This is a new hotel with 3 floors.(2 lifts) We stayed 2 nights having booked it on line about 6 weeks earlier @ £29 a night.
On arrival, received a warm greeting from the receptionist. There is a small modern lounge and reception area with comfortable seating near to reception for guests to use.
Our room was very similar to previous Premier Inns we have stayed at, but everything is still new and in excellent condition. The room had air conditioning. Had a reasonable nights sleep after but the bed was far too hard so spoke to 'Housekeeping' who provided an additional Quilt to lie on the second night. There are spare pillows if required.
The only issue I would raise is that with our room being at the rear we were aware of the constant noise from what appeared to be three extractor fans/ chimneys below our room which were running constantly and made a droning noise until about midnight. This made it difficult to get to sleep?
The hotel is attached on the first floor to a Beefeater Pub/Restaurant on one side and the other end of the building is a Costa Coffee that opens at 6:30am. Opposite is a large Sainsburys store which has a cafe that opens at 7:30am and next to it is a Greggs Bakery. You are spoilt for for food outlets which are all within 50 yards.
Free Wi-fi for 30 minutes a day is available, although 3G was intermittent.
There is a car park which costs £3:00 per day, but you needs collect a voucher from reception.
I will certainly have no hesitation about returning here in the future.
