I stayed on a Saturday night at the new Premier Inn Perth City Centre in mid November 2014. I paid £35 on the non-refundable rate. This was a good price for a Saturday night stay, as prices are usually quite a bit higher than for Sunday to Thursday nights.
The building was formerly part of Puller’s dyeworks. I liked the fact the Premier Inn is in a central location, next to the Festival Hall, yet still offers free parking for guests. Free parking isn’t gauranteed, as the hotel has more than 80 rooms and a relatively small car park. Therefore, I planned to arrive at the hotel early to ensure I got a parking space.
However, my plans were thwarted by the SNP conference taking place that weekend in Perth. There must’ve been loads of delegates staying at the Premier Inn Perth City Centre as the car park was full when I arrived around 11am. Fortunately, I knew where to find free parking within a 20 minute walk of the city centre. As the conference ended later that day, I reckoned I’d be able to get into the car park after 5pm.
I checked into the hotel around 3pm. I was allocated a room on the ground floor facing the car park at the back of the building. I didn’t hear any noise from the car park. I thought that my room was lovely; spacious, fresh, comfy and well appointed.
I took advantage of the 30 minutes of free WiFi to upload some photos. I can’t understand why Premier Inn are so mean with the tea and coffee supplies in the bedrooms. You only get two teabags and two sachets of Nescafe.
I’d highly recommend the Premier Inn Perth City Centre, especially if you can find a room for under £40.
