Booked in here at the last minute as need to stay somewhere in Southampton for work. The hotel is adjacent to the West Quay Shopping centre so it can't get more convenient than that if you want to shopping and easy dining options. I parked in the West Quay car park and Premier Inn will validate your parking pass so that you don't pay more than £5.00 per 24 hours. This was much better than the £10 the adjacent parking lot wants for 24 hours parking.
There's no real reception however an attendant was very happy to help me operate the kiosk so that I could check in and get my room key. It was quite efficient and straightforward. The hotel was clean and my room was decent. It is rather new so it has that going for it, by default. Double bed, coffee and tea facilities, desk, tv, clean bathroom, surprisingly nice towels - for £73 a night I couldn't complain. There is a bar and restaurant on site as well and the ambience was better than expected in both of these facilities.
When I checked in they mentioned that if I have any problems press the fix it button on the phone. They failed to mention that to use the phone (even to 'fix it') you have put in your payment details and it will cost you 10p per minute. There is no wake up call option either, so bring your alarm clock! I can imagine if you have any serious problem whereby you need someone to help it might be difficult to get quick service purely due to the very self efficient setup they have. That would be reflective of the style of hotel though, not this particular branch.
On business? Short stay? I would recommend this hotel as it ticked all the boxes. There's probably not much else you could expect for the money. It's no frills - but sometimes that is all you need.
