I stayed here for one night while I was travelling on business from Teddington to North Wales as it is a great location just off the M5.
On the plus side: usual high standard of room we all expect from Premier Inn - very clean, large, somewhere to put your things, good TV, comfortable bed, nice bathroom.
On the minus side: at check in there were 3 people ahead of me, one of whom had no reservation, so I was waiting a little while, but the receptionist didn't say 'sorry to keep you waiting'. Just a little thing, but I was so tired and it was late and I would have appreciated a polite acknowledgement of the delay.
She didn't explain about breakfast - where to go, times etc. -I later found the info on a leaflet in my room.
This Premier Inn is definitely not as quiet as every other Premier Inn I have stayed in. I could hear people in the corridor throughout the night. This kept me awake a bit which was a nuisance as I had to be up very early.
The main Premier Inn sign on the road side was not lit up making it hard to find at night. I mentioned this to the receptionist and she said she'd tell the maintenance people. Hard to believe that the staff had not already noticed that their sign was out and done something about it.
So all in all I would stay here again because it is such a convenient location but I would make a point of asking for a quiet room (end or corridor?)
