My partner stayed overnight before catching a flight from the airport. Good location and clean rooms. Little noise from the airport as the rooms are week insulated from outside noise. But does that really matter when you have the loudest air con / heating system imaginable. In the end I had to turn the heating off so I could get some sleep. We opted for the evening meal breakfast deal as we have done on many occasions at other premier locations. This one had to be the worst. The evening meal was ok. But I'm still baffled as to how my partners starter of sticky gougeon chicken and my main if the same had the same amount of sticky chicken and the only difference was the amount of lettuce I got. I failed to see the almost 5 pound difference in value. We ordered onion rings which arrived after my partner had finished his main meal.
The usual fantastic breakfast was terrible. The bacon had just been held down on the griddle until it had griddle marks on but was sadly under cooked and was unable to eat it. The mushrooms resembled tinned mushrooms that had just been boiled up. And the tomato had as the bacon just been shown the griddle. It was still raw and cold. That been said the poached egg was cooked to perfection.
If flying from East Midlands again I will have to look else where. Which is a shame as I have always been very happy with the premier inn chain.
This stay wouldn't stop me staying at a premier inn else where though. I just didn't feel we got the same standard we have from other locations.
