We stayed in a Premier Inn last year and found it to be streets ahead of its main budget hotel chain competitor. After such a favourable experience we were keen to try another Premier Inn to see if they were all as good - and so booked this stay, a one night family trip away for Mother's Day. I was a little worried it would not live up to expectation but it did.
The location is ideal for Bristol, Bath, the M5 and the Somerset coast. As with most Premier Inns, it's in an out of town location, on a roundabout on the edge of town - not very scenic! We didn't venture into Portishead town so can't comment on how near it is, or how nice it is.
The room was bland but spacious and clean. One little niggle was the lack of a central room light - only side lamps - no good if you were wanting to do paperwork. Bathroom was very clean though the cold tap needed attention as would not turn off completely. Plenty of towels, plenty of storage, good quality clean bedding, comfortable beds, a good shower and plenty of warm water - what more could you need?
In the evening we ate in the adjoining Brewers Fayre restaurant. It was very busy – locals and fellow P Inn guests and the service was very slow, though we were warned about this before ordering. The food was pretty good on the whole and staff very friendly, but what made it for our children was the supervised indoor soft play area – the wait for the food didn’t matter at all as the kids were having a great time and we were enjoying a rare bit of time relaxing as a couple.
Breakfast was the usual excellent Premier Inn quality and variety. Excellent value, especially as two children can eat free if an adult purchases a cooked breakfast.
