        • Ideal location for town and very comfortable place. Friendly and helpful staff, nice clean room. Breakfast was very disappointing.

          Overall ok for one night, not good value, would not stay here again and tv was connected to a faulty plug socket was more annoying than anything.

          The most awful hotel ever and bathroom was not very clean.

        • Very convenient to City Centre and the car park is also a big bonus. Reasonable hotel spoilt by traffic noise, excellent service from start to finish and a superior room at the willow bank is far better than that. Breakfast is very good.

          Not too helpful reception, no hot wateer in the morning to shower and cheap tea.

        • City centre staff very helpful, secure car park and just up the road from the curry mile. The hotel itself is excellent, rooms are decorated nice and free drink in the bar between 5 and 7pm. The curtains are thick and do a good job of keeping the light out in the morning.

          Not a great greeting from reception, the manager was not available to talk to us about our complaint and bits in the bathroom were dirty also. Breakfast was adequate in the premier inn we could have our eggs cooked any way we liked.

The beds were comfortable and breakfast was good. The waitress was charming, a friendly concierge was present to help us carry our luggage.

          Decor very tired looking and overlooks a busy main road. Reception is up an awkward flight of stairs and the drinks in the bar are more expensive than many local hostelries.
