Overnight stay on business. Efficient check in. Room was clean and well presented with fan running to help keep it cool. Reasonable nights sleep, I like the different choice of pillows! I took a continental breakfast in the nearby Smugglers Inn.

I have just returned from a weekend break at this Premier Inn and found it to be welcoming and a comfortable hotel. The staff were very helpful and attentive. The breakfast was provided at the adjoining Beefeater restaurant and it was very good indeed. Great variety catering for all requirements. It is always a good sign when the cooked breakfast arrives and is hot. We also ate there in the evening but found the menu not extensive enough so limited as to what to eat. The food when it came was OK but not value for money in my opinion. We stayed at this hotel thinking it would be in the New Forest but that was not the case. Easy access to Bournemouth and fairly quiet even though it is on a dual carriageway. Good to have the Quiet Night Guarantee as it gives you a little peace of mind. With Premier Inn you get what you pay for so don't expect 4 star treatment. I would recommend this hotel.

We stayed twice at this hotel on our way to and from Poole for the ferry.
The room was clean and had a double and a single bed. Strangely it only had a single very uncomfortable kitchen type chair to sit on. We did ask for something else but were told that nothing was available.
On our first visit we had a room at the front which had a little traffic noise during the night. On our return we asked for one at the back which looked out onto some woodland and was virtually silent.
Next door is a Beefeater restaurant, a Macdonalds is just down the road and a couple of minutes away is a Sainsburys with cheap petrol.
Overall we were happy with our stay but it would be nice to be able to sit down!

Clean, tidy and much quieter than I had expected. Friendly staff on the front desk both times I've stayed, happy to answer questions and engage in conversation. Staff in the restaurant alongside could be a little more friendly but to be fair they were very busy so clipped manner could be a reflection of that. Overall, this hotel is good value, a friendly place and provides a decent, quiet night's sleep.

No fuss, no problems, fab breakfast. Nice pub restaurant next door. Good access to roads. Friendly staff, very helpful. Breakfast was superb, amazing selection of cereal, fruit, yogurt, pastries, toast, crumpets and as much cooked breakfast as you could eat.

My sister and I took our disabled mother away for a few days and although she was in a 'disabled' room, the only thing different to our twin room was the fact that the bath was lower - Premier Inn, please understand that some disabled people cannot step over a bath at all!! My mother has limited walking ability but I don't know how a wheelchair user would have a shower... what it needs is a wet room in the disabled bathrooms. As that is my only 'complaint', my thanks goes to Rob who made our stay very pleasant and a thank you goes to Kirsty in the restaurant who was very attentive throughout. I would definitely recommend this hotel!

Arrive late on Friday night to be greeted by duty Manager Rob. Rob was very helpful, welcoming and friendly. We stayed at this Premier Inn as it was close to friends we were visiting. The room was clean and comfortable, the staff pleasant and helpful. What more could you ask for well done to Rob and his team.
