I was welcomed by a most pleasant young lady on reception (Tuesday evening, 13th October) who patiently explained and showed me that (user error) the heating system was from an old fashioned idea. When she clicked the switch, the heater turned on!! A clean and pleasant room and as I left for dinner, I was sent off into the rain with a really nice, 'have a nice evening'. I was welcomed back in the same manner and really felt relaxed. I nipped for breakfast next morning where I met two lovely people, Gina and Tracey; what characters they were. They oozed welcome and friendliness, nothing was too much trouble and Gina really went to town with the customer service and guidance around breakfast. This was cooked by the very able Tracey, both of whom came over for a most pleasant chat. This hotel simply oozed customer service but from the most sincere direction, Gina and Tracey are natural and that inspires relaxation. After a hearty breakfast, washed down by unlimited tea I was really relaxed and quite sorry to have to leave. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel and most importantly, the most precious asset, the team that run it. I was so full of praise that the gentleman I went to see immediately told his operations chap to review this hotel for future visits. I wouldn't give my recommendation easily, this almost family environment gave me no choice, I was delighted (normally I am the miserable chap who picks up little fingies). Thanks team, a most enjoyable stay from a very highly motivated team determined to deliver the very best.

I booked to stay here 21.09.20 for a 1 night stay, check in was easy and reception was friendly. Room (212) was basic, a bit worn but was not too fussed as it was only an overnight stay. We pulled the spare bed out from under the double to find it was covered in thick dust and clearly has not been cleaned for a while. A bit disappointing but was not a big issue. We slept fine, and breakfast was good. We headed back to our room to pack and check out, when packing I pulled the bedding back to ensure sure none of my belongings had got stuck in the bedding. Upon pulling the bedsheets back I was horrified to discover my bedsheet was splattered in someone elses blood! I have attached pictures. I was appauled, upon checking out we highlighted our issues to the lady on reception. She said she would make a log of our issues but we needed to formally complain online, which I did. Nearly 3 weeks later I received a generic, poor reply from a Guest relations advisor named Sharon. Her first email stated that I should of raised my issues with the reception before complaining?! Which I did and stated this in my original complaint? She seemed to bypass any of my issues or concerns and commented that the 'stained' bed linen was disappointing and she would highlight this with the housekeeping team. She seemed to want to bypass the fact that the 'stained' bedding was infact someone elses bodily fluids! At the barest minimum I would expect the room to be clean and tidy, but even more so with the current situation I would expect them to ensure rooms were clean to a higher standard and especially free from previous guests blood. Our room cost nearly £70 and she offered me a measly £20 partial refund, to which I refused. I then asked her to escalate my complaint as I was not happy with what was offered. Ever since this, I have been ignored, even after me emailing 3 times asking her to assistance. After trying to resolve the issues with Premier Inn directly, I have fallen flat so now feel the need to warn other guests of my experience. I am disgusted and disappointed with the cleanliness, customer service and customer case. Very poor, I would never stay in a Premier Inn again.

Hi there, Thanks for your message. We're really disappointed to hear about all the cleanliness issues you had as well as the room not being setup correctly as we can appreciate the frustration this would have caused. We'll be sure to get this passed over to the Hotel Management team to ensure the Housekeeping team are carrying out procedures according to our policy. Hopefully we can welcome you back soon and restore your faith with us. Kind Regards, Mo

Had a one night stay here due to visiting the dentist in Rayleigh early on the Monday morning! It is quite cute, really clean and they also have a really good Covid-19 set-up. Had a lovely night's sleep and the breakfast the next day was fantastic. The brunette lady at breakfast was hilarious and really made me laugh! The staff here were lovely and I would definitely stay here again.

1 night stay in a family room for 2 adults and 2 children. Room was smaller than other Premier inns we've stayed at, no bath either which is unusual for a family room. However room was clean and staff friendly, a good night sleep as always. Good hotel.

Check in was straightforward and in these days of social distancing, very safe. Our room was ready, clean, functional and well stocked. Two good night's sleep in the very comfortable bed followed and although the building is close to the road, we were not aware of any traffic noise in our room, which faced the car park. Housekeeping was discreet - at the moment the rooms are only serviced at the end of the visit (unless you specifically request it) - but any restocking of items was available at reception. We would stay again if we repeat our visit.
