Having stayed here one quiet Sunday night in Feb in the best room, we found it very pleasant. So much so, that we booked the same room to go back a month later, this time in the week. In spite of booking so much in advance and phoning up to confirm it on the day, we arrived to find our specifically booked room had been given to someone else. There was no apology - in fact we were expected to feel grateful that they could accommodate us at all in the only room available. When asked why we had been bumped there was just a feeble excuse that there had been a mix up as the management had recently changed - a complete untruth as the management had changed at the beginning of Feb before our booking was made. So instead of the nice room we had booked we found ourselves in one that would have been in the 'shabby-chic' style, except it was so tired it was of the 'tatty-chic' variety.
There is very little parking as the hotel group that owns it decided to flog half the car park off to developers to make a fast buck a couple of years back so this time we had to park in a public car park. The final straw was breakfast – no fresh fruit, one measly rasher of bacon (but I did get 2 eggs as I had specifically asked for 2). They were stomach churningly presented like islands floating in a sea of grease…. Come back Premium Inns, all is forgiven!
