Just had 2 nights there. Location is good, parking in residential area is not a problem, reception staff on book in were friendly and helpful, room was clean and as suggested on here asked for a room at the back for quiet. However, first morning someone left really early banging the door and then second night people upstairs really noisy,... More

Dear Madam, I am really sorry to hear that you had a disappointing stay in our hotel. Unfortunately, we do not have any influence over people making noises in their rooms and there is nothing we can do unless this is an ongoing issue in which case our duty manager would then take the appropriate action. The pub in the... More

Really friendly people, very welcoming. Brilliant for short stays, supplies everything you need. No breakfast, but has free maps to nearest cafés. On day of departure, you can leave your bags in office. Comfy beds, and has hangers in room. Great overall!!!!

Very friendly lady at reception who was quick at resolving our issue and extremely helpful. Warm and comfortable room. Only issue was a loose shower head, apart from this I would definitely visit again if in the area.

This was a nice friendly visit. We stayed in the back building for 5 days with lots of luggage. It's more suitable for one or two nights. The pub in front offered very good meals which could be brought to the room. The room was very clean, the staff was friendly and the location was excellent. Within walking distance to... More

We stayed for two nights on 28/29th August 2014 . We wanted somewhere that was walking distance to the main Old Portsmouth sights - this was a perfect choice - only 14 minutes walk to the Historic Dockyard. Very friendly service at reception, helpful, informative and very approachable. There are information sheets there for the main Portsmouth sights and very... More

I visited the restaurant on a Groupon offer in Aug along with 3 friends. The pub has been refurbished and had a nice atmosphere. We had a 2 course meal for 4 at £35, which was delicious and ample in portions to say in the least. Would pay full price as it was such good quality and quantity.

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
