My companion and I stayed for 3 nights (14-16/2) at this Premier Inn, which is the second week after it was opened. With only 57 rooms, this hotel is a lot smaller than other Premier Inns that we have come across.
Minus a couple of 'teething' problems (e.g. providing only one set of towel in the room on the first day, no tea spoons or cups on the second day, no light bulb at one of the bedside tables), we thought our room was very nice, comfy and clean. We liked the shower which is temperature controlled (NB: no bath), big Samsung flat screen TV (wall mounted), and the (new) soothing decor. My companion was most pleased with the covered parking area for his toy.
Unlike other reviewers, we dont mind that the windows in our room can't be opened, as this is what we have found in many Premier Inns. We didn't find any problem with the air quality in our room or with the air con.
We totally enjoyed the English breakfast. If you are dining at the Premier Inn, you must try the 8oz rump steak which we thought was perfect. However, the menu is very restricted (see attached) in this hotel. There is no bar facility; so if you're after pint drinks, you'll have to go elsewhere. My companion asked for a Heineken and it came in a 330ml bottle. A large Pepsi came in the size of a 200ml bottle. For this reason, I only rated it 'average' for Value.
The staff at this hotel were very friendly and efficient in dealing with our requests. Thanks to Laura for making us feel very at home for the duration of our stay, and to Kelly who offered us (without asking!) a big brolley and good directions to walk to town (easy 15 minutes).
