We had 3 nights of hell in Barnstaple Premier Inn between 20th and 23rd July 2013. The room temperature ranged between 28 - 29.5 degrees! Totally unacceptable. I wish I had checked out after the first night but was hoping it would improve - instead it got worse! I note the same problem from reviews in July 2011 and August 2012 with comments from management promising to look into the problem. Why, then, in July 2013 is the problem still there. The hotel had been recently refurbished so I don't understand why they didn't take the opportunity to resolve this. The windows will not open wide enough to gain ventilation. The corridor was just as hot. I went to reception during my last night to ask for another fan and complained about the heat but there was no offer of a refund under the good night's sleep policy - what a joke! I've stayed in many Premier Inns in my time and have had a good night's sleep but Barnstaple is the worst I've every stayed in and I will never use it again. Since none of the Premier Inn hotels have air conditioning, I am going to reconsider using them again. The high room temperature was totally unacceptable.
