This is the 2nd time we have stayed at this hotel this year. The rooms are fairly big but basic as what you would expect from a premier inn. The bathroom was a little gruby whereby the grouting could do with a bit of a deep clean and there were a few marks and scuffs on the wall, but thats being overly critical.
The bed and pillows in the room are soooooo comfortable. Howeer, try not to get a room on the main road (blossom street) as the traffic is fairly loud thoughout the night,
The food in the restuarant (the long boat) is lovely and reasonably priced. The food is of a nice quality and the service was relatively quick. We had the breakfast on the previous visit and it is value for money if you like a big hearty breakfast. Its a buffet style all you can eat, it ws a bit wasted on me but my hubby loved it!
Now for the lift! one word of advice, if you are claustrophobic - dont use it. It was out of action the first time we were there but it was fixed relatively quickly. One our 2nd stay, if broke down while we were in it between floors!. the alarm button is rubbish and links to a call centre in god knows where, and it took about 6 times to be answered! i was then asked by the operator where i was, what city and the postcode of the hotel! I was told an engineer was on his way, but no timeframe give. My husband managed to force the door open and luckily we were only about 12 inches from the 1st floor so we stepped out. We had to inform the receptionist as they had no idea the lift had broken down again, but she advised it does that regularly!
The hotel is a 5 min walk from the train station but is approx a 15 min walk into town.
