we decided as a family to celebrate our sister, niece, cousins 60th by taking her back to her ,playground, the ashby rd area of Burton on Trent so to find the Stanhope Arms was also a Premier inn. So 4 rooms were booked , the beer darden a bonus at the beginning of the recent heatwave. on arrival we were kept waiting for a good thirty minutes to check in, as we,d travelled over 250 miles in the heat and needed the loo this wasnt recieved very well .The notice on the desk suggested that a guest had needed attention but when the receptionist showed she said, sorry I was in a meeting, what? at prime arrival time ,we werent the only ones waiting . that apart the room was its usual Premier standard the restuarant good. due to the heat the guests were offered sheets in stead of duvets and fans in all rooms. saturday we all went to the Bass brewery in the center of Burton about 8 minutes drive, well worth it at around £8 per adult with free drink at the end of the tour.
