Premier Inn London Southwark - Borough Market
Travel Blogs from London
I can’t put into words much this trip has meant to me. The people I’ve come to know, the places I never thought I’d see, basically all of my dreams have come true. After longing to visit London for so long and only being able to read or hear about it, it’s stood up to my expectations. This city is so different from any I have ever been to. Not only ...
... Once on the platform we sat and waited for our train, thank heavens Narelle is a stickler for being early after all the mucking around with the lifts. There was a bit of confusion with incoming trains being moved to different platforms so we sat and stressed over this happening to us as the trains don't stop too long and we would have to negotiate the stairs again in a hurry. Well no need to worry, not about that anyway. We were in carriage 2 ...
... to avoid further complications. After a good ten minutes of self-pity and despairing over the bad timing (a foot injury six days into a trip to one of the most walkable cities on the planet!) Aidan stepped out to a nearby pharmacy to buy me a compression bandage/brace and some cushioning insoles to help pad my step (he really is the best husband--I don't say it enough to him, but here it is, preserved forever on the Internet: Aidan, you rock!) ...
... Shout out to Mom, scientists found out she was around 50 years old at the time of her death by examining the dentine of her teeth at the University of Wales Dental School. Cool right? I perused the gift shop for a bit, but decided I'll certainly be back again and I'll pick a book then. It took about an hour to get back by Tube and I was shortly off to my first class of the term.
My first and only class today ...
We started early this morning and headed out for our last breakfast in Paris with Emma and Clive. Paris breakfast delivered as always, croissant, baguette and omelette. So delicious. We packed up from Dad's apartment, trying to restore some order to their beautiful space. Em and Clive, ever helpful, assisted us to the taxi rank. Unsurprisingly it is not easy to get any where with ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsPremier Inn London Southwark - Borough Market
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.
