“Good value for clean and comfortable family stay.”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

Booked a family room for £61 a nite as we had to attend a wedding on 1 Sept. 2012 at Accrington. The hotel called up a couple of days to check and confirm on our requirements - a baby cot in the room which I thought was excellent of them to do so.
The hotel is convieniently located off the M65 Motorway and on arrival our, we were welcomed by a helpful and polite receptionist who promptly checked us into a clean and pleasent smelling room which had plenty of clean towels and extra piillows. The bathroom was clean with complimentary shower gel provided as well. All other amenities are as described here on other reviews so no need to repeat them.
I would definetly book this hotel again as it felt safe and we had a comfortable one night stay here.

Another business trip and another Premier Inn stop over.

Nice location, good food and service, decent room - clean and comfortable.
Good WiFi connections in room & restaurant / bar areas although still not free WiFi.
Staff very friendly and efficient.
Will use again.

Two night stay Friday 9th Saturday 10th August 2012. Staff were really friendly and professional. Food is served at attached Brewer's Fayre. They do a really good value buffet each night for £5.99 with a different theme each night (Chinese, indian, fish etc). Just a couple of comments really, when we returned to our room (215) on Saturday night the smell of drains/sewerage in our room was overwhelming....not pleasant! The rooms get rather hot and unfortunately the air con doesn't lower the temperature, although there was a fan in the room. The second comment is with regards to breakfast, be warned that they start serving carvery at midday so there is a rush to finish if you come down just before 11 (breakfast served until 11 at weekends) with the staff warning you that they had to clear down to get ready for lunch. They ran out of a few items as well such as croissants, fruit etc. Good location for the centre as a taxi was only a fiver.

My son (15 years old) and I stayed here on Friday 10th August for one night. We had booked the room well in advance so it was only £29. We chose this hotel for the location - we were attending an event in Blackburn the next day. Room 120 was spacious comfortable and clean. The Reception staff were friendly and helpful as was also the Waitress at breakfast. We had the Continental breakfast which was good value for £5.25. Good value for money.

Visiting family in Darwen, this Premier Inn was so conveniently situated. We popped into the hotel last year and were shown the rooms, with a view to us using the hotel on our next visit. We have not been disappointed. Such good service and excellent value for money. Will have no hesitation in using the hotel next year.

Situated next to Junction 4 of M 65.
On arrival Wendy told me I had been booked into a room on the top floor. Obviously bearing my age in mind, she kindly offered to change this for the ground floor, which was very much appreciated. There is no option to state a preference for a ground floor room when booking online.
Comfortable room, good food in the restaurant, large car park.
Usual Premier Inn dim lighting, energy saving bulbs hiding behind thick shades and diffusers. The best spots for reading a book were just inside the door, or in the bathroom.
Swift breakfast service, on the second day my plate, toast, butter, marmalade, paper napkin and apple juice, were spirited away while I went to get a cup of coffee! The next morning I was asked if I wished to order while I was eating toast, with the used cereal and cooked breakfast plates still on the table. Pointed out I was nearly at the end of my breakfast. The waitress retired in confusion, without taking away the used plates! Nevertheless, the waiting staff was cheerful, and overall I was happy with the service.
An excellent hotel with cheerful friendly staff.

We came up to Blackburn to visit family and for a change we thought we would stay at the Premier Inn. We chose the Premier range due to our previous experience. We found the receptionist at check in (Wendy) extremely helpful and pleasant. The room was good as was everything else about the hotel. Our only issue was with the meal deal that Premier Inn offer. The Brewers Fayre inn next door was where you had your meal and breakfast. The service and standard of food was terrible. We were shown to a seat and then forgotten about. When we finally got served we waited ages for our starters and then ages for them to clear the plates and serve our main course.We were only thought about if a waitress passed by which wasn't very often. The standard of the food was not good, the soup I had ordered was not fit to serve. The pudding were served so hot my wife and I both burnt the roof of our mouths not realising they were so hot. The breakfast was much better although the cooked breakfast service was again very slow. Whatever you do, don't have the meal deal, there are plenty of other places nearby.
We cancelled our meal deal for the second night.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back of the hotel as the front is next to a motorway
