I stayed at the Premier Inn whilst I was visiting friends in Derry. I only booked this hotel because I could not find any other hotels in/near the city for the dates I was looking for and it was a little bit pricier than I was expecting given its location.
The hotel is located on the Belfast-side of Derry so there is no need to negotiate across the city to get there - however there aren't obvious signs for the hotel until you are almost in the car park. Luckily I was already travelling with a friend from Derry so they directed me straight there, otherwise I may have struggled.
There is a vast available car park for visitors and a Cost Cutter store just across the road (which is super handy).
I was greeted by a very friendly girl on reception who checked me in very quickly. The room was much bigger and airier than I expected, with a large double bed and big chaise longue. The bathroom was large and immaculately clean. There was also a lovely touch with the pillows - you have the option from two harder and two softer pillows to ensure that you can get comfortable. The room had all the mod cons you would expect - hairdrier, kettle and tv.
In reception there is a couple of large vending machines with snacks, drinks, travel adaptors and washbag essentials you may have forgotten. The staff on reception were all super friendly and always ready for a chat! They also came to my rescue with change for the vending machines for a sneaky midnight snack!!
The only criticism I have is that there are large mirrors in the room but no decent lighting near them which is a bit disappointing but that's about the height of my criticism!!
