Stayed here using some of my loyalty points. Was a weekend away with my wife for some site seeing and r&r. I booked an executive room and was disappointed at how small the room was compared to other holiday inn hotels. We had a room on the top floor which was quite and had a good view but spoilt by...

Stayed for two nights, hotel room was a little on the small side but for the amount of time we spent in it, was adequate. Not too far from restaurants near the gunwharf. Hotel booked a couple of taxis for us which arrived quickly. Debbie on reception was friendly and welcoming. Manager went out of his way to find me... More

The lobby, bar, and breakfast out do the rooms. The rooms were small, no dresser, looked worn. Ok for one night. Lots of restaurants nearby. There were many signs warning about the dangers of leaving things in your car. If going for a cruise stay in Southhampton.

There is nothing wrong with this hotel but nothing particularly special about it either. The rooms are fine if a bit on the small side with a small but modern bathroom. Breakfast was reasonably good. The parking area is too small for the hotel and on street parking is expensive. I was going to go out in my car but... More

We stayed here for 1 night. Everything was very good, staff were all helpful, friendly and attentive. Our room was clean and comfortable. We had dinner in the restaurant and our waitress arranged for usd to have a meal from the bar menu which wasn't on restaurant menu, which was nice. The hotel was quiet in the night. Breakfast is...

Just returned from a very enjoyable family weekend break; hotel is near the Gunwharf for the Spinnaker and other attractions. Ideally situated for ferry and especially hovercraft boarding. Rooms are fine, pool is excellent and staff very friendly. Breakfast could be slightly better organised as most people are looking to eat at around the same time but otherwise everything was... More

Stayed at the Holiday Inn Portsmouth during August for 1 night with my wife and 2 daughters (6+16yr old girls). Location is fine for most of the Portsmouth sights with GunWharf Quays being only a 15 minute walk away along the old historic battlements and around the marina. Car Parking is tight on space but wasn't a problem on this... More

Dear Jason_Warren, Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay at the Holiday Inn Portsmouth. We are busy with an in-house maintenance and touch-up program throughout the hotel, however, this is not progressing as fast as we may have liked as the hotel is very busy over the summer holidays.

Just 1 overnight stop but very memorable due to the lovely staff! Easy going but professional staff in all areas, especially reception on check in and in the pool area, Had a lovely, relaxing swim ( no fuss with towels etc) and the children's area in reception is an amazing idea. Most of all the table with comics, treats and... More

The location is excellent for exploring Old Portsmouth and the historical sites near Gunwharf Quays. The hotel itself was fine but parking can be an issue and how hard would it be to include biscuits on the tray? I would stay here again though
