Advantages friendly, comfortable, clean, affordable
Disadvantages it is only two minutes from where I work
After spending three nights at the local Holiday Inn here in Borehamwood, a mile down the road from where I live, I had to relocate to the Premier Inn a couple of minutes down the road, the Holiday Inn was totally booked up. I didn’t mind very much, while the stay at the 4* Holiday Inn was OK, I was almost looking forward to ‘downgrading’ to the 3* Premier Inn.
Small but efficient with on average 2 people on duty, checking in is quick and easy, even at busy times on a Friday afternoon.
The Reception Area
If you are thirsty or hungry, vending machines can be found in the reception area – top row in one of them sells shaving kits and condoms (a funny sight, don’t know what parents of children will make of this, though).As said before, to get to the room you take either the stairs or lift. Corridors are narrow but not so small it would be claustrophobic.
Opening the door with your keycard works like all hotel entry systems. Just remember that at the Premier Inn you need to deposit your keycard into the receptacle in the wall to activate the lights, something not every hotel I have been has but I find very useful for those who forget to switch off the lights when leaving, lights will go out automatically after about a minute.
Room and Bathroom
Having come from the Holiday Inn down the road, the room at the Premier Inn itself is of same, if not larger size. I was pleasantly surprised to find a double bed in the room, I really learned to detest twin beds. Decorated in the purple/cream colour scheme, you will also find either a table and chairs or sofa in your room as well as a large desk with flatscreen TV with FreeView channels and a desk fan (in addition to the heater/aircon in the corner of the room.The bed is rather high but terribly comfortable. There is a notice that the pillows on the bed are firm, with soft pillows in the wardrobe area of the room (which is an open wardrobe opposite the bathroom area.
I sleep very badly at the best of times, even at home. I don’t have problems falling asleep, it’s the staying asleep I have problems with.
