Premier Inn Dudley Kingswinford.
I seem to be having a run of bad luck with the Premier Inn. Can only assume this one is suffering some sort of austerity fallout.
Arrived in the car park, all seems OK. Then you start to look. The curtlage of the hotel is terrible. Rubbish all over the place, glass bottles, cans, plastic bottles, food wrappers, etc. Looks like a few bin liners have been emptied over the place. Easily sorted (staff member, bin liner, twice daily walk around), it's not hard, but it doesn't seem to be a priority.
Receptionist was very pleasant and very welcoming. Usually are at the Premier Inn, and she was very efficient. Room however was a bit of a let down though. As basic as it can get. Dowdy, uncared for, dusty, very very basic, poor bathroom in need of refurbishment. Just glad I wasn't here for more than a night. It was one of those 'oh well, it's only for a night' rooms. You know you should kick-off, but you cannot be bothered.
Always surprises me when I arrive at a chain hotel like this. With the buying power they have, this type of room shouldn't exist. Often stayed at the Premier Inn Trafford Centre West in Manchester, and the new Piccadilly Station Premier Inn in Manchester. They are a thousand times better than this one. The room I had could be transformed for less than £300, into something you would happily stay in.
Got to wonder how often the executives on he board get around to places like this. Imagine eh are at he front of the queue when bonuses are being handed out, but a little less forthcoming when the quality control is required. Can't help thinking they are letting their staff down.
I used the accompanying Beefeater Grill in the evening. It was fine for one night.
Wouldn't mind a job with the Premier Inn. Travelling the country staying in the hotels. This can't take much sorting out. Can it. ?
