The Isle of Wight now has three Premier Inn hotels. The newest one opened on Sandown seafront in 2021 whilst the Lake/Merrie Gardens opened in 2016 and Newport Premier Inn has been there for a few years.
To avoid confusion, I'll refer to them by their proper names which are Premier Inn Sandown (Seafront), Premier Inn Sandown (Merrie Gardens) and Premier Inn Newport (Isle of Wight). They are all on the Isle of Wight but the last one includes the 'Isle of Wight' name to save people accidentally booking a week's holiday in South Wales - although I'm sure that would be lovely too.
But which is the best Premier Inn on the Isle of Wight?
If you just want the summary then we think that:
Premier Inn Sandown (Seafront)
Premier Inn Sandown (Merrie Gardens)
Premier Inn Newport (Isle of Wight)
Our Price COmparisons of Premier Inn Hotels on the ISle of Wight
For a rough idea of prices, we searched for a Friday to Monday weekend break for a couple in the cheapest room available. We searched in June 2021 and found the following price:
Three nights for two people in mid-July 2021
Late September 2021
Early October 2021
Early November 2021
Early May 2022
As you can see, there are some dates where the prices are the same or very similar at all three Isle of Wight Premier Inns. For the nearer dates, the Premier Inn Newport (Isle of Wight) tends to be the most expensive. The Premier Inn Sandown (Seafront) is the cheapest for the dates which are a long way away, which suggests to me that it has a cheaper starting price than the other two, perhaps because of the added cost of paying for parking.
