“Lovely hotel and great food”
Reviewed February 19, 2014

We stayed here as a family to have a short break. It was a nice hotel, clean and tidy. Our family room was lovely, the only minor thing is that it was too warm and we couldn't open the window so sleeping was a hot matter!! The breakfast was delicious, as much as you want - lots of choices for kids. We ate there for our evening meal and that too was lovely. Good value for money.

My fiance and I stopped at Chester on the way home from visiting a friend. We had been recommended the Premier Inn. We were not disappointed. We arrived early for check in but were allowed to park in the car park so we could have a look round the city. The car park it's self is small but very secure, as it is covered by CCTV which is constantly monitored from reception. This also means that reception staff know how much space there is. The reception staff were very helpful and genuinely seemed to be enjoying their jobs. The room was spotlessly clean and the bed very comfortable, a choice of pillows is available although only one of each type so as we are used to sleeping with two each we used both. We were also very impressed at how quiet the hotel was, a difficult task to achieve in the middle of a busy city. Premier Inn certainly lived up to their good night's sleep guarantee. I have marked down slightly due to two points. The first is that the shower gel dispenser didn't work and the shower door was quite difficult to close from inside (both things housekeeping could easily miss). The second reason is that you only get half an hour free wifi before you have to pay and the signal was weak, we visit a lot of hotels and do tend to expect wifi to be free for the duration of the stay. That said this is a budget hotel chain and costs have to be kept down some how.
Overall a very enjoyable stay in a lovely city.

Great bargain hotel, plain simple rooms but clean and with everything we needed. Booked 3 rooms for a group of 6, we were all located next to each other which was great, one couple had to move because the room stank of urine ???? They were moved immediately and with no issue, fab one night stay in a basic but clean and adequate hotel

We stayed 1 night on the 16th February.Checking in was very good and the reception staff provided a map and directions to the city,it's attractions and shopping areas.We did not eat given the hotels locality so cannot say what food was like.The Hotel itself is set on a street with bars and restaurants on.It's also a two minute walk to Harkers a really nice real ale and food bar, on the Canalside with other food and drink establishments nearby.Would definitely use when in Chester again.

Having booked last minute for night away, having never stayed at a premier inn before we were pleasantly surprised. Hotel was clean, modern with comfortable rooms/beds. The staff were extremely pleasant and helpful. The breakfast was great and good value for money. Will definitely stay again.

Stayed here for two nights and upon arrival the room stunk !!!! Whoever had stayed previously had been smoking in the bathroom with the smell spreading in the main area of the room.

I complained and was told they will full so I couldn't be moved but they would go and spray the room while we were out.

Came back to same smell so the "spraying" never happened. 2nd night just as bad which resulted in poor sleep filled with coughing throughout the night.

On this occassion the premier inn guaranteed good night sleep was not met and unlike advertised we were not refunded just got a "sorry about the smell".

The 1 star this review got was for the breakfast which is worth it.

All in all very let down (to the vale of £151) as always stay in Premier Inns when in the UK.
