We stayed at this hotel as part of a Paultons Park/Peppa Pig World mini-break deal and have to say, the value for money was superb. Positives - view over the docks from our room on the 7th floor was lovely, aided by the floor to ceiling windows! Staff couldn't have been more welcoming or helpful (those on reception and those...

Well located for the Red Funnel/Red Jet ferries to the IoW. We were warmly welcomed as priority club members and given a clean and tidy room with a view of the water. Only minor gripe was lack of plug sockets near the bed for charging various iDevices. Breakfast on the Saturday was good, with friendly service from Ruth. Will stay... More

We booked this as part of paultons mini break and I must say we were very impressed. The hotel looks very nice and although the post code supplied took as to the wrong turning we found it with ease. The reception was well attended and facilities were clean and spacious. We were on the 8th floor and the view was... More

Excellent place to stay pre cruise. Staff friendly and helpful. Room clean with a comfy bed. Food good and plenty of it. The ladies organising breakfast on the Sunday morning were particularly pleasant and helpful.

Had one night stay here before Princess Cruise and were very impressed. The lady on the check in desk was so friendly and very informative. Even finding out for us that our ships docking terminal had changed. The room was much more spacious than we had expected with a fantastic floor to ceiling window giving wonderful view of our ship...

We arrived in business at 2130, the reception staff were great. The bar staff looked like they were ready to quit. No smile, huffed an puffed when we asked for food and were very disengaged. You could run a great training course on a terrible customer experience. The reception staff were the complete opposition so there must be a departmental... More

We stayed here for a night prior to a P&O cruise. The reception staff were friendly and we were told we had been upgraded to an Executive Double - although you wouldn't know it, the room, which was minimalist/spartan and was fairly small - a light over the bed wasn't working. The hotel is near the docks and beside an... More

Good location, close to shops, docks etc. However, very old, very tired hotel. Old furniture in rooms, old fittings, bathroom covered in much silicone in places, holes in tiles badly filled, paintwork chipped/falling off. Breakfast OK. Only stay here if you have no other choice.
