Was a alright hotel no carpark for free but one is just around the corner but is not the cheapest of them all. Didn't eat but you can get food from loads of places around the city. Not a bad location no trouble from any of the guest

Lenny Henry was right| We had a comfortable nights sleep when staying at the Premier inn Preston. The bed was very comfortable and extra pillows were available already in the room. We didnt stay for breakfast and we went to Wetherspoons for Eggs Benedict...only because it was a bit cheaper

I had a family room which had a sofa and double bed which meant I could be comfortable on the sofa while watching television. Having mentioned that I was travelling alone for the first time everyone looked after me so well., they were all so kind from the reception to the bar and restaurant, I can't thank you all enough...

Recently stayed here and would recommend it highly. Location is central, walking distance to the rail station. Couldn't fault the staff in any way even if I tried hard. They took extra care in ensuring my stay was enjoyable from giving me best table at the restaurant and being attentive. There was a good choice of food and tasted great...

We've now stayed in a family room in this hotel twice and enjoyed both stays. Very clean and warm feeling hotel. Staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast was really nice but the restaurant did get busy. Good location as 2 minute walk to shops. Also found a nice park nearby. Would definitely recommend.
