have always used Travelodge but found this Premier Inn on the internet, it was loads cheaper (admittedly we booked last minute). Room was comfortable, it had adjustable thermostat to set your own heating. the usual tea/coffee etc. The best feature however was THE STAFF! We were greeted with a warm smile and a 'Hello, how are you?!' we asked about food as we were pretty late getting there. The receptionist said the adjoining restaurant had a bit of a wait , maybe an hour as they were so busy. we asked for an alternative and she recommended The Pied Bull...a short drive away in Newton Le Willows. we took her advice and it was amazing food. rib eye steak to die for and a lovely building.
we did go to the adjoining restaurant/pub for a drink after. having seen some of the plates of food we were glad we didn't eat there. Didn't look great. also was annoying as we couldn't get a seat...so much space for diners only and even got moved on from standing as we were in the way. if you stay here eat at The Pied Bull you won't regret it.
