Just come back from having an excellent weekend break in London with the family. We stayed in the Premier Inn (Olympia) in South Kensington. This is an excellent location for those that don't want to be staying in the centre of London but wish to be able to 'come and go' easily. Simply took the tube (Piccadilly Line) from Kings Cross directly to Earls Court (no changes needed). Hotel is located 5 minutes walk from Earls Court. My mother in Law is in her 80's and she managed it with no problems. The hotel is very clean and each room has TV, shower and drink making facilities. No room service though which some people like to have. The beds are really comfortable and we found the hotels "Shhhsh" policy to work brilliantly. We never heard a thing once we were in our rooms. We also liked the added security that in order to get access to the upper floors you must use your room key card to use the lifts. We found the staff to be excellent. They cannot do enough for you and they actually seem to enjoy their jobs. Breakfasts are also excellent. £9.75 for an all you can eat breakfast. Cereals, toast, full English excellently cooked, croissants, muffins and of course COSTA coffee. Great value for money. There is also a nice relaxing bar. Drinks priced very reasonably. My only criticism of this stay was with the evening meal we had on our first night. Sat down at 7pm and it took an hour to get each course served. We were still eating at 10pm. In view of this we did not have any further evening meals in the Hotel and I have to award 4 out of 5 for service . This may have be a 'one off'. Apart from this, we found the hotel and staff to be great. We will definitely use this hotel again and I certainly recommend it.
