I booked a family room for an overnight stay for myself and my two daughters on Thursday 30 July 2015. We parked, easily, in the car park in front of the hotel. When we booked in at Reception the receptionist was polite, friendly and helpful. She asked us if we would like to reserve a table for an evening meal... More

We dined out of hotel but enjoyed a hearty breakfast the following morning. No complaints. Room was comfortable with everything we needed. Would recommend and... More

I spent three nights here and had breakfast every morning. The hotel is comfortable and centrally located with adequate car parking. The breakfast was good and the hotel pleasant. The staff were friendly and seemed happy; it was a good place to stay and the view over the river is lovely.

Staff very helpful and pleasant.plenty of places to... More

Good location. Very nice and comfortable bed. The only thing I can complain about is the breakfast (buffet one). It was too salty and not particularly enjoyable. There were also a couple of spots needed to be cleaned up thoroughly in plates when picked up. I hope the Premier Inn could sort this out so its service would have been... More

I was staying alone but the room was huge and I had a kingsize bed to myself. The bathroom was big and everywhere was clean. The location was great and close to train station and city centre. The staff were excellent but the price was a bit steep even on the 'no refund' saver rate.

The main concern was the Bed comfort, hard and poor by their normal soft standards resulting in a couple of poor nights sleep.Even... More
