Premier Inn, Putney Bridge. Is it really premier? – Review

Staying in a hotel is always such a rare treat for me. I recently went to see Friendly Fires perform in London and living on the other side of the country, I knew I needed somewhere to stay. I am always budget conscious and a quick internet search led me to Premier Inn. Is everything really premier but the price?

Finding the hotel was easy – a couple of minutes walk from Putney Bridge subway and the big purple signs were hard to miss. The check-in procedure was very smooth and friendly, as I had done it beforehand online.
I was not expecting much but I was wowed upon entering the room. From staying at similar hotels in my childhood, I remembered small box rooms with a bed, TV and mirror shoved into a tiny square room. This room was huge and to think this is just a standard room really impressed me. Considering the room was only sleeping two people, there was more than enough space with huge windows and a large flatscreen TV.

We arrived back from the gig around midnight and the main reception doors let us in no problem. I was worried about having to find a little side door and use our keycard but we were back just in time. Feeling peckish I grabbed a snack from the well stocked vending machine and headed up to my room. The vending machines had everything you might need late at night from crisps to earplugs.
Now that I do not have a bath at home I took full advantage of a midnight bath. The water was warm but did not reach quite my perfect temperature. I am not sure if there is a temperature limit to prevent people from burning themselves or maybe simply the heating didn’t want to comply gone the witching hour. Either way, it was still very enjoyable.
The bed was larger than I expected and oh so comfortable. It was like sleeping in a marshmallow. I think it is great that you are supplied with both a soft and firm pillow as nobody is ever happy with what they are given. I wouldn’t have guessed I was in London as the windows let in no outside noise. It did not take me long to fall asleep.
With Premier Inn you get a 12pm checkout as standard so you can enjoy a nice lie in. Apparently Premier Inn now do a vegan breakfast now but I could not see this on their menu. However, I found a local cafe serving loads of vegan and vegetarian breakfast option so was able to enjoy breakfast without lugging my backpack around or having to keep an eye on the time.
Would I stay at Premier Inn again? Definitely. The whole experience really impressed me and I had one of the best nights sleep in a long time. At a bargain £51 for the night I would happily stay here again the next time I visit London.

      I believe that no matter what Premier Inn you stay at, they will all look very similar so I expect they are all good quality too.

    I have to say we have always been impressed with Premier inn and have never really had a bad experience. Most of the buildings are fairly new and the beds are really comfy. Often our go to stop over hotel!
