I Have stayed here a few times over the last two years. It is a very good no frills hotel where the staff are always friendly and welcoming. The double beds are large and there is always plenty of hot water in the bathroom with good powerful showers. The hotel provides soap and shower gel/shampoo, which is good, but the dispensers can be a bit fiddly and often it is easier to take the soap bottle out of the dispenser and squeeze it yourself.
Premier Inn is following a ‘green agenda’ and consequently you only get one hand towel along with two bath towels instead of the usual two. In the summer time the rooms can be very hot and as there is no air con the hotel provides electric fans, which help a bit, but you can’t keep them running all night as they are noisy – and I guess doesn’t do much for the green agenda! Because of safety/security the windows only open a few inches.
They pay attention to comfort and there are notices asking people to think about other guests’ needs and close doors quietly. If you get the choice, upstairs rooms are quieter (in downstairs rooms you can hear people treading the floorboards upstairs). Premier Inn has a ‘goodnight guarantee’ so if you are not satisfied they will refund the cost of the night. This guarantee is honoured, but it’s up to the customer to ask for it. Unfortunately, during one stay my room wasn’t serviced and when I returned at night there was only the receptionist on and whilst she offered to do my room, she had had a queue of guests checking in and I couldn’t wait as I was going out, so the receptionist gave me the towels, bin liners etc. and I did the room myself. Next morning I had to ask for the guarantee to be honoured, which it was, without further question. It was a shame it happened, but I guess even in the best of places the wheels do come off every now and then and if they keep the costs down by running on skeleton staff, then that’s the price we have to pay. It hasn’t stopped me using this place.
I have had a couple of breakfasts in the Young Pretender next door, but they weren’t brilliant and I prefer to walk up the road to the deli (Dallings) or the butchers. Evening meals are OK serving usual chain type pub grub, but there is a lot of choice of places to eat in Kings Langley, which I prefer.
The Premier Inn is handy if you want to go into London, with direct rail connections to Euston (25 mins). Staying here and using an off peak family railcard from Kings Langley can be more economical than staying in central London. Wembley stadium is also easy to get to by train from here.
