We visited Portsmouth as a 4-day add-on to a business trip my husband made to UK in fall 2014. While I love small boutique hotels and B&B, my husband prefers hotels. After reading lots of review we ended up with this Holiday Inn because it had parking, what we perceived to be a great location, and restaurant and bar in... More

The building and rooms are tired and overdue a makeover. Typical of large hotel chains there is no free WifI. Breakfast wasnt amazing but it was pretty good and plenty of it. Staff were all friendly and helpful. Rooms can be noisy with doors slamming and loud guests walking past at all hours. Location is the saving grace for this... More

The bedroom was clean and comfortable enough. Bathroom also clean. Love that at Holiday Inn I can request feather pillows for a more comfortable nights sleep. Bed was comfortable enough. the breakfast was £10 a head - not worth it really! It was buffet style, but the hot plates were not hot enough so it all was a bit cold... More

Location wasn't bad for visiting the Gunwarf Quay and the Historic Dockyard, about a 10-15 minute walk. The room was OK, a bit small by North American standards. We didn't eat at the hotel, just some drinks which I thought were a bit pricey compared to pubs nearby.

I stayed here for two nights at £109 per night. I couldn't believe that I was expected to pay an extra £16.00 per night for the internet. I refused and was offered a chance to join the Holiday Inn Club, as long as I agreed to be kept up to date with their special offers. Internet access was poor. The... More

Great venue, friendly staff, car park full but you can get a free pass to park on the road. Room was a good size and the bed was very comfortable. Great position to get to Gunwharf but you probably should take a taxi if a 10 minute walk is too far. Great pubs on route to visit if you do... More

Stayed here due to attending a wedding reception at a near by venue. Good location near Southsea Seafront and very near amusement fair. Ideal location for visiting other areas of Portsmouth like the Historic Dockyard with the Mary Rose, Old Portsmouth, D Day museum and lots more.

Very helpful and friendly staff, from the moment you arrive at Reception until you depart. The downside is that parking can be interesting at times, but you can park on the street. Plus the size of the bath if you are average height. Easy walking distance for the historic parts of Portsmouth harbour and many rooms have views out over... More
