First - due to this being a private road the postcode will lead you a merry dance in the wrong direction - the Premier Inn is off the A42 roundabout just outside Ashby. I hope that saves at least one person from wasting 15 minutes trying to find the place as we did.
Very good value for money - good, well-equipped and comfortable room and bed (and a choice of pillows :-)), plenty of towels. And a bath in the bathroom, always a bonus. We requested a quiet room and were in the 'quiet zone' - our room overlooked a field of horses which was rather nice, and it was certainly quiet.
The breakfast was very good indeed. As always at Premier Inns the staff were great, very helpful and friendly.
We used this as a base for a short weekend to visit the National Space Centre in Leicester and Twycross Zoo.
