“Nice enough for a quick one night stay”
Reviewed 27 December 2013

Stayed here for 1 night, our second premier inn within 4 days as we have family everywhere! Had a family room with cot, nice big room but the bed was rock hard and the tv was so huge and outdated, they really need to refurbish it to the flat screens found in many of the other hotels (including the premier inn York where we stayed this week).
The staff were nice but my other half and I both went outside separately to the car and both commented that the reception absolutely stank of cannabis. Don't know if it was a guest or a member of staff but it was awful!
Otherwise room was lovely and clean, just would have preferred a softer bed as this was like a concrete slab and I already have a bad back!

This was easy to find, close to Gloucester and within easy reach of the M5. Rooms are always very clean and comfortable. The pub/restaurant next door is a real bonus for this Premier Inn as the food was good. We only ate the breakfast but it was of a much higher quality than we have had elsewhere in the same chain.

Stayed here while on business in the area. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms, like other Premier Inns, need to be updated. The tv's are of an old analogue type and are missing half the free view channels. Flat screen led is the way forward. Paying for wiFi is also old hat as most hotels now have this as a free service.
Will stay again but could be better.

This was our first stay with Premier Inn and we were no disappointed. The chain has a no nonsense approach, but supplies almost every amenity necessary ( the only thing missing was a box of tissues - but I will know next time.
The parking here is ample, with an excellent Wheatstone inn for eating, literally next door.
The hotel is just off the M5 so is easy for access. (Junction 11a or 11 depending on which direction you are coming from.
The hotel is clean, well presented with excellent housekeeping. The complementary tea and coffee, as always run out quickly, but the reception staff are more than happy to supply extras,
The beds are huge and incredibly comfortable ( as advertised on TV).
The rooms are well appointed with quiet, clean with well maintained bathrooms. ( excellent shower). Towels are plentiful and pristine.
The staff here, just as in the Inn next door, cannot be praised enough Their attitude to work and their guests is excellent. We never experienced a miserable face or a lack of willingness to help. Indeed, they were always willing to chat, provide directions or, as stated earlier, let us replenish the tea/coffee etc.
We will definitely return here on our next visit to Gloucester, which is only a couple of miles away.
People have complained about traffic noise, but we never experienced any. Maybe if in the future, guests ask to be overlooking the car park this noise may diminish.

Room Tip: Maybe a room overlooking the car park might be quieter than one at the back, near a busy dual carria...
