Premier Inn largest London property

Paddington Station site is now open.

Situated less than half a mile from Paddington Station, and even less from Edgware Road Tube, the new 393-room hotel on North Wharf Gardens is the largest Premier Inn in Central London.  The waterside setting is delightful in a fast-developing part of London west central.

The hotel is the first of three significant openings for the Whitbread-owned hotel group in the Paddington and Marylebone area of the capital in the next three years.  It features Premier Inn’s latest standard rooms, enhanced Premier Plus rooms and Bar + Block Steakhouse restaurant.  Many of the new rooms have stunning skyline views of the capital.

Alex Flach, UK Development Director at Whitbread, said: “We opened more than 30 new Premier Inn and hub by Premier Inn hotels across the UK and Ireland during our 2021/22 financial year.  We are continuing this impressive rate of growth this financial year with exciting new openings in city centre locations like Paddington in central London, but also in popular regional cities and leisure-led locations across the country.

“We see real opportunity for our brands over the next few years as the economy continues to recover from the pandemic and as the trend for domestic travel continues. We have refreshed our development targets in London and across the country, have an excellent product and are predicting a very busy few years of expansion ahead”.

The opening of the Paddington Basin Premier Inn follows recent new site openings for Premier Inn across London.

In its 2021/22 financial year, Whitbread opened six new Premier Inn and hub by Premier Inn hotels across the capital in established locations such as Hammersmith, Canning Town, Uxbridge and Tooting as well as in Soho (Berwick Street) and Shoreditch in prime central London.
