Stinks of fags. A complete dump. Couldn't find anywhere else at short notice. Mary at the Florence helped us find a room as they were full. Lovely of her to help but I wish she didn't! Paid £45 for the night and feel ripped off. Lady at the desk asked everyone for cash. Dodgy.

Beware, this Hotel is now called The Palm Hotel. Had to endure four nights at this so called Hotel. I have never been so looking forward to leaving a Hotel. Did not need key to the room as the lock did not work, just had to push the door open. Could not even lock the door at night. Reported it... More

When we arrived the owner told us brekky is 7.30 - 9.30am and if we didn't mind arriving the later the better, so we went for breakfast at 9.20am to be told by... More

Having left for Portsmouth very last minute our choices of hotels were very limited. In retrospect we're not at all surprised to the Saville had vacancies. Stained (bodily fluid) walls, carpets, damp musty smell mixed with cigarette smoke. Building felt like a crack den. We weren't murdered and if you're on a night out and need a bed its hilarious.

got to the hotel to be told that I wasn't allowed any guests in my room at all, so my friend had to wait in the lobby whilst I got ready to go out. Upon leaving, I had to hand in my key again and was told that if I wasn't back by 2am, I wouldn't be able to get... More

If you're looking for luxury comfort and modern facilities at high prices, this is not the place for you. If you're looking for a reasonable tariff and you don't mind your hotel to be a little rough around the edges, then this could be the place for you. It's clean (some reviewers are confusing "old" for "dirty"), the hotel staff... More

This place is a complete dump, it is a fire disaster waiting to happen and it is filthy! There is a fire escape outside some of the upper rooms - great I hear you say ..... shame that the windows don't open wide enough to fit anyone larger than a small child through them! The electrics in the room were... More
