We find Premier Inns great, usually for breaking a longer journey and this one didn't disappoint. It is brand new and car parking was more than adequate.
We did have a slight problem with a loud gurgling noise coming from the bathroom sink when the extractor fan kicked in. We reported it and were immediately offered our money back under the "good night's sleep" guarantee" if it couldn't be resolved. It wasn't resolved as such, but we learned to control it by not letting the extractor kick in for too long. By doing that we had an excellent night's sleep and, call me old fashioned, but I didn't activate the refund.
We chose this PI because of its closeness to the Bicester Shopping Village. It's around a 10 minute walk crossing two main roads, a bit shorter if, like us, you cut across the Tesco car park! If you're going to shop for England, I'd recommend taking rhe car to do it because there should be no problem parking at either end.
On a cautionary note, in places the Shopping Village was uncomfortably crowded and this on a Tuesday afternoon!
Back to the PI, the staff were helpful, friendly and courteous and the breakfast at the adjacent Brewer's Fayre was very good. There are no eating or bar facilities at the PI.
Finally, on price, this Premier Inn, because of its closeness to the Shopping Village is unlikely to be offering rooms at £30 a night, but taking everythjing into account it still represented decent value.
