We stayed here with our 13 year old son for 4 nights Wednesday - Sunday of half-term week in October.
Room and beds comfortable - exactly as described. The temperature was fine - I usually suffer in Premier Inn type hotels with being too hot, but this time it was fine. Maid service was lacking. We ran out of toilet rolls and I had to ring for more. I am not sure if the maid missed our room out one day. Replenishing the milk for the tea tray happened after 5 pm on a couple of days and again we ran out of things for this. On Sunday we awoke to pouring rain, and rain started to drip through our window frame on to the carpet.
Staff very friendly and enthusiastic on reception.
The hotel was fully booked during this week and breakfast was incredibly busy. If you went down after 8.45 am, you would have to wait for a table with lengthy queues forming just to be seated.
Mugs, jugs and teapots were in short supply and one day I had to wait 15 minutes for a mug to have a cup of tea, which in my view is not good enough. The variety of food on offer was excellent and couldn't be bettered really. Hot breakfast items were well cooked and of a good standard. Good value for money with kids eating free, pity about the wait for utensils though.
Noise - if you have a room on the other side of the road across the bridge, you are away from the railway line. We didn't experience any noise at all where we were on Floor 5, over the bridge.
A good location, a couple of minute's walk to the tube station and plenty of restaurants to eat at in the locality. We ate at "The Real Greek" - a very nice meal, one of the most authentic Greek places outside Greece and also at "The Little French restaurant" who do a set menu for £9.95. Again very good.
All in all a great place to stay for London. I wouldn't stay in a Premier Inn outside of a city break or airport stop over, but it certainly suited our purpose for a busy few days visiting London. Very good value for money, with the room being slightly bigger than a boutique hotel we stayed at for twice the room rate.
