“Excellent hotel, great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2013

We stayed for one night at this hotel in November 2013. This hotel is ideally located for Christchurch, Bournemouth, Avon Beach and the New Forest and surrounding area. The hotel has a huge car park that is free, with a very good Beefeater Restaurant next door. Our check in was very smooth and efficient. One of our party had forgotten their toothbrush and were give a complimetary pack containing everything they required. The room was very clean, light and airy with easy to use heating and lighting controls. The bed was very large, very comfortable with extra pillows. The bathroom was immaculately clean, plenty of towels, great power shower, huge mirror with very bright low voltage lights. We ate in the Beefeater Restaurant which had a lovely decor and atmosphere. The service was excellent, the food was extremely tasty, good portion sizes and served piping hot at reasonable prices. We had a great nights sleep in a very comfortable warm and quiet room. I had booked in advance on the Premier Inn Website and got a very good rate. We were all delighted with our visit and will definitely stay again

We have recently just spent two night s at the Somerford Premier Inn at Christchurch in Dorset. This was not our first time there and it will not be our last. The hotel is in a great position for travelling around the area and all the local amenities. It is a very comfortable hotel and all the staff are very helpful. I would recommend this hotel to anyone thinking of staying in this area.

Stayed on a Saturday night for £39. Have used this hotel numerous times, but last stay was about 2 years ago.
Although one of the older properties the room was warm, clean, and well kept. Location wise, not much other than a Sainsburys and KFC within walking distance, although there is a bus stop outside the hotel if you don't want to use a car. Taxi to Christchurch just Nader £10.
Receptionist was polite and efficient, and extra coffee and milk for the room is never a problem.
As usual with Premier Inn, there is an attached pub for meals but cannot comment as we ate elsewhere.
Good value for money.

Clean, tidy, comfortable and value for money for a one night stopover. .
In a nice quiet location with Beefeater next door and retail parks across the road.
Staff in both the Premier Inn and Beefeater were very pleasant and food was standard Beefeater Fayre. Breakfast was all you could eat buffet with a wide range of cereals, breads, pastries and a full English if required.
Happy to visit again and would recommend for a no frills stay.

I was looking for a convenient overnight stay in the Christchurch area. This easily sufficed.

The room was a decent size, the bed comfortable and the facilities more than adequate. The receptionist was pleasant and helpful.

Breakfast was good - set me up for the day.

A premier Inn is always good value.

Recently stayed hear for 2 nights, the place is looking old and worn. Although relatively clean the carpets/furniture and towels are worn, bathroom small with sealant beginning to go off. Glad we didn't pay full price.
We stayed on a meal deal basis but was disappointed, selection for evening meal was disappointing, service was average and the beefeater is looking as dated as the hotel. The hot breakfast was not buffet service as advertised, hot food was available by order and it was ok, no fresh Costa on offer, instead tea/coffee was available from flasks.
We will give this one a miss in future.
