Our group arrived here for breakfast at the weekend after a long drive and we thought ideal as all the breakfast buffet was still laid out ready at 11.10, but were told we couldn't have any as they stopped serving it at 11 and wouldn't serve us or plate up what was left, although there was clearly more than enough...

Stayed on the race course caravan site in our motor home. Good site quite basic, but only a 10 min walk to the town where we caught bus to stafford. Lots of shops in Uttoxeter but 99% closed on sundays. unlike most towns these days.

I have given up with this restaurant in the evenings. After several bad experiences here, their food is always warm at best, the service is normally slow and the portion sizes are tiny. You are better off going down the road to the dapple grey or frankie and bennys for tea, however being connected to a premier inn the breakfast... More

Looked nice when presented but after taking top of pie off there was about half an inch of filling in dish with scraggy chicken & ham. Called waitress over to show her and asked... More

I stayed at the attached Premier Inn for a couple of weeks back in May. The restaurant can get busy with families attending the nearby Alton Towers theme park, particularly at weekends, bank and school holidays. Although a busy restaurant I found the staff to be very helpful and considerate to a solo visitor on business. In particular Clare who... More

It was after 1pm when entered the restaurant and the young woman on duty gave a could not care less attitude. It is very dim inside and we asked for a table nearer... More
