I seem to have done a little tour of Premier Inns the last few months, Hartlepool Marina being the latest. The standard of the room was better than the others in terms of decor, larger TV and little touches like the purple light around the headboard and I was really quite pleased when we unpacked. My OH is originally from Hartlepool so we know the area well and this is probably the best hotel to stay in with it's great location and lovely views over the marina.
I would've rated this as very good,if it wasn't for the fact that the first of our two nights was unbearable, possibly the worst night's sleep, although there wasn't much sleeping I've ever had in a hotel. The room temperature seems to default to 23.5 degrees and during the night, with 3 of us in the room that rose to a clammy 25.5 degrees. I opened the window, threw off the covers and eventually visited reception at 4am to get cold water....the vending machine was switched off, but the night staff did find me a couple of bottles. It was not a hot day, in fact it chucked it down during the early hours and we had 50mph winds. I think I got around 3 hours sleep. It was not helped by the person in the room above who thought an hour of aerobics at 6.50am on both mornings was the best way to start the day :( Soundproofing between the floors is poor although room to room was strangely really good.
The following day we left the windows opened all day and I switched the heater off at the mains to ensure the thermostat didn't switch on while we were out which helped considerably and we got to enjoy the room on the second night.
On checking out, I did inform the desk when asked how our stay was....the good night guarantee, money back, no questions, no quibbles, what a load of rubbish, I got nothing but a sorry to hear that, bye...
