“Good for the price.”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

I found the hotel to be nicely decorated, modern and clean. The room was excellent with a very comfortable bed. Although it is situated in, what seemed to be, a busy area it was very quiet. There are plenty of places close buy to purchase food.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the hotel, on the ground floor.

Cost data : 75 pounds (Friday night) excluding breakfast.

We needed somewhere prior to an early morning sailing to France but hadn't realised that this date coincided with the Goodwood Festival and we had difficulty finding anywhere else (so prices are hitched (or stitched ?) up to reflect demand).

On the positive side, the cell (sorry, room) was clean, and the desk staff were friendly.

Otherwise this is a small cramped room with a tiny shower/washbasin in the same area as the bed - at least they had the decency to put the toilet in a separate room. Situated on a soulless retail park Altogether, a rather sad pitiful excuse for a hotel room. Not even a kettle to make a cup of tea to drown your sorrows. Makes the Travelodge/Premier Inn brands look like the Ritz.

This room was 50 pounds too expensive - it's worth no more than 25 pounds a night. A place to stay as a last resort if everything else is booked up.

My husband stayed here as it was close to the concert hall we were going too. Room had everything you need and was clean. No tea/coffee but new this in advance so took our own. Staff were helpful and polite. Excellent value for money.

Exactly what you would expect. Cheap and cheerful. With clean rooms and friendly staff.

If you need a budget room then this is the place to consider.

Limited parking though so you need to park in the retail park over the road.

Other than this, if you want a cheap room then this is the place to go.

Convenient for overnight stay before travelling to France. Close to rail service & buses, which we used to get into Portsmouth City for the evening. Just what we wanted. Will use again for the same purpose.
