Small room with sink in room. Hard bed and thin pillow. Staff ignorant. No car parking. Lift out of order. Next to Portsmouth FC. Not value for money at all. With 3 people in the room, couldn't move. No storage or hairdryer. Wifi dropped in and out.

The hotel is easy to find and in a reasonable location to get to the city centre and Southsea. The staff are helpful and the was enough to eat for breakfast. The room was plenty big enough for 3 but the bed...... far too hard, the staff gave us duvets to lie on. This hotel would be greatly improved if... More

This hotel is as it says a Buget Hotel. Rooms are on the small size and the bathroom can accomadted 1 person in there at a time. That being said it was clean, tidy and well presented. Staff were friendly and happy to help. Location is ideal for reaching Portsmouth centre.

I booked a triple room for my family visiting the university Wednesday/Thursday this week. It was the only hotel I could find that could accommodate 3 adults in one room - king sized bed with full sized bunk bed over. The room itself was basic (it is a budget hotel after all), clean bedding, adequate clean bathroom facilities (shower was... More

I stay here in December, it was cold outside and cold in my room. There was no carpet on the floor which made it feel even colder. The room was OK and the power shower was really nice. I had a view over Fratton Park, shame there was no match on. Breakfast was satisfactory, and the staff where helpful.

it is what is says - Ibis Budget - that said, if you need a cheap place to stay for a night, it is good. Efficient, clean, reasonably comfortable and very good value. I wouldn't want an extended stay, but for an overnight its fine.

Hotel and room were clean. Staff were very polite and helpful. Yes it is basic but OK for an overnight. Only downside were the atrocious pillows. If you are going to stay here I would suggest that you take your own. Very close by you have Mcdonalds, Subway and KFC plus a useful little mini mart which is cheaper than... More

This hotel is very basic. The hotel seems to be relatively new and so is very clean. Beds were firm but comfortable. Although the hotel is not very close to the centre of Portsmouth, the train station is very close, and we walked into the harbour twice, which at a decent pace only takes 45-50 minutes. The pillows were absolutely... More

Thank you for taking the time to provide us feedback after your recent stay. Tea coffee making facilities are not available in any Ibis Budget Hotel. However there is a coffee machine in the lobby which is available 24/7. I am sorry if you found the pillows too thin. May I take this opportunity to inform you that additional pillows... More

Typical simple clean accommodation typical of this sort of establishment. Lacked any secure parking and very limited parking immediately adjacent to the hotel. Additional parking in B&Q car park! Close proximity to some shops and restaurants or Fratton train station to take you to the city centre or harbour also easy access to ferries.
