Paid £69 to stay on a Monday night at very short notice, on business.
First impressions were of a hotel built and stuck in the 1980's. Although communal areas and my bedroom were clean, the decor was dated and slightly shabby.
The reception staff were friendly but made errors with regard to my booking, although this was sorted quickly. I had dinner in the restaurant, which was actually quite good, although you pay captive audience prices. There's a pub over the road next to the Premier Inn, if you don't want in-house options.
Breakfast was included in the room rate, and it was pretty good, with a broad selection of cooked items, cereal, pastries and pancakes. There's a Starbucks concession in the otherwise tired looking foyer.
There's plenty of parking, and the location is handy for travellers using the M6 to make a quick getaway from Lancaster, although it's not in the town centre.
Overall, it was fine for the money but I was VERY disappointed to see that charges for wifi applied, at nearly £10 for 24 hours. I find this to be utterly unacceptable as so many other chains include some firm of access for free. The speed of the service wasn't even up to much. Poor show.
