Travellers' Choice
You can live on the edge at the Premier Inn Hotel Durham East. That's because we're conveniently positioned on the city's outskirts - just seven minutes from the station by taxi, and right on the doorstep for business at the Belmont, Peterlee and Dragonville industrial estates. But tapping into Durham's cultural heart is every bit as easy, whether you're making for its historic Cathedral and Castle, or famous University. Take your pick from the city's countless events, before taking it easy at the Beefeater restaurant and a blissful night in the comfiest of beds.

Second stay at this hotel and first since the pandemic. Cannot fault anything. Room spotless and staff for whom nothing is too much trouble. Special thanks to Chris who somehow understood my garbled phone explanation of the room we stayed in previously and made sure we had that room again. Look forward to returning.

Hotel's Favourite
We stayed in this Premier Inn, Belmont Industrial Estate from 4th to 7th October 21 and had a very pleasant time. Our room 119, was in a quiet position and fulfilled all our requirements. All the staff members were very pleasant and helpful in making sure that your stay was the best possible. A special mention must go to Georgia on reception who was particularly outstanding in surpassing all our needs and requirements and even helped us to get a taxi to take us to our restaurant (la Spada) when so many taxis that we had tried were all too busy for at least an hour, which would have been too late for our table. There was ample parking available on site and rather than drive into the city, we took the No20 bus (a 7/8 minute walk to the bus stop and every 12/13 mins) at £1.70 to avoid the hassle of city parking and the volume of local traffic. As the hotel is on the outskirts of the city, it was well located to gain access to the A roads to explore further afield, with a parking space always available when you returned. We would certainly stay here again on any future visits to Durham.

A return visit to this Premier Inn, we have been many times over the years. The rooms are clean and tidy, comfortable beds and modern bathrooms. The staff at Durham East are always friendly and smiling, we have got to mention Rona who has a wonderful personality also Eilidh, hope the spelling is correct. who went above and beyond in sorting out our invoice. it was a problem with our leisure vouchers and she did a fantastic job. We hope to return soon.
