    what could you do in 30 min, takes about 10 to get the darn thing set up for starters. just go to forgot password and put john smith and it will ask you to change password and the rest you can work out

    It was only posted to let people know that they have started doing this. If it takes you 10 minutes to put a password in perhaps this is not for you.

    That's great about the restaurant but if you want to check something on the internet before you go to bed this is a better option than running to the restaurant in your pj's. :D

    should be free in all hotels , most of their internet access is a total rip off these days , my pub can do it for free so why not hotel chains

    Your pub wants you to stay as long as possible because you spend more money on food and drinks. A hotel is less likely to benefit from keeping you in the room.

    However now most of the franchise brand guidelines (Holiday Inn for eg) now state hotels should offer a free option with the possibilty to pay and upgrade the speed.

    I still in hotels quite a lot and the some of the prices charged for internet access are ridiculous, some even charge per device. One I stayed in recently wanted £16 per device per night, so for my Iphone, laptop and work laptop it would have been £192 for the 4 nights I was there. How can this be justifiable.

    Since i could get the hotels wifi from the restaurant i suspect anyone in the hotel could also access the restaurants.I think they might even be owned by same company - or at least closely linked.

    Anyway, point was more to the fact most decent hotels these days offer free wifi - only the bigger chains still get away with charging for access.

    I agree that all hotels should provide free wifi, its just another way of squeezing more money out of you at little expense of the hotel. I was'nt suggesting that you book a premier inn on the strength of the free wifi, you book this hotel because its cheap and comfortable. This was just a heads up to anyone booking this hotel that their is now 30 mins free wifi. I think voting cold because you can get free wifi in pubs etc is a bit harsh but thats your choice and what this sites all about.

    At least that is something from a hotel for a change. Last year I'm sure it was something like £1 for 20mins at the premier inn, and when I was staying in the Marriott Hotel in Kent last year and they were charging something like £8 an hour for internet access.

    I didnt say it takes 10 min to put a password in, I was staing that the Inns I have stayed Connection/Signal strength have been rubbish, and no it isnt my L/T that is giving poor performance. In this day in age I agree with previous comments that there should be no charge at all

    I've stayed in premier inns before but never tried the wifi because you had to pay. If they suffer from weak signal strength its probably not worth the hassle.
