Rainham Premier Inn Climbdown? Will it now get a proper name?

Have Premier Inn had a change of heart over the name of the new Premier Inn hotel in Rainham?

The hoardings outside the building work had proudly announced that the new Gillingham East A2 Premier Inn would be opening shortly. This caused a lot of local anger as the hotel is in the centre of Rainham and would undoubtedly cause massive confusion for guests that didn't know the area and travelling to Gillingham expecting to be able to stay at the Premier Inn.

This evening we noticed that the sign stating Gillingham East has now been covered over with only A2 still visible. So will the new Premier Inn be known as Rainham A2 recording its actual location? We wait and see!!

It is just called Rainham premier inn I think. Would be silly if they named it Gillingham East A2!
