I stayed here for 2 nights alone on business, and found the whole experience definitely not particularly "premier".
Due to previous very positive reviews and the "premier" name, I was expecting a modern flat and building - unfortunately this was not the case.
Firstly the common areas were a bit run down, with no character at all - there were just endless white corridors.
The flat was quite large, so good value, but fronted onto a busy road opposite some somewhat iffy looking shops. I could hear lots of noise from the road (and people outside) as the windows were not double glazed, or the glazing had failed. The trickle vents did not close properly either.
The flat in general was reasonably clean, but a splat of a food-like substance on the window wasn't great. The kitchen was well equipped, even having a washing machine. The kitchen area was definitely the best part of the flat.
The bedroom had a window which was duck taped shut (or half shut), letting in noise from down below. Thankfully this was on the back so was a quieter area.
Part of the shower fell off when I used it.
The flat in general was clean enough but the finish was tired, like a 10 year old travelodge room.
The staff did move me to another flat which was not onto the road, so they did try to help. The windows still let in lots of outside noise, but it was less frequent.
If they sorted out the windows, refreshed the room decor, and made some effort to break up the white corridors, it would much improve this place.
