Stayed here between Christmas and New Year. Staff were very polite + friendly. Beds were comfortable. Restaurant next door very good. Great location for Blackburn Rovers football ground. Great location if you are visiting Blackpool, Preston, Bolton or the surrounding area.

Have just left after a two night stay, and ended up spending most of Tuesday working in the room, as had just a single meeting to attend that day. Whilst £3 per day was never unreasonable for WiFi, it is nice to have it free ~ but either way, when it is out for about 12 hours, and you are... More

The team who work at Premier Inn Blackburn South both in the hotel and restaurant area were polite, courteous and professional. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the area.

This is our first visit here, and found it really easy to get to from the motorway. Many of the reviews we’d read on Tripadvisor before booking were spot on. The hotel was fine: friendly, helpful staff; clean, cosy rooms and everything else we had come to expect from the high standards of Premier Inns. The evening meal was slightly... More

I travel around a lot with my job and tend to go for Premier Inn as you always know what you are getting. I spent 4 nights here in Jan 2015 and am still suffering for it. I can't fault the staff, they were great, and the room was to it's normal standard. Unfortunately the bed was truly awful. By... More

An excellent stay at a very friendly and well run establishment,with very good food facilities .The parking wasn't a problem and access to the town centre and surrounding areas was very easy as taxis were in abundance and the drivers very helpful.

At Premier Inn, you know what to expect. The staff here are always very welcoming. The rooms have been recently decorated and the beds are very comfortable. The rooms are always impeccably clean and you can be sure to sleep well. This is certainly not a luxury hotel; so you get what you pay for. Improvements would be plug sockets... More

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.
