I stayed at the hotel mid week for one night. The staff were pleasant and efficient, the food was reasonable the rooms were what is commonly referred to as a little tired but you have to take into account the age and location of the hotel.

Anyway, the room was on the... More

very friendly, obliging staff and a great full English breakfast. Will definitely be returning in the summer as we are hoping to move to the area, so will be taking a few trips to Southsea. Our room offered great views over the Solent!

I stayed in this hotel a few times over a matter of 3 weeks, and the rooms, staff and food are top notch. The sea view rooms are spectacular. If your around Portsmouth for a few nights definutley look to stay here. Would 100% recommend to family and friends

We had a sea view which was lush - and saw the sunrise in the morning ( though you have to pay extra for the sea view - £15?). The room was large, the bathroom was clean. Only drawback was the double bed was made out of 2 singles and they did like to drift apart!! Oh and it was... More
