My dad booked this Premier Inn online via their website for a 2 night stay so we could visit our family who live nearby. He booked two rooms, a double room for my mum and him and then a family room for me and the boys.
We arrived at Oldham Central Premier Inn about 5pm and parked our car in the car park. There are number of spaces available but it also shares the car park with the Brewers Fayre restaurant.
Premier Inn at Westwood Park, Oldham
We were welcomed at reception and checked in. I doubled checked that a cot had been booked and we were informed yes. So we headed to the rooms; the boys and I were on the ground floor so we went there first. Upon entering we noticed there was no cot in the room instead there was another single bed. My dad went to reception to ask for the cot which within 10 minutes was rectified and the young man apologized several times. The bedding we received for the cot was not suitable (it looked like a net curtain and not a fitted sheet) but luckily I had bought bedding with me so we just used that instead.
Our room was a good size with a double bed and a sofa bed. The sofa bed had been had up into a bed for our eldest son. The bathroom was a decent size and they have hair and shower gel which was useful. You also had a tray with a kettle, cups, milk, and sugar in the room on the desk. The TV had freeview channels which meant the boys got to watch Cbeebies (YAY!) There was also wardrobe space which is a bonus.
Apart from this small error the staff were great, even giving us an umbrella to get to the restaurant when it was raining.
Our nights sleep was good, our eldest slept all night in the made up bed. What would have been nice is for Premier Inn to give bed rails to customers with young children so you dont have to improvise with towels and spare pillows! Our youngest didn’t like the cot and so ended up in bed with me. Apart from that the double bed was so comfy. The pillows and duvet are so good. I wish my bed back home was just as comfy as I always wake up with back pain.
Would we stay here again…yes we would. Great location near to Oldham, it wasn’t noisey (well apart from the rude people who shout while heading back to their rooms but that isn’t Premier Inn’s fault)
On a second visit to Westwood Park we noticed that Premier Inn had put a blue light above the bed (you can see in the picture above) this gives the room a blue tint when all lights are switched off. It was a bit too bright for our boys to fall asleep with. If you have forgotten your plug in nightlight like we did then there was a mirror near the bedroom door that had lights around it. If you hang a towel over the front of it this then gave the correct light for our boys to sleep. Make sure you check the towel isn’t get too hot.
Has anyone else stayed at a Premier Inn before? Did you enjoy your stay?
