We stayed just one night on weekend to attend a wedding locally. It was the closest to the wedding reception venue and M1 and being experienced Premier Inn guests (even though it is not one of the newly built hotels) we booked a one night stay.
Booking and check in was seamless, the reception staff deserve a huge thanks from guests and managers. I asked to change rooms as we were initially on the side of the bypass which was noisy on a Saturday afternoon. The oscillating fan worried me a little, from previous negative reviews I thought it was people just moaning. It was not an overly hot day, about 23 degrees but the rooms and corridors were really warm. The windows are fixed to open for ventilation and there is an oscillating fan in each room. The hotel was very busy, judging by the car park and everyone at breakfast.
We did not sleep well, simply due to the lack of aircon and ventilation so did have to request a refund which was given graciously with an apology and explanation it is a long term issue. I really feel for the staff as they are so lovely. I would stay again but only in the winter months, if I was in the area and needed somewhere with close links to the M1 but otherwise would not need to return and sadly in the current situation the bedrooms are far too warm.
The hotel was spotless and exactly what it says on the tin. Large room, king size bed, bath and shower, can get breakfast in the hotel and there is free parking and they have wifi available in the rooms too.
