We usually try and stay in a Premier Inn because we think they are good value for money. This newly built hotel has taken the usual Premier Inn plus points and improved them. The decor is more imaginative than the older hotels and the rooms are big and comfortable. The bathrooms are a good size with good lighting and mirrors - all good. However we had a few issues with our room not being serviced on the first day and WiFi was frequently unavailable as the system of codes broke down and the credit card registration also was faulty. I understand that this is a budget chain but I wasn't too happy with being faced with machines to check in. The reception desk was sometimes manned but often unattended.
Finally , the restaurant. Very poor service and average food, just not good enough.
