I always stay here when I am visiting town to see a play at the Globe Theatre. It is in very close proximity to it and other historic sights along the south bank of the Thames. Prices are reasonable though they do go up significantly during the summer months. Still, I'm guessing they are still cheaper than most competitors. The Anchor Pub to which it is attached is a wonderful old relic from the 17th century with loads of atmosphere, a great bar and good food.

I was pleasantly surprised on my first use of this hotel. Having stayed with others in the area, I always felt this was going to be a step down. It is clearly not a full, higher-end choice. However, they delivered well on their offer: Clean room, in good shape, and a nice size. Sufficient TV package. Comfortable bed and pillows, Perfectly good bathroom with good water pressure for the shower. Nice, friendly service staff. Very acceptable breakfast in the adjoining pub (at very affordable price).

There was no fitness room, and the free Wifi only covers 30 minutes a day. And not much in terms of in-bathroom amenities, or morning newspapers. - This is what I mean by being a mid-level choice.

Note: many good restaurants in the area, and great location. Borough Market is fun as a food source as well.

- Well delivered on their promise.

Room Tip: I had a ground-floor level on the back side (room #5), on street-level with pedestrians walking buy...

A good central location, clean and quiet. Very friendly staff. Premier Inns operate to a standard - this was excellent as a Premier Inn, but unfortunately it was a central London mid-week price. I would recommend them as a location. Very helpful and engaged staff. Thank you.

Excellent location for everywhere!..We explored interesting Southwark,sites, walked to the Globe Theatre and easily crossed the river for "big brother London city". Breakfast in the Anchor (and a pint later in the day)was an extra treat. Everyone was helpful, pleasant and welcoming.......I even received a personal birthday card signed by the 'Premier /team'! Looking forward to next year!

This is the second time I've stayed here. The first was about 7 years ago and I wondered if it might look a bit frayed and tired. But it was exactly the same. Great, helpful, friendly staff in a brilliant location literally right next to the Thames and perfect for The Globe Theatre, Tate Modern and the Borough Market, all a stones throw away. Oh and with Wagamama and Nandos just opposite it's perfect for all ages.

This has everything you need in a great location. Frankly, for a weekend city break its very hard to fault. Staff were superb.Very close to Borough market, the George and some good bistros .Of course the Tate Modern is 5 minutes away too !!

Room Tip: third floor view (sort of ) of the river

I've been in Southwark for 5 days tourism with the family and this choice was good: at walk distance to Tower Bridge and Tower of London, with plenty of restaurants in the surrounding and easy to access tube (5mins from London Bridge station). Silence was very good considering the position. Room is a typical budget room, with the added value of a good bed and pillow. Service was fine. English breakfast (in the super-cool "The Anchor" pub) is really good. Continental breakfast is of lower level, but acceptable. In case I need a budget stay (and in London you need it, prices are very high) I'll consider again this hotel.
