History, culture and entertainment come together at Premier Inn Hotel Durham City Centre (Walkergate) - less than half a mile from the World Heritage Centre by the River Wear. Business hot spots such as the University, Passport Office and North Durham Hospital are also close at hand. Get into Durham's spirit with a visit to its famous Cathedral. Or get under its skin at the city's Norman Castle, home to University College, Durham. With a packed events calendar year round - including the Great North Run, Miners' Gala and more - this makes a perfect central retreat, complete with comfy beds and a tasty Thyme restaurant on-site.

This hotel is about 10 minutes walk from Durham station and has an adjacent car park (though there is a discounted charge for parking there). The location is just a few minutes easy walk from the city centre, but is remarkably quiet and relaxing. Room and facilities are up to the best Premier Inn standards (it includes the upgrade 'Plus' rooms and we had one of those) and the breakfast buffet was excellent. Would strongly recommend staying here for a visit to Durham.

Once again I have stayed at this Premier Inn. Each and every one of the staff I encountered couldn’t have been more helpful and friendly. I stay in a lot of Premier inns and this is by far and away the best. Nothing to do with the location, the hotel itself but the brilliant staff that makes this place so good. I could name check a couple of the staff but they’re a great little team, you can tell by the friendly atmosphere. Thanks guys See you all next week.

I just want to say how excellent the hotel and service is at this Hotel. A special shout out for Paul at breakfast, who was so good and went out of his way to have everything ready for us. We left around 6.15am and genuinely appreciated his service and cheerful demeanour. Thanks everyone

The staff here are so friendly! Big shout out to Bobbie-Leigh, Robbie and Gillian for helping me get checked in early. Customer service was great. The room was nice and clean and in a great location next to the nightlife but still very quiet

The hotel is ideally situated and easy to get to, with a large carpark next door. The room was comfortable, clean and tidy however in the hot drinks area there were no decaf coffee or hot chocolate options. As 2 vegetarians my daughter and I chose not to have a full breakfast but go for the continental instead and she was very excited as smoothies and pancakes were included in that options, something we don't do at home so she was really looking forward to having as a treat, however on the day, neither of these were available. Also as someone who doesn't drink tea of coffee she asked if she could have a hot chocolate at breakfast and was told that wasn't an included option and she would have to pay an extra 50p. There was a voucher to get a discount for overnight parking, which you got from a ticket machine at reception. Unfortunately when I scanned it, the machine wouldn't accept it as the number of times the code could be used had been exceeded. Our stay overall was fine, the staff were pleasant and the building comfortable, but these little things left me leaving the place disappointed

The team here were spot on, location is great to keep you in the middle of the action . Rooms as always with premier inn are spot on and the needs again as always are comfy. Cant complain at the cost if you book early enough and parking to the rear is good
