There must be a case study to be written about the Premier Inn business. I've had consistently good experiences at several of their hotels and compared to other budget chains like Travelodge (which I've found to be dire) they seem to be able to deliver reliable, good value accommodation through interested and smiling staff.
We arrived late in the evening prior to an early morning flight and checked in at the front desk. There were none of the electronic kiosks that the newer hotels have. The staff were welcoming and the check in was efficient and we were soon in our room.
Although the room layout was standard for this chain it felt a tad smaller than some others we've stayed at. The heating and air-con was provided by an incongruous metal box fixed to the external wall but it did its job fine.
Bed was comfortable and the triple glazing along with the side located room meant we didn't hear any aircraft noise.
The hotel is 5 minutes’ drive from the airport and I was surprised that we weren't charged for parking unlike other hotels that close to an airport.
Left too early to sample breakfast and arrived too late for dinner so can't comment on the food.
