Just arrived back from a 3 night stay in the Easter hols with husband, 3 year old and 5 year old. This was our first family trip to London but after some extensive researching we were very happy with stayng at this hotel. It is in a brilliant location we felt safe, even at night and the short walk from Earl's Court tube station made it a great base for sight seeing. We stayed here specifically as we wanted to visit the Natural History Museum which was approx 15 min walk with youngest in a pushchair. We also visited Regent St (Hamley's), Rainforest Cafe, M&M's shop, Trafalgar Sq, Westminster, London Eye, Big Ben and the Sealife Aquarium. We loved the food on offer for breakfast and found a 24hr Tesco just down the road aswell as a Pizza Express, Zizzi Italian (well recommended)! and a lovely park called Holland Park just around the corner off Kensington High St. The staff in the hotel were very friendly and gave us a London Street Map on arrival which we used all the time. The family room, no.120 was perfect for us we had enough room with 2 single beds and a double. Would definitely recommend this hotel to any family wanting a city break to London.

Room Tip: 120 was on the first floor to the rear of the building a short walk from the lift. It was very quiet...

I can't fault Premier Inn, the large comfortable beds and the breakfast are excellent value for money. My wife can't fault them either, being in the trade as it were she spent a good 5 minutes checking everywhere for dust or faults and couldn't find any. Although this led to a discussion that the rooms are well designed to speed/ease cleaning. Either way, I honestly don't think you can waste money on spending a night at a premier inn.

As for the local area, I hadn't given West London much of a chance before really, but the convenience of the hotel to Earls Court was ideal for the ideal home exhibition we were visiting and realising that the Science, Natural History and V&A museums are a short walk (-ish, I have long legs ;) down the road, might lead to a return visit and me reassessing West London.

Point is, you won't be disappointed staying here. If the road outside does bother you? Well Premier Inn has a good night guarantee so they'll move you or refund you.

I stayed here for one night over easter. Hotel is in a great location, around a 5-10 minute walk from Earl's Court tube station. If you are feeling energetic you can walk to the Thames in 20 minutes. Our room in the basement was very spacious and clean and couldn't fault the breakfast in the morning. Staff were friendly and helpful. Would definately stay here again and would highly recommend

We were concerned about road noise as this hotel is on West Cromwell Road, but our room was quiet, clean and very comfortable. We were able to check in early which meant we didn't have to carry our small suitcase around London and, when we checked out the following morning, we could leave it safe and secure at the hotel until we popped back to collect it at 6pm on our way home. The evening dinner and full breakfast package was well worth the money and meant we didn't have to venture out into the cold after returning from Earl's Court and having a lovely soak in the bath before dinner. There was plenty of choice on the menu and we were very pleased to be able to eat in the hotel and go straight up to bed to watch some TV prior to a really comfortable night's sleep! This hotel is very close to Earl's Court tube station and within easy walking distance of both the Natural History Museum and the V&A.

Room Tip: We had room 32 which was quiet. We did not mind about not having a view. Peace and quiet were our tw...

We were going to be in London for 7 nights and wanted a hotel somewhere fairly central at a reasonable price. This hotel came up with reasonably good reviews so we went ahead and booked. We were traveling with 2 adults and 2 kids so we booked a family room.

When we arrived we were given a room on the front of the building on the ground floor. Having read numerous reviews about the road noise I asked about getting a room at the back of the hotel. They were full the first night but would move us the next day for the remainder of our stay. Well the noise was pretty bad from Cromwell road and we pretty much had a rough nights sleep. The next morning we went to ask about moving because we had the worst nights sleep and they moved us straight away and refunded us for the first night.

The second room was on the 3rd floor at the back of the building. This room was awesome and nice and quiet with a view of the garden. We enjoyed our next 6 nights at this hotel.

We ate in the restaurant a couple of nights and the food was really very good and value for money. Our server was Katie and she was absolutely fantastic and made the evenings a lot of fun.

All the staff at tthe hotel were friendly and really made the extra effort to make your stay enjoyable.

As long as I did not have a room on the basement or ground floor at the front of the building I would recomend this hotel. Perhaps they should make these rooms a slightly different rate so you can know that you are not going to be staying in one of these rooms unless you choose to book them.

Room Tip: Ask to have a room on the back of the building.

We spent three nights in the hotel and were very happy. The staff at reception and breakfast were incredibly friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and perfect for our needs (family of four). It was a little cold on arrival, but we could turn up the temperature as required. Nice location, not far from Earls Court tube station, so near restaurants and shops, too. Breakfast was a good deal, since the kids ate for free.

This is the second time me and my husband have stayed at a Premier Inn (First at Premier Inn- Euston), we were not disappointed. Booked online no problems. Choose this hotel as it was close to the museums, checked the location on Google maps and was easy to locate from Earls Court tube station. We arrived at 1pm (Check in states check in after 2pm) and we were lucky enough that our room was ready. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Room was located at the back of the hotel, so no problem with noise. Room was very clean. After being out the rest of the day we decided we would just eat at the hotel, it was quiet so got a table easily. i had duck parcels to start and my husband had breaded mushrooms what can i say excellent, they were delicious. I had a burger as my main meal, my husband had steak. Our waiter was Sammi, he was very tentative, and kept checking that everything with our meal was okay, again very friendly and helpful. I cannot fault the staff at all, they asked how our day was, asked what and where we had been. We also had breakfast which was also to an excellent standard, good choice of cereals, and cooked breakfast was very good. As i said this was our second visit to Premier and could not fault it and will definitely stay again. Thanks to all the staff
