“Family Short Break”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

We spent two nights at the hotel. On arrival the staff were most helpful. The room was well presented and very comfortable. The promise of a good night's sleep was absolutely correct; all three of us slept well. We had chosen to take the breakfast option and the food was very well prepared and the service efficient and friendly. Our only criticism is the limitation on the Wi Fi. When next we visit we will use the same hotel. It is only a five minute stroll from Holburn Tube Station.

Room Tip: All rooms seem to be good

We got to the hotel about midday Friday and were immediately impressed by how clean and modern the hotel was. I didn't realise it had only been opened a few days. We were greeted by very friendly staff for which nothing seemed too much trouble. They let us put our suitcases in while we went to Buckingham palace and wished us a pleasant day. Arrived back later and check in was quick and hassle free. The room was spacious, clean and modern although The bed was too soft for my liking and very high - my 7 year old had to literally jump to get onto it! Breakfast was lovely and great that kids eat free. Lots of choice and all hot - no hot chocolate though much to my daughters disappointment (unless she overlooked it). Check out at 12 which was lovely no rushing! As we were seeing a matinee of Matilda, at check out we asked again if we could leave our cases which we could. So much easier than having to drag them around London.

We are back in London again in December and I think will book this hotel again rather than just coming up for the day as really central and so easy with everything you need.

Oh just 1 thing we only had 3 towels for 4 people but am sure if you needed another one (my children just shared) the staff are so accommodating you'll have no problem.
Thank you for a hassle free stay. :)

Only opened the day before we arrived so a brand new hotel how lovely. We stayed for three nights. The reception staff were very friendly and very helpful. The dining room staff were very friendly and efficient. The breakfast was great but the only fault I could find was the mushrooms were cold . We had a triple room and the only fault was not enough storage , six hangers and one drawer between three of us we had to leave some of our clothes in suitcases. There did seem to be a problem with the housekeeping on the second day of our stay and we had dirty cups left in our room and cushions and bed throw put in corner not on bed. However the cups were changed immediately after I asked and the staff could not have been more helpful. Bound to be a few hiccups with a brand new hotel but overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would stay again.

Have just stayed here for 3 nights. We arrived on the opening day, and were met in the hotel reception by a lot of staff. They were having some issues with the check in system, but tried their best to resolve it. The hotel is modern and nicely decorated, and, being 2 female guests, we liked that you needed to swipe your room key to enter the lifts and the floors as it felt very secure.

We had booked a twin room and were on the third floor, the room was big and airy but I think it was meant to be a family room, as there were 2 single beds and a double. (The double bed was very tall, my 4"9 mum struggled to climb in!) They were really comfy! The windows don't open, but there is air con in the room so you can adjust the temperature. Our room was very soundproof, we couldn't hear any street noise, or noise from other rooms or the corridor.

Breakfast was definitely one of the highlights, it's lovely having so much choice when it comes to choosing which tea/cereal/type of eggs to have. There was also a selection of dried fruit and nuts available to sprinkle on your yoghurt/cereal which I liked.

We like staying in Premier Inns as we know what to expect from them, but this one was the best we've stayed in. We couldn't fault the staff, every single one was friendly and eager to help where they could. The few problems we encountered were minor teething problems, and we would definitely stay here again.

Brilliant stay at this brand new premier inn at red lion street near holborn. Fantastic greeting from reception must say a big thank you to Dean who went above and beyond to help me. Very clean room with an excellent bed really comfy. Tried the meal deal for 22.99 really good value for money breakfast was great overall really impressed have stayed in 5 star hotels before and have not received the same level of customer service right on top of west end of london. Stones throw from all the tourist attractions.
