I stayed here for a few days in October 2012, as I was working in the area. I would definitely stay again. Good-sized clean room, free parking, fantastic breakfast and lovely polite reception staff. Very good value for money.

have stayed in many Premier inns and have to say i spent the three nights of this stay cold. Room smelt musty and was cold on arrival but it was late and we were tired so went to bed. Next morning the room was still cold as was the shower however after a chat with reception we were moved to another room. This room was also cold and we had to ask for another heater which we were given. The hotel corridors were also cold which is not nice when its freezing outside. Would i stay at this hotel again, in the summer maybe but never again in the winter. Also one very important point there is no lift in the hotel so make sure you dont take a heavy case !

Room Tip: avoid rooms number 10 and 72 !!!!!

Our welcome to the hotel was first class by the young lady receptionist. Very polite and helpful about our stay. The room was fine, well furnished, clean, well equipped and easily accessible on the first floor. We found thi hotel to be in a great location with frequent buses from a nearby bus stop into Christchurch and Bournemouth. Breakfast and dinner at the adjoining 'Beefeater' was very good although a contretempt between one of the waiters and the chef at dinner was a bit offputting. That said, my overall view was one of good honest value.

Super clean and comfortable room, restaurant on hand if required, about mile from town, with bus stop nearby. Quality stay without excessive price tag or put another way a budget stay but not budget feel. Great for families. Looking forward to our next stay already!

Stayed here for 2 nights and first night I didn't sleep due to the person in the next room having their phone ring throughout the night but I complained to the Night Porter who promptly told them off and also refunded me (quibble-free) £57.

The room was absolutely immaculately clean! The staff were very polite and friendly, car park was big but the furnishings were old and tired looking not to mention the towels were almost transparent due to general wear.

I will definitely be staying here again as the purpose of the visit was to see my Nan in Southbourne and the second night was only £29 - bargain!

Room Tip: Don't stay in 53 if you're a light sleeper - opposite entrance door which bangs everytime so...

We stayed at this Premier Inn for a long weekend. Everything from start to finish was extremely enjoyable. The staff were pleasant and were never without a smile on their faces, and nothing was a bother to them if you needed anything, from reception to the Beefeater, to the cleaning ladies. We dined in The Beefeater and the service and food was excellent. Our room was exceptionally clean and pleasant to relax in. The overall setting of this Premier Inn is lovely too. Christchurch East is one we will be returning to in the near future.

We stayed one night in November whilst en-route to Southampton. The hotel was easy to find and with a large car-park. The receptionist was welcoming, helpful and extremely pleasant. The room was large, spotlessly clean, airy and comfortable as one has come to expect from Premier Inn. We had dinner in the adjoining Beefeater restaurant/bar which was up to normal Beefeater standard. Not cordon-bleu but OK for the price. Our waiter was very efficient and friendly which is always a plus! One minor grumble would be the lack of ambience in the bar area which we visited later in the evening. For some reason this chain seem to find it very difficult to provide a pub type atmosphere in their bar areas. You are always aware that you are in a bar attached to a Beefeater attached to a Premier Inn, definitely NOT a pub! The prices are a bit steep and the service efficient, but with none of the friendly enthusiasm shown by the hotel reception and restaurant staff. If this could have been improved upon I would have given 5 stars! Overall though, I would recommend.
