Anything wrong with the premier inn and holiday inn?

I stayed at the premier inn a few years back and it was a great base to stay. Plenty of parking, cheap, clean and cheerful, it ticked all the boxes for a family of four who didn't want to spend much time at the hotel.

I have stayed at other Holiday Inn Express hotels and the advantage here is the buffet breakfast which is included in the rate and which the kids seemed to like.

I know what you mean about the prices at Sandbanks, lol!

no nothing wrong at all - only have never stayed in one before - or any hotel with the kids ! I think Holiday inn is a preference - with the breakfast - we wont even be in the hotel long arriving late fri then at wedding all day sat and home suinday ! just wasnt sure if there were any other obvious ones I had missed - living in a rural area we have very few chain hotels, and I didnt really know wh they night be ! Thank you for your reply

I have sent you an e-mail bump2. If you can let me know the dates you need accommodation for and your budget I will see what I can do to help! Sorry to hear our rates proving too high at Sandbanks. We try to pack quite a lot into your stay during the summer months, including children's entertainment, family evening entertainment, choice of restaurants, watersports academy etc. that the budget hotels cannot offer, and of course we are situated right alongside the beach itself.

Since we are just down the road from your venue at Compton Acres however Sandbanks would be ideally situated for your needs. I might be able to work something out for you if you want to contact me direct.

Best wishes
