“Lovely place to stay”
Reviewed 15 August 2014

We stayed here for a few days at the end of July, having stayed here on previous occasions. The hotel is in an excellent position and was spotlessly clean. The new air conditioning was brilliant and made a welcome relief to the heat outside. The staff are so polite and helpful and the breakfast and evening meals were excellent.

Stayed 2 nights in room 42 - spotless clean and good space. Small window looking upon a roof - no nice view and the room became very dark. Comfy new medium hard bed and good tea facilities. Air con worked ok but made a lot of noice especially in the bath room. Room 42 is in their quiet zone and we heard absolutely nothing from the pier. We parked in the hotels private parking house just beside the hotel - including the price for the room. Very nice service. We will be happy to come again however we will ask for a room with a view.

Stayed in a sea view room opposite the funfair. Noise was no problem at all. Stayed 3 days to look around the area, loved Gunwharf with its shops and many restarants and spent a day at the Dockyard (used Tesco vouchers for this!). We were going on to the Isle of Wight, thus the reason for staying here. Our car stayed in the underground car park the whole time. The staff and facilities were very good here, though we tended to eat at Gunwharf. Had breakfast here, good and also enjoyed their Italian buffet one night.
We had a problem with our bed, the springs on one side kept springing so one of us moved into the single bed. Mentioned to reception next day and asked for a topper, when we came back we had a brand new bed with a great topper. Very impressed so went to thank reception who said that they had already refunded our account with the money for that night.
Situation is the big thing here, you can walk everywhere.

The hotel is literally on the waters edge and has fantastic views of the harbour. As you would expect from Premier Inn, the rooms are very clean and comfortable with most of the amenities required for a good stay. They have a lift to the upper floors and air conditioning which has been wonderful during the recent period of very hot weather we are having. There is also a secure car park with a limite number of covered spaces.

We travelled with a 2.5 year old and a 5 month old baby and needed somewhere to stay the night before taking an early ferry to Isle of Wight the following morning. I wanted something cheap and cheerful but with parking, easy drive to ferry, child friendly, clean and easy booking. So after trying all the websites (Booking.com etc) and finding it very difficult to book an extra bed for toddler (and not paying for a triple room) and a cot for the baby (and not paying for a family room of 2 adults and 2 children) I just went to Premier Inns Website and booked a room within 2 minutes.

We got a spacious, clean and great room which was facing the recreational area in the back which meant it was very quiet (room 37).

Coming to this hotel with children is a great choice as there is a funfair outside. My 2.5 year old eyes were about to pop out with joy and amazement when he saw this.

Parking was super easy.

I thoroughly recommend this hotel for a short stay.

It took 6 minutes to drive to the ferry in the morning.

Enjoy!

We arrived and got checked in and then, and only then did the receptionist ask me if I had been called by Premier Inn about the water being cut off at 9 o'clock the next morning. There were no alternatives offered and this woud not have anything to do with the good night guarantee.
Car park is under the building. Hotel is right on the beach, The room was as expected from a Premier Inn. View was of the beach and funfair.
Only the bed was uncomfortable compared to any other PI we have stayed in.
Didn't complain because we were told on arrival that the hotel was full and we didnt get to bed untill after midnight. So another room wasent n option.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the sea.

We booked three rooms 23,25 and 27 for a Business stopover. We arrived about 4pm and managed to park in the Premier Inn Car Park without problem. It isn't a huge car park and I'd image it does get full quite easily, but parking outside and just around the corner by the Restaurant is no problem. There is a large car park there. The rooms were spotlessly clean and comfortable. The bed excellent. We were up a couple of floors and overlooked the road, which was noisy from 6am, although I did have the window open. The even numbered rooms look at to sea. We all had breakfast in the adjoining restaurant before departing which again was fist class. We arrived back at the hotel at 1am and asked the night attendant whether there were any fast food outlets open, he produced flyers for a local kebab shop and pizza delievry company. He even phoned the order through and then called our mobile when the pizza arrived. Top class service.

Room Tip: 23,25 and 27 faced the road. Even numbers opposite faced the Sea.
