The Highs and Lows of a Premier Inn……

So that’s our first night over in Premier Inn Wembley. We’ve stayed in many Premier Inns over the years with running and Rugby events and they serve their purpose very well. They are reasonably priced, except when there’s an event on, then the price trebles- luckily we always book a year in advance for this weekend so we’re ok.But some people have paid £189 to stay tonight after the game- are they mad. Yes the rooms are spotless, spacious and you can’t go wrong at £60ish in London but £189- and that doesn’t include breakfast.
Breakfast is one of the highs in this place, in fact all the food is. Reasonably priced, good quality snap. Drinks are a rip off though- but that tends to be the norm in London!! Another high is how welcoming the staff are to the rowdy rabble of rugby fans that descend on them every year- they could ask them to be quiet or leave- not that they can be quiet. Over the years I’ve come to the conclusion that RL fans are tone deaf- and that’s just the women!!
Anyway back to this place, downside is that no matter which Premier inn I stay at- I wake feeling like my sinuses have been ripped out- I think it’s the air con/heating system. Or maybe it’s last nights lager!!! The there’s the pillow situation- apparently, acording to the label they put on them (that makes a fab pirate hat by the way) ones firm and ones soft. Ermmmm. Think they forgot the firm ones in here, soft and flat as a pancake but no firm in sight!!!!!
Probably my only gripe really, that and Ernie snoring and Jack tutting and sighing at Ernie snoring- but I don’t suppose there’s much Premier Inn can do about that!!
Now I just waiting for sleepy. Grumpy to wake up and we can head for breakfast – hope they hurry up- I’m starving!!
First night over
We’ll be on ‘Wembley Way’ soon
Bring it on

    Hi Dawn, we just stayed at a Premier Inn down in Cambridge (Adam’s wedding) and like you….no complaints. The food was good, three course meal for £22 with a free breakfast the following day and as many lattes as we could drink. On the strength of that we are staying at a Premier Inn up in Glenroths when we take Jess to St Andrews University in a couple of weeks. Hope they’re doing the same deal! xx
