I regularly stay in a Premier Inn and rarely do you get poor service; mostly its above average and the staff take good care of you. On arriving at the Watford Central Premier Inn there was a queue (on a hot day and having just finished work) not a good start. However the receptionist Sussaine (I later learnt is a... More

Loved the location of this hotel. Which both was lovely. Our problem which I hate to say is the receptionist. She was a lady working on her own. So myself hubby and granddaughter were staying one night. To be able to take grandie to see Harry potter studios the next day. Then other peeps were check-in in.it just seemed she... More

Stayed here during a weekend visit for a late night party. The rooms were a good size with a modernised bathroom and facilities. Although there was no air-con, the room had a good fan and a sheet had been left for the bed, to replace the duvet - very welcome! A great, freshly cooked breakfast in the morning rounded off...

I stayed here with a friend to visit the Harry Potter studio. The hotel is very conveniently located and parking isn't too bad at £3 per night, although really I think it should be free. The Harry Potter studio is around 10-15 minutes drive away and the Intu shopping centre is less than 10 minutes' walk away, handy! When we... More

We stayed at this hotel On July 16th. The hotel is below Premier inn standard. The worst thing was the non functioning AC. When we arrived, we saw that they had put a floor fan in the room, as well as extra sheets. Later I discovered why, the AC did not work, and the hotel itself gets extremely hot. We... More

I had a great stay, Staff was friendly and the food was good. My room was clean and comfortable. Would stay again and probably will be. The location was easy to get to and more important for me easy to operate from. And the happy hour was a nice change 2 for 1 which saved me money.

Short and sweet - if you've stayed at one Premier Inn, you've stayed at them all. Rooms are standard rooms, evening restaurant is the standard Thyme restaurant, and breakfast is their 'help yourself' continental with cooked food to order. The one criticism - the rooms only have heating, not air con. When you first enter the rooms with open windows... More

We booked 2 rooms over the weekend as a base to visit London and Harry Potter. Checkin was great, mainly down to the receptionist (chap with glasses) who was very friendly. Breakfast opens at 7am and is the usual, I love the fact it was a cooked to order hot breakfast rather than buffet as I like my bacon crispy... More
