...but good staff as always - welcoming, friendly and helpful.
Apart from the staff, this Premier Inn is not up to the normal standard. It's dated and public areas are worn and grubby; the narrow stairs and doors make carting luggage upstairs very awkward and the tiny and tinny TV was hopeless. Interestingly, the stock painting was hung upside-down. The restaurant menu was also probably the least appealing we've come across, so we walked to a nearby pub for a bar supper and decent real ale.
Time for an upgrade and refurb I think - in terms of presentation, it's a long way below the average Premier Inn standard.
It's the only time we've felt that a Premier Inn didn't really provide value for money.
Nevertheless, we slept well.
