We stayed on Good Friday for one night because we had a 6am ferry from Poole the next morning and couldn't face driving through the night.
We arrived about 3pm and found a parking space without a problem - I guess we were one of the lucky ones - although there was parking on the road quite close to the hotel and reception staff helpfully gave us a map showing where we could park if the car park was full.
Our room was cosy to say the least. It was made up for 3 even though our booking was for 2 adults and 2 children. As we were going out we asked at reception if they could make up the fourth bed and put some extra towels in the room. We got back about 7pm and the room was exactly as we had left it. After calling reception again they sent a chambermaid up. She managed to get the fourth bed out from under the double but with 4 beds you couldn't actually get
into the beds without climbing over them. When I asked her if she was going to leave it like that she asked if we were unhappy with our room. I said I was and she informed me that the hotel was full so we would have to make the best of it. We rearranged the furniture ourselves so we could actually get to all of the beds and then had an early night as we had a 4.30am start.
In the end we slept pretty well and headed off the Poole for the ferry next morning.
I would guess that being Easter weekend the family rooms had been overbooked and we ended up with a room which would be perfectly acceptable for 2 or 3 persons but not 4. Not what we expect of a Premier Inn!
Other than the bedroom size the hotel is in a great location, just 10 minutes walk from the Town Centre, and in pretty good condition. As with all Premier Inns there is no shaver socket in the bathroom, but I am getting used to that now and pack a 2-pin adaptor.
If you are heading for an early ferry Poole Harbour is about 10 minutes drive at 4.30am.
