Because the torrent of abuse and nonsense that the arrival of a Premier Inn generates on this forum was hilarious. Q rightly wonders what everyone feels now that it is a) passable looking, b) obviously hugely successful and c) appears not to have killed all the b and bs in Town and has not parking totally impossible. It killed the appalling Crown and may yet do for The White Hart, but that may be no bad thing as both establishments do nothing for the reputation of the Town for accommodation. The arrival of new all day bars and restaurants may well have a more detrimental effect on several of the smaller independent cafes in Town.

Another corporation paying minimum wage to the minions while the board get fat...
On the plus side though they did pay some corporation tax even if it was a paltry 15mil on 377mil of profit.

@Deja Vu. A job is a job, to put on a c.v., for gaining experience and subsequently giving more likelihood of a better job either with the same company or with another company. Even on minimum wage, far better than no job and no experience. We need local jobs.

You don't know that and if you factor it down to how much of that contribution was paid by the Lewes hotel I seriously doubt it was more than most Lewes independants, 377 was the group as a whole including whitbread and costa sales. Less than 5% is pretty pathetic, hmrc at their finest...

Well I wish they would open up tix for bonfire night instead of squirrelling them away for their mates...

@SHS. A full time job that you can't afford to live on is tax payers subsidising business operations through benefits.

That aside, good for lewes and fits in nicely imo. At least Aqua gives everyone something to debate on here

Went into Lewes on Saturday night. Friars walk car park was completely full with cars driving around looking for a space. I've never seen this happen in the evening in 20 years. I leave you to decide.
