Premier Inn Northampton Gt Billing/A45 Hotel
Ranked #11 of 29 Hotels in Northampton
Reviewed August 20, 2013 via mobile

We stayed here, as a family if four, overnight in order to break up the journey.

The man on the front desk, Denzil, was a delight. So welcoming and friendly. He gave us information about what we could do and when he was on duty until and said he would be available if we needed anything. We were even asked if we wanted help with our bags, a first for us at premier inn!

We had a lovely room overlooking the lake which had been prepared- it appears the management takes note of the reviews on here as, despite it being a hot day, the room was cool and had a fan.

We have been to a premier inn once before and were disappointed by the breakfast in a pub smelling bar. It was completely different here. The tables were not at all sticky and there was no pub smell. The food was tasty and plentiful and service was fast, efficient and polite.

This premier inn has completely changed our mind about this franchise and we would book again.

Stayed at the Premier Inn for one night whilst visiting family in the area. The welcome was warm and friendly and we were able to check in an hour before the official 2pm check-in time. The room was clean and spacious, but very basic. I can never fathom why the mirror isn't above the desk/dressing table area in Premier Inns! Bathroom was OK but I can't abide fixed shower heads. Bed was comfy, sleep was good - although ask for a room at the back of the hotel (lake view) as the car park side can be VERY noisy from the adjacent camp site.

The downside - the adjoining pub, The Quays, is dreadful. Service painfully slow, often popular items on the menu are sold out (order more!?!). We were there on a Wednesday night, which is apparently curry night, although they appeared to have sold out of most curries by 7pm. In the end we gave up with the idea of ordering food and went to the fish and chip shop adjacent to the garage - top draw!

Breakfast was a complete contrast to the previous evening, with food orders taken and cooked to order rather than the usual help yourself buffet style of other Premier Inns.

Will probably stay here again, but only because it's convenient for visiting family in the area.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on our Hotel.

I am very pleased, that our Reception and Housekeeping team made you feel so welcome, and managed to arrange an early check-in for you. Our normal check in is at 2pm, however if we can manage to accommodate our guests, we make every effort to do so.

I am pleased that you had a goods night sleep, and found our beds, comfy, and enjoyed your all you can eat Premier Breakfast.

In regards to your comments about your evening meal, I will forward your comments onto the General Manager for you, as unfortunately this establishment is not owned by Premier Inn.

We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.

We stayed here on the 17th of August for 1 night as we were going to santa pod the next day. The man on the reception was welcoming and kind. When we got to the room it was boiling! We had to plug the fan in and leave it on all night aswell as, the window open as it was too hot too sleep.
We booked a family room and the layout wasn't the best! The room was small and had a king size bed in the middle with a twin size bed either side, but wash all very squashed together and the bedside cabinets were in line with my childs head and was scared she would bang her head.
Overall it was very clean on a plus side! Also the food in the restaurant next door was nice, and great value!

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel.

Thank you for your kind comments, all of our staff are very welcoming, and glad they made your welcome special.

We do take pride in our rooms, we are proud of our cleanliness, and attention to detail. All of our family rooms are standard family of four rooms in Premier Inn’s, we do however have interconnecting rooms, that would provide more space.

I am glad overall you enjoyed your stay with us, and enjoyed your meal in the restaurant adjoining us, I will pass your comments onto the General Manager of The Quay.

We look forward to welcoming you back to Great Billing Premier Inn soon.

Reasonable family room only let down by the lack of air conditioning when the ambient temperature is high.

Fayre & Square restaurant attached to the building serves reasonable quality food but the lack of staff led to 60 minute wait times.

I am pleased that you were happy with your family room. We do not have aircon in any of our rooms, however we do try our utmost to ensure the rooms are cool on arrival in unusually high temperatures by opening windows, drawing the curtains and putting fans on.

I will let the General Manager know your feedback in relation to the Fayre & Square restaurant I am pleased you enjoyed your meal, however will inform her in relation to your wait time.

We look forward to welcoming you back to Premier Inn Great Billing in the near future.

Stayed here 12 - 15th July for car show @ Billing Aquadrome
Great warm welcome
Was in room 18 on ground floor facing the car park.
The room above had creaky floor boards, luckily I knew the guy who was above us so he
kindly avoided the noisey bit.
Used the outside tap at the end of the building to wash the car pre-show - very handy.
Receptionist kindly put my ice blocks in their freezer for me - which was a godsend on one of the hottest weekends of the year.
On the down side the room was very hot and due to security reasons the windows barely opended, and as there was only 2 electric sockets, had to switch off the fan & tv to charge phones.
Overall a fab place to stay for a weekend

Room Tip: Choose a room facing the car park, seem to be less "buggy" and quieter in the mornings
