Stayed for one night on the 27th December. Can't praise the staff highly enough, we went with my wifes aid dog and they couldn't have been friendlier or more helpfull. Even gave us a larger room so we would have more space for our dog. Room was lovely and clean, spacious with a large comfortable bed. Easy parking, good pub right next door, didn't have the breakfast but the dining area looked fine.
Staff at this hotel should be very proud of their customer service, would put many more expensive places to shame. And all for thirty quid ! Didn't see Lenny though....
Highly recommended.

I asked for a quiet room at the back of the hotel having stayed here before and had a room at the front - the smokers conversations are really banale. This time I had a room at the back and got woken at 2.am and 4.am by other guest returning late and slamming doors the first night and 3 am the following night. The room thermostat didn't seem to be linked to the heating and the room was cold

So far we have never stayed at a Premier Inn before and having paid only 29£ we expected something similar to a Travelodge.
We were really surprised to find a modern, spacious room with a huge comfortable bed (comparable to those comfy Hilton beds) and a large TV. Staff was super friendly and as other reviewers have pointed out it was very quiet. we didn't hear any noises from outside nor inside the building. There are lots of dining options nearby and Freeport Designer Village is only 2mins. away. If you have a late flight into Stansted I would definately drive those 15mins. again and stay here at the Premier Inn rather than staying at one of the airport hotels. You will get much more rest and have more dining and shopping options.

A good budget hotel, and a credit to the Premier Inn brand. The receptionist was friendly and welcoming, the room was clean and comfortable, parking was plentiful, and it was surprisingly quiet. We were a bit concerned about having a ground floor room right by the entrance, but the double glazing is efficient and we couldn't hear anything outside with the windows shut. We passed on the pub next door - our local is also (unfortunately) a Vintage Inn, so we knew the food would be pre-prepared and probably disappointing. Instead, we headed over to Freeport shopping village for a very good burger at Tutti. Breakfast the following morning was plentiful and well cooked. We would have no hesitation in staying here again if we're in the area.
