“Pricey, but did what it said on the tin ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013 via mobile

Went to this hotel as a last minute decision so unfortunately the prices had gone through the roof!
Staff were extremely friendly, even at 5am! Good facilities near by and the table table restaurant in the hotel was lovely. Clean, tidy and I'd definitely return.

I had an absolutely amazing stay here. I'd never done the quick check-in before but loved it, put my card in, confirmed a few details and I had my keys in seconds. The room was fantastic, it was a huge room, very clean and the bed was so comfy. When we went downstairs for breakfast the next morning, we were greeted by very happy staff and a very yummy breakfast. I overheard staff talking to other guests about places to visit so they are all very helpful if you need anything.

Pretty much what you would expect from a Premier Inn, clean and comfortable and reasonably priced. This one is in a decent position, close to the train station and within walking distance of the town centre. It looks from the outside like an old multi-story office block, however inside is warm and welcoming. Rooms are standard premier inn offering which is no bad thing as they are clean warm and comfortable. We had breakfast one morning and it was alright although a bit overpriced when you consider what's available nowadays elsewhere.
All in all a reasonable place to stay and I would recommend it if you are in the area

We have stayed at this Premier Inn before so our current visit did not contain any surprises!. The rooms we have since found out do not provide shaver points, a great omission. However the change we find indefensible is the curtailment of breakfast facilities in that only a premier breakfast is available, or a Grab and Go. My wife and I normally require cereal and possibly toast but this is not possible with the current Premier Inn policy ,and the reasons for the change are obscure especially as we have not encountered this at other Inns in the group we have visited this year.
Reception advised us there were several outlets nearby providing the breakfast menu we needed and which was previously provided by the hotel. I hope this policy is altered and an integral catering service is made available in the morning.

Room Tip: Go for the upper floors

Only a couple of minutes walk from the station, with trains to and from London every 10 minutes (weekdays for much of the day) taking 30 minutes to Stratford.

1. The hotel
On entering the hotel you're met with a bank of machines to book in, but help is always on hand, if needed. There are lifts - especially as my room was on the 9th floor. As usual, this was a standard Premier Inn room except the bed seemed harder than in other hotels in the chain - so, clean, well laid out (although there is a beam sticking out close to one side of the bed), Freeview TV and radio (although like all Premier Inn hotels needs retuning to current channels); tea and coffee making facilities; en-suite bathroom; free 30 minutes Wi-Fi. I was, however, woken about 5am by trains from the station along the road, which were then regular every few minutes. (Not all stop at the station.) Being on the 9th floor, this was surprising, but might also apply to all even numbered rooms on that floor and maybe on other floors as well. Maybe I should have tested their 'Great Night's sleep' guarantee ! All staff during my stay were friendly and helpful.

2. Thyme restaurant
The restaurant is inside the hotel and not separate as in the other Premier Inn hotels I have stayed in. The service was very good, although when the bill was presented (by a different waitress than the one who had served me), I did have to point out that one item had been left off. A very pleasant meal - duck parcels; mushroom and garlic risotto and berry pavlova - served promptly; well presented and very tasty.

Breakfast was disappointing. There is no continental breakfast option as with other Premier Inn hotels, just the more expensive full English. However, again unlike other restaurants in the chain, these were not freshly cooked to order, but self-service - laid out under hot lamps, meaning that some items ended up overcooked and/or rubbery. Definitely NOT value for money, which means a lower rating than otherwise would be deserved. Consider having breakfast elsewhere.

I live in Essex but had a friend from Scotland staying to go to Sugar Hut. Flavia on reception could not have been more helpful, and all of the staff made a real effort.
There was even a guy on reception waiting to order everyone pizzas as they came back drunk!!

I stayed for 2 nights last weekend, its was a great location near the shops/bars and near the train station if you wanted to go to London it was a 30 minutes journey.

The breakfast was fab worth the money, all in all it was a great stay no issues with the hotel, the only disapointing thing was on my way out I left my dress ring in the ladies and went back 10 minutes later and it was swiped!! Just as well it was only £3 from Primark so replaced it the day after haha.

Definately and good location.
