My husband and I stayed in the Luella Cherry room for 1 night on the 7th of April. Hotel is immaculate, service is immaculate. So relaxing and peaceful. Breakfast the next morning was amazing, so much to choose from and was delicious. Will definately be back.

Stayed here for a midweek break to visit the attractions of Portsmouth. The hotel is very modern with nice touches and served an excellent breakfast. The hotel is not located that close to the Gunwharf Quays and it would be a long walk if you didn't want to drive but the local taxi service was very prompt and quite reasonable.... More

My Wife and I stayed here on the weekend of the 28th March 14. On first impressions this was not the usual type of Hotel we would normally book. By that I mean an international chain with a flashy entrance that often is not matched by service. On arrival however we could tell immediately that this was whilst different, would... More
