The location was good with lots of food outlets close by. The bed was comfortable and the room was quiet. The bathroom was quite dirty, especially the shower cubicle. It was very clear that this hadn't been cleaned properly in a while.

A lovely friendly hotel with excellent disabled facilities. A very warm welcome with good quality coffee available on the lounge 24/7. Would recommend for a quiet stay especially for a shopping weekend at Freeport with the added advantage of a lovely garden centre next door.

Well what can I say when you book a premier inn regardless of location you expect a certain level, and this was far below any other premier inn I've been too. Firstly the room, although the room was 'clean' there were stains in the carpets (easily shifted with a carpet cleaner) and the toilet was definitely on its way out,...

Hi there It's such a shame to hear you were disappointed with your stay. Your room doesn't sound up to our usual standard so we'll be passing this on to the Housekeeping and Maintenance Team to work on right away. I'm also sorry to hear about the poor breakfast at the restaurant next door. Although this isn't owned by us,...

We were pleasantly surprised by our first visit to a Premier Inn the rooms were very comfortable and well laid out and being quite close to a main road it was very quiet so therefore had good nights sleep.

Booked in by one of my suppliers as I was doing a presentation for them. Only 1 night but fine. Clean, good shower, tea and coffee in room. Staff friendly and food next door OK. Plenty of car parking, the only complaint was some noisy revelers leaving the pub but cant blame the hotel for that!
