Nothing particularly outstanding here, just the usual clean, comfortable and well-appointed room that you expect fro Premier Inn. Everything works, you sleep well, and it's pretty reasonable value for money for what you get.
One thing standing out here though was the friendliness of the staff on the reception - always a cheery greeting and a conversation with a smile when we were arriving at, or leaving, the hotel. Small gestures of course, but appreciated, makes people feel welcome at what can be quite an impersonal chain given it's size. They genuinely seemed to care that people staying there were happy.
Convenient for Christchurch rail station, just a 5 minute walk, and the main town centre is no more than a 10 minute walk. You can walk to Southbourne beach from here in about 1/2 hour - 40 minutes, so all in all a good base for seeing a lovely part of Dorset.More
