“Excellent, especially Sandra, Lynne and Sarah!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2012

Booked for 13-16 February but ended up having to stay an extra night because my husband was ill & couldn't travel. We particularly want to thank Sandra the Receptionist, Lynne the Housekeeper and Sarah from the Housekeeping Staff, who were so naturally friendly and helpful and all three would so obviously have been like this without the customer service training that I assume all Premier Inn staff receive.

My husband became ill on Tuesday, the second morning we were there, and remained ill in bed until we left on Friday. Lynne and Sarah bent over backwards to help, regularly checking how my husband was and asking was there anything extra they could do to help etc. Sandra helped with providing info about chemists and NHS Walk In Centres. Because we had our young son with us we didn't want him missing out on his holiday so my parents and myself, and most importantly my husband, felt comfortable with us going into Blackpool knowing he could call on them at any time.

On our supposed last day it was obvious my husband couldn't travel so we asked if we could stay another night. Unfortunately they were fully booked but Sandra offered to ring around other Premier Inns near enough so that my husband only had to travel a short distance. She found one and booked it for us herself. Although it gave themselves extra work, Lynne and Sarah arranged that we could stay an extra hour after normal checking out time, so that my husband could transfer directly from one Inn to the other. The rest of us came back in time before we had to check out only to be greeted with Lynnne and Sandra's beaming faces because, due to cancellations while we had been out, we were able to stay there that night after all. They were so obviously as pleased as we were. We left the following day feeling that we had made friends and there were hugs all around when when left.

Having got the important bit over, the Inn itself was clean and comfortable. There were renovations going on and I knew about the these from the website beforehand so I rang up before booking only to be reassured that the disruption would be minimal which was in fact the case.

The Red Lion Inn food was normal pub fayre although a couple of dishes stood out such as the Wholewheat Pasta, the Meditaranean Rissotto and the Salmon. The breakfasts were good.

On a last note my son has Asperger's Syndrome and often seems pushy, loud and even rude sometimes but he always asks when he can go back to a Premier inn. Although he seems like other kids he hates, and can't cope with, change and uncertainty and the sameness and familiarity of the Premier Inns, especially the rooms themselves, and the friendliness of the staff make him feel safe.

Spent last night at the Premier Inn Bispham, was a bit worried when we arrived and realised it was in the middle of a refurbishment but disruption was very minimal. Greeted by friendly staff, Room very clean, bed comfy and had a very peaceful nights sleep. We also took up the Premier Inn meal deal which was a three course evening meal and drink then breakfast next morning and were very impressed The Red Lion Beefeater did a wonderful job and even filled up my husband. Very happy with our stay as we have always have been when staying at Premier Inns, would defo stay again.

Visited this Premier Inn whilst on a big family get together in Blackpool and in a town full of hotels, many with rather dodgy reviews, this was a reliable choice. Good sized room comfy bed and clean bathroom-even a hairdrier that was easy to use and had a bit of power! It is attached to a big pub/ restaurant too so handy for breakfast or dinner. OK so no great charm but sometimes that's not as important as somewhere you can rely on a good night's sleep at a good price.

Room Tip: About a 20 minute walk to the sea front and trams into town

Stayed in quite a few Preimer Inns and never had a bad one. This was no exception. Nice location in an expensive residential area (the map location on here is wrong!). Plenty of parking. Friendly staff. Spotlessly clean everywhere. Rooms immaculate. Breakfast in the adjoining pub (The Red Lion) was good. Even opened up early to accommodate the numerous rally fans early start. Very quiet, no noise. Very peaceful.

Stayed in much worse four star hotels and paid 4 times the price.

Bargain.

We chose to stay here after a disasterous stay at "NORBRECK CASTLE " 2 weeks earlier.
We were staying to attend my brothers funeral. I arrived with my frail elderly Mum and from the moment we explained our circumstances to the reception staff we were afforded every help and assistance. The staff's care and compassion was way above and beyond their normal duties. From giving us privacy when needed to maps for locating the crematorium to arranging an early check into my daughters room on the morning of the funeral...... Nothing was too much trouble! Word of warning.... The attached pub/restaurants food leaves a lot to be desired but thats what your likely to get with generic chain pub/restaurants.

Very noisy all night long. Doors constantly banging all the time. Wont stay at this Premier Inn ever again. Stay away from front facing rooms especially room 22. Also bathroom tiles were all black mould. Only 1 comfortable chair to sit in when the room is for 2 people.
