A well placed hotel. Very clean and modern. Excellent breakfast with plenty of choice. Really helpful reception staff. Only con was the pillows, which were far too firm for us. A choice of a soft pillow would have been good. Next time we will take our own from home.

This is the best Premier Inn I've visited, without question. From its position, beside a garden centre set back from the main road (& very quiet) to the fantastic staff I could not find fault. The choice at breakfast was astonishing - and very filling! No hot buffet - better, each one freshly cooked to order! I had booked two... More

We visited overnight in order to visit family, stayed in room 214. When we checked in everybody was lovely and the room was perfect, but right at the top of the staircase. Sadly when we went out for a family dinner, we were involved in a car accident and could not lock our car. Premier Inn promised to keep an... More

This one is known as Fowlers Farm and is totally different in design and layout to the "normal" Premier Inns. (I seem to remember it being owned by a different hotel chain in the past). This one is quieter than the other one on the dual carriageway and is next to a garden centre. Fowlers Farm hotel is very clean... More
