We booked this hotel for its perfect location, right in the heart of Gunwharf Quays with restaurants, bars, extensive shopping and tourist sights of the historic dockyard and Spinnaker Tower all within a few minutes walking distance. After reading the reviews I was a little apprehensive about what it would be like, but decided that we were only there for... More

Firstly, I would advise anyone with a disability that impaired their walking to look elsewhere. Also, anyone with even an inkling of a lack of patience, go stay somewhere else. This hotel has 4 floors, inluding the lobby and reception. It has 2 lifts. One lift does not work at all. It is switched off, and from other reviews, it... More

I have been staying at this hotel for business and pleasure ever since it was opened (I would guess thats about 10 years). It is in a great location on Gun Wharf Quays and I have always enjoyed my stays. However, I hadn't visited for two years or so and it is really noticeable that there has been no investment... More

I was tossing up whether to go with the chain or independent hotel for our overnight stay before going to the Isle of Wight. Although I did not expect a fabulous breakfast, both from past experience and the reviews, I liked the idea of something known. To me, the Holiday Inn Express at Portsmouth Gunwharf Quays, was a pleasant surprise.... More

We stayed one night here after returning from France on the ferry and our train home wasn't until the next day. Check in was easy and the receptionist was very pleasant. The reception is on the first floor which isn't a problem except one of the lifts wasn't working and a sign indicated that earlier in the day both had... More

Up Sides: The frontdesk was very nice and helpful. The room was clean, comfortable and spacious. Cleaning and Service in breakfast was in top Down Sides: The rooms aircon didn't cool the room down enough. It was stuck at too high temperature. The breakfast was very poor. Not that big selection.

Priority Club early check in was not available unfortunately but my bags were taken care of and I was given a temporary key card. This gave discount of a number of the local bars and restaurants. As I waited in the bar for the rest of my group to arrive we were well looked after. By the time we had... More

This hotel has the perfect location and the staff are welcoming and helpful. That is it! The less than perfect features were stained carpet in the room; tatty carpets in the corridor; dirty chairs out side the lift on the third floor. In addition only one lift was working - the other was 'under maintenance'; the working lift stopped functioning... More
