The Premier Inn chain consistently out-scores similar offers in this market by some considerable distance. This isn’t confined to Edinburgh, it’s a feature of their performance across the entire country. Indeed, they’ll often succeed in registering better approval ratings than hotels which theoretically come from a higher category
A double bedroom.
The St Andrews, Premier Inn hotel is on the edge of the town centre, approximately a 15-20 minute walk to the seafront and the very royal University of St Andrews. The St Andrews Premier Inn is a very recent addition to the portfolio, having opened as recently as the summer of 2015. It features an on-site restaurant, and new generation bedrooms each with an impressive 40″ flat screen TV, bright, modern bathroom with a large shower head, and brand new, slumber-inducing, king-size Hypnos bed
Even though we have to impose some supplementary surcharges in line with passing costs on, we endeavour to adopt a sincere position that doesn’t seek to penalise such travellers and exploit your situation, occasionally absorbing some of the cost ourselves. Despite our commitment to fair play, there is still ultimately only two bottom-line options:
1: Pay a single traveller supplement
2: If you indicate a willingness, we can attempt to pair you in a twin room
It is worth mentioning that a single person will rarely be allowed to play a round of golf solo, and you will almost certainly be required to join a group. This can sometimes work to your advantage though, as you’ll be more flexible.
A simple start to the day ahead
Most hotels operate a cancellation premium of some description. The amount charged however varies between chains, and even different hotels within the same chain, it also fluctuates with little sense of predictability. In addition, the terms and conditions also differ with 3 days to 24 hours being typical cut-off points beyond which cover is invalidated. Group bookings can find they’re subjected to 28 days given that a hotelier takes a bigger risk accepting such a reservation to a mass cancellation. We try to reserve piecemeal as a result
Our policy is to recover what we can for you, but we are restricted in line with what the hotel offers. It’s always helpful to check the individual hotels T&C’s. We advise you if booking by credit card, to check that you don’t hold an added service item that came when you signed up. This might cover you.
