As my family live in Rugby we often take a trip down a few times a year to see them all and have a break while we are there and for that reason we have stayed at both the premier inn and Travelodge on a number of occasions. We decided with there being five of us two adults and three 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 and as Premier Inn had a special £29 a room per night promotion 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 woman 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 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 motorway. 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. There was a fair amount of spaces and it did not seem too busy when we stayed which was great as it meant no trouble parking at all.
Brewster’s fayre is right next door to the hotel and perfect for quick convenient food. Although we tend to eat at our relatives when we stay in rugby we have had dinner a few times here and it has been great. When you enter you make you order at the bar and give them your table number the food was served rather quickly and was really nice. They have a simple menu but with a range of dishes on there so there is something to suit everyone. The food was hot and fresh and full of flavour. It is fairly reasonable too they have special offers like 2 meals for £10 and then add a dessert each for an extra £1 as well as deals for the children and the drinks are a reasonable price too. We never had breakfast here but they have special offers when you book a room for example 1 child eats free with each paying adult and next time we visit I think we will take advantage of this offer.
The hotel and our experience
The building itself is fairly new and as you approach it really it just looks like any other premier Inn I have visited the trade mark purple sign on show and this continues as you enter the hotel it is clean fresh and simple. As soon as you walk through the doors you are greeted by the reception desk with friendly staff waiting to greet you. 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 night’s sleep.
