I stayed one night at the Premier Inn Alveston. I was dropped off from a taxi having arrived at Bristol Parkway station. The lack of public transport added a £20 cost to my stay, but the room was a lower end price, and overall, I think the cost of £39 was reasonable.
I struggled with the stairs with three bags, and my room was right at the end of a long walk on the second floor. The room was clean, if a bit faded, and the furniture was adequate for my needs, with a large desk area, where I could work and eat (I have food allergies so have to self-cater when I am away from home) and good hanging space.
The overflow in the hand basin smelled nasty, and parts of the bathroom decor were showing water damage, e.g. the bath panel was coming apart at the bottom edge. The tile grouting was discoloured in places.
The receptionist was friendly and dealt well with my registration (I had pre-booked), and was also on duty when I checked out the next morning. She let me leave my two bags in the back of the reception area in the morning (which was incredibly untidy and very shabby looking!) I joined my colleagues at breakfast, but did not eat there, as there was nothing on the menu that I could have.
I hope the renovations will result in improved facilities and a more up to date look. If I was in the area again for business, I would probably book again.
