Once again an excellent stay in a great hotel with a great room. Clean well presented and with everything you could want. Staff on hand 24/7 to boot. My problem however is meal times and breakfast in particular. Myself and my husband pre-booked and paid for our breakfasts but were still forced to join a very long queue of people... More

This first part is my personal experience only, ( my rant) and is just information to people with mobility problems i.e. Wheelchairs etc , I suggest you contact the hotel before arriving . We use premiere inns all the time and this is the first time we have encountered this problem. We Arrived to find that we had to carry... More

A last minute trip arose to see my friends in Dorset. Al decided to stay in a hotel for a change and have a night out in Christchurch Upon arrival, can only be described as a Matron of a receptionist. Spoke to us like we were teenagers.(we are all in our late 40's).Spoke to us condescendingly and abruptly. Rooms basic... More

The bed was fine but the noise was the issue!! Woke up many time in the night hearing a baby crying and early in the morning a... More

Stayed here for 1 night as a base for Bournemouth. We were hardly in the room only to sleep but found the room very hot. There were 3 fans in the room but didn't help much! There was a view of scaffolding out the window and the reception / corridor smelt like damp. Don't think we would return

This is the worst Premier Inn I have stayed in three years of using the chain for business and pleasure trips. There were light bulbs out in the room making it dingy and dismal. But at least it made it difficult to see the dirty, well worn carpet. The bathroom smelled of damp decayed drains. We booked a table for... More

We stayed 17th-20th August. Room was clean and bed very comfortable. We discovered on arrival they are having extensive building work which led to us overlooking a building site, scaffolding and all. This didn't overly bother us, it for us is just a room to sleep in anyway, but might have put others off. Would have been better to make... More

Having stayed at umpteen Premier Inns in the past and never been disappointed we expected the standards at Christchurch East to be at least equivalent, however we were sadly mistaken! The hotel had a very tired feeling about it and there was definitely a musty and stale smell around the place particularly in the adjoining pub/restaurant so much so that... More

Fortunately we only stayed the one night but it is not to the usual standard of Premier Inn locations which we have normally found to be excellent. The bar area is in need of an clean up as is the restaurant, we normally sit and enjoy some drinks but this area is not that inviting.
