With Premier Inn, you know what you are getting, it is one of the benefits of the chain, consistency. This particular one is not quite as consistent as the others.
I got an excellent deal for a mid week stay at circa £40, so five stars for my stay.
Had I paid more, I would have been slightly more concerned about a few minor repairs that needed making to the room (things like water marks on ceiling, cracked tile etc) and there can be nosy people staying, thankfully whilst I was there, they were all tucked in bed by midnight. Manchester Central Premier Inn is more consistent with the brand, but I chose Portland on this occasion purely on price. If price was equal, I'd stay at Central!
Finally even though they now have automatic check-in machines; the reception staff here were extremely friendly at check-in and in the morning, they went out of their way to engage and say hello to guests. Well done, customer service correctly implemented for a change!
