Staying At The Premier Inn In Hanger Lane
This is a brilliant Premier Inn and one of the only ones that I know that has rooms at the promised low prices that you see on the TV. My sister and I stayed on the Friday and Saturday nights of the first weekend in December, we had the buffet breakfast each day and it was only £84 in total. A complete bargain.
It is located between two train stations, one is Park Royal on the Piccadilly line and is about five to ten minutes walk away depending on the speed you walk. The other station is Hanger Lane Station which is on the Central line and is about one minute walk to the hotel, you walk down into the underpass and the entrance to the station is at the other end. It takes about 10 minutes to get into London on the train.
When you walk into the hotel there are 2 little desks where there are sometimes staff if you need help or there are those big check-in machines to do it all yourself.
The staff were all really nice and chatty, ready to help out if we needed them and always had a smile on their faces.
We had a double room and it was huge, you could of easily got two more double beds in the room and still have room to move around. there was a desk with a chair, a spare chair in the corner and a big wardrobe that had a mirror and hair dryer already set up. The only thing I didn’t like about the room was that the TV sat on one of the shelves in the wardrobe and it was such a small TV that we couldn’t see it from the bed because it was about fifteen feet from the head of the bed. So when we were sat in bed watching TV, we couldn’t really make out what we were watching. The aircon was a big fiddly, we were really cold when we went in so turned it on a little but then woke up in the middle of the night sweating so turned it off. We kept it on 21 degrees the rest of the time so that we stayed comfortable.
The bathroom was surprising small when you think how big the room was but it had the usual toilet, sink and shower/bath. Like the room, it was cleaned everyday. Shower was easy to work out and the bath is a nice big bath that even I could get into for a nice soak.
The breakfast in the mornings was brilliant, so much to choose from food and drink wise, there was even smoothies which I really liked. You had mushrooms, sausages, eggs, tomatoes, has browns, bacon, baked beans, etc for the cooked breakfast. Then there was different cereals, breads, fruit, juices and yogurt. it’s best to go down to breakfast as early as you can as we found the breakfast room gets really busy at about 9am. It’s a big breakfast room but it became packed very quickly.
The wifi is free, it’s easy to connect to it and you get a strong signal no matter where you are in the building.
There is a little shop round the corner which is great for getting snacks and it’s not too expensive.
We didn’t use it but there is a car park round the back of the hotel which you have to pay to park in.
Would gladly stay here again and would highly recommend it.
