“Great place to stay when visiting London!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2011

You just can't beat a Premier Inn for knowing what you are going to get! Clean hotel, good food, friendly staff, good nights sleep etc etc!. This hotel does not have a car park but really not a problem as less than 5 minutes walk from the tube. Very convenient for visiting the museums etc in London. The weekend we stayed was Champions League weekend so the Saturday night price was a little inflated but I guess no different than what all of the other hotels were charging. Will certainly be staying here again!

Stayed here with a friend in order to 'do' London for the weekend. Went to Chelsea Flower show and a couple of shows. We chose well the staff here are great, restaurant and bar v nice if you want them. Very quiet, no traffic noise. A short walk from Earls Court Tube Station - which is easy from Heathrow. Plenty of shops next to Earls Court station, M&S food, Co-op, Greggs, sainsbury's. A pub on the corner, a Zizzi's restaurant etc. Nice enough area felt quiet and safe! A taxi from hotel to Heathrow on Sunday morning at 5am (tube not available until after 7am!) was £35 and very worthwhile - hotel booked it for me.

Excellent hotel with exceptionally friendly staff, they made our 4 year old boy feel very special. We booked the meal deal, 3 course evening meal with a drink and breakfast, all for £22, the food was very good. Tube station is a 5 minute walk away with direct train to the embankment, trains are non stop....

Room Tip: family friendly side to the hotel

Before all, sorry for my horrible English.. I live and work in Italy, so I do not write or speak English very often...

Coming to the topic, I have to say that everything we found was as we expected. I confirm all the positive reviews I had read about this hotel on Tripadvisor sites.

The room was reasonably large, perfectly clean and comfortable, as the bathroom.
All the features indicated at Premier Inn site were available.
I confirm also the very good quality of food and dishes, both at breakfast and at dinner. In my opinion, the quality / price ratio on both was remarkably high.
Also the position of the hotel is fine. You can easily reach it via metro (Earl's court station in at few minutes walking) or bus.

There can only be a little problem about noise, due to the fact that few hotel rooms are quite close to metro rails. But that is an issue related only to some rooms. We experienced this problem, as initially one of this rooms was assigned to us. In my experience, the noise was not so high, anyway as I mentioned it the hotel staff gave us another room and refunded the 1st night stay, so managing this little issue very quickly and effectively.

I have to mention Hotel staff for their attention to every issue a client can have. That is in my opinion the more positive feature to point out.
All the people in the staff have demonstrated to be very kind, skillful and absolutely careful to our possible needs.
Among the others, I remember an Italian waitress that very friendly and patiently explained us a lot of details on English food and other practical topics, very useful for a tourist in London. That could be considered as a not important detail, but my wife and myself have appreciated a lot her kindness.

But I would like to mention in particular miss Laura, at the reception.
Not only she was absolutely kind and helpful with us, but she was also efficient and proactive in anticipating and solving the little problem about noise I indicated before.

All the main features of the hotel were at a good level, but in my opinion miss Laura has made the difference from a very good stay and an extraordinary good one.

fantastic service, lots of good reasonably priced restaurants and other facilities nearby, very close to tube but off a (reasonably) quiet road (for London). Really good breakfast - variety and quality. I'd certainly stay here again
