“Absolute "Premiere"”
Reviewed 10 November 2011

This is the first time I have stayed in a Premier Inn and based on my experience here it will not be the last. Highly recommended. Room was comparable in size with North American hotels, sparkling clean and as I had booked online was a true bargain at 30 pounds. The location is walking distance to Southampton shopping district and Old Town. The staff were extremely helpful with internet problems, directions, booking taxis, etc. I purchased an internet voucher at 10 pounds for 24 hrs. and had considerable difficulty (technologically challenged) and the staff were patient and helpful. They even refunded the voucher without my asking when I somehow cleared the time after only 2 hrs. use. They were always smiling and pleasant. A real plus for a solo traveller.

Only caveat: Breakfast was an addition 9.95 which I found expensive. There were breakfast prices a 5 min. walk away from 2 to 4 pounds.

You'll be hard pushed to find any budget hotels in Winchester, but the train station next door to this one at Southampton Airport gets you to Winchester in under 10 minutes for under £5 day return (or under £3 with a Network/YP/Senior Railcard). Spotlessly clean hotel, quiet, truly excellent staff -- just about the friendliest hotel staff I've ever encountered. Extremely comfortable bed and pillows -- again, the best hotel pillows I've ever rested my head on! Also a PROPER DUVET on the bed rather than highly taut sheets under which you sprain your feet while trying to put them at 90 degrees to you legs. Both nights were some of the best nights' sleep I've ever had in hotels.

Spotless bathroom -- nothing remotely wrong with any bath/shower taps etc. Almost instant hot water with high pressure shower.

As far as it goes with the genuinely friendly and thoroughly pleasant staff attitude and the standard of the bedroom/bathroom, this is one of the best hotels I've ever stayed in -- better than some five star ones I've stayed in -- no exaggeration.

I can't comment on the food however as I didn't eat here. But I'd even go so far to tell my clients that I'd have no problem staying in a Premier Inn (if they're all like this one) rather than a Marriott or similar.

Room Tip: Even numbered rooms may be quieter as they face away from the airport

Stayed for 1 night before leaving on a cruise the next day. Very adequate parking and it was free! Our room was very clean and felt brand new. Bathroom was also nice, and i like the fact that Premier Inn supply shampoo and shower gel.
Hotel was a 5 minute drive from the town centre and right next to the airport.
The breakfast in the morning was also very nice- lots of choice cereals, fry up, pastries etc
Would definatly stay here again as some of the town centre hotels tend to be VERY expensive for what they are.

We stayed here for just one night for an early flight the next morning. It was clean and seems to be one of the newer premier Inns so for the price of the room I paid £ 35 it was a very good deal. Perfect for onward travel from the Airport.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the staff were so friendly and very helpful went out of their way to give us directions to get to different areas of Southampton. Couldn't fault the room, it was so clean and spacious. Parking very secure. Great value for money, would definitely go back again.

I chose this hotel for its proximity to the airport - it really is only 5 mins walk to the terminal.
Noted that the train station (Southampton Airport Parkway, direct service to London Waterloo) was also a few minutes walk away.

There was plenty of car parking space, even though I arrived at about 9pm. Car parking is free for the duration of your stay, but the very nice people at reception let me leave my car for an extra five hours for free.

I was checked in within seconds.

The hotel seems to be very new. All decoration and furnishings were clean and tidy.
My room was fairly large, as was the bathroom. No noise or temperature issues, and nice decor for a budget room.

I did not eat at the hotel but had a couple of drinks in the bar - it was nice enough.

I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again if I needed to be near the airport, although the fairly isolated location means it may not be suitable for a leisure trip to Southampton.

The Premier inn Southampton Airport is a good option for those looking for a one night stay.
The facilities are all that you really need just for an overnight, restaurant/ bar, pleasantly appointed rooms and easy motorway access.
Service was first rate, quick and pleasant, what more can you ask for after a day’s traveling.
