If the Premier Inn London County Hall weren't such an attractive building, one could at least say that it has a nice backdrop with The London Eye visible towering skywards behind it. Luckily, the building is such a grand one that it all but eclipses The London Eye.
As part of the popular Premier Inn chain the property is a large one, full of rooms in its uniform white and purple decor. However, unlike its counterparts, it's not the type of Premier Inn that you're likely to see at the side of a motorway; low modern buildings with big purple signs. As its name suggests the hotel is part of the historic County Hall building, making it an apt destination for fans of history and certainly giving it a degree of novelty. The hotel also includes its own restaurant, serving traditional and contemporary cuisine, which mirrors the hotel's architecture and decor, also a mix of the contemporary and the traditional. This is ideal for those who have little time to spend finding an alternative dining venue in the surrounding area, though there are many to choose from. The property has four meeting rooms making it convenient for those on business who are welcome to use the facilities for small company meetings or larger conferences.
It is also well placed for guests to access many of the city's most popular attractions from the historic to the novel. The City of Westminster is just across the river along with Theatreland and Buckingham Palace, whilst the artistic chic of South Bank and The London Eye are all within easy walking distance. The nearest tube station is just a 5 minute walk away as is Waterloo station, which is one of the city's largest stations and has National Rail services, allowing international guests to explore the rest of the country. It also provides access to the Bakerloo, Jubilee, Northern and Waterloo & City underground services, meaning that getting around the capital is quite easy.
Waterloo, central London. Nearest tube station is Waterloo on the Bakerloo, Northern, Jubilee and Waterloo & City lines.
WiFi - meeting/conference rooms
Guests arriving through either of the city's main airports can take the Heathrow Express to Paddington (journey time of approximately 15 minutes) or the Gatwick Express to Victoria (around 30 minutes). From Paddington guests can take the Bakerloo Line straight through to Waterloo, whilst those arriving at Victoria should take the Circle Line to Westminster where they can switch to the Jubilee Line to conclude their journey. Once exiting Waterloo station guests should follow the road down, taking a right onto Leake Street, crossing over the main road and walking down Chicheley Street. Guests should then turn right where they will soon find the hotel. Alternatively taxi services are available at all of the city's airports and major train stations.
Guests making their own way to the hotel by car should follow signs for Hyde Park, central London. On reaching the park guests should exit at the south-east corner onto Duke of Wellington Place and through to Constitution Hill. From here guests should take a right followed by a left onto Birdcage Walk and follow the road over Westminster Bridge. On reaching the other side guests should take the second left onto York Road followed by the first left and immediate right onto Belvedere Road.
