my manchester stay at premier inn

06/05/2013

hello everyone!

premier inn had been kind enough to provide a hotel for me knowing i was coming for MFW but unfortunately two weeks before the news broke that it had been postponed until later into the year. despite making them aware of the situation they still said i could have the stay, how amazing right? i'm already a huge fan of premier inn, regularly using them for all my previous visits to manchester. scaling from west didbury, old trafford, trafford centre and deansgate locks every experience has been the same, you can't fault the service. they put me up in premier inn piccadilly, right in the center of manchester. as i no longer have a car to commute with it was a huge relief that my hotel was situated in the center as it was literally a two minute journey in a taxi from the bus station. each morning me and liam were able to do a simple five minute walk to the arndale center for a spot of shopping or a bite to eat (which we did most days which has left me feeling about a stone heavier and my bank a huge sum lighter) and then piccadilly gardens was right there too incase we wanted to hop onto a bus to go outside and venture elsewhere, like the trafford centre. i wish i'd photographed more of what i saw in manchester as it really is such an interesting city and my favourite place in the whole of the UK!

i was also very kindly given a complimentary breakfast buffet each morning (liam too!) and free wifi for the final two days of my stay. this was an absolute godsend as i kept waking up at 8am like clockwork so it meant i could get down and have something to eat and be back before the lazy bum i call a boyfriend had even moved. i always filled up more than enough for breakfast AND lunch because it was a buffet, and there was always so much to choose from depending on your mood. don't judge me for taking extra yoghurts and muesli packets for snacks later on, they were free after all! the wifi was also very fast and was so much better than i expected it to be, which was great for blogging as it meant i could keep up with my emails, blogger, my twitter account and of course instagram! but it is actually only £3 for a whole 24 hours which is easy peasy and super cheap and you can pay via paypal too which i actually did do for the two days before i was given it free from premier inn.

i tried to make the room as homely as possible, with liam even giving me all the wardrobe space (the cutie) and the mirror to place all my necessities, unfortunately this did mean he got the bathroom and the desk which means i couldn't photograph anything there as his stuff was all over there. products i could not have lived with whilst i was away would have to be my philosophy 27 wishes beauty balm*, xen-tan morrocan tan* and my label m resurrection dust*. i can't thank premier inn enough for offering this to me! you made my stay in manchester more enjoyable and relaxing than i ever thought it could have been. the location was perfect and i can't recommend the hotel enough, even the restaurant downstairs was absolutely beaut. me and liam were really boring when it came to the evenings so three out of our five days we just had meals in the thyme restaurant situated downstairs. the prices of the food was really reasonable and the food was yummy, leaving me bursting at the seams afterwards! my favourite had to be the dough sticks me and liam shared with six ranges of dips such as guacamole, salsa, garlic butter and sour cream. i love food far too much, however this means i'm now on a diet to shed the pounds from all my indulging.

  2. I love staying in Premier Inn - they're a cut above Travelodge and they are worth the extra cash! In my experience, they're always clean and quiet, which is really all you need when travelling! I stay in Premier Inns everytime I'm in the UK! x

    1. I agree with you 100%, I can't stay in travelodge's as they just aren't a good standard. The extra 10-15 you pay is so worth it x

  6. This may sound really random but I love the fact Yeo Valley yogurts have made it all the way to Manchester! The main factory is just outside my town and I know loads of people who work there. My colleague's husband does and she brings us some in every now and then. I don't blame you for taking extras hehe.

    Sounds like you had a great time. I haven't ever stayed in a premier inn but ill definitely consider staying now x

  7. Oh wow, how kind of them! I've never been to Manchester but I'd love to go shopping there. Premier Inn has a bit of a bad rep but I have no idea why, I've always found their rooms to be really nice and clean.
