Premier Inn Epsom Central Review

Posted on
November 9, 2015

Over the half term holiday we made plans to visit Chessington World of Adventures as well as central London, so to save two long journeys we decided to book a hotel as a base for a night.
As a larger than average family budget hotels are normally our first port of call and Premier Inn have larger than average family rooms which is essential when travelling with children including one who needs some added space for a travel cot.
Sadly when we have the teenager in tow, it means there are six of us so we need to book two rooms and one of the downsides of this is that Premier Inn don’t have inter-connecting rooms so we cannot all stay together. We booked the Epsom Central Premier Inn and requested two rooms which upon booking in found that they were at opposite ends of the hotel but thankfully the receptionist managed to work some magic and we ended up opposite each other.
I have to admit we are normally big fans of Premier Inn but found this one quite old and dated, especially the bathrooms, although both rooms were spotlessly clean and tidy and still had their famously comfortable hypnos beds which has a thousand pocket springs supporting a super-comfortable pillow top mattress. The younger kids were not so lucky as they had fold out beds, although they didn’t seem to mind as they slept soundly throughout the night.
Premier Inn
The rooms came with a wardrobe to hang any clothing, a flat screen TV with freeview, tea / coffee making facilities and an en-suite bathroom which had a very noisy extractor fan.
Premier Inn
The Premier Inn itself is attached to a Brewers Fayre, the Haywain, which is where we ate dinner and had our breakfast the following morning. I have to stay the staff were amazing and managed to get our dinners cooked and served to us within 15 minutes of our order which was perfect as we had arrived very late and the kids were ready for their beds.
Brewers Fayre
The food was delicious and the activity packs came in handy for keeping the kids entertained the following morning. Breakfast was equally delicious with a good range of continental, traditional and cooked breakfast on offer.
Although it wasn’t the most modern and up to date Premier Inn we have stayed in, it was quiet, inexpensive, comfortable and perfect for an overnight stay!

    I didn’t realise they didn’t do interconnecting rooms. I do love staying at a premier inn though as they are comfortable for a good nights sleep. I do like the modern ones and wish they would update the older one’s now to match the standard of the newer ones that have been built. x

    I actually quite like Premier Inn. They are really handy, normally have a restaurant attached and they aren’t too expensive. Plus you know what to expect with them. Great review.

    I’m glad that you had a good stay. I am always disappointed when I end up in a dated hotel room, to me old rooms always feel dirty, even though most of the time they aren’t!

    Premier Inns always seem to be a good value option!

    We have stayed in a couple of Premier Inns and we have always found them to be good. I suppose the fact the room is dated doesn’t matter if you get a good nights sleep in a comfy bed!

    I quite like staying in Premier Inn’s too, but have found some could do with a bit of a revamp. I’m glad you all had a good night’s sleep! x
