We wanted a hotel near to my Mums, in the centre of London for a Mother's Day visit. A little time since we last tried Premier Inn but the recent adverts convinced us to try. We are very pleased that we did. Everything about this 'budget' hotel stay was as we would expect or exceeded our expectations.
Booked easily on their website; clean and smart room; bathroom was typical but very well presented and fabulous shower etc; TV with Freeview channels; air con was responsive to the control; terrific view over the City; staff happy to help and they smiled; breakfast (all you can eat) was very very good and all the foods you would want from a European selection; check-in and out was easy.
This hotel is new, opened November 2011 so everything is still fresh.
If i have to give some criticism it would be about parking. No hotel parking, just a few spaces down the road that you need to buy a permit for every 4 hrs from 8.30 - 6pm. There's an NCP park 15mins walk away for which they give you a voucher. But this is the centre of London and so this does not really figure in our assessment of the hotel.
We were genuinely convinced that Premier Inn is now providing a value-for-money (upper) budget hotel service that is not just a marketing exercise. We will only consider Premier Inn in future (my Mother may even see more of us!).
