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!
