England is littered with Premier Inn hotels – budget hotels that emerged as a competitor to Travel lodge. They have several around Heathrow, with the one on Bath Street, near Terminals 2 and 3, being the newest one and the one that had the best reviews. We stayed there on a Monday night in April 2018 prior to a flight out of Heathrow. It was definitely serviceable for a single night.
We booked a room with two double beds, to accommodate two adults and two teens. The beds and pillows were reasonably comfortable The room itself was small but also reasonably well appointed. It included a sofa chair with a small table, a single nightstand, and a desk/dresser with one of the smallest flat-screened TVs I’ve seen – not much of an issue in this age of mobile phones and tablets. They offered free internet at a decent speed – or super fast internet for £5 for up to 3 devices. We stuck with the free one. It worked well, but you had to re-sign in every time you turned on your device again.
The room was clean and the bathroom was a good size, but the shower had a shower curtain, instead of a door, which I personally dislike. The hotel didn’t provide much in the way of toiletries: there was a dispenser with a combination shampoo/body wash in the shower and a dispenser with hand soap by the sink. No conditioner – an issue we encountered at other hotels.
Even though the hotel is right by the airport, we didn’t hear any airplane noise.
We has breakfast at the hotel (£10.50 for adults, kids eat free) and I was quite happy with the spread. There were hot English staples such as ham and sausages, baked eggs, baked beans and so forth – and also more continental fare. I particularly liked the crumpets with butter and jam. They had a cappuccino/latte machine that made adequate drinks as well as tea, juices and milk.
Perhaps the one minus is that parking is £10, but I just considered that as part of the cost of the room.
I’d stay here again.
