“Good location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 September 2013

Usual Premier Inn standard e.g. No frills but clean and comfy. Friendly and helpful staff. Handy location if you are visiting Farnborough Aerospace Centre. Have stayed here a number of times and will continue to do so.

This was the nearest Premier Inn to Portsmouth I could get when I made the booking several months ago. However, it's only a comfortable hour's journey from the Ferry Terminal and it shortened our journey north the following morning, as it has good access to the M3 motorway.
The receptionist was extremely friendly and helpful and check-in was silky smooth.
Our room was clean and up to the usual Premier Inn standard and we had a very good night's sleep.
We used the adjoining Brewer's Fayre for our evening meal, which was perfectly adequate. Again, very friendly and attentive staff.
We opted for the full breakfast the following morning and were very pleased with the choice and the quality; well worth paying the little bit extra instead of having the Continental breakfast.
Would we stay there again? Absolutely.

Room Tip: We had room 50 on the first floor. It's a bit of a hike from reception, but was so incredibly qu...

I stayed here with my parents for 2 nights. We booked 2 double rooms in one online transaction.

Location wise it was perfect for us. Just a few minutes drive from fleet & church crookham where the family we were visiting lives. It had plenty of parking and theres a brewers fayre on sure and a supermarket and another restaurant a 2 minute drive away.

The breakfast in the brewers fayre was good and the options were good.

The rooms were clean, spacious, comfortable,and had almost everything you'd want. The bathrooms were clean and had good baths with good overhead showers.

The issues were the following:
1) the hotel operates a system of putting single women ( Miss's) upstairsfor safety all, as well as automatic allocation system. Now I'm not sure this is a chain thing or a one off, and in principal I agree with it. My issue was that I was upstairs as far as possible from reception whilst my parents were downstairs. Not a major thing but a little inconvenient. We asked for this to be rectified at check in ( late evening) and it wasn't possible.

2) no room phones, despite a card telling you to use it to contact reception of there are issues and the presence of a telephone point. Now usually I wouldn't use one anyway except because my parents were downstairs to organise meeting or to share info. Also if ladies are upstairs for safety yet far from reception surely a phone is a useful thing?!?

3) in my parents room despite knowing there would be two people in the room they only put 1 bath towel In the room.

And the downstairs room was noisy at times with heavy footed people upstairs and shouting outside.

Staff were helpful and in the morning the same lady was on reception with the manager and they did move my parents upstairs and rectify the towel issue. The receptionist acknowledged these were not new complaints and the manager apologised and said they had training issues.

Despite these small issues we would stay here again

My laptop Wifi wasn't strong enough to see the Premier Inn hotspot so they moved me to an equal room closer to the main hub. Fantastic service if you ask me.

The service was brilliant and the bed was amazingly comfortable.

Will use Premier Inn in the future.

We recently stayed here with our 4 children and found it absolutely brilliant. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Rooms were clean and comfortable. The restaurant offered really good value for money with a lovely garden for the children to play in. We would definitely stay here again.

An older premier inn but still perfectly good for a short stay. Clean and spacious with everything uou needed. The staff in the restaurant next door were amazing keeping breakfasts and evening meals running smoothly. Would use again if attending carfest again. Thanks
