Mediocre Food, poor service

Really disappointed in food and service - we opted for the breakfast option whilst staying at Premier Inn - found filthy bowls mixed in with the clean cereal bowls - staff not apologetic

Had a poor experience here in February, however when friends were staying over at the De Vere hotel they suggested we meet for an early dinner so I agreed - big mistake! We arrived at the Malta Inn at 4pm, decided to order food from the bar menu rather than sit in the restaurant. Ordered a risotto, a veggie burger... More

Not impressed with waiting an hour and a half for food. By the time the food got to us it was cold. The waiter didn't seem to care about us complaining. We also had to sit outside because of us having someone in a wheelchair. When we went in to get drinks there was plenty of tables downstairs for us.... More

On our way to France. Thought we'd patronise premier inn as we are whitbread shareholders. Quite appalled at the associated beefeater restaurant. Surrounded by customers complaining about slow service and poor quality. My own chicken bacon and avocado salad involved hunt the avocado and masses of coleslaw that was not mentioned as part of the salad. Very disappointing.

Appalling organisation, long wait to just book a table let alone the wait FOR it. So I go to the bar to have a drink while I wait. Two people in front of me but it take FIFTEEN MINUTES to get a drink. When I asked for nuts to quell my raging appetite they said "no nuts, no crisps".....NOTHING. A... More

Visited here 16th May. Queued for 15 minutes at the bar & the refillable drinks tasted watered down. The fish & chips tasteless, had find the waitress for the bill. Then I had to ask for my change, there was no way I was going to give a tip! The ladies toliet needed a cleaner in there & no toilet... More

We managed to get a table although late in evening.. Carefully ordered meals despite the expense.. gave me time to look around at the place. The ceiling in the upstairs dining area in bad need of an update and the light shades with huge 70 s look appeared to look nicotine stained. Just the colour but not a good choice....... More

We arrived to find that the delivery hadn't been received so the menu was vastly cut down to six dishes which was disappointing enough but a couple of us ordered the salmon burger, which they didn't have either! Ended up waiting about 45 minutes for 4 burgers, it wasnt even particularly busy. From our table we had the view of... More
