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

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

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...
