First time visit to this premier Inn for 2 nights. Overall the stay was OK for short visit but I wouldn't recommend to stay more than a night or two.
Arrival and check-in
Staff were friendly and welcoming. The car park is not quite big enough for the hotel but it does state this on the chains web site. Check-in was quite straight forward but could be a bit daunting if you don't like check in machines. Can't really see the point of 3 staff standing in reception and 3 machines. You might as well have a desk with 3 staff.
Had dinner in the restaurant the first night including a "Full house" burger. It tasted OK and was well presented but nothing above average in taste. Price wise I thought it was expensive for what I got. However food arrived quickly and service was good. Second night I visited the Harvester across the road which was really quite good and slightly better value.
The room on the first floor at the very end of the corridor was clean and tidy and better than many hotels I have stayed in. TV and all items were in good state of repair and everything worked and looked cared for.
My first nights sleep was not 100 % OK as I found the beds are not quite a standard size i.e slightly less than 6ft6inch in length. For tall persons this is really irritating as your feet can hang over the edge. For a hotel that claims that the beds are one of the best things its a huge disappointment. This somewhat ruined my first nights sleep. Width wise the beds are huge so I suppose you can sleep the other way or diagonally.
On the second night I was disturbed by another guest walking about his/her room. As far as I could tell as he or she went in and out of the bathroom area above the floor above gave out a very loud squeaky noise. Again there seems to have been little thought about sound proofing and good construction when putting the hotel up.
Breakfast looked nice and was explained by staff where things were which is better than many hotels. However the gentleman opposite my table pointed out that the orange juice had black bits in. The hotel staff investigated and removed my glass of juice and took the juice off the breakfast serving area. But the staff did bring me some new juice very quickly which I thought was good. Second morning breakfast was quite busy by the time I left at 8 AM which I think some could find a trial if staying for leisure rather than business.
In summary bar the few problems I rate it above travel lodge. However the bed issue given the Lenny Henry TV advert is a real disappointment for a person of my size. The noise issue would also put me off staying for any length of time.
