We stayed at the Premier Inn for one night purely to try out the Hypnos mattress. We have stayed at a different hotel (not Premier Inn) previously with the same make of mattresses and it was the best night's sleep we've had so were pleased when Premier Inn started to advertise that they had the same mattresses. As we have been looking for a new mattress at home for a while, we thought we'd have a night out to give us the opportunity to try them out again (instead of a quick lie-down in a shop) with the notion that if we slept well, we'd look at buying one. Unfortunately, I woke up several times in the night not being able to get comfortable and then in the morning with aching joints. Not the good night's sleep I was hoping for.
The 'black-out' curtains have a gap all around the edge so the sunlight still came through at day break.
Neither of those are big problems for other travellers though. The room itself was a nice size, very clean and had everything we needed for a one night stay. The bathroom was spotless ( huge plus points for me for that!!). We only had 1 set of towels in the room but we asked at the reception desk on our way out and the staff member said she would sort it for us - she then asked if she had our permission to enter our room to put the towels in with us being out - I've never had that anywhere before.
Check-in was very easy on the self-service machines and the staff member was there to talk us through everything else. Security is good in that you can't access the hotel after 11 without your room key and you can't go up in the lift at anytime without using your keycard (unless someone comes out of the lift first).
Our room had a nice view overlooking the Minster and the canal. There was some traffic noise but nothing too bad.
There is no car parking at the hotel. We parked in the market car park next door. It's free after 6pm but then chargable from 8am so you need to get up and put a ticket on in the morning (2 hour max). The hotel is a short walk from the Frenchgate shopping centre which has facilities to park overnight in the rail car park.
