I stayed here on the 16th July with my boyfriend on a trip to Alton Towers. The hotel itself was good as always with Premier Inn, clean modern rooms. HOWEVER the joint Beefeater restaurant is closed for maintenance from 16th July - 25th July, this means there is no where to have dinner or breakfast on your stay. This is very unclear on the website and many people checking in on the day didn't know until then. The receptionist couldn't do much to help but apologised and shrugged. I actually called the hotel the day before I got there saying I wasn't happy about the restaurant but they didn't do anything, they said the manager would get back to me but they never did.
Wifi is free for half an hour - I personally think it should be unlimited. Car park is free. We found a pub a drive around the corner for dinner and got a mcdonalds breakfast close by in the morning for food. The hotel did give us a complimentary breakfast that consisted of an orange juice and a breakfast bar...not really what we wanted.
As for Alton Towers, it's about half an hour away which worked well. I would stay again when the restaurant is re-opened.
