To be fair the room was ok, althought the bed and the furniture in a small room was a tight fit as was the shower, barely room to turn around.However the stairways and the dining area were dark and the carpet old and in need of a clean or rather replacing. This is not a modern Premier inn. If you... More

Needed somewhere to stay on the way back due to traffic being mad. Used the mobile app to contact bookings, got the room and was in. Unfortunately it wasn't a super £29 deal but was OK. Room as expected of a Premier Inn. Well kept and pretty clean. Stairwell was a bit smelly and dated though. Staff very helpful and... More

Booked this hotel as staying for the Grand Depart of the Tour de France. Having read the previous comments I was not looking forward to our stay. However, Staff were so friendly and immediately made us feel welcome. Yes rooms are not of the standard of the newer hotels we have stayed at previously, but as we only really used... More

Stayed one night 26/6/14. First and last time. Rooms very very small. Booked a twin for two adult men. Beds were about 6 inches apart. Rooms very tatty and tired. Shower very small. Anyone of portly build has no chance of getting in it. Very very disappointed. Either refurbish or shut it. Awful.

For a Budget hotel. It was great. Some people expect the ritz for budget money. The important things in life for an overnight stay is simple. Clean Room, Clean bed, Quite and a Powerful Shower. everything else is a plus.

I usually don't mind premier inn and would always choose it in preference to travelodge but this is one I won't be staying in again. General feel of the hotel is tired and tatty - it's definitely well overdue a revamp. But my biggest disappointment was being awoken at 6am by the prolonged noise from staff taking things out of...

First immpression for me was a shock to say the least. This place is not of the usual Premier Inn standards. It looks bleak and depressing , needs serious updating outside. I checked out the bar toilets whilst looking for a member of staff. Awful I've seen public toilets cleaner and in better condition. At this point I was ready... More

Booked this hotel as we had a wedding at Rogerthorpe Manor. Wish we hadn't! Stayed in plenty of Premier Inns in my time but this was by far the worst. Great location. Checked in with a lovely lad on Reception (Danny I think?). Got to the room, so disappointed. First thing I noticed was the old, stale smell. Old noisy... More

Booked a triple room via booking.com for the 17th May 2014, detailing that there would be 2 adults and one child. As we was at a wedding at Kings Croft Hotel we requested early check in, however this wasn't possible and as a key member of the wedding party, we was unable to leave until late. On arrival we found... More

Stayed overnight on our way back from Fife, very warm welcome though building looked a little tired from outside. The overnight stay was much better than expected, I had read other reviews which were not altogether complimentary, however, staff could not do enough to make our stay pleasant beds as usual ultra comfortable. relaxed friendly atmosphere.
