Great location for city centre and an easy drive into Sunderland to see Foo Fighters. First night happened to fall on the bank holiday. This resulted in 0 sleep as our room looked into the neighbouring Slug & Lettuce. When I complained I was told that it was a 'bank holiday' with a shrug. Used the good night guarantee so... More

Had meal at slug and lettuce 3 mains and 2 child's plus drinks £22.00. Wetherspoons nearby which also did breakfast. So you are not obliged to have a premier Inn breakfast u can choose. Goof Base...

Booked a four night stay and were made very welcome when we arrived, the staff were friendly efficient and very informative on what to visit and where the best restaurants were in the city centre. We also booked a meal in the restaurant and found the food very good and not at all expensive. We would not hesitate to stay... More

If staying at this hotel on a weekend/bank holiday make sure to ask for a room not facing the slug and lettuce. The noise was ridiculous and didn't quiten down enough for us to sleep until 1:30/2:00am. As the hotel was fully booked there wasn't a room for us to move to so instead just had to deal with noise.... More

The bed was great, the room was as you'd expect, the breakfast was flexible and reasonable, the location was accessible and the staff were polite and friendly. It delivers on its promise of a great night's sleep. Would book again.

Staff were helpful and hotel was clean but the bed was terrible. I'm 5'11 and feet were off the end. Premier Inn have set the standard high in my opinion with their beds as they are a good size and very comfortable, problem occurs when you are in a room or property that hasn't got those beds! For that reason,... More

Not the best Premier Inn we've stayed at. The room we were given was next to the lift, it was only 10 mins before I couldn't stand the sound of "floor 1, floor 2..." - I knew we'd be asking for our money back under the "goodnight guarantee" so we asked if we could move rooms. The receptionist was very... More

Stayed one night as we were meeting relatives for a meal in the Raddison Hotel across the river. We originally planned to stay there but rates, even for a Monday night in May, were on the expensive side. So booked the Premier Inn for £42 for the room, extra £20 for breakfast. Very well equipped disabled room, plenty of room... More
