Stayed one night at this hotel. Very limited car parking within the grounds but we were given a voucher enabling us to use the outside/ on the road metered parking. We eventually managed to squeeze the car on the grounds of this hotel. There was a party of sorts going during the evening, fortunately we were not affected by any... More

Located in Southsea it is ideally placed for the show & restaurants in Southsea & only 15 minute walk to the wonderful Gunwharf Quays. Currently undergoing refurbishment so some rooms a little outdated, but not for long.

Budget hotel in quality and comfort. Parking is limited when the hotel is busy. Warm, relatively comfortable and easy to get to. Not much space for hanging clothes in a standard double and the shower room was more like a cabin shower wet room than a shower room. Breath in when you go in to the toilet (space). Breakfast was...

Lovely room in my favourite location. Disappointed that WiFi was not free for guests who were not members of the group. I was going to pay but I couldn't get network connection on my phone in the room anyway so I didn't bother. Breakfast was good and service friendly.

We stayed here for 1 night and were very impressed. A very warm welcome from reception,in fact all the staff were extremely courteous and professional. We had supper in the bar and thought the food was very good,a lot better than you normally get in a large hotel chain,although to nit-pick the menu was slightly limited. Would stay here again,not...

Considering the cost of the rooms per night. This hotel had little to boast about. On first arriving to allocated rooms. We found the facilities very cheap and grubby looking. The bathroom was a joke. We then decided to go for food. It was microwave food. Not at all what we expected. We tried to complain and had to reason... More

Just spent four nights, a three night followed by a one night a few days later. Having enjoyed our stay in September we also enjoyed our stay this time. Good breakfast and friendly staff. Friendly welcome at reception. Rooms are comfortable, but servicing needs to be improved, such as cup and glass not washed and face cloths not changed. There... More
