Before the kids went back to school we took a short trip to Belfast and stayed overnight in the Premier Inn. The first thing we were happy about was the price - 2 family rooms for a total of £98. The rooms were clean and spacious. They were also extremely quiet and comfortable. Everyone slept well.
Because we had been out in W5 and didn't get back as early as hoped, my wife opted to eat in the room and put our 10 month old down for the night, and I brought our other 3 kids to the restaurant. I ordered a standard veggie burger with chips for myself (with a glass of house white), a mushroom risotto for my wife, which I said I would bring up to her, and 3 kids meals. The kids meals consisted of pizza marguerita with chips, a dessert and a soft drink. There were choices but they all went for the same option. The risotto arrived in a bowl wrapped in tinfoil and it was piping hot when it reached the room. The meals were all fine - it's not gourmet cuisine, but at a total cost of £40 was excellent value.
Breakfast was the best value. Both myself and my wife opted for the full breakfast, and the kids ate free. For a total of £17 we were all fed royally!
The staff in all areas of the hotel were extremely friendly and helpful.
Overall a great experience and I can honestly say that this "budget" hotel could teach some of the more expensive and exclusive hotels a thing or two. Top marks!
