Like many others, having two growing lads, we use the Premier Inn chain a fair bit. The Trentham Gradens version is the best we have stayed in yet. We were visisting Alton Towers for a few days and used the hotel as our base. Alton Towers is a 25 minute drive away. Rooms were nice and big, plenty space, clean and we had no trouble with the glass door to the bathroom. You cannot see through it. Nice big shower area that our 9 year old loved, three showers in one day is miraculous for him!
We had breakfast at £7.95 PP for a buffet, with kids going free, it was first class. We also ate dinner with a very reasonably priced kids menu and choice of ala cart or fixed price 2/3 course dinners. A pint of beer was aound £3, although I did note wine was pretty expensive for what it was. Not Jamie Oliver but good value food after a long day at Alton Towers. Parking was free and easy outside. Wee hint, park on the otherside of the Frankie & Benny's, therei s far more space.
Two wee complaints, there is no reason not to have free wi-fi in 2010 and the pillows are rather thin.
We enjoyed our stay there, staff were helpful and very friendly and would not hesitate to go back or recommend it friends. Well done guys, simple affordable accomodation with a smile. I hope your Premier Inn in Dubai matches it for our visit in July!!
