Having left penzance at 7.20 pm to travel back to London via a30 we encountered a deep mist just past Exeter and stupidly we hadn't considered that the a30, although anextremely busy road, does not have lighting! 2 ladies alone - we were rreally frightened as despite bad lighting mother vehicles were exceeding the speed limit. We saw a sign for Staunton and drove 11 miles down a country lane before arriving in the city/town. By then it was almost midnight. We were desperate and thanks to mobile phone we tried Travelodge who had no rooms available and when asked if they knew of alternatives we were told that they didn't know of any other hotels in the area!!! Needless to say we will never attempt to muse them again. Premier Inn was the next call and we could not have had betternserice from Anthony who directed us from where we were and promised to hold the room form us. We then encountered major diversions in Staunton and what should have been a 5 minute journey took almost an hour!! What a sanctuary we found!! Anthony welcomed us and was very concerned for our welfare. Our room was absolutely lovely with great facilities and the most amazing bed. We set off again at 7.20 and headed for London again - this time in pouring rain but with daylight on our side!! I will not hesitate to recommend Premier Inn to many one who will listen!!! Anthony was a young man who is a great ambassador for the brand and I sincerely hopenthatnhe is recognised for his "talent". Food looked fantastic too but we set off early so didn't stop for breakfast. Than km you so much Premier Inns - you have got it right!!!
