“Pretty Good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2013

Stayed here on business from Tuesday till Wednesday. I always find with the Premier Inn you know exactly what youre getting which is why I like them .... there's no surprises. Except .... when you book through an agency ! My company books me accommodation with an evening meal 'allowance'. The problem with this is that on this occasion and indeed on the last occasion Premier Inn wouldn't recognise this which meant that I had to pay and then claim it back. All a bit of a faff. However, that said the staff were the usual polite people, the meals good quality and the hotel clean and tidy. So apart from the meal issues I wouldnt hesitate to recommend this to stay for business. WiFi is thrown in for free (30 minutes).

This hotel is convenient with easy parking and a good Beefeater Restaurant next door.
The room facilities were as expected and although the rooms lack the little extra touches such as toiletries, bottled water, mini fridge etc, the low price makes it a good choice for 1 or 2 night stays.

We use Premier Inn a lot and the only complaint has been that the beds always seem hard. This time however we were given a room right by a busy road and the double glazing did not keep out the noise contrary to the hotels claims.

This hotel maintains the usual standard which any usual/former Premier Inn customer will expect.

The rooms are clean and spacious, although the sink in the room is a bit odd, and they don't always drain correctly due to the design. The showers are good and a decent size, and the beds are very comfortable.

I found the staff to be very friendly and welcoming.

In regard to the noise issue to which people refer on here, the rooms overlooking the car park are quieter than those overlooking the road at the back. Having stayed in London on a regular basis, though, the noise levels in the back rooms weren't an issue for me. Granted, you can hear traffic, but the window soundproofing in the rooms is good at blocking the majority of it. The road isn't that busy overnight, anyway. There is also hardly any noise from the corridors or other rooms.

The Thyme restaurant is good quality, but if you tire of that, there's a Pizza Hut next door, a nearby KFC, the Harbour Lights Beefeater over the road and a 24 hr Tesco Extra within a couple of minutes walk, which has doughnut and Costa franchises.

I have returned to this hotel several times and thoroughly recommend it for business use.

Room Tip: Go for a room overlooking the car park if you're bothered by a little road noise.

We would have given this Premier Inn 5 stars but on reflection we felt the room did not match up with the one we stayed in at the Premier Inn in Cobham. However, the shower was superb. We did not like the hand basin being in the room and we would ask for a room away from the road next time.

We believe the staff at this Premier Inn are a real asset; they were all very friendly and welcoming and promptly dealt with the problem we had with the tv handset. It would be helpful to have information in the room on how to contact reception without having to go downstairs. We found out later that there is a phone next to the lifts, but none in the room.

In the morning we were greeted by a very pleasant and helpful young lady in the restaurant where we had a very good quality cooked breakfast, nice and hot, good choice and plenty of it!

We will definitely be back!

Stayed for 2 nights with 2 relations from Australia. We were all very impressed with the most helpful staff, very comfortable rooms, beds and pillows! Breakfast on both mornings was perfectly cooked, hot and plentiful. We had dinner on our second night which was delicious and served by super staff.
Only concern was in finding our way to the Inn especially with another almost next door.

Good car park to arrive into. Receptionist very pleasant and as with all of the staff very helpful. Room was of a good size with comfortable bed. We had a shower room with loo and shower and the hand washing sink outside of the shower room in the bedroom.
We did not eat evening meal in the hotel but had an adequate continental breakfast in the morning - usual questionable quality food!
All in all would we stay again? Yes.
