“Excellent Location - Great Staff and Comfortable”
Reviewed 25 July 2013

We stayed at this hotel for our second time and can honestly say that the welcome from the receptionist on duty was the best we had ever had.

This is situated close to the city centre and beaches but just far enough away to be quiet.There are plenty of car parking areas with easy access to the hotel.

The rooms as always with Premier are standard but comfortable. The bathroom was dated and in need of refurbishment.

The Taybarn attached is a good choice if you fancy a large buffet meal but there are other options nearby that are worth looking into.

A pleasant stay at Premier Inn.

Date of stay; 22nd July 2013

When I pull up to a hotel... I start looking for the negative points. Setting my expectations low so I'm not disappointed when it comes to hitting the pillow.

Well I was very surprised. There was none. Well, if I was to be untra ultra picky, the carpark seems back to front, but that's it.

It looked clean (it was) it looked new (it is) it looked like everything you would want from a hotel when you pull up.

So now I'm in. Very fast check in. The guy in reception managed to make me feel like he was expecting me when I gave my name. A very nice touch which only usually happens at very top end of hotels...

Key card in hand and pointed in the direction of my room and everything just worked.

Clean. Comfy. And super.

See pics of room. Very very impressed.

Well done Premier Inn!

But the only "needs attention" i could say is better glazing because of the road noise... That's the only real down side. It's not a super busy road. Nor is it very loud but I would like it to be a bit quieter!

Will I be back? Yes. Absolutely. I will go out of my way to stay here when I'm close!!!

I stayed at this hotel for a trip to South Sheilds, while it is not in the middle of town it is conveniently placed near a Metro stop and is a short taxi home if you want a night out in South Sheilds. The rooms are basic but that is expected as this is a budget hotel. I stayed in room 1 which is on the ground floor and I think was once a disabled room. It was a well proportioned room but lacked a towel rail which I know sounds silly but they do allow towels to dry more efficiently. The reception staff could not do enough to help you. I arranged breakfast during my stay which was served in the attached Taybarns. I must say I am not normally into this type of restaurant but the quality and choice of food at breakfast was really good. Waiting staff were excellent be it maybe a bit too perky of a morning but that's not a bad thing.

Exellent value for money and a warm welcome.
Clean and tidy throughout.
Only downside is that you only get 30 Minutes free WiFi per stay.
Good value for money is the adjacent Taybarns restaurant with 'All you can Eat' deals but this is also popular with families with noisy young children.

Room Tip: Choose a room away from the main busy Road outside.

Excellent staff in all departments Fiona in reception deserves a special mention. She was so helpful and friendly. Food was varied and very good both for breakfast and dinner. Would recommend this hotel and would definitely stay here again.

Just returned from a two night stay at this Premier Inn & haven’t got a bad word to say about it. The hotel is modern, very clean & the staff are excellent. The rooms are “standard” Premier Inn and absolutely fine for a weekend or a longer stay. I’ve used the Premier Inn chain up and down the country for work and also weekends away with family and also for Rugby League trips and I like the fact you know what you are getting. This hotel is an excellent example of a Premier Inn and I highly recommend it.

Room Tip: I stayed in Room 8 which was at the side of the main A194. As a result the traffic past the window o...
