Guess UK readers will be familiar with Premier Travel Inn, but if you're not they aim to offer clean, comfortable, simple rooms at low prices.... very much a no-frills experience.
Location: Easy to find by the main A180 as you come into Grimsby, but location is basically in a industrial park, so it's a long way from romantic, and doesn't seem to be that close to the town centre either. Plenty of free car parking.
Check in: Efficient, no problems. You pay on arrival (which makes check out simple)
Room: Clean, quiet, comfortable and easily spacious enough for 2. The energy-saving bulbs means the light in the room isn't great. The bathroom was clean with a good shower, bed was comfortable. You also get tea/coffee & colour TV.
Eating/Drinking: There is a pub next door where food (including breakfast) can be bought. Didn't try it so can't comment, but these places tend to be rather bland & "corporate" looking
Overall: If you are on your way somewhere, or want a comfortable room for £50, then you can't go wrong. Just don't expect the luxuries of a more expensive hotel. Have paid a lot more for worse nights sleep.
