Last week John and I spent a night at the Premier Inn BlackFriars London. We had a fantastic stay from start to finish and this is one London hotel I’d be happy to stay at again.
We arrived Friday evening after my consultation with an Endocrinologist. It had been a long day and I was ready to chill out and relax. Due to my health I have a disabled badge and the BlackFriars Premier Inn had two disabled parks in the court yard which made parking really easy and stress free.
We checked in super fast at the front desk and were given Keycards to our room. The hotel was lovely and clean, smelt wonderful and had a relaxing atmosphere to it. I was really pleased to finally get into our room after a day in London and I was not disappointed.
The room came with a Kettle and items to make warm drinks. We had a lovely flat screen tv, storage space, a desk and a clean and beautiful bathroom with a bath and over bath shower. After resting for a while John went out to do some photography while I tested out the bath. It was wonderful. Living in a house with a shower only, I absolutely loved my time in the bathroom. It was peaceful, clean and relaxing.
The room we stayed in had Wifi so I was able to get on with a little blog work before I went to bed and while john was out. The bed was comfortable and our room had everything we needed including a lovely duvet, extra pillows and air conditioning. We had a comfortable nights sleep and we even slept in which was unplanned but great!
We were on the 5th Floor and there were three lifts available to use. The first day all the lifts were working however on the second day two of the lifts were out of order. It didn’t make much difference time wise but we were a little squashed like sardines on the way down. There was also lovely spiral spiral staircase which was great to look down.
The Premier Inn was very busy in the morning and we were given a complimentary breakfast in the restaurant. Waking up later than planned we were worried we may have missed breakfast but luckily there was a menu and timetable in the room and breakfast was open for over 3 hours.
The Premier Inn breakfast range is really great. There was hot food, cereals, juice, hot drinks, fruit and a selection of savouries such as croissants. Being a bariatric patient with special dietary needs I can say there were plenty of options for me. John had a cooked breakfast and I went for fruit and yoghurt.
I was very impressed with the options. The only downside to a late breakfast is it was very busy and we had to sit the furthest away from the food which for an average person may not be an issue but for me using a crutch and going backwards and forwards for breakfast and drinks etc was hard work. Despite the room being very busy the room was excellent and I enjoyed my meal.
After Breakfast I had to leave for the BritMums Conference. The staff were always friendly and helpful and ordered me a Taxi. I waited in the foyer and noticed the quick check in option, something I’d not seen beforehand. I think this is a great idea because the hotel was crazy busy in the morning with people coming and going.
Many who arrived were due to check in later in the day but were able to leave their luggage in the hotel until the afternoon which I think is a good option. I enjoyed my stay at the Premier Inn. I would have loved to stay longer and would return without hesitation because it is good quality, relaxing and friendly and we were made to feel very welcome.
Disclosure: We were given a night’s stay and complimentary Breakfast at the Premier Inn in return for this review. All opinions are honest and my own.
