You do get what you pay for. We only stays here as we were catching the ferry to France first thing the following morning and just needed somewhere to sleep. The room was tiny, but clean. There isn't much more I can say. You wouldn't want to stay for longer, but it suited our needs. One disappointment was one of... More

Travelled down from Harrogate on Sunday night in preparation for an interview with IBM the next day. Great value for money, only paying 38 pound for the room. Around a 10 minute journey to IBM headquarters and the main district. Close location to train station and as an avid football fan situated next to fratton park. Although the wifi was... More

I decided to stop here on my way to the Isle of Wight. I travelled by train, from Darlington, after finishing work at 4pm and caught the catamaran ferry on the following morning. The modern hotel is walking distance from Fratton station. The room was minimalist and devoid of character. It's at the other end of the spectrum from those... More

In fact we had stayed overnight from July 22, 2013. We arrived from Cherbourg (France) and were going to London the day after taking the 12:12 train to London Victoria Station (much cheaper than to Waterloo Station). This hotel was cheaper, had an Ibis Budget standard room and there was a Subway store nearby. Breakfast was reasonable but did not... More

The hotel is situated right next to Portsmouth Football ground so its perfect for those away fans to stay in. We used the bus to get in to Portsmouth (we were warned about the very expensive parking!) and Southsea. Remember to ask about dayrider tickets as the drivers didn't seem to want to help you get the best deal on... More

The hotel is at a good location, 15 mins walk from the beach. Lots of food courts nearby, train station was only 10 mins walk away. Friendly staff 😀, only thing I missed in room was the fridge and toiletry and no room service. But overall worth what we paid for.

I must confess that we picked the IBis on the basis of price rather than any other reason: our usual choice of Premier was just a bit too pricey on this particular night last week. We have used Ibis before but we found this one barely acceptable. The room was very small and uncomfortably hot and the shower room -... More

Carpark is too small. Rooms are average. Service non-existing. If you don't expect much, this is ok. Rooms are boring. I have seen better and cheaper ones, not far from this hotel. But if you decide to stay here, you'll be ok, though not amazed.
