“Good for Stadium but long walk!”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

We stayed here in May 2014 as we were going to see One Direction at the SoL. The staff were fantastic, some of the most friendly people we have ever met and couldn't do enough to help us, and the room was spotless.
The only downsides were the pub next door where we waited over an hour for lunch which was mediocre at best when it finally arrived, and also the location was just a little too far to walk back from the stadium. We had been advised to start walking once leaving the concert with a view to getting a taxi further along the route or otherwise there was a regular bus that ran right past the hotel from near the venue, but with some fifty thousand concert go-ers, everything was a bit chaotic and we walked nearly three miles to the other Premier Inn and managed to catch a taxi from there. What with the concert traffic and the fact that it is a busy dual carriage way for most of the route, it wasn't a very enjoyable three mile walk and I wouldn't recommend it with kids, especially at eleven at night!
The pub next door did redeem itself at breakfast and I would confidently say it was the best Premier Inn breakfast we've had!

Usual Premier Inn room, so no complaints, except the dribble of water from the tap in the sink, due to water flow restrictor. If I wanted to fill the kettle, I would have a long wait!
Helpful staff. Out of town location, a bit of a drive to get into town, but the price reflected that,(£67 plus 8.75 for breakfast.

well maintained and excellent place to stay. Staff are brilliant they go about their duties like a well oiled machine. They tend to your every need should you need it. This stay was our first with the premier inn and I was very impressed.

All members of staff were warm and friendly, took time out to be human and not robotic. Room was very comfortable, bed linen was fresh and clean, bathroom was spotless. Breakfast was good, will definitely stay again.

I must start by saying something positive. The staff were very helpful and friendly; the room was very clean and we only stayed for one night!
But I'm sorry that's as far as it goes - very small room and bathroom, which might have been OK had it not have been for the heat 27* - even during the night. There was in fan in the room and the curtains remained closed I even took my own fan knowing there is no air con but 2 fans in a small room did very little to help :-(
And then there was the hard bed and the constant noise of the traffic . . . . . needless to say we did not get much sleep. My partner who is VERY easy going described the stay as 'GRIM' we are getting a refund but we would rather have a had some sleep . . . .

Thank you for your feedback. I'm very sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay with us. We try our best to keep the rooms as cool as possible by closing curtains and providing fans for the room. We do have double glazing throughout the building, and the road side dose tend to get noisy. please feel free to call us in advance for any future stays and we will try our best to allocate you a room away from the road.

Best regards
