Premier Inn London Kensington (Earl's Court) Hotel
Ranked #204 of 1,072 Hotels in London
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 November 2009

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.

We (2 adults and a baby) stayed in Premier Inn-Kensington for 7 nights in October. We stayed in a family room. The hotel is located not very far from Earls Court tube station which is very convenience for us. Our room overlooked the rail track. So we could see and hear the train. But it did not bother us. There are lots of place to eat and some groceries stores nearby. The room was small but clean. The Staff was friendly. There is a Restaurant in the hotel that serves buffet breakfast. But the line was always long.
The only drawback was we have to wait for a long time for checking in since we paid by cash. It would be faster if we pay by credit card.
We're happy with the hotel.

We booked this hotel as we wanted a hotel close to the museums and one that was value for money and suitable for children (6 year old). We weren't disappointed - the hotel far exceeded our expectations.
From the other reviews I read, I expected it to be noisy - We couldn't hear any trains or any of the other guests, even though the hotel was fairly full.
The room was very clean and a good size for central london with a separate single bed which my daughter said was very comfortable.
The breakfast was excellent - Was around £7 each and free for children. The selection and quality was as good as (if not better) than I have paid more than double for in other hotels.
All staff were very polite and welcoming and went out of the way to help.
All in all a very pleasant overnight stay. I would definitely look into staying in another Premier Inn, especially when travelling as a family.

Stayed at this Premier Inn $ nights in October. Found the staff extremely friendly and helpful, room was very comfortable, and meals were an excellent standard (their sticky toffee pudding is something to die for). Very well located near tube station, and to get to central London on tube is the minimum fare. Will definitely stay there again when visiting London

I managed to book this at £49 a night through a promotion that Premier Inn are running at the moment. For that price, its a bargain in London, but if I had to stay there again I wouldn't pay anything more than about £65 per night.

The location is superb as a few minutes walk to Earl's Court tube station and lots of dining places, all reasonably cheap, around there. Its also a very safe area, and good if you plan to stay out late and walk home late at night.

Its also a reasonable 15-20 minute walk to South Kensington area for the museums and such.

The lobby of the hotel is very nice, having just been redecorated, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The newly opened restaurant and bar looked very cosy and inviting, but we did not dine there so cannot comment on the food. However, they do have a all-you-can-eat breakfast for £7.50, that you can purchase on the spot (no discount for pre-booking).

The rooms are functional, and the air conditioning works very well. We got one of the rooms directly overlooking the train tracks, but there are two sets of thick windows so could not hear ANY train sounds at all! However, the walls are rather thin and you can hear the sound of doors slamming or people talking in the corridor... so you could be unlucky and live on the same floor as a stag party group.

One downside is no internet or wifi in the rooms; only a modem connection.
