Never stopped at any of these budget places before as never had the need. What a surprise. Staff were excellent but not too stuffy or over formal. Room was fantastic and puts to shame many a four star hotel in terms of cleanliness, it was immaculate you could have eaten off the floor. Premier Inn beds are too die for... More

Stayed in a lot of PIs, most of them are good. This one is no exception, good, clean rooms and is very quiet at night. Book early to get a better price. Parking is also good and there is also a Brewer's fair attached to the hotel.

So there's four hotels listed for Darwen which to choose? I would say it depends entirely on your budget and if you are looking at this hotel then I'd guess that you don't have the cheddar for The Whitehall or the (in my opinion) much better Astely Bank Hotel. So your choices are then to look at staying in nearby... More

I stayed with a school choir party. The staff could not have been more helpful, more friendly or enthusiastic if they tried. This hotel shows others how to do customer service! Bigger chains need to learn from them.

All standard perks of premier inn. Big cosy bed and fluffy pillows. Free view TV and wifi. Restaurant next door was fast and reasonable prices. Nice big car park and easy to locate hotel ( text satnav from their reminder text)

Staff very friendly; room functional. Lack of AC and inability to open window wide is a challenge. Breakfast excellent on 2 days but on the Saturday quality was less consistent probably because it was v busy.

there could have been a fan, the heating could have been more manageable, but overall another excellent stay in Blackburn M65 Premier Inn. Breakfast as usual was ample, all you can eat, no noise at all, next to motorway so extremely handy for commuters.

A Premier Inn is a Premier Inn, in that you know what you are getting, eg comfortable beds, a good bathroom and a Brewers Fayre next door. However, the staff make the Premier Inn Blackburn South extra special. They were all very friendly and helpful, but I would particularly mention Kelly on reception, who always went more than the extra... More
