This was my first time at a Premier Inn and my expectations were low but had been advised by a colleague that the beds were excellent. My wife has a bad back, so this was important.
The room was impeccably clean, the air con worked really well, the beds were excellent and the food next door also reassuringly good.
Staff were friendly.
The only downside to be aware of is that if you decide to have more than the free allotted 30 minutes of WiFi and pay the £3 charge online for 24 hour WiFi access, then this is not transferable to other devices. I queried this and after some discussion, was issued with a free voucher. Be aware though that this is easier for them to do if you book the paid WiFi at the central desk.
Other than this, it was a very good stay en route to our holiday destination
