Although me and my partner had a very enjoyable weekend we got totally scammed by the car parking!! Prior to our visit a receptionist phoned me to tell me there were no car parking facilities on site (which was fine) and we were to park in the NCP car park behind the hotel. Trusting this information we did so and paid over £13 for 24hrs. However, on our way to reception we noticed there was a pay and display car park behind Premier Inn Blossom Street North next door which was not exclusive to that hotel which was £8 for 24hrs. I felt really let down that the receptionist had clearly gone out of her way to ring me and give misleading information in order to possibly free up space in this car park. I even asked at check-in if that car park was only for Blossom Street North customers and she replied 'no, we use that one as well!. Very confusing!! So basically if you get a call telling you to park in NCP DON'T check the pay and display car park first which is right next door, and you'll save yourself a few pounds!!
The hotel location is excellent and if you hadn't already guessed there are two premier inns right next door to one another so it is worth comparing prices to see which comes out cheaper as this one worked out £40 cheaper for me!! Its right outside the city walls and train station so no need for a car because you can pretty much walk everywhere.
As usual the premier inn is very clean and in keeping with the same standard as other hotels in the chain, modern, comfy rooms etc etc.
The breakfast all you can eat is lushh and help yourself so i'd definitely recommend that. The hotel has a Table Table restaurant the bar is really good in terms of prices and has a large range of cocktails. However, the restaurant itself isn't up to much the food is pretty standard but a good choice, so i suppose it depends what you have.
Overall i wouldn't stay again because i feel they are quite dishonest however now you know my little car parking tip you should be okay!!
