This was my first time at a Premier Inn and my expectations were low but had been advised by a colleague that the beds were excellent. My wife has a bad back, so this was important. The room was impeccably clean, the air con worked really well, the beds were excellent and the food next door also reassuringly good. Staff... More

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

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.
