Having an early morning flight on a Monday, although not living far from the airport, we decided to stay the previous night.
The Premier Inn at the North Terminal was an ideal choice. Unfortunately, the directions upon arrival from the train station were not at all good. Signs only appeared to be for the Hilton and Sofitel hotels.
We'd already booked in online, so didn't have much to do at reception, which came across as very impersonal.
The room was clean, not cramped, with TV and plenty of choice for hot drinks. The bathroom clean and adequate. We were unable to open the windows, therefore, it was a very hot night with not much sleep. I have to add there was no aircraft noise to be heard.
We went down to breakfast at 6.00 a.m. which was run very efficiently. The waitress showed us to our table and explained the buffet breakfast. The breakfast was very good with a wide choice of hot and cold food.
Check out was quick and easy and we were in the North Terminal within minutes. An ideal solution to an early start in December when one could be worried about weather conditions. I'd certainly do it again!
