The address worried us - High Street, Portsmouth - difficult parking, lots of jolly sailors and other late night revellers perhaps. In fact after the Luftwaffe devastated this part of the city the commercial centre was rebuilt elsewhere. High Street is almost a quiet residential street and the 'resident's' parking permit provided by the hotel worked well. It is obviously... More

Stayed here for 1 night to visit Historic Dockyards. It was cheap and I wasn't expecting all that much. I have to say I was very impressed by the friendly staff and the attention to detail in the maps, guides and leaflets. Very helpful and above and beyond other places I have stayed. The room was just the job, clean,... More

I've nothing bad to say about this hotel. It's located within a fifteen minute walk from Gunwarf Quays, The Dockyard, Pier and Railyway Station. Upon arriving at the hotel, the receptionist was very friendly, and the whole checking in and out process was very quick and simple compared to a lot of other hotels. We were given two keys. One...

Very nice room. Very friendly and helpful staff. Perfect location for Gun Warf Keys and the Isle of Wight ferry. Very reasonable price. En suite bathroom with shower. Hairdryer, iron and ironing board provided. Breakfast not provided but we were leaving early so it didn't matter, also you can get a discount at a nearby café.

We booked two rooms - a family room and a double room. Since the main hotel was full, the double room was in a cottage located right at the back of the main hotel. The family room was very spacious with large windows, a double bed and a single bed. The room in the cottage was lovely but since it... More

Me, mom and brother were there for his graduation and we got the family room. Suprisingly comfortable for 3 adults, with each having our own side of bed. The place was clean and the beds are comfortable. And quiet because family rooms are at a separate cottage than the bar itself. Nearest shopping area, Gunwharf Quay was only 5min walk... More

We were in the annex at the rear of the Pub. I looks like a converted garage, the compact on suite is at the back of the room and you have direct access onto the street where we had parked. The room was modern clean and well laid out to make use of the space. It was perfect for what... More
