We had a good stay in this Premier Inn. We like its location next to the garden centre where there is a soft play that entertained our daughter when we arrived. We weren't aware of the overnight roadworks that closed off the access to our hotel from the roundabout on the A120 and the diversions were a little confusing, that we ended up in the other Premier Inn to get some directions, and they also provided us with the phone number of out hotel, so when we got lost a second time, we phoned reception and the lady there was a star directing over the phone using google maps. We made sure we returned to the hotel before the roadworks started on the following nights.
The staff at breakfast were great too, providing our 4 yr old with a cold plate for her hot breakfast to be transferred to so she wouldn't burn herself, and making her beans on toast.
It was a comfortable stay, and although a couple of time our room card stopped working it was promptly fixed at reception.
