Ignore the lorries parked near the hotel car park entrance! I was shocked to see them and thought we'd made a mistake and stayed at the Royal instead. The hotel staff gave us a lovely warm welcome after our dreadful journey in the heavy rain and they don't like the lorry park either!.
The hotel is much what you'd expect of a Premier Inn, although this one did feel a bit more basic to be honest. There was no heating in the shower room (no bath) and the room heater was governed to not exceed 23 degrees, which when there was snow and sleet outside did feel a tad chilly. However, obviously Whitbread want you to spend time in the bar and not the room.
The receptionists and room cleaners all had a friendly smile and manner and this made up for any short-comings. The hotel entrance was blocked off due to slates coming off the roof and awaiting repair, which meant we had to walk through the bar/restaurant to get in or out but that wasn't a major problem.
Judging by what was said by locals we met in the Plough pub (would recommend pub ambience and beer) in Ashby town, the locals feel Ashby doesn't have a decent hotel at all.
