My check in wasn't as smooth as it could have been as the automated machines didn't react to my booking. The staff were very helpful but even they couldn't find my booking. Fortunately, I had a printout to prove it and they kindly put me in the room next to my friends, which was going beyond the call of duty.
We didn't eat, but had a drink at the bar and then an early night.
The lifts are faintly annoying as they are slow and always seem to be going in the wrong direction but the hotel is constantly filling and emptying so they are working flat out.
Considering the footfall in this hotel, it was a very quiet night. As with all Premier Inns, the rooms were clean with everything you need and a great hot shower.
We had valet parking within a short walk and of course the airport is so near that you can almost touch it - very quiet though.
No negatives apart from the dodgy check in. The staff are really pleasant but let down by inefficient technology.
