10 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
Another good night at the Premier Inn
"Can I do Two reviews of the same property? We stay here a few times a year to visit friends in the area. Booked online, no problems at check in . The receptionist was very" smiley" and very helpful . The family room was big enough for three and my daughter had a proper bed rather than a roll away or some foam contraption. The bed linen is always seems to be starched and what you would expect from a hotel..New things for us this time was freeview t.v and internet connection. It's a pity it isn't free wi~fi . We had all you can eat brekfast next door in he Brewers Fayre (childs free) which is a bargain . Attentive waitress service . No problems at all. Even had a cheery "Have a good day " on the way out."

Hotel fine, restaurant hopeless!
"We stayed here for a gymnastics competition and it was the usual premier inn standard, so no complaints there. Breakfast in the attached restaurant was fine (why was the play area shut in the mornings though?). However, the service in the evenings was a nonsense: they would not take reservations until 8.30pm which meant that if you arrived at 7.30 they would not give you a table as they were all reserved for 8.30! When the table did actually become available, there was a further 45 minute wait for food from the point of ordering, which they seemed to think was perfectly reasonable! Simply not good enough, look elsewhere to eat if you stay here."

"Wanted stay in Bath but couldn't afford it! Decided to book into Premier Inn in Chippenham and drive to Bath and use the Â£3 park and ride from Bath University. Proved to be a very good decision. Kids loved the adjacent pub. Very handy."

Just the job.
"Very clean room with controllable heating. Everything you need for an overnight stay. The brewers fayre pub nect door was welcoming and despite being busy were able to fit us in without fuss, even offered us a braille menu without prompting. For a basic hotel this was very good value and a place to recommend. Only problem we had were noisy people gathered outside the entrance late at night chatting rather loudly. A no frills experience but one that was well delivered."

Excellent Value for Money
"Tried booking a hotel/b&b for one night near to Bath with no success. Thought I'd give this chain a try and really pleased we did. The room was spotlessly clean and the bathroom very well equipped. In fact the quality of the room was better than some much more expensive establishments we've stayed in. Paid Â£78 for room + all you could eat breakfast. The breakfast was excellent buffet style and although it was very busy the staff were on the ball replenishing items quickly. The check in staff were all friendly and efficient."

Our First Premier Travel Inn
"This was our first stay at a Premier Travel Inn. It was in a great location - nice and quiet, but easy to get on and off the main roads. The room was slightly on the small side for the four of us. We got the big bed, our daughters were on mattresses on either side of the bed. But the mattresses were full size so they had lots of room. In fact, for our 2nd night, we all traded spaces and the kids had the bed and hubby and I each got one of the mattresses and we still had a good sleep. Bathroom was very large, with a nice large tub. Plenty of hot water. There was also a kettle with lots of tea and coffee for us, as well as four mugs and 2 glasses for our use. Plenty of towels and there were also extra pillows for our use. Morrisons right across the street for us to pickup things for snacks and breakie. We ate our supper at the Brewers Fayre Pub (I think it was called) that was right next to the hotel. Prices okay. Good place for a family. We used this as a place to stay for our daytrip to Bath. Got to their Park and Ride w/no problems so we wouldn't have to drive into the centre of Bath. Would stay here again to visit the area and see more!"

"These travel inn places are always satisfying... simple but never much to complain about as they are great value for money! We stayed in one of the premier travel inn places before and we had no faults then too although this time we felt it was a little less cleaner than the last although that would be the end of my complains! The breakfast in the morning is well worth the money if you can eat a lot! There's so so much choice and I definately walked away with a full stomach as did the rest of the family! Cheap and cheerful... that's my conclusion!"

Very Happy with Premier Travel Inn Chippenham, esp service
"We booked this motel after trying to book a couple of nice B&Bs in Bath. We were told that, because it was Bank Holiday weekend, we could only book for a minimum of 3 nights, and we only had 2. What a pleasant surprise! First, it's very clean. Second, it's near Bath, Lacock, and Castle Coombe, and a good starting point for trips to Stonehenge and the Cotswolds. We thought the Brewer's Fayre restaurant attached was a good value (for England) and the food was very good. I thought 7.5 pounds ($15) was too much even for an all you can eat breakfast, and outsmarted myself by going down the hill for a cheap Burger King breakfast. BK doesn't offer breakfast, and the other attached restaurant wasn't cheaper than Brewer's Fayre, and offered a lot less for the money. The Staff at the PTI was exceptional! All of them were pleasant and helpful, but when we needed to replace a tire (we were driving on the spare), one of the staff (Sharon) drove ahead of us and guided us to the garage so we wouldn't get lost! Marion's heading a great team!"

"A wonderful hotel for anyone with young children. Our room, while nothing flash, was large, clean and had a portable cot set up for our 18 month old without us having to ask. The room does not have a fridge, mini bar or room service but it does have a kettle with coffee & tea and for what you're paying that is quite enough. The hotel has a 'pub' attached to it, though it is a separte building, where you can have your meals and it also has a wondeful indoor/outdoor play centre for your little ones to tire themselves out while you watch with your cup of tea. The bonus for us as well is that they even had baby food jars available and were able to get us warm milk. Location wise it isn't that far from Bath which was our destination. Would highly recommend this to anyone."

"Considering that it was #45 for 4 for us,the price was great. It is next to a brewers fare which serves standard pub food, but does have a brewsters with an indoor and out childrens play area Staff were helpful too."
