“Okay budget hotel, but who's idea was the bathroom?”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

We stayed at the Port Solent Premier Inn prior to our trip to France. The hotel is clean and staff are welcoming, but who decided it was a good idea to have a bathroom with no sink? The hand basin is actually in the bedroom whilst the loo and shower are in the bathroom. This means you have to use the loo, then go into the bedroom to wash your hands, Can you imagine the level of germs on those door handles!
That said, our stay was comfortable, though the noise from surrounding roads could get you down. The breakfast was great and there was plenty to choose from. Would I stay there again? maybe but I'd look around first. Proximity to the ferry port is just ten minutes and for this, it's worth the quirky bathroom.

Room Tip: Get a room on the car park side but park early as we had to use the overflow and one car was damaged...

Can't complain: really good and friendly staff. Very clean. Very comfortable and very good value. Went to the adjacent (and presumably associated) Beefeater next door which was also fine. Much better than driving down on the day!
I would recommend it to anyone going to catch a ferry.

Excellent sized room for a family. Very polite and on a warm day good to have complimentary drinks on way in. Nice walk to bars and restaurants and ideal location for ferry crossings. Noise from main road no problems when windows shut

A gorgeous brand new Premier Inn, clean, luxurious and comfortable. This must be the new bit, as the old hotel ("Port Solent East") is literally across the car park - not sure what that is like but this one is lovely. The extremely friendly staff recommended us to eat on the quay of the harbour a few mins drive south of the hotel, which was a great suggestion. There is a Pizza Hut opposite the hotel, but the harbour restaurants are worth the detour. All possible choices of restaurant and views across the boats to the sunset. Lovely. Great breakfast the next morning too.

I stay in these all the time. This was like many others - clean, affordable and hospitable. There is a Supermarket, a PizzaHut and a pub in walking distance if you fancy a change from the in-house facilities which are perfectly fine. Staff are very friendly and helpful. I recommend this hotel, it ticks all the boxes!

A lovely hotel, clean and modern. Our room was a family room it was very nice and spacious even with 5 of us. The air con worked really well and was a god send !! Staff were fantastic, professional and friendly. Breakfast was spot on, lots of choice, fresh and well presented. Just beware of the revolving door that tries to eat children !! Joking aside though my daughter got her foot trapped under the revolvong door as there was quite a large gap. Thankfully we managed to get the door stopped and free her foot without serious injury. The staff were fantastic and rushed to help. One in particular a guy from either the bar or restaurant was a star, he immediately got us an ice pack and elevated her foot. He also got us drinks and managed to distract my little girl with sweets !!
