In all fairness, the room and hotel where as expected. Basic, clean, warm and quiet. Bathroom wasn't sparkling, finger prints in the hand basin, that sort of thing. My gripe comes with the dinning experience. The adjoining restaurant could only be described as a crèche from hell. It was heaving with kids, noisy, unrestrained, unsupervised hellions. Their parents seemed totally... More

Very friendly and helpful staff, Hotel very clean and comfortable. However, no hairdryer in room. On arriving home I realized I'd left something in the hotel, and after phoning the hotel a member of staff kindly posted the item to me.

I always stay here. Goodnight guarantee. Safe hands. Not this night. Constant noise through the night. Poss a mouse. No tea bags for the morning. No hair dryer. The guy on reception said. "You could have asked"! Surely it should just be there. Saying this, I will give them one more chance as the location is what I need. Please... More

Stayed here for four nights over three years ago and found it to be an excellent choice. Returning for just one night this time, the warm and friendly welcome and value for money was still there. I It's handy for the motorway too. I have no hesitation in recommending this Premier Inn.

Check in took all off two minutes and we were soon in our spacious room. The bar/restaurant is handily situated on the first floor. Breakfast in the morning was properly cooked and plentiful. There is lots of choice for those wanting a continental or lighter option. The hotel is about one minute from the motorway and has a large car... More

Always stay at this hotel, probably around 8 times a year and always had good experiences from the hotel. Staff are pleasant, rooms are nice and clean and no noise or youths making trouble in the car parks, unlike the travel lodge up the road. Recommend.

I have never used a Premier Inn before but will if all are this standard always use them if available. Reception was polite and helpful room clean with good facilities, towels tea and coffee making facilities. My only dislike is the liquid soap in a poor dispenser. Very comfortable bed and room nice and warm

You nearly always know what you are going to get with this chain. Some are of a better standard than others but Blackburn was excellent, including the resturant next door which I have also reviewed. Next time I stay in Blackburn this will be my choice. I had a good nights sleep.
