This is a larger Premier Inn but delivering the usual standards. Good reception staff, easy check-in, clean room, comfy bed etc. etc. The weak point was,for me, the bar/restaurant. We had booked ahead and we were expected. We decided to have a drink before we ate and were cheered by dozens of posters/leaflets offering 2 identical drinks for the price of one. No problems, we wanted two pints of beer but we were charged full price. When questioned a rather brusque lady told us, 'No. That's been withdrawn'. The challenge was pointless and, quite frankly, not worth the effort. Then they refused to charge the drinks to the room and it was all a bit of an uphill effort. The food was average but a bit pricey.
But the breakfast was good and the waiting staff excellent so, overall, it was an average sort of place but not so awful that we won't go back.
