Large room - but it was the disability room. Treat that this Premier Inn had been recently decorated Simplicity of rooms. Well thought out but this simplicity is only acceptable if everything is immaculate. Easy hotel to find after long journey

No bad experience with the room but the property's location, and association, with the Beefeater restaurant was not good. The restaurant's exterior appearance, and interior cleanliness was poor and, in fact, after the first night we chose not to use it even though we were staying for 5 nights. We were surprised that Premier Inn wished to have any association with The Albert but recognize the difficulty due toe two properties being physically linked. It does not enhance the Premier Inn at all.
The staff were super. The room was fine albeit the lighting was not great. Overall no complaints?

Staff at the beefeater where you have breakfast and dinner were rude and hard to find. We went for dinner and breakfast and found both times the staff were less than helpful.
Premier inn staff were very friendly And accomodating

On checking in the lady at the desk asked if we had been told that we had a disabled room, we said no to which she said that our booking would have told us. Having since checked it didn't. Anyway, it wasn't a huge deal, the bed was bigger which was lovely BUT we had an awful wet room instead of a bath and shower. This meant that after one quick shower the whole room was soaked so we couldn't use the loo or bathroom without going in bare foot which to be honest just felt a bit gross. The floor also didn't look particularly clean and with the shower water washing around the bottom of the toilet it all just made me cringe frankly. I would not want a disabled room again and would not book if this was all that was available.
The bed was amazing.

not all disabled people are in wheelchairs and their carers aren't either so everything too low in bathroom. Very cold bathroom: didn't appear to have any heating. No long mirror in bedroom or long hanging.....my husband is disabled and 6 foot 2 inches and I am over 5 foot 6 and I had nowhere to hang my dress or coat because the hangers would only hang in the short wardrobe.
Comfy bed Clean

There was noise coming from the fan/ air con. Toilet didn't flush properly.
The location, 5 mins from Colchester station. Also the staff were friendly and helpful and on call 24 hours a day.

The air con units on flat roof outside our bedroom window made us feel like we were in a jumbo jet with the engines roaring. No sleep here.
The staff were all very helpful and friendly.

Given a disabled room on ground floor which had large wet room, lower bed and sinkI did not request and am a Stroke survivor of nearly 4 years, nurse, successful business woman who leads a great lifestyle therefore do not want to be reminded of when I had to use such facilities....I was informed there were no other room but that was not backed up by staff in the adjoining restaurant. I have stayed in Premier Inn before especially Lockyer Quay Plymouth but this one wasn't a patch on,,,,,very tired needs updating......
