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!

Lovely staff very welcoming and helpful. Room was clean and comfortable just as advertised. Restaurant staff were smart and friendly. Food was good and atmosphere was relaxing. Had two rooms as we travelled with adult children no problems with service.

I visited for two nights having planned an event for 23 people in the Balkerne Gate Table Table next door. On arrival Dana was on reception and very helpful. I had, as usual, booked a wet room being disabled, but the planners of this hotel do not seem to be aware that majority of people needing this amenity are in fact disabled. Thereby it was a really long walk at such a large venue for myself and several of my guests. All the staff were very helpful and a credit to the company The room was probably the largest I have ever had in a PI also the bed, which actually with the duvet and wonderful pillows was liking sleeping on a cloud, well how I imagine it! Despite being a large car park right outside the window including large vans, there was no noise. It was disappointing that there was nothing as a channel guide for the tv. All in all one of my best Premier Inn experiences.

Me & my husband stayed here recently as we were visiting family in the area. Great little place, clean & comfortable with very accomodating & friendly staff. We will no doubt stay here again when we're in the area next visit. Extremely pleasant experience.
