I stayed here last weekend with my husband. We had a free night, due to having booked with Premier Inn several times before.
We checked in at 2pm, and the receptionist Emma was brilliant - whatever they're paying that girl just isn't enough! Our room was upstairs at the front of the building. We went through several doors with notices stating "ssshhh - quiet zone" IF ONLY!!! There were a lot of families staying there with children, who allowed them to run up and down the corridors at all times of the day and night! The room was clean, but looking a bit 'tired'. There was a hair in the sink, and the part of the bath that you stand on to have a shower looked like it could do with a good scrub.
No air conditioning, but a noisy fan instead.
We made the mistake of booking a table at the Brewer's Fayre "restaurant" attached to the hotel. We arrived at 8pm and it was bedlam! Very noisy, children screaming and running about everywhere, and no bar area to sit away from the restaurant part. I would suggest going to one of the lovely country pubs/ restaurants further down the road on the way to Bath instead.
We had breakfast the next morning which was a buffet. Lots of choice, and as we went a bit later, the noisy people had all been and gone by then.
The car park really isn't big enough to service the hotel, and we had to park away from the hotel near to the building work.
Not sure we'd return to this hotel - there are better Premier Inns available.
