Usual excellent Premier inn standard-very friendly staff-this is one of the newer hotels & also has air-con in the rooms. Located opposite a MacDonalds & next to a table to table pub which was very nice,we ate breakfast here every morning which was fab & one evening had the night time buffet -again very good. It is about a 20 min drive to Alton Towers although depending on traffic it takes up to 45 mins to get in due to queue's outside the park when its very busy. Its true the view is of a power station but we were up and out and back late so had the curtains closed LOL! Would definately return.
