Premier Inn London Southwark - Borough Market
Travel Blogs from London
Long story short, I added this London stopover to the trip thinking I wasn't going to Sundance in Park City this past January. BUT, as my good fortune allowed, I was accepted as a volunteer at Park City (thank you Grace!), so, I get to experience both this year. Truly a miracle.
It started off with a bang.
The Look of Love, a true …
So today it was July 1 st and being away from home on Canada Day is odd. So to celebrate I put on my Canada flag Olympic tshirt and we headed off to church. I don't have much hope that the Olympics will run smoothly as two different tube lines were down today. The most convenient the Jubilee not in operation today.oh well. We got where we needed to …
CPH Airport 18.20 to Heathrow
We have just completed another day of sightseeing. You certainly need to be fit to be a tourist in London. We both climbed the 330 stairs of the Monument, and the 600 odd stairs of St Pauls Catherderal. Both offered a rewarding view. The main tourist attractions have been worth the effort.
Today we also visited the Natural History Museum and …
Just Dinner and back home !
How has this hotel rated in the past?
I specifically wanted a hotel near Borought Market and a Tube station and this fit the bill perfectly. Just south of the Thames in a neighborhood of Bankside, this area was surprisingly quiet. The room had a kin size bed which I thought was unheard of in the UK/Europe. Staff was extremely nice and helpful and the room rate was reasonable. I would recommend highly.

Historical Traveler Reviews Premier Inn London Southwark - Borough Market
We booked this hotel after reading reviews on this site, and after having the Southwark area recommended by a friend. We had originally booked another hotel in the area, but it was going to work out at nearly twice the price for our family (2 adults, plus 2 kids aged 7 & 12).
First a huge thankyou to this webiste, without which I would never have found this great hotel or indeed planned our whole London trip.
Good location, good size rooms, excellent value
We liked this hotel a lot. Competitively priced family rooms. Good service. Nice location. Friendly and helpful staff. Would stay here again, or perhaps try to get a room at Premier Travel Inn County Hall.
Not so good: expensive wi-fi.
Additional advice regarding rooms available: I contacted this hotel, looking for a room for 3 adults and learned that the rooms are Twin size only. They cannot handle 3 adults (or adult sized teens). Family rooms can only accommodate children under 17.
Excellent location esp. for tourists
We (family with 2 kids) stayed at the Premier Travel Inn, Southwark this June'05. Excellent location .. near London bridge, Tate Modern, Shakespeare globe Theatre etc. Trafalgar square is not too far. The rooms though not very large ( that would be expecting much in london central) were modern and comfortable.
If planning to take the Eurostar , the hotel is close to Waterloo International.
We found the hotel - value for money. Lot of eating joints nearby, while this hotel is attached to the Anchor bar.
Breakfast didn't offer the choice that an English breakfast is known for.
Fabulous family Hotel at London Eye
We stayed in a family room for one night as we had a stopover in London on our return to singapore. We wanted somewhere cheap but clean and comfortable. We were so pleased with this hotel. we had been in europe for 2 weeks and this hotel was the largest room we had. It was very clean and the staff were excellent. I would recommend it in a heartbeat!
Spent a night here over the Christmas period. The location is fantastic, right next to the river Thames with lots to see and do within walking distance. Rooms are first class, we even had a view of the river from ours (just!).
Awesome location & great value!
My sister & I stayed at the Premier Lodge Southwark from Sept. 1 - 5, 2004 and I would highly recommend this hotel to any traveler. Its location on the South Bank of the Thames offers a number of excellent attractions nearby and provides a great spot in London for sightseeing. The rooms were modern, clean and comfortable. Despite a nasty exchange rate, the hotel was well-priced and offered a very good value for the money. Highly recommend.
We stayed at Premier Lodge, Southwark for 6 nights in April 2004. The hotel is modern, clean and comfortable, and the attached pub is fun for a beer. Although we didn't use the pub as a restaurant it looked like the food would be pretty good. The hotel services are fairly basic but it was perfect as a base from which to explore London. It is located on the south side of the Thames and there is a walkway that passes right beside the hotel and stretches along the south side of the river. You can take a walk to the east where there is an open air market (mostly on weekends) and an excellent cheese shop. To the west is the Shakespeare Globe (2 min walk), the Tate Modern/millennium bridge (5 min walk) and the London Eye (20 min walk). The London Bridge Tube station is a 5 min walk, although I wouldn't recommend trying to get to the hotel from the Tube the first time. In fact even the cab drivers had a hard time finding the hotel as it is new, try telling them you want to go to the Vinopolous (Wine museum) which is right across the street. I booked on-line at the Premier web site, which seemed to work pretty good.
