Premier Travel Inn (Manchester)
Advantages: Cheap, good rooms, friendly staff and lovely breakfasts
Disadvantages: Pub wasn't showing the football
I recently stayed one night at the Premier Travel Inn at Hyde Manchester (approximately fifteen miles from the centre of Manchester) when I visited the city to see the David Haye vs John Ruiz Heavyweight World Boxing Fight. From start to finish I was nothing other than impressed by the Premier Travel Inn.
To start with, we arrived a couple of hours earlier than anticipated, at midday. Our rooms weren't supposed to be ready until 2pm, but after enquiring at the reception they were ready for us straight away, which was fantastic as we could get changed quickly and make it to the pub in time to see the Manchester United and Chelsea game! After a brief introduction to the hotel and information regarding breakfast and times etc from the hotel receptionist, we were given the keys to our rooms. They were much nicer than I had anticipated with decent sized comfy beds, plenty of cupboard space and a fair sized bathroom; what more could you want? Not bad at all for just over £30.00 per person.
After a nice shower and a quick change of clothes after the long journey up to Manchester from London we headed into the hotel bar for a few drinks. On our way past the reception we asked the receptionist to book us a taxi into the centre of town, which she did through the company they do business with. The hotel bar was nice enough and the drinks were very reasonably priced, although they didn't have a license to show the football so we had to travel to another local pub to see it. After seeing Chelsea beat United we returned to the hotel just in time for our taxi which was ready and waiting for us.
The boxing was great and needless to say David Haye won the fight very convincingly. Afterwards we headed to the 'Printworks' for a few drinks before getting the same taxi back to the hotel. The hotel reception is twenty four hours and I can remember the receptionist being friendly when we arrived back, enquiring as to whether we had had a good night. After a good few hours sleep we were up, showered and heading down for breakfast, which we had prepaid for with our rooms at a cost of £7.95. This seemed quite expensive, but it was well worth it. On showing our room keys we were shown to our table and told to help ourselves to as much tea, coffee, toast, cereal, croissants and fruit as we could eat; great stuff. We all tucked in and it wasn't long before the waitress came over to the table to take our orders for the cooked breakfast. Naturally after a night on the beer we all went for the full English option and needless to say we weren't disappointed.
Once breakfast was over, we headed back to our rooms, packed up and left as we had to leave the rooms vacated by midday latest. There was no messing around at reception as we had already paid on arrival. All that was left was to drop our keys into the key box and make our way to the car in the car park before our long drive home.
Overall, I was very impressed by the Premier Travel Inn. It was cheap, convenient, hassle free, the staff were very friendly and the rooms were fine. I'd definitely stay at a Premier Travel Inn again in the future and would recommend it to anybody wanting a reasonable hotel that doesn't cost a fortune.
Thanks for reading, feel free to comment.
Summary: I'd definitely go back
