We stayed at this hotel just for a night whilst we were in the area visiting family. We had never stopped at a Premier Inn before but after having bad experiences with similar chains (travel lodge/holiday inn etc) we were not looking forward to it! However, we were very pleasantly surprised - the hotel is situated just off a large roundabout but we found it very peaceful with no traffic noise (or any other noise) at all.
From the outside, the building looked fairly new and modern and the welcome at reception was excellent - friendly and efficient. We were given a non-smoking family room on the ground floor - exactly as we had asked for. The room was excellent - spotlessly clean (which we have never found in similar chain hotels) and seemingly newly decorated. The child's bed had been made up already (we've had to do this ourselves in the past) and there were extra pillows already provided. There were plenty of tea/coffee/sugar sachets - we didn't have to ask for anything else which was definitely a first.
The bathroom was a very welcome relief - sparkling clean and we could even get a shower without being scared that the shower curtain would touch our legs!! (the last budget hotel we stopped in we had 2 room changes due to disgustingly dirty and stained shower curtains!)
Breakfast was served in the pub/restaurant adjacent to the hotel which was a really lovely space and suited all of us - mainly buffet style with the cooked breakfast being ordered and served after we'd had our fill of the cereal/fruit and pastries!! Very good value too as kids eat free.
All in all we had a lovely nights sleep here and will definately be using this hotel again - budget chains take note - this is how it's supposed to be done!!
