“Premier Inn close to A35”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

This is on the edge of Christchurch, next to Beefeater. Also walking distance from large Sainsbury's supermarket, KFC and 5 mins walk from Toby Carvery.
Typical Premier Inn room, we had one facing the rear carpark so it was very quiet.
Good value if you prepay and get one of their offers.

Lenny obviously didn't stay in this one! ? Up until now we have always been great "fans" of the Premier Inn. Premier it certainly isn't in fact it would struggle to make the third division of hotels. Having stayed in a number of their inns we were quite happy to book based on this and their reputation, clearly a mistake as we wonder if this one was just given a quick make over from previously being one of the more budget chains? The room smelled damp and had water stains on the bathroom ceiling, with a poor shower and weak extractor fan (it says keep the door closed but if you do you can't see the mirror etc as the fan isn't up to it); poorly furnished; over firm bed; fraying carpet bedroom /bathroom and rough repair to the bathroom door handle keep. Overall just not up to standard and spoiled a weekend away. The outside was scruffy, especially the side entrance (which we really had to use as the corridors from reception were so long inside) which was decorated by a discarded blackened mattress and carts of laundry. The noise from the skate park next door didn't help as we were trying to get some fresh air into the room through the limited opening window. Thank goodness we only booked for one night.

Reading other reviews makes me wonder if there are different standards of room in this complex?

Room Tip: Cannot really say as we spent as little time as possible declining breakfast preferring to go to Sai...

We were staying prior to travelling abroad, booked room with meal deal package for two. Room was spotless and in a very quiet part of the hotel, staff friendly and efficient.

Choice of meal deal food extensive, huge choice at breakfast.

Best 2 night break we`ve had....very comfortable,clean,modern and friendly. An excellent base to explore local area and attached to a very good Beefeater. If we were to go again would definitely stop here.again.

Good location, near beach, quay, town and supermarket across the road.
Plenty of parking and bus stop near the hotel.
We had continental breakfasts as it was cheaper and good, plenty of choice; cereals, lots of fruit, yogurt, crumpets, croissants and toast.
The Somerford Beefeater Restaurant and Pub attached to hotel, very handy.
All clean, comfortable and helpful staff.

Good location, safe parking, quiet comfortable room, pleasant staff, I use this Premier Inn every year and will use it again in the future. Handy supermarket over the road if you want to snack, and pub and eating facilities on site.

I have recently returned from 3 nights stay at this Premier Inn. It is located in the outskirts of Christchurch around 7 miles from Bournemouth. It has a car park so ideal for those travelling by car. There is a bus stop near the hotel for travel into Bournemouth. The hotel is a bit old fashioned but very clean. The bed was comfrotable, shower was good. Staff were fine too. There is a beefeater restaurant next door. I did not eat any meals there. Near the hotel there's both Sainsburys and Lidl so ideal if you run short of anything. All in all a good stay and will return in the future.
