My daughter, granddaughter and I stayed at this Premier Inn for one night on 16 February 2014. As is usual with this chain of hotels the room was clean, comfortable and roomy enough for the three of us. The girl in the reception was very friendly and welcoming and couldn't do enough to help us. I had already paid for the breakfast at the neighbouring Blackbrook Tavern and when we asked if they had a vegetarian option she advised us that if this was not available we could have the price of the breakfast refunded. We did go over to the tavern to enquire whether there was a vegetarian option and this amounted to vegetarian sausage, along with the usual eggs, hash browns, beans, mushrooms, tomatoes. We decided to give it a go, despite the poor reviews on here and wished that we hadn't bothered. We had a nice welcome from the lady who was welcoming customers, but she was the only staff on duty and was running around like a headless chicken most of the time. We asked about vegetarian sausages and she said that she would go and find out for us, this took about 10 minutes as more customers from the Premier Inn kept coming in before she could go and enquire. This was eventually sorted, however I got all my cooked breakfast only to find that there was no brown sauce, which is something I really love with a fry up. I asked about this, after waiting around for about 10-15 minutes none had arrived and I eventually got hold of someone who was checking supplies and she brought me a little pot of sauce. Well done that woman, only problem was my breakfast was now cold! My daughter said that her egg was not cooked properly, the coffee and tea was in flasks which were almost empty and therefore this was cold. I have to say that I doubt very much I would ever have breakfast here again - next time I'll go to the Morrisons down the road.
