“A day at the races”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

we have stayed at many premier inns but the staff here have to be the friendliest we have met . The hotel was clean with 1st class food & we would recommend you consider the meal deal which includes your breakfast the following morning . The only negative is if you are allocated room 318 as this is directly opposite the lift & can be quite noisey .

Just returned from a weekend staying here and could not fault the staff for friendliness and helpfulness. Nothing was too much bother for them. The room was clean and spacious the shower was a proper one and no climbing into baths to get to it. The food in the restaurant was lovely and they had an excellent deal on for 3 course dinner and breakfast. There is a Frankie and Bennys a 2 minute walk away. Highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay in this location

Lovely clean premier inn,although I find that they all are.Nice sized room with everything you would need in it and a restaurant and bar downstairs beside reception. Had evening meal,which was lovely,the only one thing negative I would say is that we waited quite a while for the meal. Couldn't say anything about breakfast as we were still full up from the night before so didnt have. Very nice staff,friendly and helpful.

Stayed in this hotel to save travelling between laser eye surgery and check up the next day. It was easy to find. The staff were wonderfully friendly and helpfull, the room was clean and comfortable and despite being very close to the road it was surprisingly quiet. The onsite restaurant was a godsend, food was delicious and staff brilliant. Premier in might be more expensive than travlelodge but it is soo worth it! I'll be staying again!

First time staying in a premier inn and was very impressed. Hotel and room were clean and the staff were very helpful and kind. The restaurant was good too and wasn't that expensive either. No faults with this hotel and we enjoyed our stay.

Excellent service, all staff were friendly and made our stay a great experience. We stayed here to go to the races and will definatley stay again. We phoned to check if we could check in early as the races started quite early, thanks to Donna who I spoke to on the phone, this was no problem. This meant we could enjoy our day fully. The room, as was the hotel was spotless. I have stayed in a lot of premier inn's and this was by far the best. Thank you.

Having previously used Travel Lodge for weekends away to watch rugby and visit family in Ayr I can definitely say after using the Premier Inn for the first time I will never use Travel Lodge again! Rooms were very clean, staff were extremely friendly and welcoming and the overall calue for money was excellent! Well done Premier Inn, for a budget hotel you offer luxury!

Room Tip: book on line early for the best deals
