“Everything Premier - except the price!!!”
Reviewed 11 April 2011

Great stay, with friendly staff - the adjoining restaurant "Table Table" proved excellent value for money with good service on a Saturday evening.

Parking is limited so be prepared to walk from local car park - but this is well advertised at point of booking.

Would book again!

Stayed here for one night with a group of friends and family. Greeted by a very friendly and helpful receptionist who quickly organised check-in - much appreciated by weary walkers keen to get out for dinner. Public areas and rooms are clean, modern and far less flimsy-looking than those in other budget hotels. Great beds, a pile of white towels and a lovely powerful shower too - everything we needed!

We understood the parking issues from previous reviews so no great surprise there.

Location is excellent, with plenty of restaurants within easy walking distance. (We had a great curry at Royal Thwama on Kent Street). Will definitely be returning to Premier Inn when we next head to the Lakes.

The car park is not owned by Premier Inns and is Pay & Display, charges apply between 08.00 and 18.00 Mon/Fri at the rates of £2 for 1 hour, £3 for four hours and £5 all day and the number of spaces is restricted to 15. Parking is free on Saturday and Sunday if you are lucky enough to find a space, alternative overnight parking is located behind nearby Council offices about five minutes away, however the car must be moved before 08.45.
The inconvenience of not being able to find a parking space on return from a day out, coupled with the need to be up sufficiently ealry to purchase a parking ticket by 08.00, completely ruined our intended relaxing few days away.
The hotel fulfilled expectations of cleanliness, comfort and Friendly/helpful staff but is definitely not our list of hotels to re-visit .

Having never used a Premier Inn before I didn't have high expectations but took guidance from Tripadvisor and so glad we did. We loved this hotel. The reception staff were fabulous and couldn't do enough to help us - especially Hannah. The room was quite big and spotless. The bathroom wasn't too big but was clean and modern. Toiletries were minimal - soap dispenser over the wash basin and shower. I do believe you could get extra toiletries from reception but we didn't ask about that. Parking can be difficult as there are not many spaces but Premier Inn do advise you of this. The charge is £5 from 8am to 6pm - Sundays there is no charge. We didn't take the food package but did use he restaurant next door - Table Table for 1 evening meal and it was lovely. Good service and fast too even though it was really busy.

I would recommend this hotel to everyone. The location is superb and whilst we didn't get one of the 'special' deals we were very happy with our stay.

This is a conveniently located and offers terrific value for money for the Lake District (especially if booked ahead). Helpful staff and a decent adjacent pub/restaurant although the parking is limited.

I stayed here recently with my boyfriend and after reading a few reviews had concerns about parking. If you are staying over the weekend then there is no problem with parking at all. There is a car park just around the corner which is free all weekend and is safe. The hotel staff were very friendly and the receptionist upon arrival gave us advice and telephone numbers of some good local restuarants. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

On arrival I was lucky to find a parking space in the small car park infront of the hotel. As it was fairly early I only had to pay a couple of pounds to cover me until the free period (6pm-8am). On check in Wendy was great, friendly & efficient.
Room/Bed: The double room was a good size with a desk & shair & comfy chair. The cleanliness was good. The bed was mega comfy & the pillows were just firm enough (there were also 2 spares) & the linen was soft & spotless.

Bathroom: Hand soap & shower gel in wall dispensers. Shower over bath (shower had good pressure)

TV: was meant to have freeview but I found very few channels & the 'guide' didn't have any info coming up??

Dinner & Breakfast: I went for the dinner inclusive rate & there was a good selection on the menu. Breakfast was well stocked & the cooked part arrived swiftly. All of the staff were friendly & helpful.

Gripes: The only one I have is that I was put next to the lift & which made a 'bing bing' noise when it arrived on my floor, this woke me up quite a bit
