I usually book my own rooms via booking.com and look for a good price for a night and often get very good value, but this was booked for me. When I saw the price of the booking I thought "Wow, Premier Inns must have smartened themselves up!"

On arrival, it was confirmed that the £105 booking didn't even include breakfast. The place is clean enough and I'm sure the incredibly high bed is comfortable enough for most. The current 'Good night's sleep guarantee' rather aggressively insists that you WILL have a good night. I just sleep well anyway, so I had to give in and pass out appropriately.

Meanwhile, the Ryanair-style cutbacks on bottled water, dispensed soap, overpriced vending machine sales and a not-omnipresent receptionist policy make you feel quite ripped off compared to what you can get for the same price.

Beware: The free wifi only gives you 30 mins free internet.

It's a solid, quiet room, but there's not a lot else there and at that price they can keep it. I'll drive on.

Great hotel, within walking distance (30 minutes) from town - plenty of good shopping!
Very friendly service and lovely Beefeater next door.
As always - you always know what you are getting with a Premier Inn, looking forward ot my next trip :-)

Second time we've stayed at this Premier Inn. It's well located with plenty of parking. Usual very comfortable beds and welcoming staff. Weather was hot so a fan was provided in the room as well as spare sheets in case the duvets were too warm. The hotel was very busy as some schools had broken up and people were heading to the West Country. As a result the Beefeater restaurant for breakfast was not as good as usual, with a 25 minute wait for a cooked meal and, to my husband's disappointment, had run out of croissants! However there was plenty of everything else on the buffet so no problem. Staff were very apologetic. It's a really good place to stay.

Stayed here to break up my journey. Superb hotel with fine quality finish. Only downside no air conditioning, the room must have been over 26 celcius - I was melting ! Lady at reception very friendly and smiley too.

IK have stayed in quite a few Premier Inn's but have to say this one is exceptional. Good friendly service from every member of staff we encountered. Room was spotless. Would definately stay here again.
