Good value for money
Friendly welcome with attentive staff
Better than expected amenities, ie a proper hairdryer; fans in rooms, windows that open
The onsite Beefeater Inn worried me initially, being a vegetarian & recalling this as being a steak house, but to be fair we ate dinner here & there was a reasonable choice at competitive prices with good service.
Breakfast – we opted for the £5.20 continental option & it was more than adequate, with good choice & friendly service.
Very comfortable beds with pristine white linens.
Good standard of bathroom.
The Good Night Guarantee is something that was mentioned more than once – a nice touch.
We had two rooms and as a single woman in one of them, I was impressed that my higher floor request was already anticipated. When I read the literature in the room, I realised that this was due to Premier Inn working with the Susie Lamplugh Trust & being aware that single women often prefer a higher floor room.
Security was impressive with card keys being needed to enter the main floor of bedrooms & room numbers not being repeated or displayed loudly in reception (having just had the reverse experience that I detail in another independent hotel review, this was particularly noted as sadly not being standard amongst hotels these days!). Top marks for this Premier Inn…I felt that this would be standard at Premier Inns in general, which is great.
One small correction:
The hotel is in useful proximity to the town of Arundel, but as regular walkers & fit adults, even for us it was more like a 15 minute walk than the 10 described on the website – and it is good to know that this is along the very busy A27, albeit with a footpath all the way (although it is necessary to cross the road to continue on the footpath at one point). This isn’t a deal breaker, but slightly misleading on the website perhaps!
I would definitely stay here again & thank you Premier Inn for bothering to solicit feedback, both at the property & via email after the stay.
