Premier Inn in General
Advantages: Comfy clean stay
Disadvantages: Rude receptionist
The week before Christmas we travelled to rugby to visit family. We decided with there being 5 of us 2 adults and 3 children it would be best to book a hotel. On shopping around we found we could not find anywhere that had rooms for a family of 5. Premier Inn had a special £29 a room per night promotion on so I decided to give them a call and ask if we brought a cot for our son who was 6 months old would it be ok for the 5 of us to stay. I spoke to a friendly women who said this would be fine they would even provide the cot but we decided on taking our own travel cot.
We arrived around 8 pm on the said day and found a parking space very close to the entrance.The hotel itself was well sign posted so we found it easily just of the moterway.We parked up close to the entrance which was perfect as we had a few bags. The parking was free and as it had been snowing grit lay everywhere which was good as I tend to have a habit on ending up on my bum.
We were welcomed by the receptionist she kindly took payment and gave us our room key. We went up to the floor needed in the lift and entered our room. Everything was perfect a lovely king size bed a single bed and a single mattress on the floor. Although the room was large we found it a bit of a struggle to find room for our travel cot but saying that the room was intended for 4 not 5. The beds were very comfy and the quality of the quilts and pillows were high everything needed for a perfect nights sleep.
The room was spotless very clean, the room temperature was perfect but there was a thermostat in the room so we could adjust the heating as we pleased. Also there were the appropriate things need to make tea coffee etc on hand and also body wash shampoo in a dispenser in the bathroom. Clean fluffy towels were provided the whole room was very comfy. There were leaflets around explaining about a breakfast option either a standard breakfast in the joining building or an all you can eat and the children eat free per paying adult. We opted out of this as we could save money by eating at our relatives.
The next morning we left for a busy day visiting relatives and again returned around 8pm. This time we were greeted by a rather rude receptionist. After being stopped and questioned on which room we were in she then proceeded to ask why there were 5 and not 4 of us. After checking we were then 'allowed' to proceed upstairs. The room had been tided bins emptied empty sugar milk pots taken away tidied but not too much as to be intruded.
Again we settled the children down and decided on having a little drink so my partner went downstairs to get us drinks from the bar and also to meet one of our relatives at the front desk as we had forgotten our phone. When he returned to the bedroom he told me he had seen Sarah (sis in law) but that the receptionist was not happy as he had not taken the room key with him when going to the bar. We were not informed about this when we arrived so he had explained this and returned upstairs.
On leaving we were met with smiling faces that checked we had enjoyed our stay and thanked us.Our overall stay was good the rooms were perfect most of the staff were very accommodating to our needs and we were greeted by a comfy clean room. For the price of£29 we were very pleased and even at paying full price we would have been happy. The one downside to the stay was that one receptionist that must have woken up on the wrong side of the bed. When we decided to travel again premier Inn will be our first choice!
Summary: A Premier stay!
