When travelling around the UK, we often opt for a Premier Inn. You kind of know what to expect and we are rarely disappointed.
We have stayed in some of the newest Premier Inns, and the Preston Brook is not one of them. Whilst the large screen TV gave the room a modern feel, the unusually high July temperatures highlighted a major flaw - no AC.
We were fortunate and we had a ground floor room facing the front, so we could have our window open the few inches permitted. We also jammed the room door open to allow more cool air in from the hallway, and still the room was a constant 27 to 28 degrees. Unfortunate that the room thermostat regularly reminds you of the temperature and the lack of AC. There was a fan provided.
That said, if you visited on any of the other 51 weeks of the year when the hotel was dealing with traditional uk weather, I imagine it to be the perfect place to stay. Sure the M56 is in the back garden, but we selected it for its location and convenience. I can't complain about the motorway that got me here after all.
Staff were extremely friendly and the regular 'alright luv' from the ladies on reception will be a lasting memory of our visit.
Overall just fine, with a request for AC on the next makeover. More
