“Lovely, Clean Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

I had a fantastic stay in this hotel in September and because of this booked there again for a shopping trip in November. Unfortunately had a few problems when booking in and wasted all day sorting it out and had to move rooms on a few occasions , all this took time and the last move was done inbetween courses while dinning. When we eventually got a room it was spotlessly clean and we were happy with it. We had the meal deal and the service was brilliant.and a special thanks to Anthony who knew (because of the problems with the booking in )we didn't have much time and ensured we were out as quick as possible. The rest of our stay was great and when I booked out I spoke to the manger who was extremely helpful and couldn't apologise enough for the problems encounter on the first day, she also refunded our money for the night too, which definately helped to ease the pain . All in all expect for booking in , we had a lovely stay but I don't know if I would book again purely because of the booking in experience . I'm sure it was a one off but its put me off what otherwise would be a lovely hotel.

Stayed at this hotel last night as our work function was round the corner. Excellent hotel, friendly staff, very very quiet - had a great night's sleep and even better no commute. The one complaint I have is that the bed was very soft and I prefer harder mattresses - but that is just a personal quirk of mine. Hotel could not be faulted and I will stay here again.

A good place to stay when working in the city. The breakfast is excellent with a good choice at the buffet with good quality food. The location cannot be faulted and the rooms are clean and quiet. It also has air-con which not all Premier Inns have. It is round the corner from one of my favourite Indian restaurants (Indian City) and is close to the Thames for walks and runs. Only negative side is that some of the staff are a bit clueless. There was a problem with my booking which my company emailed to sort then the receptionist couldn't find the details and I had to talk to the manager. Dippy receptionists aside, though, this is a good hotel and I will be staying here again next time I am working in London.

Stayed here while the house was redecorated. Chose the hotel because of its transport links, only 400 yds from Black friars and easy to walk to St Paul's. Only opened in mid 2012 the furnishings were as new. Easy and welcoming reception for our internet booking and helpful staff throughout. Eateries abounded within walking distance, although the only night we ate in(too exhausted to venture out on our last night) we were not disappointed at all,OK standard hotel fare but well cooked,presented and served.

This is the fifth Premier Inn we have stayed in now and for a budget chain, they are really very difficult to find fault with. This hotel is in a great location for exploring central London and very close to the Underground and rail station. It was such a quiet hotel, that once inside you would never believe it was in central London. As per usual with Premier Inn the room was comfortable and very clean and the staff were helpful, friendly and courteous.

We stayed here for a long weekend break in December with our 2 children 10 and 14. Quick and friendly check in. The room was a little small with a double and 2 single beds, but was clean, and comfortable. We didn't eat in the restaurant this time, but there was Tesco express right next door-very handy! Great location.
