Thought we'd give the Legacy Preston International hotel a try, a chain we'd never used before.
Very easy to find - although I'm from Preston so knew where it was!! - and more importantly, with a free car park!! We could have stayed at the Premier Inn, but there's no parking on site there.
The hotel is just a short walk from Preston city centre, so handy for the railway station as well as the nightlife.
Checking in was easy enough - we'd already pre-paid on an advance deal, so just had to sign on the line. The reception staff were very pleasant and helpful.
Our room was on the first floor - not much of a view but then that's a city centre hotel for you. I presume the upper floors had a better view, though we didn't venture up to look.
The room was as you'd expect for a budget hotel - not massive, but a perfectly comfortable size with a nice modern feel; plenty of lighting control, new flat screen TV, and a good sized bed with fresh linen. To be honest - it was better than I expected for the price!
The en suite bathroom was compact, but had a bath and a nice powerful shower - you needed the curtain drawing!! Again a simple modern design to the suite. And complementary toiletries - haven't seen those for a while, I think hotels are cutting back!!
The room was very clean with plenty of towels, and the usual selection of tea and coffee facilities. An iron and board, and a hairdryer, usual fodder.
Just a couple of very minor issues re maintenance - a cracked lightshade, though you could only see it if the light was off! And a small chip off one of the bedside shelves, but really nothing to mar the stay.
Breakfast was served in the basement room - the simple but modern theme was carried on here too. We were free to sit anywhere, there was plenty of choice - the room wasn't overly large, but comfirtably accommodated all the guests, and there is additional room in the restaurant. Breakfast was buffet style with cereal and fruit; it was ample, although the bacon ran out quickly! Choice was standard but the food was good.
Checking out was again a straightforward process.
Overall a very comfortable stay - despite being near the city centre, noise wasn't an issue. For the price we paid, I think this was a bargain! You're never sure when you use a new chain, but I'd have no objection to staying here again
