My wife and I use the Ripley Premier Inn regularly for family visiting coupled with leisure time. The beds are comfortable and the bathroom has a good shower and the whole place is kept clean. The staff are friendly and helpful. BUT there are no drawers and no wardrobe doors for guests staying more than overnight. So one tends to have to live out of a suitcase on the floor which is not at all convenient. The wonderful shower is mounted over a nice clean, but fairly high sided bath and there are no grab handle(s) fitted to the back wall. Since many guests we note are mature, that is an important oversight. We sometimes feel it is a little pricey for just a quite basic small room with no normal hotel/B&B furniture - everything in the open and only a little shelf space and no breakfast included either! The associated Brewers Fayre Bar/Restaurant looks OK - but each time we tried it, the expensive breakfasts were yuk and evening dinners might be only slightly better but the service is irritatingly slow/forgetful. So we have found alternative places locally to breakfast & dine. But overall, if one accepts the drawbacks, the staff are great and a good night's sleep is guaranteed at this hotel and it has it's own parking (shared with the bar restaurant). It is unfortunately not on any bus route. Nearest fuel is at Sainsbury's supermarket 5 mins drive away.
