Stayed here with Wife as a stop over while en route to the Lake district. Stayed at Premier Inns before and always find that you get for what you pay for. Sometimes this expression is used in a derogatory sense but not here. For £39 we had a clean and well laid out room, a comfortable bed and a bathroom which served it's purpose very well. The two receptionists we encountered, one at check in and one when we left were very professional, looked genuinely happy to see you and, even though we didn't have anything we needed in addition to the room, felt that they would have happily dealt with any requests with a smile.
Nipped across to the Harvester for a drink after we dropped our bags off and served a decent pint of Guinness. They serve food up until 10pm and you can book a table with reception. Breakfast looked tempting at around £8 for an all you can eat buffet style but left early so didn't try it.
Would definitely stay here again as only 2 minutes off the M42 so broke up our journey perfectly.
