We like to think that some of our hotels give you that little bit extra when you stay with us on a business trip. Something a little unexpected that can give your trip a boost! From taking up residence in beautiful listed buildings to locations fit for world-famous rock stars, check out five of our hotels dotted all over the UK.
hub London Shoreditch
Our hub by Premier Inn hotels are pretty special already. Located smack bang in the heart of the action across London and Edinburgh, they’re home to super savvy and stylish rooms - just perfect for business travellers on the move.
One of our newest hub hotels (and has flagship status!) in the heart of East London’s cool spot Shoreditch, this 258-bedroom hotel was once a Victorian stable block that was built for the Great Eastern Railway dating back to 1888. Not only is it only 110m from Shoreditch High Street station, it’s opposite The Goodsyard ‘mega’ development, which will be home to loads of shops, restaurants, bars and a highline-style public park. A great place to stay if there’s some after work socialising to be had or if you fancy seeing the sights and sounds of nearby Brick Lane.
hub London Soho
Fun fact: the album cover of Britpop band Oasis’ ‘What’s the story morning glory?’ was shot just around the corner from our hub London Soho hotel. Boasting a coveted spot on Soho’s Berwick Street, the hotel is in the heart of it all and ‘record store land’ so it couldn’t be a more perfect location for Oasis and music fans alike. So, if that big meeting has gone well and you’re feeling a little ‘supersonic’, why not make the most of the hubbub of Soho?
Southwark, The Cut
Grand in design, and grand in size - you really can’t miss this hotel just off The Cut in Southwark. Not just made up of a hotel and our stylish Bar + Block restaurant steakhouse, (connected by a glass bridge no less!) plus it’s surrounded by beautiful greenery in the form of a public park for the whole community to enjoy. As well as the opportunity for al fresco dining, you’re also only a five-minute walk away from Waterloo station and incredibly close to a range of theatres, bars and restaurants.
Liverpool Albert Docks
Did you know the Albert Docks is home to the largest single collection of Grade I listed building anywhere in the UK? What’s more, our hotel is one of them! Dating back to the 19th century, it’s now a converted warehouse that overlooks the docks and located right in the mix of all the action. A stones throw away from The Tate, The Beatles Story and Merseyside Maritime Museum, there’s so much to see and do when you’ve got some free time on a work trip.
Newcastle The Gate
Once the famous Co-op building in Newcastle, this Premier Inn hotel still has some of the Grade II listed building’s original features such as an amazing marble staircase. Dating all the way back to the 1930s, there’s an art deco vibe about the whole place which makes for quite a decadent atmosphere. Another thing to look out for is the war memorial which names all the Co-op workers who lost their lives in the two world wars.
So, there you have it. Just a selection of our hotels making work trips that little bit more interesting. In fact, that’s your conversation starter for your next meeting sorted! We really look forward to seeing you at our hotels all over the UK
