This was our second stay in the last few months. Much the same as in our previous review but a couple of niggles. Firstly we were unable to get a coffee after 10 pm despite the bar still being fully open ? This isn't good holiday inn ? And secondly the food served in the bar look atrocious! Glad we... More

The staff at this hotel were excellent from the moment we checked in. The location of this hotel, although just a little outside the main centre of Portsmouth, allowed us a nice walk and time to walk along the old walls of Portsmouth and look at things you would not see otherwise. Great hotel good location. We had 2 children... More

The overall hotel is nice and the staff helpful and has a good range of facilities. However we did experience a couple of issues. Booked a family room for 2 adults and 2 young children which when we arrived at 4 pm didn't have the children's bed made-up. Asked reception, who assured us it would be done by 6 (... More

We stayed here overnight as we were attending a function locally. There was an issue with car parking because of major event taking place on the common but the hotel did the best to manage this. The service overall was very professional & friendly and breakfast in the morning was very good. The bedrooms are looking very 'tired' no pun... More

My girlfriend and I stated for one night using reward points. It is very easy to find (my sat nav took me straight there) and is overlooking the seafront at Southsea and a 2 minute walk to the seafront. There is a car park, but not a huge amount of spaces but there is ample overflow with a permit round... More

The hotel decor is a little tired but it makes up for this with excellent staff and by being really clean. It's about 12 minutes walk to Gunwharf and the histoic dockyard. Breakfast is disappointing and a little understocked. Coffee is poured by staff from a pot so if you want more than one cup allow some extra time as... More
