My first stay here as part of a coach party organised by the League of Friends from QA Hospital Portsmouth. Comfortable room, staff very friendly, good food, extensive menu, central location, handy for the theatres and tennis. The public rooms, a lounge bar area and tv lounge are nicely decorated, I'd return without hesitation.

Our third stay here for a short Theatre Break and remains excellent and extremely friendly hotel. Just 2 minutes from Theatres with a small comfortable bar open until 12 . Plenty of places in vicinity to eat as well as good restaurant in hotel itself

We have just returned from a 4 night stay at the New Wilmington. We travelled with a coach party from our local area. Booking in was really swift with all cases being delivered direct to your bedroom. We were in a bedroom on the third floor, and although there was a lift we did have a small flight of stairs...

Just back from a five day weekend break at the New Wilmington and can endorse the many complimentary reports about this hotel and its staff. The hotel is situated on a street that runs parallel to the promenade and has the Theatre & Winter Gardens virtually on the doorstep with most of the shops and eateries only a few minutes... More

Just returned from 5 days at this hotel. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff and as I need a gluten free diet this is most important, All the meals were excellent and amended to suit my requirements. Can't recommend this hotel enough!!

It was nice to have a dedicated table for... More
