Some people who come and enjoy fitness in Preston actually want to stay a few days or are here on a short few days away and want to find the best budget hotel in Preston.
As the city is linked quite closely to the M6 it’s easy enough to find some of the best value places to stay in the North West.
You’ll find that the majority of these budget style hotels can be got for less than £50 per night on weekdays and under £80 on weekend nights (Friday and Saturday), and booking in advance will help you more too.
Ibis Preston North
This hotel is part of the budget chain Ibis. It’s located near the M55/M6 junction, so if you plan on going to the nearby seaside resort then it might be a great place to stay.
Lots of people travelling north towards the very northern parts of England will use this type of area to stop off and have a night’s rest. It’s easy to get to and many people on various review sites believe it to be a cheap and value-based stay.
Travelodge Preston Central
This hotel is more towards the centre than the Ibis, being about a 20 to 30-minute walk to or from the train station near Fishergate. Although, if you are coming to Preston by train then it’s probably best to take a taxi as the roads can be quite busy on the way to this hotel.
It sits on the A59 (a long road that goes from Preston over the Yorkshire) and it is fairly close (5-10 minutes in the car) to the M6 motorway.
The Park Hotel
The Park Hotel is on the west side of the city centre and is, again, fairly central. It’s around a 10 to 15-minute walk from the train station in the centre of the city.
It’s situated in a residential area and it’s got the impression of being a B&B, so keep that in mind if you choose this hotel.
There are also comments and reviews from people that the building and interior are quite dated, so if you’re looking for a modern type of stay with all the “mod cons” then really think about whether you want to choose this place.
But, when you get a smaller hotel that is privately owned you usually get the fact that the staff are much more pleasant and care about you as a person.
This Holiday Inn is in the centre of Preston about a 5-minute walk from the train station and fishergate, so it’s the most central of our collection.
But, it is the higher of the lower priced hotels in the city so keep that in mind when looking at it.
Also, the rooms (and the building as a whole) is quite dated. But, on the plus side (as with most Holiday Inns) the buffet breakfast has a nice selection and you’re bound to have a great first meal of the day at this hotel.
Fitness at these hotels
You’re not going to find many budget hotels that offer gym facilities or a health spa inside them, but you will find that we’re only a short drive from where most of them will be. So, you’re more than welcome to come spend some time on your fitness levels: masterspersonaltraining.co.uk/preston
They’re not going to have a swimming pool either, so if this is important to you then you’re probably going to have to increase your budget to a hotel that will have these types of facilities, which could be anywhere from £120 per night and up.
Where should you book them?
In general, booking these cheap hotels in Preston is best on a deals website. The likes of Agoda, Booking.com, Trip Advisor or Expedia etc.
Going directly to the hotel’s website (or the hotel group’s website) probably won’t give you the best value.
