We stayed here for 5 nights whilst working in the area. It’s a busy hotel but we found the rooms exceptionally quiet . Only downside is there is no lift.Parking is OK for large vans which is always a bonus! Breakfast is ok, cooked is all made fresh to order. Roma aren’t been cleaned and breakfast has to be booked premier inn seems to be using COVID to have less staff!

Room 10! Mostly the room was ok except for the noise coming from the generator/machinery outside when you open the window which you have to do to cool the room down. The connections on the wall for the TV didn't work, a big let down. However, the worst problem by a mile was that on my last day of my 5 night stay, new year's day, they tried to EVICT me because I had tested positive for covid-19, completely against government guidelines! The ambulance crew, 111 advice and the hospital staff couldn't believe that Premier Inn had done that, they were all furious.

Stayed here whilst visiting friends for New Years & birthday. Excellent Hotel, staff & cleanliness as expected. Quick & Easy check in, with helpful advice and assistance to book breakfasts, taxi's etc. Breakfasts, great start to the day, very helpful staff & great range of foods provided, both with the ranges of breads & cereals & lovely hot plates of cooked breakfasts delivered to your table. Now the bad bit, evening meal. We booked 1 evening meal in the attached restaurant. Wife orders a straight forward pub classic, Lasagne with garlic bread. Came with a slice of dry brown bread instead of garlic bread & when mentioned, they gave her a slice of garlic flatbread (& charged her separately for it), also would have been nice for there to have been some meat in the Lasagne, not just Ragu/tomato sauce. Was more like a pasta topped tomato sauce pie than a lasagne. Most of it went uneaten & to be fair when mentioned to the serving staff at the end, they removed the lasagne from out bill (but not the garlic flatbread strangely). Put a downer on our last night in the hotel.

Clean, tidy and location is great. We went to visit family over Christmas 🎄 should have more different teabags in the room, as they only have coffee and black tea. The world the moved on and people are more into herbal
