We were greeted by a very friendly and helpful lady. It was all nice and clean and very nicely decorated. Beautiful little en suite shower. Very comfortable bed. Comfortable sized room for a family, with fold up beds for the children to sleep in. Nice big dressing table, wifi, tea and coffee facilities. Very close to the city centre attractions.... More

I stayed on 11th August 2014 with the intention of being in Portsmouth for 4 days trying different hotels each night. So that I could choose one for the future.

First impression was of a very helpful lady at reception, she greeted us with a smile and was keen to make sure we had everything we needed for our stay - couldn't have been more helpful. The rooms are quite small, but worth bearing in mind you are paying a lot less than hotels in the same area. Whilst small,... More

We stayed in a cozy small double room on the top floor with a good size bathroom and compact shower, everything was very clean and there was coffee/tea facility in the room. Staff was friendly and helpful. There is wi-fi only at the reception area or at the pub. The corridor floor was a bit noisily and I could hear... More

We had stayed here a couple of times in the past, both times in the "Garage & House" at the rear of the pub and on the ground floor. Both times the rooms were lovely and quiet which suited us perfectly, as we live in a very rural, (quiet), area of Norfolk. We booked this trip back in January 2014,... More

Its an above the average hotel on the top of a pub. You are close to the centre and the price is not to high. Of course you have shared bathroom, but in total it is totally okay as a stay in Portsmouth.

Booked in on-line at the last minute as we needed somewhere to stay and we were not disappointed. The location was within easy walking distance of all of the main areas to visit. The price was a lot less than the nearest competitor and more than made up for the short walk to get a breakfast at a lovely place... More

We stayed here in June, after finding that even the "budget" hotel chains were charging almost £100 per night. I would say it's fairly typical for Pub accommodation - but cleaner than most. On check-in we discovered that the room we'd been allocated was on the third floor, up several sets of very narrow stairs. However, when I explained that... More
