Last stayed here about 24 years ago and parts of it have not changed a bit: the tiny, old fashioned lift, stained carpets on certain floors and the manner of some of the breakfast staff, but the price, being ex Navy and there for a reunion, it suited my needs perfectly. I would not, however, stay here if travelling with... More

When deciding whether to stay at the Royal Maritime Club, it is important to understand the history of the place: http://www.royalmaritimeclub.co.uk/our-history If you are expecting a typical hotel experience, go someplace else. The Club is not a typical hotel, and shouldn't be judged by those standards. It is not a retro experience, either; it is instead "authentic." That means you... More

We booked an upgraded room and we were very glad we did as the hotel is very much in need of a major face lift. Housekeeping could certainly do with a big kick up the bum, you could see the dust on the skirting boards and bed head. The communal rooms are well past dated they are positivley shabby. The... More

The Royal Maritime Cub is exactly that 'A Club'. We found the Rooms and Foyer a bit dated but we thought that it added to the interesting history of the Royal. The location is very good with a 5 minute walk to the Docklands Museum.The rooms were clean and the Breakfast had a nice selection. The parking can be a... More

Hotel is ok, somewhat tired but I understand it is under going a refurb. Room was dated and smells funny but it is clean and has everything I need for a short trip. Breakfast- food lovely, staff RUDE! 6 members of staff just standing watching you eat is intimidating. 2 older ladies lack all understanding of hospitality, unable to smile... More

We stayed here for one night; had problems parking, as we didn't arrive until after 9 pm, the car park opposite was closed, the hotel only offers a few parking places at the front and side drove around for a while looking for somewhere nearby, none of the smaller roads offer parking as residential and would need a resident parking...

The Hotel is easy to find and parking was easy (however this was more luck than judgement) lovely greeting and quick booking in process, I was not keen on paying prior to staying as this is a bit odd for a hotel, but the staff were friendly and the room pleasant enough, a good size and clean, we eat in...

We booked this bed and breakfast for Saturday night over the bank holiday and at the price we paid expected a half decent room and food. This was not the case. We paid on arrival so before seeing our room as we were going out for the day and came back and were allowed in to the room at around... More

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
