We decided to stop off in the Chester area on our journey home from our holiday in the south of Engand. It was a Sunday night and when we went into the hotel I was disappointed to see the room rate of £71 per night at weekends displayed. After discussion with my husband, we decided we would just go for it as he couldn't be bothered to drive around looking for a cheaper alternative. On checking room availability, the very pleasant receptionist announced that the room rate was £56, so that was a nice surprise! We were given the keys to room 7 on the ground floor, plus a spare set of towels. However, after that, it was downhill all the way. The room was very dingy, and both the bedroom and bathroom could have done with a good clean. The room had a headache-inducing melange of differnt colours - the walls were painted pale green, with a grubby pink carpet with horrid white stains at the side of the bed (yuck!!), the curtains were olive green striped and there was a navy blue sofa bed in front of the window which I didn't inspect too closely and the bed had a white duvet with a purple suede Premier Inn throw at the bottom. The room had a really weird fusty smell too. Fortunately, the bed was clean and comfortable, but as the hotel was located in a busy motorway service area, we had to keep the windows shut all night. However, there was a fan in the room. The shower worked fine but there was hair on the tiles in the shower area (eek!). The TV had 5 TV channels (plus teletext) and 2 radio channels. We didn't eat breakfast at the hotel as it was quite pricy and opted to dine at a local supermarket instead.
