this was the 5th and last time I will stay in a premier in. after several bad nights in York and Carlisle wasn't going to do it again but availability necessitated that we did. And another quiet night ruined by noisy neighbors, again mentioned this to reception but all she did was say "we will take a note of that"... More

Spent three nights and had a very pleasant stay. Really friendly and smiling staff, quiet place and good food. Due to a graduation at the uni, all hotels were fully booked, but I got the last room which was a room designet for disableds. Plenty of space and comfy bed. Nice touch that the full breakfast was ordered from the... More

Stayed in this hotel the night of my birthday. The room was lovely and spacious, very clean. We booked dinner at the Albert next door. Ive never had any problems with this restaurant but this particular night was dreadful! Wrong drink orders and when i spoke to the head waiter he sniffed my drink to see if i was lying!... More

the premier inn chain is a nice, budget motel but they should indicate on their website and advertising that the rooms do not have telephones. i consider this a safety and health issue. if one is traveling alone and has a medical problem, there is no way to contact the front desk other than crawling down a long hall and...

The most friendly and efficient welcome and help i've experienced in a long time. Nothing was too much trouble and the reception went out of their way to help with directions and assistance over and above our expectations.

Conveniently placed on the edge of town centre with ample free parking. Usual Premier Inn package: friendly welcome, clean comfortable rooms (especially the bed) with all the basics, good wifi which doesn't leave you slitting your wrists after you've tried to log on and an excellent breakfast in the pub next door. The pub is a Beefeater steakhouse with a... More

Stayed one night (to recover from three day cycling trip) before returning home. No problems with storing bike in the room. When checking in I was asked if I wanted to change to a ground floor room to make it easier getting bike to room. Really friendly service. Room had good facilities: en-suite, basic toiletries, spare pillows, air conditioning, tea... More

This was our first visit to a Premier Inn, we selected it mainly due to its excellent location to the main railway station which we needed to use each day of our stay and we were very pleasantly surprised. All the staff, without exception, were welcoming, friendly and helpful, the hotel and our room was spotlessly clean and comfortable. The... More
