DH and I have two young teenagers, making personal time very quiet indeed! Premier inn have just emailed me rooms from £35!

Wibu to book a local one for a Friday night and get Granny in to mind the kids?

Oooh, for the days of shagging all night. (If you say do it, I will!)

YANBU. And the beds are extremely comfortable for the sleeping part!

Can't you send them both to Granny's/for a sleepover instead? Then spend the £35 on a bunch of flowers for Granny and the rest on alcohol.

But there's something about a hotel room, Peri!

Wantitallnightlong Mon 18-Jan-16 23:17:36

Hmm, no consensus.
Isn't there something good about a hotel even if it's only premier inn though?

TheWomanInTheWall Mon 18-Jan-16 23:17:47

You can't get caught up in a quick load of washing etc if you've popped away for the night!

Do it. Staying at home not the same IME.

Book it!

LeaLeander Mon 18-Jan-16 23:19:40

Go for it. Take wine and picnic food. Turn off phones.

ExitPursuedByABear Mon 18-Jan-16 23:20:51

We got the email.

Go for it.

I'd enjoy a night away if we were going somewhere, but not for the sake of it tbh. I think i'd rather spend the £35 on a meal out or drinks or cinema etc and then spend the night at home!

SaucyJack Mon 18-Jan-16 23:22:28

If I were you I'd book it just for me.... and leave DP and the kids at home.

Nah, go for it. Nothing to lose and everything to gain.

Premier inn has better beds than travelodge or holiday inn, rooms are a little more welcoming and wifi is free, or £5 for "streaming" standard.

Breakfast at travelodge is depressing, but decent enough
at P Inn, if you want it.

Why didn't I get this email, humph!

Wantitallnightlong Mon 18-Jan-16 23:23:36

I love you all! So will DH.

Not sure what Granny will think of you though winkgrin

YellowDinosaur Mon 18-Jan-16 23:24:07

We've spent the money before for the uninterrupted shag and not even bothered staying the night!

Do it

WorraLiberty Mon 18-Jan-16 23:24:34

Me and my DH did exactly this a few months ago.

The Premier Inn was only a 20 minute drive away, but we went for dinner, went to the cinema and had a thoroughly lovely night out.

Our teenagers enjoyed it too, because they got thoroughly spoilt by granny grin

Evabeaversprotege Mon 18-Jan-16 23:24:47

Do it!!

Go on, do it now!!

(Mine are 11 & 14, I feel your pain)

ThomasRichard Mon 18-Jan-16 23:26:17

Excellent idea, book that room and make a proper evening/night of it!

ladymariner Mon 18-Jan-16 23:27:42

Absolutely go for it, there's something about staying in hotel rooms..... Enjoy!
(goes off to check Emails for premier inn deals..... wink

You've done me a favour op!

We have a wedding in April about 4 hours away and i'd made a reservation at the nearest Premier Inn for two night for £123.

I've just looked at their website again out of interest and seen the saver rates advertised...so have just paid for the 2 nights on a saver rate which cost £70 smile

You saved me £53 so Mwahh!

Are these saver rates a new thing? I can't believe I missed it, I only booked a few weeks ago!

WhyCantIuseTheNameIWant Mon 18-Jan-16 23:39:49

Everybody wins!

Leave granny and the teens a treat. Wine? DVD?

Have a nice night out. Meal/cinema/peaceful night.

TheWomanInTheWall Mon 18-Jan-16 23:41:56

Probably a winter sale or summat, Peridot.

Redglitter Mon 18-Jan-16 23:44:38

My ex and I used to book the £19 rooms when they were advertised and use it for the afternoon blush

MotherKat Mon 18-Jan-16 23:47:49

Really glad you went for it, there's nothing quite like a hotel room to take your mind off the laundry/washing up/shall we paint the ceiling stuff that distracts you when you try a home date
