“Excellent Location, Excellent Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014

I stay over in London on a regular basis but never usually around the King's Cross area however as I needed to catch an early train I booked into the Premier Inn as it is literally 3 minutes walk to the departure hall. I left my booking late, just a day before, and paid £180.00 which whilst for London is not expensive, it did seem a lot for a Premier Inn. I arrived before the 1400 check-in but was made to feel very welcome on arrival and the guy on the front desk went out of his way to find me a vacant room, even calling housekeeping on his radio. The room was exactly how you expect a Premier Inn room to be, clean, well laid out and somehow 'familiar'. Food in the restaurant was not the best Ive had but was hot, well cooked and presented - a little larger portion would have been nice but was excellent value at £23 for a 2 course dinner, a glass of wine and breakfast. Check out was very quick with my invoice e-mailed. I would certainly stay again albeit would try to book earlier to bring the room rate down.

Room Tip: Ask to stay in the inner rooms away from Grays Road side of the hotel

Dear JUSTINATKIN,

Thank you for your review; we're pleased to see that you enjoyed your time with us. Whilst we do always strive to offer the greatest value for money possible, for the best prices we would always advise potential customers to book through Premier Inn's website. As the review points out, those wanting a complete package may also care to book our meal deal - which provides two courses and a drink in our evening restaurant, followed by breakfast the following morning, and all for £22.99.

Best wishes,
Nick, Reception

Me and my sister stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. We both loved the warm-welcoming of every staff member. If a new (or current) business owner wants to know how to give an excellent customer service then they should spend a day here. There were no problems with the room at all.

Breakfast was £10 each (which we got for both mornings) however it was worth it.

I can't say describe how everything was perfect. We managed to get a perfect night sleep. I didn't believe the advert for insulated rooms in the hotels (the advert said "Our rooms are insulated for you to have a perfect night") however this trip did prove me wrong.

Room Tip: We chose a room behind the lift and it was perfect for a night sleep.

Dear Luke N,

Thank you for your wonderful review; we're so happy that we were able to provide you with a perfect stay. The claims may indeed sound fantastic, but we genuinely believe (and prove to our hundreds of guests every day) that you can have a restful nights' sleep in the heart of London! Whilst all of our rooms are well-insulated against external noise, we are more than happy to allocate guests to our especially-quiet rear courtyard rooms upon request.

Best wishes,
Nick, Reception

A lovely premier inn hotel with the politest and most welcoming staff I have ever met in any establishment. A special thank you to Moses who found me scissors when I broke a nail and gave us extra tea bags and milk late at night.
The central location of this hotel is superb. We needed to get to several parts of London over two days and this hotel is ideal for trains and underground. It is however the attentiveness of the staff that would make me return. Thank you.

This premier inn has all the usual advantages of a well appointed budget hotel, conveniently close to Kings Cross and St. Pancreas stations. Unfortunately at the rear of the hotel there is a Tesco store which receives lorry deliveries throughout the night hours. If you are sensitive to vehicle reversing signals, the crash and clatter of supermarket delivery cages with an overlay of loud working conversations, while you trying to sleep, this place may not be for you.

My friend and I stayed here for one night, but we would have stayed longer if we could. It was very comfortable, the staff were lovely, and the food was fantastic! The breakfast far exceeded our expectations. Definitely recommended.

Stayed here as it's so local to the tube. We didn't spend much time here but when we did, we slept well. Breakfast was good too. Staff helpful and the new check in system is so much better.
It's pricey but it's London so you expect her would stay again.

Dear Oneillbex,

Thank you so much for your comments. We've always thought that we're one of the best, so it's nice to feel validated by such a kind guest.

For the curious, the reviewer may be referring to our Quick and Easy Check In process. Visitors who have paid in advance for their reservations may proceed to one of the several terminals spaced around our reception area; and, rather than having to follow a lengthy booking process, need only enter either name or credit card details in order to be immediately issued with a room key.

Best wishes,
Nick, Reception

Wonderfully helpful and cheerful staff, comfortable room, excellent breakfast and great position for King's Cross and St.Pancras International at a reasonable price. Able to leave luggage for day while we visited British Museum and Covent Garden - nothing was too much trouble. What's not to like?
