The Royal Maritime club is located within a 2 minute walk of the Historic dockyard and 5 minutes from Portsmouth Harbour Rail station and Gunwharf Quays, so is perfect for sightseeing or shopping There is free parking provided but it is on a first come first served basis. As you would expect it has a strong naval theme but has... More

When you arrive at the entrance, first impressions are good. the grtand exterior gives way to a naval themed lobby. The receptionist calls you sir (good pionter) and you are given an electronic key card. When you arrive at the lift you are met with your first dissappointment. It is a tiny capsual from the 80's with doors that you... More

We stayed here twice in 10 days, before and after our trip around the IOW. We were not able to check in when we arrived at 1145 but were able to park and leave our bags in reception. We had a family room in the west wing both times which were ideal - we preferred G2. The family set up... More

We just had one night, booked because of location very close to Historic Dockyard. The staff were very "motorcycle friendly" and let us park in the secure staff carpark at the back. The room wasn't large but very quiet at night (at back of hotel). Unusual not to have a telephone in room (but not too far to go to... More

It is not a good hotel. But if you want a good price near the ferry and near the restaurants and bars that is clean and friendly then this is the place. The rooms can be warm, the shower does get you wet, just. We had to leave at 06.00 for the ferry to Le Havre and they offered us... More

I have an affinity with the Club, as a life member signed up, when it was previously the Royal Sailors Home Club. We have just returned from a two nights stay, my first revisit in 20yrs. The Club is perfectly situated for the Historic Dockyard, Gun-wharf Quays, railway & bus stations, all of which are within a 5 or so... More

We were booked in here via work for a 2 night stay, looked ok from the brief look of a picture I managed on the way to Portsmouth and on arrival I thought nothing of it, from the outside looked ok and in a good location, took us 10 or 15 minutes to park and this is a major issue... More

Arrived at the hotel and there was nowhere to park, eventually located an underground car park across the road (wasn't signposted on the way in) and parked there at £10 per 24 hours. On discussing with the car park attendant he advised that the hotel would stamp the parking ticket and we would get it half price - Result! Hotel... More
