“Too hot!”
Reviewed 13 July 2012

Just back from a four night stay. I can't fault the staff, they were all very helpful and friendly. As this Premier Inn only opened this year everything is fairly new. The first room we were given had a broken fitment on the toilet and we were moved to another room with no problem.

I'm not sure if we would stay here again simply because of the lack of fresh air.

Room Tip: The front rooms overlook the Buffet Place and have a view of the road, as far as we could see the ba...

Stayed for one night on Sunday. Friendly Staff plenty of parking. Buffet resturant across from hotel was good value with good wholesome food. Had a nice drink at the bar. Big fluffy towels and nothing was a problem. Try it you wont be disappointed
