“Excellent value for money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2012

Came to Southampton for Cunard's Royal Rendez-Vous of the 3 Queens as part of the Diamond Jubilee celebrations and was happily surprised to find a room here at 44 £.
It is a budget hotel chain but I was quite impressed by their standard :
- very friendly, welcoming and helpful staff
- you can check in your self at the kiosk
- rooms are rather big (have had much smaller rooms at some 4*/5* hotels!)
- very clean, including bathroom
- you can select the extra's you want/need like breakfast, newspaper, other meals, internet
- it is not really downtown but I think most visitors staying overnight in Southampton are coming off or going on a ship ... so all terminals are within walking distance and if you have too much luggage to carry, just hail a taxi, it will cost you about 5-8 £
- the hotel is next a big shopping Mall, with a food court (all usual international brands)

Maybe just 2 minor suggestions :
- foresee in the room at least one special plug for overseas visitors (in the meantime you can ask one from reception... or bring your own of course!)
- breakfast choice could just be upgraded to a couple of extra continental touches like some cold cuts (ham, cheese, ...) for those who are not that keen of the classical English breakfast

Overall, it remains an excellent value for money and for sure, if I need an hotel in Southampton in the future, I'll definitely start by checking price/availability first at Premier Inn West Quay

Last year I wrote a rather underwhelming review of another Premier Inn, this time things could not be more different. We used this new Inn as an overnight before boarding our cruise the next day.

Location: Close to all the cruise terminals.
Staff: Efficient, ultra friendly.
Room: Clean, spacious and more than adequate.
Restaurant: Probably the best meal we have had in any hotel in the last 3 years, absolutely superb. We had the Dinner and breakfast deal which is well worth it.
Parking: In the multi story, £5 for 24 hours. Very secure, no problem as they have a large luggage drop off point.

In short there is nothing negative to say about staff, accomodation or food. Fantastic.

Room Tip: Perhaps select a rear facing room as the road at the front does get noisy. It didn't bother us b...

Ideally placed for the West Quay shopping centre, the harbour & city centre, this PI is only about a year old & definitely has a modern feel to it. Rooms conform to the PI standard & are clean, quiet & comfortable. This PI has its own restaurant, rather than an attached pub as many of them do. Looked a fairly varied menu with a £22 value selection available which limited choice to certain items for 3 courses but included breakfast. I only had breakfast here & that was good & very comprehensive at £8.25 for all you can eat. They only have a limited number of parking spaces for blue badge holders, so parking is in the multi story next door at £5 per 24 hours. Note that this didn't allow you to come in & out within that 24 hours. You are allowed to drop off/collect your luggage right outside the back door before parking up.

We stayed here for one night as we were travelling to the Isle of Wight on the ferry the next day. This Premier Inn is excellent value for money. The staff are both helpful and welcoming, nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are large, comfortable, spotlessly clean and best of all they are quiet. The location is perfect for the city centre and the docks. We didn't eat in the restaurant but the variety of choice and the menu costs were very good value indeed and we will eat there the next time we stay. We would recommend this hotel, it's much better value than some of the more expensive hotels in Southampton and we plan to return.

Being with the kids we had booked a family room as usual for our Premier Inn stays. We arrived quite late (circa 2100hrs) after a great day at the seaside in Bournemouth, but were told on arrival that they were "just sorting out some more family rooms". On reaching our allocated room it hadn't been set up as a family room and we had to call reception who promptly sent someone to do it. Seems there had been some problem earlier on in the evening causing some upset to the room allocations. Bit disappointing as it meant the kids didn't get to bed as quickly as we'd liked, but it was all sorted out in the end. Other than this quibble there were no gripes, just the usual comfy beds and spotlessly clean room. Tip: It's about a 10 min walk from Southampton Central station, but the free CityLink bus stops at the West Quay shopping centre from where it's only a 2 min walk.

I enjoy staying at Premier Inn for a good value night in a consistent and clean environment. Something that West Quay Premier Inn excels at it is the excellent and personal customer service from it's staff. A well manned and friendly reception, efficient and friendly bar staff.

I had a couple of small issues which could have been dealt with better. My room was missing a TV Remote and had cigarette ash on the carpet (despite being a non-smoking hotel) when I phoned reception they said that someone would be up to the room right away, they didn't arrive after over an hour so I called again to request a new room. The girl on reception said they had been busy and didn't have an available room (even though this was mid-afternoon). Within minutes a member of housekeeping arrived with a TV Remote and cleared the ash - telling me to use the air on to clear the smoke smell!

The restaurant seemed to have issues dealing with everyone in a timely manner, the manager was very apologetic and obviously suffering from the efficiency of the rest of the team. Despite this when the food was served it was fine. You can also eat from the full menu in the bar, the staff there are very friendly and cooperative.

The West Quay Premier Inn is in a great location, just cross the road to the West Quay Shopping Centre or a 2 minute walk to Mayflower Park. A great location for a reasonably priced pre-cruise night from any of the docks.

Other than the above, the room was clean and in good condition. I will definitely stay here again on my regular visits to Southampton, the friendly staff really make it. Although I personally prefer a more formal hotel the night before boarding a ship.

We spent one night at this hotel, it was the evening of the 3 Queens leaving Southampton for the Jubilee. The hotel was very busy but we were still given a very warm and friendly greeting.

The room had a glimpse of the sea and one of the Queens! Big room, very comfy bed and clean bathroom. A lot of hotels could learn from the wardrobe set! Brilliant light up vanity mirror and plugs next to it. Rooms were quiet and we had a great night's sleep.

Dinner at the restaurant was good value and delicious. Full marks for the buffet breakfast at around £8. Again all the staff were brilliant and really welcoming.

The hotel is perfectly located for West Quay and the docks and seems to have been well thought out. We recently stayed at a De Vere and I would rate this Premier Inn well above it for comfort and service.
