This was our first trip (overnight in a hotel) with our 7 month old as my husband was running a local marathon. The room was clean and big enough, although the bathroom did smell of damp (it was clean and well stocked though). The staff immediately changed the Z bed for a travel cot to accomodate our baby. We ate... More

We stayed here in December to run the Portsmouth Coastal Marathon. The hotel is in a good location, with the seafront and piers a short walk away. In the opposite direction there are a couple of good restaurants and the shopping / town centre is about 10-15 mins drive. The car park isn't massive, but the reception will give you... More

We have been staying here for past 7 days. The hotel rooms are smaller compared to US hotel rooms but they meet the need. The beds are comfortable, the room is clean, its modern. The staff are great. Very friendly and helpful.

cant beleive the cost of the place for what you get. Cheap appliances, tv integrated with a completely rubbish in house system that doesn't work properly, have to join the club for wifi - I look forward to lots of spam- small pokey rooms, two beds one chair etc etc. there are much better far cheaper locally

There is nothing immediately outstanding about this Holiday Inn property except for the convenience of the location for historic Portsmouth. From check-in, to the layout of the room and the bar and restaurant. Very typically Holiday Inn although on balance it is one of the better maintained Holiday Inn hotels in the UK and the staff are better than most.... More

Stayed hear when visiting friends who live locally. It proved to be a good base for a night out in Gun Wharf Keys- a very short taxi journey. Breakfast the next morning was particularly good- full English, fruits, pastries and pancakes. We paid £80 for a Saturday night in November. It was very busy and they had sold out of... More

We arrived on the 14th of November , the car park was 90% full at check in time of 2pm . However we managed to squeeze into a small space, I say squeeze because guests/ public had parked opposite parking slots making it difficult to park. I mentioned this to receptionist ( noticed she was on training according to badge... More

Stopped over for one night before the recent Portsmouth v Aldershot FA Cup match. one room needed for my son and I.
