We find this a great hotel, its very english the beds are good. Are room was not the biggest we have ever seen, but big enough. We could park at the back of the hotel, on a closed (at night) parking. Restaurants are within walking distance and when you walk for 25 minutes, you find more restaurants and shops in... More

Good hotel located opposite the beach and very near to the centre of Portsmouth (a taxi ride to Gunwharf Quays costs less than £4.00. Alternatively a local bus passes near the hotel to Gunwharf Quays. The staff were extremely friendly and welcoming. Parking permits are available to use in bays outside the hotel. The rooms are comfortable, though on the... More

Came over on the cross channel ferry so wanted somewhere close by for an overnight stay. The hotel is very close to the seafront with onstreet parking or a small private car park of their own around the back. Staff were very friendly & the room clean. Breakfast in the morning is prepared to order - very good. Would use... More

Easy parking, 5 minutes walk from every style of restaurant, 5 min walk or less to seafront. Welcome could not be faulted with lots of info given on hotel facilities... More

Only stayed the one night but would definitely return. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the room was very clean and smart. The full English breakfast was perfect start for the day. Highly recommend this hotel.

We stayed here for one night on our trip around the south coast. This is a great character hotel with plenty of information regarding it's interesting history. Our room wasn't big but it was adequate and the bathroom was good. The bed was comfy. We didn't have a seaview as we had a room out the back (cheaper). There is... More
