“birthday visit”
Reviewed 17 April 2014

excellent stay, ideal for where i needed to be. The staff were very helpful in the hotel & one member of the restaurant staff adjoining the hotel, Emma, remembered me from a previous visit & asked about my daughter who wasnt with me this time. Above & beyond.

I only stayed one night on business, but I found this hotel well situated, easy to find, busy but not noisy, and very friendly. The restaurant was physically adjoined which is always nice. All the usual amenities, wi-fi, en-suite, nice bed etc. I found breakfast typical for a modern Premier Inn, not better not worse. All in all an enjoyable visit.

I've stayed in this hotel a number of times and it's very conveniently located just off the M65.
The hotel had an extension built a few years ago and those rooms are up to the current Premier Inn standard whereas the older rooms, while still good, look a little tired by comparison in the bathrooms and main room lighting. That said, the hotel reception staff are very friendly and everything runs to the typical Premier Inn high standards. There is plenty of parking close to the hotel too.
There is a Brewers Fayre adjacent to the hotel which you can access from the first floor which is handy if it's raining. There is a children's play area and a variety of themed meal nights, Indian / Chinese etc. It can get quite busy with local families who have children but if you can wait until around 7:30 / 8:00 p.m. it does quieten down. There's free wifi in the bar too.

Room Tip: I'd suggest asking for a room away from the stairs / elevator as it can get a little noisy with...

Friendly welcome. Comfortable and clean room. Quiet environment despite the hotel being busy. Breakfast on 2 of the 3 mornings was a disappointment however - had a long wait for cooked breakfast and when it did arrive the food was overcooked. That said - it was an enjoyable break and we'd stay there again.

Great location for Ewood Park. Rooms immaculate and very modern. Heating instructions could be more visible.
Brewers Fayre pub onsite. Great food and drink deals. Very busy and food service bit slow though. Would recommend this hotel.

The Staff are very helpful, friendly and caring. The Room was clean, comfortable and had everything you need. The bathroom was very clean with soap provided. This hotel was perfect for our requirements on this occasion.
