This hotel is centrally located and also offered free parking. It is a little tired and that is being deakt with, we had a rather unispiring room but it was clean and the bed very comfy. Breakfast was good lots of hot choices and some cook to order choices.

Been here for a couple of functions, Wedding receptions etc. Nice interior design and clean. Food I've had there has been of a good standard, nothing extravagant but well cooked, tasty and hot. Staff welcoming and helpful. Can't say anything about the rooms having never stayed a night but if it is to the standard of the above then it... More

Hotel is in a great location for the Historic Dockyard, Gunwarf Quays and Old Portsmouth. Very limited parking but Historic Dockyard car park is just opposite with prefferential rate (£5 for 24 hours) for RMC residents. Tip: Get ticket stamped at hotel and pay at car park office not at the machine. The public rooms in the hotel are quite... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night, to attend a dinner on HMS Victory. The location cannot be bettered, five minutes from the Historic Naval Dockyard, less than 10 to Gunwharf Quays shopping area. Car parking - not much right outside the hotel, but there is a covered car park immediately opposite and if you get your ticket stamped... More

Just had a 3 night stay at rmc while my husband is on a course in Portsmouth. We had a very good rate as he is currently serving forces so automatically become members. We had dinner as part of the room rate for the first night, and I have to say was quite surprised at how good it was as... More

Booked in for a night as location was good, Right near Gunwharf. Booked in and was given directions through the maze of halls/Corridors to our room. The further in you get the worse the decor gets too. The room was very basic no pictures on the wall to brighten it up. Burned iron marks on the carpett. Bed was herrendous... More

Three brothers on their annual trip. Portsmouth was a city we'd not visited before. The hotel is extremely well located within walking distance of the historic dockyard. It's dated but clean. The pool was out of action the three days we were there. The breakfast was acceptable and what one would expect. The rooms were comfortable enough and quiet too.... More

Had a very warm welcome from the reception staff on check in, Website showed plush rooms, but unfortunately we were given one of the old and dated rooms yet to be updated. Lift (Scary) and hallways also badly in need of makeover. Breakfast was amazing. Would stay again if given a room in the new bit. (Advise to check on... More

The highlight is the location, it is ideal, at the heart of the Historic Dockyard. I stayed only one night, the hotel is OK, the room was a bit small but comfy. The breakfast was average, nothing extraordinary. I don't think I would stay here again.

Nice hotel room very clean and tidy. Bed was great no problem in getting off to sleep. Ideal position for the Dockyards and Gun Wharf. Breakfast was excellent. Did not use the pool but must say it looked nice. A little dated but has the feel of a seamans home away from home and I liked that
