“Don't stay here when it's hot”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

We stayed in the middle of a heatwave and the hotel staff were very attentive to providing iced water and fans but the lack of air-conditioning was critical and made for a very uncomfortable stay. That's not to criticize the other things about the hotel -it was clean, handy for the ring road,next to some nice food in the Barum Gate next door, fairly quiet location.
Probably a good bet for the rest of the year but beware hot weather, which is scarce in Devon, and particularly rooms facing south which are exposed to serious solar gain.

Room Tip: If it's hot get a room facing north

All good stuff with the room. I wish the menu was changed as it's getting a tad boring for someone who uses then 6 times a year. Still I am sure the staff will do there best and I will not fade away!!

Great hotel, very clean and comortable. The restaurant was brilliant with great food and very freindly staff. Try the burgers... brilliant.The kids were looked after and their meals were great. Loads of parking space and near a large tesco.

Expect normal Premier Inn standard rooms & food etc, but have put down to 3 stars because :-

No a/c in room, so was stuffy and small fan was not adequate and noisy so had to be switched off at night.
No hot buffet breakfast (a minor grumble) as I prefer selecting what I want rather than ordering.

Everything else was clean and tidy, receptionist was helpful and chatty and location on the edge of Barnstaple is good for exploring the local area and attractions.

Welcoming, helpful staff. Clean spotless room and bathroom . Does exactly what it claims i.e. provides a good night's sleep , comfortable bed and pillows. Had breakfast at the Table Table and there was a good choice of food. The staff again were friendly although somewhat busy due to the numbers staying at the Premier Inn. Overall can thoroughly recommend this Inn. We were on a sightseeing holiday so it was a great base for touring the area.
