“Great location for Shakespeare's Globe & the South Bank”
Reviewed 21 August 2009

We chose this hotel because it was close to the Globe Theatre. We found the walk from the tube OK with weekend-size bags. Choose your route carefully - a scenic detour takes you past Southwark Cathedral & the Golden Hind!

The area beside the river is an attraction in its own right. It was packed with people when we were there, including Russell Brand doing some filming outside the Anchor Inn (where you can get Premier Inn breakfast: £15 for 2 adults and 2 children & pretty good).

Staff at the Premier Inn were friendly & welcoming. We were 1hr early for check-in but they found us an alternative family room without any hassle. We were also able to leave bags on checkout to allow us extra time to wander before heading home.

Loads of attractions within walking distance as well as bars, restaurants, etc. (Would recommend booking even at Pizza Express and The Real Greek if you have tickets for the theatre).

A big thumbs-up from us!

My boyfriend and I loved this hotel. From the clean, crisp bedding to the heated towel rail and buffet breakfast the Premier Inn at Tower Bridge had everything we needed. Our room was of a good size, with large, comfortable beds. The bathroom was also lovely, with a bath/shower facility. The television with freeview was nice to settle down to at the end of the day. The buffet breakfast was good, with plenty of choice to suit different tastes. The reception staff were friendly and checking in / out was simple and not at all lengthy. The hotel is a bit of a walk from the nearest tube station, but this isn't at all a problem, as one expects to do a considerable amount of walking when in London anyway. The walk from the tube station London Bridge to the hotel is interesting, as you pass the London Dungeons, and a war Museum. From the station you can also see the Gherkin building. Opposite the hotel there is a handy costcutter shop, should you need anything during your stay. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone.

I don't understand all the complaints about the 10 min walk from the nearest tube. It's hardly a trek is it? If you,ve come to explore London then you'll probably be walking around most of the day sightseeing so an extra 10 mins is not worth moaning about. It clearly states this distance in the online information about this hotel anyway.
My family (hubby, 5yr and 10 yr old boys) thought that this was a really clean comfortable hotel. The bed was really comfortable, our shower was good, the black-out curtains and triple glazing worked (considering we were facing a fairly busy road) and the staff were really helpful and friendly (especially Dean who offered to help us when he spotted us trying to work out our next destination on the tube map!). There was a really good selection on the help yourself, all you can eat, breakfast, which set us up for the day.

This hotel was a lovely retreat from our busy, tiring , but thoroughly enjoyable stay in London . Well done Premier Inn!

For our holiday of 5 nights in London in August 2008, we chose this hotel for its location next to Tower Bridge.
I have to say that the hotel is not convenient to the tube. The two nearest stops are at London Bridge railway station and on the other side of the Thames near the Tower of London. Both require a walk of 10-15 minutes to be reached. But there is a bus which stops just outside the hotel which allows you to go to city center or, after a few stops, to the Elephant & Castle junction.
Apart from this, which we already knew having read the map before booking, we are completely satisfied with this hotel.
A large room very clean and comfortable, excellent breakfast and... 'eat as much as you like'... and our children have had the free breakfast as well!
The members of the staff were professional, but very friendly and we also had the good luck of finding a pretty Italian girl among them.
And the price is really budget for this area of London!

Apparently made an online booking with this hotel. I was never sent a conformation; neither by email, mail, fax etc, so unaware of the booking and went to another hotel instead.
They contacted me at 3am on the (weekday) morning of my apparent booking to ask if I would be checking in - I didn't think it was reasonable to wake someone at that hour!
I was charged for this night, and despite several attempts to contact Premier Inn to make these complaints again they have never once contacted me to respond.
Obviously a rort - they make bookings which they never confim, then charge you for it, and refuse to respond when you complain!

Excellent price, sparkingly clean with big comfortable beds and spacious rooms. Friendly, helpful staff and an good location near to the vibrant South Bank. This chain has to be one of London's bargains. SO much better than their close "competitor"

This hotel is a little futher from the tube than the website implies - but still a good location - just a little more of a walk with a lot of luggage than we originally envisaged! Location is brilliant for the Tower of London though.

If you have ever stayed in a premier inn than you know what you are going to get - the rooms are a good size for London, clean and comfortable. There is also a good shop accross the Rd where you can get bottles of wine and snacks etc.
