“Weekend stay”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Staff very very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Premier Inn a little dated. TV old style, and cable fixed to the wall with tape, which kind of spoilt the room. Bed very comfortable. Evening meals in the beefeater good value for money. Sat Nav sent us the wrong way with the post code given, best to use the directions given by the Premier Inn.

Family of 4 stayed here for 2 nights in April. Unusually for a Premier Inn, it is in a residential location and, consequently is very quiet - yet less than a mile from M5. Check in was friendly and very efficient. As some of the other reviews have mentioned it is an older Premier Inn but so what - it was spotlessly clean, quiet, comfortable beds, tea and coffee making facilities. Breakfast was served in the Beefeater - a short walk across the car park. Staff were friendly and breakfasts were very good.

As soon as we arrived at this Premier Inn the lovely receptionist warned us that "it was due for a refurb" and it certainly was!!! Having stayed at another Premier Inn on our journey to Cornwall a few days earlier which was excellent we were sadly let down by this choice. Apart from the receptionist on arrival the rest of the staff in the nearby restaurant were lacklustre and not terribly bothered by being cheerful and welcoming. We hadn't booked dinner but arrived at 7 pm and were told we couldn't have a table until 8.15 pm so went elsewhere. Bed comfortable and clean as bathroom but so dated and shabby. Would always check beforehand in future to make sure an update has taken place in these Premier Inns.

Room Tip: Wait until this Inn has been updated

This premier inn was a convenient stop over on way home from Cornwall. The breakfast is really good as was not a buffet and was cooked to order, which was lovely. Kids breakfast is free. The evening meal was also very good and staff did that little bit extra to make you feel really welcome. We will return here on our way back from holiday this year.

First stop on a 4 day family trip. Arrived late and was quite pleased with the Premier Inn and check in. Fast and quick. We stayed in Room 3.
Positives
Cleanliness – Excellent
Reception – Excellent
Beds – Lovely
Area – Quiet, no problems.
Negatives
Windows – Mouldy, almost stomach churning. Did not look good

Air Con – For about an hour, made a bleep every 3 minutes for 45 minutes just as we were trying to get to sleep.
Advice if staying.
Don’t bother with the breakfast unless you have 2 kids. Pop to Sainsbury’s around the corner. Also the fuel was cheaper there than anywhere else we found on our whole holiday or way home. Petrol 133.9p, Diesel 136.9p.

Room Tip: Look for saver deals

I stayed here on a business trip for one night. The room I stayed in was pretty smelly and was annoyingly cold upon entrance. This was because the window was left open, perhaps to hide the smell. This is a budget hotel with definitely no frills. Restaurant is next door which wasn't too bad at all for quick pub grub.
