I took a group of 35 young swimmers and parents on a trip to see the Olympic trials and we stayed at the Premier Inn. Location was perfect, right next to the Stratford International station which was only 6 minutes in to St Pancras, and 5 minutes walk to the Olympic park.
The rooms were obviously new, clean and comfortable, I thought the backlit mirror above the hairdryer station was a brilliant touch for what is supposed to be a budget hotel.
Without exception, every member of staff we encountered over the weekend weas friendly and helpful, even when faced with a group of excited teenagers seeing their heroine Rebecca Adlington sitting next to them at breakfast.
The bar and restaurant area was very modern and comfortable and again, much more than you would expect at a budget hotel. The unlimited breakfast is a great bargain, doubly so when kids eat for free- it is amazing how much 12 year olds can put away!
Only one constructive criticism was that the bar was understaffed on both nights. The hotel was obviously 100% full and service was extremely slow as the bar staff were also on duty for the restaurant.
We will certainly be actively looking out for Premier Inn for our next group or family break. This is a great flagship hotel for the company to show off for the Olympics.
