New Premier Inn Brings £11.5 Million Investment to Isle of Wight Sandown

19 Jan 2016 Estate

Premier Inn opened its brand new Isle of Wight Sandown (Merrie Gardens) Hotel on 16th January 2016. This new property will contribute over £11.5 million to the local economy whilst generating 29 new year round jobs for the residents of Sandown and the surrounding area.

The brand new 80 bedroom hotel will be located in the heart of the town, within walking distance from all the local amenities and attractions. As well as being known for its golden sandy beach, Sandown is a traditional British Seafront town with a pier.  The main town beach stretches all the way along the Esplanade where it meets with Yaverland Beach, regarded as one of the Isle of Wight’s best beaches and is very popular for watersports. If travelling with kids, a visit to the interactive Dinosaur Museum as well as the Zoo housed in an old fort are must-see attractions.

The new Premier Inn Isle of Wight Sandown (Merrie Gardens) offers visitors the perfect base from which to explore all that the town and surrounding area has to offer – it also offers a great nights sleep at the end of a busy day or the night before an important meeting.  The hotel has a breakfast, snack and dinner menu for guests at reasonable prices making it a truly great place to stay.

Joni Cox, Operations Manager for Premier Inn Isle of Wight Sandown, comments: “We are looking forward to welcoming guests to the town of Sandown and to spread the word of all that it has to offer. With our luxurious Hypnos beds, we want guests to have a good night’s sleep so that they can Wake up Wonderful for the day ahead. Positioned in a fantastic location, within walking distance to Sandown town centre and a short drive to the beach, the hotel will give guests everything they need to explore the area! “

With over 700 hotels nationwide, Premier Inn is the UK’s largest hotel chain, at more locations than any other hotel chain in the UK with rooms starting at £35 for a family room for four. To find out participating hotels where the £35 room offer is available visit
