Business Traveller UK|May - June 2021
BACKGROUND This new property opened briefly in December 2020, when I stayed, and then closed from December 24, 2020, until April 12, 2021 owing to the Covid-19 pandemic.

It was developed with property company Frogmore and designed by Dexter Moren Associates, with a new public park and courtyard forming part of the project. It is Whitbread’s fifth Premier Inn hotel in the borough of Southwark, joining those at Borough High Street, Tate Modern, Tower Bridge and Bankside. In addition, a 110-room Hub by Premier Inn opened on Soho’s Berwick Street in April, with a 246-room Hub on Quaker Street in Shoreditch scheduled to open in late June.

WHERE IS IT?

Between Ufford Street and the Cut, approximately 100 metres from Southwark Underground station and about a five-minute walk from Waterloo station.
