After our busy first day at Legoland we were shattered and couldn't wait to sit down for a bit and chill!
As part of our mini-break package we could choose which hotel we wanted to stay in; we chose the Premier Inn Bath Road, Heathrow. You can choose hotels nearer to the Legoland complex but we decided that a little drive would be good.
You can so tell that we are not used to being in a big city as when we pulled up at the hotel I was in awe. Yes I`m used to seeing hotels in Bournemouth but nothing there is the size of this Premier Inn,it was huge!! And to add to my awe the hotel had a 24hr Costa coffee shop, 24hr bar and best of all, a Ben And Jerry's ice cream vending machine, amazing!!!
|My new best friend!!|
We had a large quad/family room with a huge king size and two single beds, the room was plenty big enough for all of us and I have to say that the beds were amazingly comfy.
Included in the price was the cost of breakfast so all we had to pay for was our dinner.
When we checked in we were informed that if we ate in their in-house restaurant, Thyme, between 5pm and 7pm for every full priced adult meal purchased we could have an all you can eat kids buffet with ice cream for pudding FREE...result!!!!
England were playing in the World Cup that night so decided to have an early dinner to miss the rush.
Hubby ordered his usual of the biggest burger on the menu whilst I treated myself a gorgeous rump steak with a cheese and bacon topping; it was amazing, the diet can be forgotten for one night right???
|Hmmmm,steak with cheese and bacon topping|
|The ultimate full house burger|
|Filling up of the unlimited kids buffet|
Once we had finished our beautiful dinner we decided to go back to our room instead of sitting in the bar as it was getting busy with the pre match build up. I had hoped that the boys would crash out with exhaustion, but oh no they were full of beans and decided that they wanted to play Skylanders, of all places under our massive bed!!
Sunday morning we woke to the news of England`s defeat so hubby and the kids skulcked down to breakfast, again the quality was amazing.....all you could eat continental and cooked breakfast. Hubby was very impressed with it all but especially the sausages as he likes a good sausage and these were amazing!
My personal favourite bit of the breakfast was the unlimited Costa coffee....I do love a good latte in the morning.
The only downside of our stay, if you can call it that, was that I didn't sleep very well due to people banging around above us. On check out we were asked if we had slept OK. I informed them why I hadn't and had been kept awake till the early hours. Luckily the boys and hubby slept right through.
They were amazing about it and offered us a full refund of the room cost, no questions asked. Now that is what I call 5* customer service.
Our whole experience of Premier Inn has been an amazing one and we will definitely be booking with them again in the future.
We booked this hotel with no input from Premier Inn and have written this review with no compensation from Premier Inn. This review is an honest account of our stay.
