We were visiting the Polar Express Attraction and although this hotel was further away than others the price was much better and we knew exactly what to expect from Premier Inn.
We were greeted by a very friendly receptionist who made sure we knew everything we needed to know and took time to speak to my son. The room was as expected, clean, modern and fairly spacious. Each time we left/entered the hotel, the same lady would greet us or check everything was ok. I didn't get her name but she was a real credit to the hotel!
The location of the hotel is good. It has a retail park just behind it which was great for a bit of Christmas shopping!
The restaurant was the only let down but I will write a separate review for that on their Trip Advisor page as not to affect the review for this great hotel!
