Yes it has carpet and I don't like it, yes to no lift and it's fine, yes to a bit more maintenance and yes to it's SO confortable, cozy and restful... besides, the restaurant has great burgers unlike the fast food ones. If I need to go back, I will.

A nice pub hotel and easy to access. It is located at the main road between M3 and city centre. The car park have always some space left for costumers and lighted during night hours. The costs already covered or you can redeem it in the bar. The rooms are small but sufficient for everything you need. No AC but... More

There were several confusions over our booking but the staff sorted it out without a fuss. The room was clean and pleasantly decorated but we were there on a couple of the hottest nights of the year. The management must know that these rooms are very hot as a fan was supplied without being requested. Despite this, which was very... More

First - the poor parts : the whole hotel really needs a little maintenance and better daily cleaning. Our bathroom door would not close fully, the toilet seat/cover was insecure and wobbly, and grouting missing around bath surround tiles. Complimentary shower/shampoo gel dispenser was still empty after two requests to fill. (We were later told that they had run out).... More

We stayed for 1 night on sat 12 July. The pub is lovely and loved the decor. Felt very happy and relaxed and great selection of drinks on offer. We didn't get chance to sample the food but did glance at menus and it all looked promising. The room was nicely decorated and had everything we expected for our visit.... More

How awesome can it be to stay at a pub? The rooms are fine, good showers, enough plugs, not too sound proof but ok. Great value. The pub downstairs is great and serves fantastic pizza. Try it!!! Staff very nice. I loved it

Our family with a small child spent a night here. The showers in our rooms which were electric did not work when we tried them. It sounded like the water pressure wasn't high enough as the machine was working over time but no water came out. The staff and management were less than helpful and made us feel like idiots... More

We just wanted somewhere comfortable to relax overnight having been to Portsmouth for the day. We booked online for the first time ever and were a bit concerned that the hotel would not be great. However, we were warmly greeted by Ian and his staff and the service was excellent. Room very clean, comfortable bed and the shower was super.... More

This small hotel is very welcoming and the staff are all very pleasant. You have to walk through the bar / restaurant to get to the reception area. My room was nice, nothing fancy but nice. The bed was very comfy, sheets spotless, room was clean and so was the bathroom. There were tea and coffee making facilities, wifi, a... More
