Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 8, 2012

We stayed for a weekend recently and were really pleased that we chose this hotel. Everything was just right - The location was so good for sight seeing, Tower Hill just a short distance for visiting the West End and just around the corner from Brick Lane (Curry Heaven) - The rooms were very pleasant, breakfasts were exceptionally good with a fantastic choice. All the staff were so helpful - sometimes they were so busy but always greeted us with a smile - we will certainly be back

We chose this PI as it was within walking distance to the Olympic Park (albeit 4miles), the staff in all areas were polite and helpful.

The room was large, clean and quiet (although no bath in 411 and as always with most hotels a little on the warm side)

Breakfast was a good choice of self-service hot and cold items

The only downside was the evening menu left a lot to be desired, but with several other eateries to chose from was not too much of an issue.

Room Tip: Ideally situated for Tower Bridge, HMS Belfast

Wanted to show London to our grandsons. The hotel is very good and certainly child friendly. We stayed here before in 2009 and the hotel was this time our first choice because of our experience. The room rate is rather steep due to the Olympics, however that's one's own choice. The hotel's policy regarding wifi is certainly out of date. Free access for 30 minutes and then a fee of £ 3 for the remainder of the day is something I don't want to pay considering the room rate.
The location is perfect, the underground station (Circle and District line) is nearby and to see the sights you have very little change overs.

We stayed in the hotel for two nights whilst attending Olympic events as a family with a one year old child. The room provided everything we needed for a comfortable haven after very long and tiring days and the cafe facility in reception was very welcome. We had breakfast and dinner in the hotel on both days of our stay and the staff provided an exceptional level of customer service to us as we struggled to entertain and feed our little boy who doesn't like sitting still at the best of times! I really cannot think of anything else they could have done to make our life easier. The reception staff were also fantastic. The location of the hotel was excellent, a few minutes walk from the tube station. The room had good blackout curtains which was essential for us trying to get our little boy to sleep before dark and there was no outside noise at all. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel.

We stayed here when we came for the Olympic Opening Ceremony. The hotel is very convenient for the DLR London Gateway station; change at Poplar for the stadium at Stratford.

The reception staff were all very friendly. Don't miss getting a hug from the lovely Rose when you go for breakfast. She's great.

Our room was not huge but it overlooked an internal courtyard and was very quiet. The air conditioning was very efficient and the bed comfortable.

I was looking for a family-friendly, inexpensive hotel for a short break in London we decided to take at the very last moment. I expected Premier Inn to be an anonymous and boring hotel, and it was a pleasant surprise that my expectations were totally wrong!
We had a quadruple room that was very big and immaculate. The furniture was basic but sturdy. The beds were fantastic: I had the most restful sleeps in months! Staff is very friendly and helpful, and last but not least, the hotel offers a big, all-you-can-eat breakfast with hot and cold food. If you are on a budget, this is the place to go.
