My wife and I stayed for one night in an accessible room whilst we went to see Foreigner in concert at the Portsmouth Guildhall.
Location and room - well located for access to the Town Centre. We got a cab and it cost £3.50. If you can walk with no problems, it is probably a 20-30 minute level walk. The hotel is situated on the sea front near to amusement arcades and the hovercraft to the Isle of Wight. There are two marked disabled parking bays but room for other badge holders if required. There is level access to the reception and a lift to upper floors. The bathroom had a low bath and a shower attached. The bed was low, supportive and comfortable. The room was not air conditioned but was heated. We suffered from noise in the room above us with a child running around. We had mentioned it the previous afternoon and whilst it was quiet when we returned late at night the noise started early the next day. The staff were very understanding and refunded the cost of the stay without even being asked. We did not expect it at all and the receptionist explained about the good night sleep guarantee.
Staff - they could not do enough for us. The lady on the late shift ordered us a taxi and gave us the number so we could avoid using a taxi rank later in the evening. The night shift guy was friendly and told us to let him know if we needed anything. The early shift lady was sympathetic about the noise and refunded the money.
Food - there is a Brewer's Fayre Restaurant attached to the Premier Inn. Friendly staff, great food and a really nice view of ships travelling along Portsmouth Sound.
I recommend this hotel and would stay again.
