Nice and clean as usual. Good location right near the Riverside area and accompanying shopping park. Lots of parking on site. About 10 minute walk into the city centre. Also if you are travelling in by train this is just opposite the station. Will definitely use again .

Stopping here for a long weekend. We stayed in the the newly opened wing - as always it was very clean, the rooms a good size and the staff very professional. The bar & restaurant actually looks like a proper pub rather than the usual Harvester style eatery - food, drink & service to a good standard. This Premier Inn... More

Therefore, the Operation's Manager, Bradley, offered to take us!! That is what... More

The hotel is in a perfect location, near to the city, everything is within 5-15 mins walk and for those who do not drive, the hotel is opposite the train station. The premier inn staff are so helpful and friendly and nothing... More

Staff were genuinely helpful and friendly. Room was very clean and having extra teabags and milk was not an issue. Food was excellent and plenty of variety. Our waiter Ben on both nights was brilliant. Lovely sense of humour.

Brilliant stay - staff are a credit to the company. Breakfast good as usual. Fantastic location, free car parking! Very comfortable bed. Great value. Negatives: slightly grotty sealant in the bathroom. Curtains let in quite a bit of light. Nothing major!

Excellent midweek break. Very comfortable, very warm and peaceful nights' sleep. River location is lovely with plenty of bars, restaurants and entertainment a short walk away. City centre is a comfortable walk away.
