Booked via Booking.com what a little gem, we have stayed in Andover 5 times this year at different hotels and this is by far my favourite now.

We stayed here whilst visiting friends. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The room we had was cosy but well furnished and great for a one night stay. They did have bigger rooms from the looks of things.

We stayed one night and, having read other reviews, we were looking forward to our stay. The room was very tiny and overlooked the fire escape and a disused building. It was also noisy as the passage below our room was the main thoroughfare to the public car park. The bathroom was equally tiny and I'm not sure how providing... More

This understated hotel in the centre of Andover is popular and advance booking well ahead is advisable. Good points: Clean, simply furnished, good hospitality tray with bottles of water and fresh fruit (note that, Premier Inn?), bright and cheerful breakfast room without musak, freshly cooked omelettes to order.
