Trip to Sheffield and needed somewhere to stay so went for the safe option and tried Premier Inn.
Both I and my two boys went for a football match and to see family. We stayed at this Premier Inn because of location and price. Booked the room for three nights and the rate of £29 per night.
The room was simply great. It was spotless, up to date and comfortable. I don’t know how the manage it but the beds are so comfy and after spending a night on them you wake up refreshed and ready to go. The room temperature is perfect. The décor is tasteful and cosy.
There are the usual conveniences like tea and coffee making facilities and a hair drier. This room had the addition of a large flat screen TV with access to all local free view channels.
The staff seemed very friendly but luckily I did not have much call to need them. One was quite attractive with a cheeky little smile that was only too pleased to great you.
The only criticism I can muster is the fan in the bathroom. It sounds like marital aid doing overtime and gets a bit annoying. I suspect that Premier Inn design this fan to make a noise to encourage you to switch it off when not in use and thus encourage us all to be a little green.
I had breakfast in the adjacent Taybarn Restaurant. The cost is £8.25 for an ‘all you can eat buffet’ with up to two children eating free. The food was really good, hot and an excellent wide selection.
This restaurant is open to the general public and, (also during the evening), was frequented by large, rotund ladies with tattoos and boisterous children determined to exploit the ‘all you can eat.’ The determination on those people’s faces when they get up for their third and fourth plateful was a magnificent site that reminded me of those old grainy TV images of when a Steam Driver endlessly shovels coal in to his steam engine.
I’ll certainly use this place again.
