“Good location for pompey attractions!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2013

Stayed overnight in July with wife and 7 year old daughter. Budget hotel but pleasantly surprised at bar area, lounge and nice clean room though latter was admittedly small. 10 minutes walk to Dockyards, Gunwharf Quay, Spinnaker Tower, and also for Southsea fair and Hovercraft. Pool table was enjoyable. Overall it exceeded our expectations for a cheap budget hotel. Staff friendly and gave us free drinks tokens due to birthday, nice touch! You get what you pay for generally, but this hotel exceeded what we expected.

Room Tip: Ask for quiet room not overlloking busy road.

Good location, reasonable value and good choice for one night stay before taking ferry from Portsmouth - good value but one of the smallest bathrooms in the world!! Why must mt review be 200 characters?

The reception area is very nice and food apparently nice, although I didn't eat here personally. The rooms are basic and small. The bathroom was very small and only had a shower in. Rooms were hot and road outside was noisy so didn't sleep well. Would probably stay elsewhere on next visit.

My boyfriend took me away for my birthday and booked this hotel. After staying in the ibis budget hotel in Southampton I was a but optimistic about this stay and me being me wasn't looking forward to it, but from the minute we arrived I was blown away at how different it was. We were greet both on check in and check out by very polite people and was even offered help with bags (not that we needed it) hotel is in walking distances of gunwharf, southsea pier and Portsmouth town centre (we went to all of these) and close to nearby train stations. The bed was super comfortable and although the bathroom was quite small it was nice to see we had a seperate room for it. All in all a wonderful stay and we will be looking into booking again soon. Please praise your staff for the excellent job they did ((regrettably dont know names)
