We stayed at this Premier Inn because it was close to a wedding reception we were attending at Southsea Castle. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and spacious and everything worked as it should. It's not luxury, but it suited our needs perfectly. Before checking out the next day we had the full english breakfast and it was absolutely excellent. Well worth the extra. The free WiFi worked perfectly, no need for us to pay extra for the high speed option that was offered. The higher floor rooms on the side facing the water should have nice views over the water towards the Isle of Wight.
Some of the public areas do look a bit tired. A bit of carpet shampooing would probably make all the difference. The lift wasn't working when we were there which wasn't a problem for us.More
