We have stopped in quite a few Premier Inns and you do wonder what to expect as we have had some great and not so good experiences, this one was a pleasant surprise.
The lovely guy on reception was so welcoming and helpful when we arrived, nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were usual Premier, clean and spacious - my son even commented that the camp-bed they had provided was 'really, really nice'! You don't often hear that about a camp bed!?!
The breakfast was also good, served in the adjacent brewers fair the staff again were great. It was a freshly ordered breakfast which was nice - poached eggs cooked perfectly. They were also great with the children. We only stopped one night so didn't try the evening food.
Would recommend this premier and will be using them again when my daughter has her next gymnastics comp in the region. Thank You
