I am doing this review because I happen to like Premier Inns, they are a no nonsense chain of Hotels, and are situated all over the UK & Ireland. This chain is the biggest and also the fastest growing Hotel Company in the UK. The company picks locations that do not normally attract high rates, and use quite a few industrial estates. The sites may not have lovely picturesque views, but there are none with noise or vibration from heavy traffic.
They have nearly 600 Budget Hotels in total, and are actually part of the Whitbread group of companies. The Hotel even has cheap rooms from a little as £29 per night, although there are restrictions of course. The Hotels all have restaurant facilities, and are famous for providing Fogarty quilts & pillows in every bed. If your Premier Inn is full, you will be helped to find alternative accommodation, at the original Premier cheap price.
All of the rooms have the usual facilities, coffee and Tea making equipment, hair drier etc. The quality of the tea and coffee is very good, and there is usuallyenough sachets provided. The baths and showers are all kept very clean and in perfect working order, and towels are provided as usual. There are signs explaining that millions of pounds are wasted each year, by laundry that is done without really needing it, they suggest you leave towels on the floor if they are dirty, and allow them to remain hung up if they can be used again. You will of course find the usual complimentaty soap and shampoo. The shower gel they supply is actually Imperial Leather!
I have always found the staff to be friendly, and efficient. I have asked for extra coffee and been given it with a smile. Many hotels would begrudge giving away free sachets of coffee, and some have a policy of never issuing anything extra unless you "report to reception". Free wi-fi is provided, and also a table in your room, better than balancing your laptop on yout knees. The televisions all have freeview, with 80 TV and radio channels.
Each double bed has a hidden surprise, there is another single stowed away underneath, meaning the room can be converted into a Family room at very short notice. Car parking is provided of course, and is always secure and well lit. I recommend you to try one of these, it is a pleasurable experience. Thank you.
