“Great place for hopping into London.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

After getting a great deal at the Hampton by Hilton in Croydon in the Summer, I decided to look at staying in Croydon again for New Year. It was a great base for visiting London, and a nice hotel is much more affordable than staying closer to the city. I found a £29 per night deal (inc New Year's Eve!) at the Premier Inn and I have to say, it compared very well to the Hampton. The hotel is situated off the main road coming out of the station, and the recently opened entrance to platforms means it is even closer if you don't need to buy a ticket, as it is literally just over the road from the hotel. East Croydon is in Zone 5 which is around £8.90 for a daily travel card, and trains were every 5 mins for the 15 minutes journey to Victoria.
The rooms were very spacious with heating/aircon units. The bed was super comfortable and my son said his single bed was good too. The rooms were cleaned each day with top ups of tea/coffee etc and all staff I met were very friendly....even allowing me to print off my boarding pass as I could only check in on New Year's Day.
I thoroughly recommend this Premier Inn and Croydon if you are wanting pleasant, modern facilities and excellent service...especially if you book early enough for the best deal!

I've stayed at this Premier Inn a couple of times now. Every stay has been enjoyable and problem free.

The rooms themselves have many nice features - air conditioning, modern bathroom fittings, comfortable beds (so far!), spotlights on the ceiling (something I have never seen in a Premier Inn before - they are a huge improvement on the usual dull, circular ceiling lights), seemingly excellent sound insulation and superb cleanliness all round. Signal for mobiles is also consistently strong, which is useful if you wish to use your smartphone's mobile internet capabilities. (Wi-Fi is also available - it works fine and is £3/day which is very reasonable).

The staff are helpful and friendly, without being over the top (I find that in some hotels, but particularly restaurants, the staff can be a little 'too' friendly).

Croydon isn't the nicest part of London, but the hotel's location within Croydon is excellent. The recently opened footbridge at the rear of East Croydon station means it is possible to get from the front of the hotel to a platform within 1 minute (if you run) or about 3 minutes (if you walk), with trains every couple of minutes to London Victoria and London Bridge, both of which take about 15 minutes.

Just to the west of the hotel is a subway leading to a large shopping centre that has just about every major shop I know of. It also has a Sainsbury's supermarket. I can't say a subway is the nicest way to enter a shopping centre, but that is the fault of Croydon Council, not Premier Inn, and I believe Croydon Council are planning to replace the subway with a more attractive above ground crossing.

I cannot comment on breakfast or dinner as I have not used the restaurant facilities at this hotel.

Overall, considering the quality of this hotel, the room rates (£29 - £49 a night on average) and its proximity to East Croydon station (with the ability to be in central London within 15-20 minutes), this particular branch of Premier Inn can be assured of my continued custom!

We stayed here with friends as a belated birthday treat. A treat was what it was! Lovely welcoming staff, spotless rooms, superb breakfast and friendly atmosphere. We used the hotel as a base for going up to London and it's location 5 mins walk (literally) from East Croydon station was ideal, as it is a 15 min trip by train to Victoria. We would highly recommend the hotel especially as we got a £29 a night deal as well!!

Excellent value. Affordable, but very clean and new hotel. Simple and modern. Great location in Croydon, with the new walkway to the train station it is just a few minutes walk, with trains going into London every 10 minutes or so.

We stayed here on new years eve to go into London on 31st Dec and go to a football match on New Years Day. Reception staff were very helpful regarding travel arrangements for both outings and even printed out directions from Croydon to Selhurst Park. Parking in the nearby NCP is discounted for hotel guests. Excellent that catering staff catered for later breakfasts on 1st Jan from 8am until 1pm.

We stayed 26 to 30 Dec. Very busy time of year and not enough staff on shift. Very clean hotel. 5 mins walk to train station. 30 mins from gatwick airport and 30 mins from london. Good location. Hotel is safe and secure. Would consider staying again if in london.

Booked and stayed here for 3 weeks. Must say the reception staff were top notch. The breakfast was excellent and staff very helpful with a nice exchange of banter for me and my staff .
On our first night stay, I did mention my bed did squeak! So bad night but on return that evening the staff had changed the bed and then we had a great nights sleep.
Very high standard here and would gladly recommend this premier inn to anyone.
Thanks again.
