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

I stayed here last more than 25 years ago and my standards are somewhat higher than back then,so having read the reviews on here, ensured i booked a renovated superior room. We took the small lift up one a time (only room for 1 pax plus... More

Well located and walking distance to main attractions. Room was clean and comfortable. Gym was not operating at the time we were there. Breakfast was excellent and the staff were all very friendly. Would not hesitate to anyone to stay if they are into the history of the dockyards or the navy.

We were visiting the Dockyard and decided on the Royal Maritime Club for its location a few yards away. The rooms were probably better than we expected and the staff were charming. The breakfast was more than adequate. I would definitely stay in this hotel again.

Three day stay with family members. One with restricted mobility was helpfully located in a ground floor bedroom. The main entrance lobby and ground floor public areas are rather gloomy 1950's decor . A rickety lift whisked us to the second floor, where we found our well appointed room. The lack of air condiioning meant that I had to leave... More

On attending the annual reunion of HMS Hood, this venue proved to have a chef and serving staff who provided an excellent service and hot well prepared and cooked food. Special dietary needs were very well served and the individual was felt to not be 'different ' from the rest of us. The accommodation is also very clean and comfortable... More

Stayed here for 2 nights to attend a wedding nearby. I think we got a refurbished room because it was clean, the bed was comfy, and the fittings looked fresh and new. This is the quietest hotel I have ever stated in! We never heard other guests moving about, talking in corridors etc, so we slept well both nights. There... More
