The staff at the premier inn in Deangate Locks were welcoming, warming, and could never do enough to help you. I was having a chat to one of the girls from reception in the lift as she was dragging an iron and ironing board to a room for a guest, i was talking about the heat in the hotel and she asked whether i was using my fan, i told her i didn't have one and she brought me one within half an hour.
Granted the fan was ineffective as you can't plug it in next to you in bed (no sockets) and the cord doesn't pass the desk. I stayed on the top floor overlooking the main road. It is very loud during the day but calms down at night, the windows are pretty effective at blocking out majority of the noise, but you can hear the trains as well.
The breakfast is amazing but because i was on my own, i was sat in the bar area instead on bar chairs, meaning i had to reach almost above my head to eat my food. I felt a little neglected compared to the families there.
The rooms are spacious as expected in a premier, and very clean. Decent sized TV but they do cap it at 25 on the volume which is just not good enough, (im half deaf) and with the noise of the traffic when you have the window open, you have no chance of hearing it (a shame as i stayed during the olympics)
I would say this is a good premier for them, EXCELLENT staff, but a few niggles could make a big difference if they look at them.
Free parking is a bonus, easy access to deangate and city centre, deansgate train station is only a 2 minute walk around the corner, WI-FI is typical, slow at peak times but usable. (£3 per 24 hours)
