The Hotel is in desperate need of updating, tired decor, broken and poorly mended fixtures. The room itself was clean if very inconvenient with the small soft bed jammed in to the corner of the room. The bathroom was clean with a good shower, shame only two hand towels had been supplied. No free wifi, Poor ventilation with plenty of... More

Third time of visiting with three mates as a base for golf. Staff were friendly and looked after us well. Rooms clean and tidy, breakfast very nice with lots to eat. Will be re visiting again as we all enjoy it.

Typical pub accommodation. Very noisy with traffic during the week, not sure how noisy it would get if the pub was alive with patrons as well, on a weekend. Breakfast was good value. The rooms aren't air conditioned, but ours had a fan; our friend's room didn't and he couldn't open his window very far so he was very uncomfortable.

Booked the hotel for one night Entrance to the hotel is from the car park at the side of the premises which was not at all inviting as it was dirty and dingy. The room was small with old wooden furniture and the double bed up against the wall. The room had been redecorated and the bathroom refurbished.

Stayed overnight prior to a early ferry. 5 minutes (at 0530) to the ferry terminal. Local shops and a petrol station which was handy. Rooms are a bit dated, but they were immaculately clean, nice big coffee mugs rather than faffy little cups, and it was very quiet even on a Friday night. Bed was a bit soft but I... More

The hotel provides poor vfm. The rooms are very tired and the beds uncomfortable. The receptionist was "gushing" with "darling", but poor in the bar. However, the food in the pub was very good. Not worth the price.

Clean room, friendly and helpful staff. The hotel is literally in Cosham town and is convenient for local shops and restaurants. Very good value for money. We stayed there in advance of an early ferry crossing and found it very convenient for the ferry port.

Couldn't fault this place, excellent helpful friendly staff. Room was spotless. Comfortable beds with clean white bedding. Great value for money. Fantastic food. Hotel used to be an old court room. Great location for Cosham.
