A Good Night Sleep!

By Clo Hutch @lashesoflife

How important is a good night sleep, eh?

Have you ever been away for a holiday, short break or business and stayed in a hotel where you’ve lay awake due to noises, thinking someone’s going to walk in, an uncomfortable bed, it being way too hot in the room…the list goes on right…I’m sure I’m not the only one. Although I’m probably one of only a few who thinks too much of work before bed, therefore not sleeping due to anxiety and probably dreaming of work things – I’m so silly!

Last week and the week prior I stayed away on business for a total of four days, as many of you might know, due to being on event. One of the four nights I stayed in a fantastic cosy B&B run by an absolutely lovely couple in Solihull. They made me feel so at home that I had no problem sleeping. The other three nights we stayed in Premier Inns.

The first night of the three in total (during the first week of event), I must say I didn’t get the greatest night’s sleep, but I think I was a little nervous of making a fab impression whilst away. However, the other two nights in a Premier Inn were fantastic!

The rooms are kept the same, whichever Premier Inn you stay in, so if on business and traveling from place to place this works so well as they start to feel homely and normal.

Some of them have just been refurbished and others are going through refurbishment. I stayed in a refurbished room in Watford North and look at how gorgeous it is…

Big flat screen TV..not that I had much time to myself to watch it, and really needed my sleep by the time I got in! 

Built in hairdryer definitely came in handy! (The straighteners are mine though :P)

The bed was SUPER comfortable!


We had some great restaurants on site too, with the Beefeater being next to our Premier Inn in Milton Keynes and a TGI’s in Watford – so lucky! We had some delicious meals to fill us up after a hard day on our feet before walking the short distance back to our rooms and clambering into bed. We even managed a cheeky cocktail at TGI :P

We had breakfast one morning too, the only morning we didn’t have to be at the shopping center extremely early – an all you can eat continental for about £6.50! Bargain. It was delicious, we had yoghurt with fresh fruit and granola and finished off our banquet with crumpets! The full english, again all you can eat, is only roughly £8.50 and both of the options came with unlimited juice, tea or coffee! We definitely started our day well.

If I need to stay away again I will definitely be looking into staying in a Premier Inn. For all you leisure travellers and business bodies, I highly recommend this homely, gorgeous, comfy hotel!
