As well as being very close to the shops, attractions such as Chill Factore and Legoland are within walking distance of the hotel. Be aware that there are three Premier Inns in The Trafford Centre complex so use our map to check the hotel’s exact location before you set off – the maze of roundabouts at the shopping centre still confuse me.
Large bedrooms are done out neutrally with walnut furniture and splashes of Premier Inn purple – if you’ve stayed in a Premier Inn before there will be no surprises here. Family rooms are a bargain as it costs no extra to put in two extra beds for children - a sofa bed and a slide away mattress.
The bathrooms are clean and have everything that you need. All have a shower over the bath and basic toiletries from dispensers on the wall. As the hotel is just off the M60, some motorway noise can be heard from the rooms although there are plans to replace all of the windows to prevent this.
There is no lounge but guests can sit in a bar area to the left of reception or in the large restaurant.
Eating and drinking
Breakfast is served in the large Brewers Fayre restaurant next to the bar and Costa hot drinks are on offer. If you aren’t in a rush at mealtimes, I would advise walking to The Trafford Centre where there is plenty of restaurant choice.
There are no leisure facilities in the hotel but if all the shopping doesn’t tire you out, guests can use the nearby David Lloyd gym for a charge.
Very friendly and efficient.
Who stays there
