AN £8.2m hotel will bring 30 new jobs to the area.

A new Premier Inn, next to the Langstone roundabout off the A27, opens on Thursday.

The hotel has 82 bedrooms.

Louisa Colquhoun, operations manager for Premier Inn in the Portsmouth area, said: ‘We’re looking forward to welcoming guests to the city of Portsmouth and to spread the word of all that it has to offer.

‘Positioned in a fantastic location, the hotel will give guests everything they need to explore the area.’

The hotel has also employed three apprentices who have come from varying backgrounds.
