Reviewed July 13, 2014

Like the majority of Premier Inns this one is good, very good reception, room excellent apart from the fact that the built-in heating did not appear to work and the oil filled radiator in the room had very little effect. Sadly there is no lift.

Excellent breakfast at the Old Bell Inn

Dear Michael J,

Sorry you had problems with the heating. The wall mounted heater is controlled by a thermostat which allows the heating to reach a maximum of 23 degrees celsius. With the heat we have been having this month, the thermostat would not kick in. The oil filled radiators are operational and do provide a good level of heat. What we often find is that the guests turn the dial the wrong way and set them to cool rather than heat, not sure if that is what happened in your case. Other than that I am glad you found the room to be excellent and to your liking.

As we only have two floors it is not cost effective to have a lift installed, you will find that is the case in most two storey Premier Inns.

Thanks for staying with us we appreciate it.

Regards

I needed an overnight stop over for working in Reading so booked this last minute so didn't get a great price - £84
This is a good clean comfortable hotel linked to a decent pub/restaurant in a nice rural location. The room was spotless. My large double bed was 2 mattresses pushed together so there was a ridge down the middle. Ok for me but would have been disappointing if I would have had company! The Bathroom was a bit poky and tired.
Very friendly staff in reception and in the pub. Would def recommend this Hotel as a stopover or short break but try and get the price closer to £50 rather than £80 as that would be about right.

Dear Kevin B,

Thanks for choosing us for your stopover. The pricing is dynamically calculated based on occupancy levels so it is always advisable to book as far ahead as possible to get the best rates, although I realise in your situation that was not possible.

The bed you slept on was a zip&link where the mattresses zip together it gives us the flexibility to convert the bedroom into a twin when required. In future if you end up in a zip&link room you can always ask us for a duvet to be placed under the sheet, you won't feel the join then.

Thanks again for staying with us and your nice comments we appreciate it.

The staff are so helpful & friendly. We have children that require a lot of medication & a lot has to be kept in the fridge the staff made sure it was safe in their fridge & the restaurant staff put our ice blocks in the freezer for us.
The food is excellent value fir money. Our stay was clean & very comfortable. They kindly provided a travel cot for us free of charge. All in all we couldn't have asked for more. The cost if the hotel room was fabulous value for money.

I stayed here for 1 night in June. It's located in a pleasant rural location.The staff on reception were very friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome. The room was clean and fresh. We had some friends who joined us for dinner that evening. All 4 of us chose different meals from the menu and everyone was very pleased. Plenty of good food reasonably priced and friendly staff.
The following morning we were leaving before breakfast started. I don't like long life milk so rather than making coffee in my room I asked the guy on reception for a coffee. He was happy to make it and even refused to accept a tip. I would definitely return.

Dear sinasohn,

Thanks for your feedback. We are one of the older Premier Inns in the country which is why we work twice as hard to make the rooms as clean and comfortable as possible. We have been complimented many times on our cleanliness and standards of room maintenance.

We are in the country so it is expected that guests will experience the things that come with that. Housekeeping always remove any bugs during a room clean, but of course they cannot prevent them coming back until the next clean. The carpets are deep cleaned every 6 months.

The internet is not the fastest however it is more than adequate for email and web browsing which is why, unlike other Premier Inns, we do not charge for it. The car parking is ample and free here also.

The room pricing changes on a daily basis, the earlier you book, the more cost effective it will be. We are a popular hotel and fill quickly which is why for later bookings the prices are higher.

Thanks for staying with us.
