There are two wings, and we were staying in the old wing (The West Wing). My brother stayed in the new wing and his room was much more modern & cleaner than my room. My room was just next to the corridor's door and I can hear the footsteps & door opening/ closing sounds very clearly (from 11pm to 6am)....No... More

We stayed here on a Saturday night - visiting Portsmouth for no reason in particular - and were very pleased with its location (which can't be bettered) and its lobby & interior. The breakfast was excellent and the hotel place was beautifully clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Everything worked as it should and on the whole it... More

Stayed here for one night while visiting the Historic Dockyard area. Pros: 1. It would be hard to find a hotel that is in a better location in relation to the Historic Dockyard. It's literally just down the street. 2. Friendly staff. 3. Good full english breakfast included. Cons: 1. No air-conditioning, so the hotel (especially the corridors) smells old... More

I take my 89 year old father down to Portsmouth every year for his ship' reunion (HMS Indefatigable). The event is held at The Royal Maritime Club so we always stay here. The Club is like an old fashioned hotel with large entrance foyer with the restaurant and bar off each side. Rooms seem to be all over the place... More

We stayed in this hotel for 1 night while attending a wedding at the docks. Location is superb and is the only reason we would use this hotel again. Room was adequate for 1 nights sleep. The bathroom was a disgrace. A blocked sink which I am convinced the hotel must have been aware of and a shower which frankly... More

Beware of expecting a hotel. This is a club with hotel style rooms. The staff are very friendly but once you leave the spacious entrance and reception area be prepared for a more dingy experience . That said, the location of the club is great for exploring Portsmouth marina and the maritime museum. The pool is small and cloudy. Breakfast... More

We took the small lift up one a time (only room for 1 pax plus... More
