Historical Traveller Reviews of London (Southwark) Premier Lodge Hotel
Great little hotel in a great location!from Oceansiders
The staff was friendly and spoke English. The Anchor Pub restaurant on premises had a great outdoor deck on the Thames with a nice view of St. Paul's.
The neighborhood was fun. It's only a few short blocks to the London Bridge Tube Station and as others have noted, there are a LOT of local attractions as well as a lot of nearby pubs, an outdoor market, small eateries and pastry shops. Borough High Street (where you get the the Tube Station) has a lot of banks with ATM's and there are several Internet cafe's as well. When we first arrived it was a little bit hard to find with all the twisting and narrow streets, but we quickly got oriented.
We felt this hotel provided great value for the price (London is not a cheap place to visit) and we will probably stay here when we visit again.
Great for disabledfrom alienmitch
The hotel is right behind the london eye, so that was great as the train station is only a few minutes away.
Once we arrived at the hotel they had a system of side entrance for disabled and if you are disabled you will know the side entrance to any place is always used for us,rarely teh front entrance.The room was really big and plenty of room for my wheelchair.
The bathroom had all the needs anyone would want and everyday neat clean towels, fresh bedding and rooms tidy to a high standard! The coffee and tea and milk provided get you a cuppa but you do need to ask fro more if there is more than 2 adults.With us being 3 the staff provided more no questions asked.
Breakfast was really nice , they provide and cater for all.
The bar is open until early hours.
Although you really are very close to Waterloo station and west minster bridge , you really wont hear any noise form traffic!
All in all a 1st class hotel and london for the weekend is definately a must!
Great little hotelfrom flyer01

Small scale with atmospherefrom Chris_Jetten
In fact this comparison holds for the entire hotel: the Southwark is smaller in size than County Hall, but has more atmosphere. Cobbled and quiet streets surround the hotel, entrance is though a courtyard, the reception is a small desk and tiny office, and breakfast is served in a nice navy style pub adjacent to the hotel. Beds are wonderfully soft and shower pressure and temperature are excellent even during peak hours.
The only cons I can think of are the air conditioner which cold not really cool the room (but the County Hall has no air conditioning at all), and the fact that the windows cannot be fully opened (although I was told this is following health and safety requirements). But these are small inconveniences, and will not prevent me from preferring this hotel to the County Hall for my future visits!
Reasonably priced clean little hotel with WiFifrom Awarely
Good value in a good location.from coverpoint
Not in the case of the Premier Travel Inn Southwark I would venture though. Here you will find a good value, good sized room that is clean, comfortable and modern, within a hotel facility in a smart, accessible, yet relatively peaceful part of London.
The hotel is in a good location, less than 5 minutes walking distance from London Bridge tube station which connects easily with central London via the Jubilee line.
Within the immediate area are a number of excellent cafés, restaurants and my own favourite, London pubs. Should you wish to venture out yourself to try the local pubs, I would highly recommend the Market Porter, on Stoney Street. Its popularity and quality can be easily assessed by the fact that it is always packed! Also worth visiting are the Wheatsheaf further along Stoney Street, the George Inn on Borough High St. and The Globe on Bedale St.
The Premier Travel Inn is attached to a pub called The Anchor (in which you will be served breakfast if you choose to have it at a reasonable cost), this is a perfectly serviceable pub, but not as enjoyable as those mentioned above.
To conclude then, if you are looking for a comfortable, good value hotel, in a good location, without the fripperies of more luxurious hotels, then this will serve you well.
good place, fair pricefrom isakalo
The rooms were clean and normal size. the service was great. We never try the restaurant at the hotel. I will recommend the higher floors. There is a little bit of noise in the first floor. Taxi ride is probably better than the tube to get there. If you are not looking for luxury, but for good value, and good location, this is a good choice to consider.
Around the area are couple of places to eat. Nando's is a sort of fast food restaurant but the food (chicken, Portuguese) is very nice.
Good place to stay in Londonfrom CuriousKaren
My only real complaint was the food at the Anchor Pub which adjoins the hotel. The hot carvery was under-staffed on New Years Eve and they had hardly anything to eat from their menu (at 7pm!). The food we got was pretty average. The A la Carte area is closed and will not re-open for another month or so. We didn't have breakfast at the pub but if dinner was anything to go by, we didn't miss much. A shame really as the pub looks great from outside and inside - real character.
Wonderful little hotel!from A TripAdvisor Member
My thanks to all the reviewers who wrote in about this property - I chose it based on their reviews solely and I was not disappointed.
Top Local Tips for London
use the bus not the tube There are now so many buses in london it's a much better way of getting around than the tube.research what you need on the tfl website and take your time and see the sights by bus rather than play mole and go underground.

London Transport - No Information Available It was hard work sussing out London Transport before we got there. I was convinced our best option was the £5.80 Travelcard (zones 1 & 2, DLR, Tube & Bus). WRONG! Get a £3.50 bus travelcard from automatic machines at some bus stops or Newsagents. Remember, you can't see the sights from the underground!
