Only just decided to review this as I have been unsure if I should or not we were mistakenly taken to this Hotel by our taxi driver on a previous stay at the Tate Modern Premier Inn in December 2012 we noticed the beautiful outdoor seating area overlooking the Thames and we loved that straight away so after a brief discussion and realising how close it was to all the attractions My Husband and I decided that we would book this Premier Inn when we returned to London for our wedding anniversary in August 2013.
So with this in mind we made a booking for the 27th August and arrived early in the morning from the start the Staff were excellent they looked after our cases while we explored London until our room was available, The room like all premier Inn rooms was very clean and light and the Beds were very very comfortable the location was perfect as you expect from a premier so far so good.
All was going really well until we returned in the evening and changed to go and sit on that lovely outdoor area we were there about 9:15 on a lovely summers evening but as we asked the barman for drinks he explained that the Patio was closing in 5 minutes and we would have to go inside frankly we were beyond disappointed that area was our biggest reason for booking the borough Market, regardless we went inside the pub and found a nice quiet corner to sit and drink and 10 minutes later we were told again told that the lower art of the bar was closing and we would have to move at that point we left the bar walked along the Thames and had a drink outside at a Giraffe restaurant instead.
Now don't get me wrong everything else about the Borough market Premier Inn was great the staff were fantastic the room was great the location is brilliant and we would absolutely stay there again but it was that outdoor area that attracted us in the first place and the idea of sitting out there with a glass of wine and some nibbles watching the Thames go by really sold us and it was a massive disappointment that it closed when it did , regardless of that Breakfast there was very good and the staff in the pub are also nice and friendly and we would absolutly stay there again.
