“Perfect budget break”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 September 2011

Arrived at Inshes Gate on a dreach Sunday night not expecting a lot from this budget chain. This Premier Inn is located in an industrial park nr Tesco on the outskirts of the city (Inshes) but is easily accesible from the A9. Found the check in staff to be professional, courteous and extremely helpful. We have 2 babies under 14 months and it was nice to have a receptionist that was polite and family orientated.
Our (family) room had been set up with travel cot and 2 cellular blankets. The bedding was crisp and clean. The cot had no marks on it and looked to be new plus the blankets were still white - not yellowed or used looking at all. There was a king sized bed, a single bed, camp bed and cot in the room.
We decided to eat at the attached Brewers Fayre as time was getting on and it was busy but easy to get a seat. The soft play area was also busy but not full to capacity which was great for our family.
As we were on a break with other family members we were seated at a long table and found the dining area to be clean and tidy. Whenever a table was vacated (or before) it was cleared and reset. The staff were not at all intruisive but attentive. Our party of 4 adults and 3 children ordered starters and mains which arrived quickly (well the starters did). Unfortunately we had to wait more than an hour for our mains even although the restaurant had emptied. When we raised the issue with the staff we were given a round of free drinks, an apology and the mains within 10 minutes. It's fair to say that the staff were genuinly apologetic and attentive.
Overall it was a very positive experience and I would recommend Inshes Gate to anyone travelling North.

Stayed here 1 night on business, as usual with Premier Inn service was great and a great nights sleep.
Cant comment on proximity to town center, but it was close to the airport (15 mins), and the bridge over the Moray as well as the major industrial estates.
Usual Brewer's Fayre next door.
All as to be expected at PI, no problems

Arriving quite late after a long drive - we have a truely wonderful night's sleep - its not all just for the TV advert! The beds were very comfortable and the pillows were better than I have at home! The bedding was lovely and clean. The overall room was very comfortable and clean. The check in was very smooth and the receptionist was very helpful. No traffic noise from the nearby road. The breakfast next morning was good and there was plenty of it!

For a basic, no frill hotel - this was certainly very good.

A Premier Inn is a "no frill hotel", and that is really OK. Clean, comfortable, with a serviceminded staff - and therefore - real value for money.
The only "problem" at this hotel was the room temperature - it was very warm, and even though it has not been a warm sommer, even the hotel was aware of having a challenge here. The windows couldn't really open more than a little (due to security), and the thermostate in the room didn't work. The hotels solution was to get a sheet from the reception instead of using the duvets.....
We dined at the pub, and it is was ok - with good service. The breakfast is really good and and a recommendable extra.

Clean, comfortable, staff super friendly and helpful, in the accomodtion part. The attached pub not so great, we had some questions about a few of the dishes which couldnt be answered when we got the meal a dish was missing for one person, one dish was cold and another was innedible. its was so bad we just laughed and laughed, then we went out to eat! Breakfast redeemed it slightly cos that was awesome. Staff were great!

It's clean and roomy in the family room. Breakfasts are large and generous, but you pay separately for them. Kids under 15 eat free. 3 nights a week is an all-you-can-eat buffet for 8 British pounds. You pay separately for WiFi. No laundry facilities or pool. Still, it's one of the best priced hotels in Inverness.
