Other reviewers have said it all: great location, friendly efficient staff, super price and budget level eating. I want to expand on three things - comfort, lighting and the shuttle service.
On business trips I usually stay at 5 star hotels. They have everything but I do get irritated by staff running in and out of my room all the time doing useless tasks like turn-downs. And what am I supposed to do with three pillows and six cushions that decorate the bed? In some, the reading lights are pathetic (to give designer atmosphere?), or the desk is badly lit. So that is why I use Premier Inn whenever I can. The staff are just as good as 5 star hotels, the rooms are big enough, the beds are just as comfortable, the showers work and the lighting is good. My rooms on both y recent visits had a big settee with a bright reading light and a well lit desk and FREE wifi (5 star hotels usually charge). The Costa shop was very convenient for snacks and the bar did a good range of typical bar food.
I have a suggestion for the shuttle service. I arrived around 01.00h, tired and it was hot and humid in the transport area. I have a sight defect that makes it difficult for me to see clearly when there are dark places and bright lights so I often struggle to read notices that are at a distance. I followed instructions to the hotel pick-up area but had to ask staff a couple of times. The island where the shuttles stop at Terminal 3 is not clearly marked and there is no sign to indicate that Premirt Inn stops there. There were two other people who were like me, unsure if it was the right place. I knew that the shuttle was every 30 mins but did not have a timetable. There were four people wondering when the next one was due and if they had time to go back to the AC cooled air inside. For the record, shuttles leave Terminal 3 at 15 and 45 mins past the hour so perhaps that should be printed on the reservation receipt. My suggestion is a notice board at the shuttle stop saying Premier Inn and state the times.
Will I use them again - you bet I will.
