Our car broke down as we arrived, entering the car park. All the staff, without exception, were very attentive and helpful. They supplied us with water for the car during our stay and return journey home. We were most impressed and we shall certainly sing your praises.
Great location that fits in really well in such a historic town. Supported well with surrounding faculties (bars, restaurants etc) Staff excellent.
Not much not to like.
FRIENDLY AND SUPPORTIVE STAFF

lack of parking
Was lovely and clean and staff very friendly. Breakfast was very good quality with lots of options.
The view from our window was literally a building site which was a bit disappointing but my 6 year old loved it :)
nice comfortable bed bed excellent breakfast
need more car parking
Courteous staff!! Had a comfortable stay.
Housekeeping did not change my room's bed sheet which put me off a bit. A small fridge in the room would have been great.
Staff were all friendly and helpful. Breakfast was excellent!
did not get a parking space on the first night of our stay. Had to park in the public car park near to the hotel and wake up before 8am the next day to park in a pay zone!
The staff are caring, and value there visistor
One morning they had no mushrooms, very disappointing
Central position close to all amenities
Friendly staff Comfortable beds Good size room Optional cooler blanket & softer pillows Breakfast
No iron in room Np biscuits in room
No decaf coffee in the room
From the time we arrived until our departure the staff were both friendly and helpful. They were cheerful no matter the time of day or night. The rooms were clean and spacious particularly the disabled bathroom and cleaned every morning Breakfasts each morning were worth getting out of bed for.and the .meal we had on the first evening was very good We would like to thank everyone for making our stay so pleasurable
The fact that your breakfast sausages were not for sale to take home with us.
Closeness to restaurants. Bed size excellent. Hotel still quite new. Breakfast very nice with good coffee.
Car parking arrangements. Building works next door starting at 8am despite being told they would start much later!
General overall feel-good comfort
Even though the staff were busy and having trouble with terminals the greated us told us what was going on and were very professional when other guests interrupted their flow. Staff in the restaurant were efficient polite and very helpful. Room was comfortable and as expected
Would have liked more clear information regarding the carparking. Prior to booking. A bit more clear instruction on how you used the cards in the lift. Please. Nothing major just may help other guests
Excellent quality of rooms. Great breakfast
Comfort of the room plenty of space
The restaraunt was ok but the evening menue was very limited and expencive .the bath is dangerous when showering as it is very slippery a bath mat should have been there before i slipped not after.
Staff were excellent. Place was usual high quality and clean.
Had to park in an unlit car park some way away
I liked the restaurant being on site, also nice and close to the station and town and staff were great especially Jessica,
The bed is not as described in the advert I slept for less than an hour, I was told you have not got the new mattresses yet as told in advert ,the bed to me was awful as I am used to soft bed I believed the advert so I stayed there for that reason I was exhausted in morning very bad of premier not to say that they have not got the new beds yet
Comfy, quite new hotel by the old brewery. Close to train station. Smiling, helpful and vibrant staff.
Had to pay extra for the wifi...
Smart, super clean - has that just opened feel about it. Facilities are great and location is perfect. I chose Premier Inn because it always beats any other chain hotel hands down and I would rate the Dorchester one as coming a very close second to a Radisson-Blu. As I was a solo traveller, I had my evening meal in my room and whilst a tad pricey it was very good quality and value and I couldn't eat it all. I didn't try the breakfast as I set off very early.
On my online booking I asked for a quiet room as I had a long forward journey very early the following morning. So I was annoyed that my room was adjacent to the door which all first floor guests come through all night from the lift and it kept banging. Worse, was that despite keeping the window shut, there were huge extractor vents right beneath my window and so the continual noise meant I had less than 4 hours' sleep even after resorting to ear plugs. 'They' were sorry in the morning and said they'd refund me... will wait to see if Premier Inn do what they promise. I would go back if I had a room in another part of the hotel (and I would take my own soap and shampoo as the complimentary 'push' stuff attached to the wall was dreadful. Mattresses are a personal choice but I did find it a bit too hard.
air con comfortable beds plenty of bedding and towels clean equipped
unlike a B&B you do not get breakfast included within the price. The hot corridors.
