I have stayed in a few Premier Inns across the country and this was probably the worst. I usually like them because they're relatively new, clean and reasonably priced. Newcastle is an expensive city, so I wanted something that wasn't £200 for 2 nights. I paid £125 for 2 nights 19/11/13-21/11/13. The location was excellent for the courts (where I needed to be), but it's in dire need of refurbishment. The reception is shabby, the restaurant is overpriced for what it is, and I was stuck in a dingy 3 bed (just for me!) room (404), on the fourth floor. The room was dark because the windows were practically non existent, it wasn't spotless (dusty, hairs in the bath etc), it wasn't very soundproof and it was ABSOLUTELY FREEZING. The room was quite large, given there was a double and a single bed, and it only had 1 little heater that was as much use as a slack tooth. In general, it just looked shabby. However, I did actually slept quite well given the situation. Shower was also ample, although I have to say I absolutely hate shower curtains!!! The facilities - i.e. the TV, wardrobe space, hairdryer, kettle etc were ample. I also received a letter from them today requesting an additional £125 because I 'failed to check in.' After a prompt phone call it was resolved...but it still shouldn't have happened and I shouldn't have to pay 10p per minute for something that was quite clearly an administrative error at their end. Would I stay here again? Only if it was all I could afford, and I had to be in that area again.
