Family Stay at Premier Inn London Bank (Tower)
If you’ve been following our adventures on social media you’ll know that we’ve been enjoying a little break in London. This involved an overnight stay and we wanted to share our family stay at Premier Inn London Bank.
My wife and I have stayed in a few Premier Inns around the city and as a family, we’ve stayed in many family rooms and different hotels and know that the standard varies quite a lot. This trip was to be a little bit different, this was to be the first time that the girls have visited London.
When we travel to London we come into London Bridge train station so wanted a hotel near that but also quite central as we had plans to visit lots of different places. Premier Inn London Bank seemed to fit the brief pretty perfectly. The hotel is just across the river from London Bridge and just around the corner from The Monument.
The beauty of these hotels is it all feels familiar when checking in, pop in your details and the room cards are printed out, it’s quick and simple. If needed there was a friendly staff member nearby…just like when we needed to leave our luggage with them for the day.
The room we were given was a family room on the 7th floor, I’m not sure all the family rooms are on this level? At a guess, they’re spread out across the floors. When we arrived to go to our room it was around 6.30pm and noticed it felt quite quiet as we got in the lift.
We had no idea what to expect from our family room, we’ve had some that consist of two double beds, some that have a double and a sofa bed. Our room at Premier Inn London Bank was huge and made up of a queen size bed and two single beds. There certainly weren’t packed in either and we had lots of room for our luggage too without stepping all over it.
With Premier Inn you know what you’re going to get. The room was spotlessly clean, we had spare pillows if needed and enough towels for all of us without having to share. Another great thing about this room was plenty of plugs and ones near the beds. In the past, we’ve stayed places where you had to charge you photo on the other side of the room and we use ours as an alarm clock so not ideal.
The bathroom was large with a bath/shower combo and plenty of amenities, this helps as it means we never have to take our own saving on luggage space and weight.
As we were on the top floor the views were quite incredible. This is what you see of an evening and wake up to.
For this Premier Inn, the restaurant is in the same building, some of the ones outside of the city are next door but this is on -1 floor. We ate here in the evening and this is also where you have breakfast in the morning.
When we went to eat at around 6.30 it was pretty quiet and we didn’t have to wait to get seated. The staff were quick to take our order and the menu felt different from a usual Premier Inn. Normally the menu has a few burger options and chicken dishes and not much else. This had salads, fish dishes and my favourite Katsu Chicken Curry which was perfect. The choice for both adults and children was much greater than we’re used to at hotels.
The food came pretty quickly and the staff were accommodating with our requests. As mentioned the breakfast was served in the same place, we got there just before 8 am and it wasn’t busy. The breakfast on offer ranged from full cooked English to a classic Contential, fruit juices, hot drinks they seemed to have everything covered. Who doesn’t like a full breakfast to start the day?
Premier Inn London Bank Conclusion
Overal we loved staying here, right on the river and in easy distance of everything we needed. The staff were really helpful and friendly and the rooms really clean. One thing we all noticed was that this was the quietest hotel room we’ve ever stayed in.
We were given this room for the purpose of this post, all photos and thoughts are our own.
