Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 March 2014

Premier Inn Central is the best Premier Inn I have EVER stayed in which includes USA. Would definitely stay here again and recommend it to family and friends. So handy to the theatre, shops, and pier. Overall a very good choice and will be staying there again.

Great hotel in great location. Nice and clean. Staff very helpful. Booked online and couldn't fault the room for 2 people for £25 for the night. Would stay again for a short break with lots to do in the area. Didn't try restaurant but looked very good.

Great location, lovely room with sea view and good customer service. Just make sure you book the restaurant if you want to have dinner. Breakfast was nice good choice.
Try and book online as its cheaper. Would definitely stay again for a weekend.

Restaurant was very nice, but the service was somewhat slow (took 30 mins) when we ordered deserts. Price very reasonable for room. Plenty of choice for breakfast and dinner. Room was very comfortable. Location is great, situated very close to shops, restaurants and cinemas :)

Really surprised with the wonderful location of hotel - right in centre but still fairly quiet - also fantastic views of seafront (not all rooms). Very efficient and friendly staff - budget prices but overall better than some more expensive chains

When rating hotels of course price is a large component, your experience is all based on the value you feel you got for your money. Unfortunately on this occasion were not able to get a cheap rate so have rated this as average, as on balance the price we paid vs our experience was just that. Had we paid only £29 per night this easily would have got 5 stars from me.

The hotel itself is hard to fault, clean throughout with helpful staff. When the fuse tripped in our room in the early hours of the morning they had someone up to us within a minute of our phone call to them.

Our room was large and spacious. The beds as with most, if not all Premier Inns was very comfortable. Initially it appeared that we only had one large towel to share between the two of us, however we were able to find a second in the wardrobe under the extra pillows. As with most hotels they had a notice suggesting to us if we were there for more than one night that if the towels did not need to be changed to hang them back on the rail. Unfortunately the shower was so leaky that all our towels were sodden and weneeded fresh ones.

The location of the hotel is fantastic, it is less than 5 minutes from the towncentre in one direction and less than 5 minutes from the beach, pier and aquarium in the other. The BIC is only a few minutes further than that.

A small criticism would be regarding parking, it is not obvious where the parking for the hotel is and we found it by accident. It is all the way around the back of the hotel and even with the discount applied by the hotel expensive. We did not see any signs distinguishing the parking as affiliated with Premier Inn. However, you are able to access the hotel directly from inside the car park.

Overall I would recommend this hotel if a saver rate was available, if not I would be inclined to look at other hotels that were the same cost.

Fast and smooth check in with a polite and friendly member of staff. Room is done to a very high spec and immaculately clean. We could not find a single fault with this hotel. Great location, comfy, clean, modern, nice staff, great price. Would highly recommend!
