My recent stay here was based on 2 factors...1. rated as No 1 TA hotel in Southampton, and 2. previous experience of Premier Inns....oh and 3.it was cheapish for the location.
This hotel is quite well located in an area of significant business and leisure development, there is a large John Lewis and Marks & Spencer across the road and short walk to a shopping mall development. We stayed here due to its proximity to the IoW ferry port...literally a stones throw away. Hence the hotel is new, modern, and still seems quite fresh.
The reception staff were helpful and talked us through the checkin process on the ATM-style kiosks that produced invoices and room keys.
The room was a good size but i had booked a twin and in fact was given a double but with a small put-you-up style bed made up as a single bed (NIGGLE 1), luckily my son didn't mind sleeping low down on the sofa bed so i had the double. We decided to watch the rugby on the TV but (NIGGLE 2) no BBC channels were available, i checked with reception staff and this was blamed on a recent change to digital TV in the area....mmm, not very convincing explanation frankly since the game was being shown on a TV in the bar area.
NIGGLE 3...the bedroom curtain was so thin and poorly fitting that in the morning sun was streaming into the room very early...take some eye shades.
Bathroom was ok, just a shower gell dispenser, no bars of soap.
Parking (NIGGLE 4) was a large multi-storey next door although there were a few "drop-off" spaces at the back of the hotel but despite being informed by reception that these spaces were monitored they clearly were not as i saw cars arriving there as we were arriving and they were still there the next morning thus avoiding the £5 overnight charge. Be aware that the multi-storey closes at 10:30pm so make sure you don't need to use your car after this time.
Wireless Internet was available, first 30 mins were free then a charge of £3 for 24 hrs.
We didn't eat in the hotel (we walked up the road to TGIF) but the menu seemed quite good and various pricing offers made it attractive to eat 2 or 3 courses and possibly breakfast the next day.
Would i stay here again....probably, its a good location and frankly its currently hard to beat the price points for the quality.
