walls are so thin you will hear everything. I don't believe it be acceptable hearing people walking about above you, let alone hear them on the toilet. Distracting, and...

Very friendly staff who were very helpful. Rooms were adequate and very comfortable beds. I would not recommend breakfast as it was over priced and below average quality. There is a multi storey car park behind the hotel which you have to park in, and costs £7.20 when you check out as they stamp the ticket. But the staff were...

My husband and I came here for the weekend of the Christmas Festival in December. The hotel was clean and very comfortable and the staff were very friendly. We had an evening meal in the restaurant on the first night which we enjoyed. Also the bar had a 2 for 1 offer on cocktails. Having read the reviews on here,...

We stayed for two nights over new year and had a great time in Durham city centre. Although we stayed over a very busy period with lots of celibrations and festivities we still had a good nights sleep without any outside noise or disturbance The hotel is very conveniently located with good bars, restaurants and shops on the doorstep.

Good value for money however, always be wary of being allocated a room by a lift!!! This particular hotel doesn't have online or telephone early check in facility. You have to take a chance on the day that there's a room available if you want to check in early. There are facilities to leave luggage at the hotel on your...

The Premier Inn is well situated within close walking distance of the Cathedral and Castle, shops, etc. It is competitively priced and provides very clean, modern and comfortable rooms. The restaurant caters well for breakfast and dinner, but the best thing about the hotel is its wonderful friendly and helpful staff. We highly recommend this hotel.
