Reviewed July 13, 2014

You can usually depend on Premier Inn and this is no exception. The adjoining roundabout is noisy - I like an open window - but I knew about this when I booked, thanks to previous reviews! Pleasant evening meal in the restaurant and a tasty breakfast - all very good value as I used the inclusive meal deal option.

If you are looking for a place to sleep at a reasonable price it does the job, nothing more. Functional for business purposes, though I would certainly not stay with my family or for an extended period.

There is a very pleasant riverside walk 1k away (turn right out of the hotel) where I went for a couple of runs. In doing so I passed a pub that looks pleasant enough (2k away) but I didn't go in.

The Beefeater was ok. There is a petrol station across the road.

If you want to feel like Alan Partridge for the night, then this is the place for you.

I found check-in to be hassle free and really friendly and in the evening I went to the onsite restaurant next-door which is a Beefeater and told Alix (or ALX on the ticket) that I would have a couple of drinks before eating and she was fine no constant grief with "are you ready to order now" I had my drinks and then ordered she was informative and very professional and friendly without any feeling of pressure to order something else. All around a positive experience and a nice Premier Inn in a great location. Please Note I accidentally rated the pool and there isn't one but I can't remove it so left it at 5 stars rather than 1.

Room Tip: They all seem OK but I had 4 and that was good.

Have stayed in a few different premier inns, felt that this one was not to the same standard. Had no air conditioning. The room was not as more basic, although the staff were as helpful, courteous and friendly as they always are.

Excellent service, staff were helpful and polite, clean facility all round, however the price of the beefeater next door was pricey but had a lovely meal and WiFi could have been extended. Very happy.

A very warm welcome at reception with all the required questions asked. The location was excellent. Room clean with a comfortable bed. The room was smaller than usual in a Premier Inn and was very uncomfortable during the night even with a fan as no air conditioning. Very surprised at the cost of this Inn as more than ever paid before/
