We stayed three nights at this hotel as it is convenient for visiting relatives.
We asked for a ground floor room which was spacious with a settee to sit on, a plus for us. The room is basic and as others have said, a bit tired, but it was perfectly clean and comfortable, apart from the level of heat in the room.
the heater was set to 24 degrees and couldn't be changed. The staff tried for us and were also unsuccessful. There was a small fan in the room which helped a little but not a great deal. It was a glorious weekend weather wise so this may not be an issue on cooler days.Other members of our party had rooms at the rear which seemed to be a bit cooler.
Our room looked out over the car park which could be a bit noisy with people coming from the pub being a bit on the loud side. for this reason, I'd recommend asking for a room at the rear of the hotel.
The staff were exceptionally good and nothing was too much trouble. They are a credit to Premier Inn.
The Beefeater inn ajoining the hotel is very good indeed and I'd really recommend it. We only visited there for our evening meals but the food was very good indeed. It seems very popular so booking is recommended, even for late afternoon. One tip, don't book online after about 3pm as the restaurant don't seem to receive it.
I will certainly stay here again when coming to visit relative and I look forward to seeing the result of the refurbishment. Hopefully then I will be able to give a higher star rating but for now I can't rate this as highly as some of the other Premier inns that I've stayed in. The staff are up there with the best though.
