Stayed here for both NFL games at Wembley last year and this was the perfect base for this. 2 underground stops are within 10/15 minutes walk from the hotel or 5 minute by car. The Underground stop at Croxley Green has a small car park that is particularly cheap to park your car at on a Sunday. After both games at Wembley getting the underground back from the stadium to Watford was a breeze and topped off two great nights.The Premier Inn map on their website shows a train stop right next to the hotel but this is closed and the underground is the closest option to get to London/Wembley. We stayed for 3 nights on our first trip and 2 night on our second trip. The rooms are typical Premier Inn and are clean and well presented. The car park is a good size and the staff were all pleasant. The only downside to this Premier Inn is the awful Brewers Fayre that is attached to it. The first time we visited we decided to try the restaurant as the Chicken buffet night sounded good. The service was dreadful and the buffet was almost never replenished properly in the over one hour we were in the restaurant, at least 2 customers who were in the restaurant for the same buffet asked for refunds due to the service and lack of food on the buffet, wish I had done the same but as I didnt know the area well a didnt know where else to go.We stupidly gave the restaurant a second try on our second visit to the hotel after a long day in London but tried the normal menu rather than the buffet, the service again was terrible and the food awful. We even got overcharged for our food which was refunded but grudgingly!! My rating of the property is purely for the hotel and not the restaurant as this is a zero rating!!
There is a good small convenience store around the corner from the hotel which was handy for grabbing snacks/juice and alcohol. Overall a perfect place too stay for an NFL weekend in London especially at the price we paid compared to a Central London hotel. If your trip is purely for central London it is maybe a long journey to take on the Underground everyday but if you dont mind the journey it is easy and takes about an hour and only one change.
