I was so impressed with the room, although quite small had coffee and tea, hot chocolate and bottle water was given. Very competitively priced and the breakfast choice from a full English to scrambled egg and smoked salmon was excellent. Certainly would recommend this hotel.

This is a very small hotell, located near the sea shore. We, a colleague and myself, went for business and stayed for two nights. My room (No 3) was rather small but the bed was nice, bed linen had just the right feel. Cleaning and general cleanliness was spotless. The full English breakfast was among the better I've had.

This is a really nice place to stay: conveniently located in Southsea with easy access by bus to Portsmouth City centre and just a few minutes walk from Albert Road with its seemingly limitless number of restaurants and bars/pubs.

Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a spot of luxury in Portsmouth - we live just around the corner and chose to stay in the suite for our wedding night.

Upon arrival (Friday 2.30-ish), found front door locked and had to ring for a member of staff to open up. When I asked why the door was locked, I was informed it was for security as the reception desk wasn't always staffed and they didn't want the public just wandering in. When I replied that surely as a hotel they... More
