“Very good hotel, shame about the breakfast”
Reviewed 27 October 2013

We stayed in this hotel while visiting St Neots for a wedding. It is situated around 10 minutes away from the St Neots town. There are also many pubs/restaurants close by.
We did initially miss the turning for the hotel and nearly ended up in the other premier inn hotel that is very close, so ensure that you know which hotel that you have booked.
We were greeted by a friendly member of staff who was willing to help and answer any questions about the hotel and area. We had a family room which was very spacious. It included a double bed, two single beds and other basic furniture. The room and bathroom were very clean and were suitable for a short stay.
We didn't book breakfast however, on our second day we decided to use the Chef & Brewer pub that was attached. This was a big mistake as the service was poor and expensive considering what we received. It was £8.25 for a full breakfast which consisted of a cooked and continental selection. We were unaware that the cooked breakfast part was not buffet style like a lot of other premier inn hotels offer. When we finally ordered items for breakfast, there were some items missing and the portions were very small. The continental breakfast was also quite poor. There was a lack of bread,no jams and little butter. The glasses were also very dirty if you were lucky enough to get one! The pub seemed very short staffed especially as it was peak breakfast time.

Overall, I cannot fault the hotel. I would recommend taking a short trip into the town to the Weatherspoons pub for breakfast. I would really recommend the Premier Inn and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again in the future. Just avoid the breakfast!

Good clean room with adequate facilities just as you expect from a premier inn! But don't bother with breakfast which is served next door at The Crown! Not enough staff, no hot water for tea, no cups , no sugar! Hot breakfast was luke warm! The whole pub needs a good clean, dirty tables, dust on windowsills and grubby fabric chairs! Would not eat there again!

We stayed at the Premier Inn which was a bit more outdated than we usually have. The Crown pub next door is however the worst we have visited so far. Uninterested staff who are not up for the job, a really filthy dining area and bad food. Do not go!

I booked a twin room and sure enough the room contained a double and a single bed. But - the single bed was unusable because it felt like the springs were about to burst through the top surface. I defy anybody to have slept on it!

Everything else about our visit was excellent.

Checked In and reception were very friendly and welcoming (Thanks Brownwen!). Ironing board was brought up promptly. The room was prepared for the evening with lights on and curtains drawn which was a nice touch. We used The Crown pub next door and the food was good quality and good atmosphere. Next day was a 20min drive into Cambridge for some sightseeting. Although premier inn is the standard offering every where you go - this one was set apart by great customer care. Will go again sometime..

If you are needing an overnight stay its value for money only on an offer basis
I would not pay the full amount as it is tired looking and could do with an update. The Staff are friendly and do explain what's on offer for your stay including the 'Good Night Sleep'
The Breakfast is very good with a variety to choose from.

The hotel itself was fine, no problems staff friendly and helpful. The nearby pub come restaurant the food general was good, in fact very good but our starters were luke warm to say least. We thought it was a one off as the main course was superb. However breakfast in the morning was again warm and not hot, wonder if the heater on the pass has broken down or you kept the plates in the fridge?
