Lenny Henry was right| We had a comfortable nights sleep when staying at the Premier inn Preston. The bed was very comfortable and extra pillows were available already in the room. We didnt stay for breakfast and we went to Wetherspoons for Eggs Benedict...only because it was a bit cheaper

I had a family room which had a sofa and double bed which meant I could be comfortable on the sofa while watching television. Having mentioned that I was travelling alone for the first time everyone looked after me so well., they were all so kind from the reception to the bar and restaurant, I can't thank you all enough...

Recently stayed here and would recommend it highly. Location is central, walking distance to the rail station. Couldn't fault the staff in any way even if I tried hard. They took extra care in ensuring my stay was enjoyable from giving me best table at the restaurant and being attentive. There was a good choice of food and tasted great... More

We've now stayed in a family room in this hotel twice and enjoyed both stays. Very clean and warm feeling hotel. Staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast was really nice but the restaurant did get busy. Good location as 2 minute walk to shops. Also found a nice park nearby. Would definitely recommend.

Staff were brilliant. Room was very clean. Great security on at night. Bar was good. They had security on the outer door at night as it's in the middle of the town centre. Made us feel very secure. Taxi's right outside if you need 1. Car park less than 5 mins walk way.

A fabulous place to stay in Preston City Centre. Car Parking at a Pay and Display Car Park is a short walk away. The staff were extremely friendly and efficient. The whole stay nothing less than you would expect from a Premier Inn.

I stayed at the Premier Inn Central for just one night. On arrival with my friend we were greeted on the first floor reception by a very pleasant gentleman who checked-us in and informed us of the hotel's dining options and times etc.; nothing was too much trouble. Our room was a twin facility which was spotlessly clean with super... More

Four of us stayed on Saturday November 12. Excellent as always, room was too hot, told reception, was attended to instantly. Buffet breakfast on Sunday morning was superb. Only slight criticism when Premier Inn offer a family room for four, make the room slightly bigger.
