“Nice & quiet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2014

I've stayed at this hotel on a number of occasions. Rooms are to the usual Marriott standard nothing flash but adequate. Staff are always friendly and helpful. Nice atmosphere in the bar and restaurant is OK.

Parking is never a problem and the hotel is well located for easy travel. The only down side is there is nothing close by. The nearest amenities are located in Port Solent. You can walk there but not recommended in the winter.

Room Tip: Ask for an upper floor and if not available room not over looking the bar

We stayed last week for one night and overall it was good but some aspects let it down. We found blood on the pillow but were too exhausted to call down to reception so we just put it on the floor and used another one but in the morning we found that the sheets had it on as well, not very nice. The other problem is the noise, it is an older hotel and I assume not double glazed, the traffic noise was incessant, I actually got out of bed because I thought the window must have been open, it wasn't. It woke me up early and kept me awake late so I would suggest asking for a room away from the busy road side of the hotel.

The girl on reception in the morning provided as much customer service as a nuisance PPI caller and didn't bother to ask how our stay was. It's a shame because the rest of the hotel is nice but I would stay in a more modern hotel next time just because of the aforementioned noise problems. I've stayed in budget hotels at the airport and heard less noise!

Room Tip: Ask to be away from the noisy road.

Dear Guest,

Thank you forstaying at our Hotel and thank you for sending me your information, so I can follow up on the various service issues. I am pleased to inform you that our windows will be replaced early next year, as our owners are investing in new windows and changing the white cladding at the same time. We will be installing the latest technology - double glazed windows, so we will limit any noise from traffic and weather and improve on energy efficiences at the same time.
I have put a note on your file for a quit room for your next visit and I will get back to you with regards to the service issues soon.

best regards,

BJ Schreuder

Had a lovely weekend break in Portsmouth, enjoyed staying at The Marriott.
Lovely breakfast in bed.
The pool & spa are very nice and had a relaxing time in there.
Nice to sit at the bar of an evening, great atmosphere.
This hotel is worth a visit.

I booked a weekend away for my wife & I, we choose the Marriott Portsmouth.
The initial cheak-in was great and our rm was ready early for us,which i had requested by phone..
My wife had a stressful couple of weeks @ work in london, so i booked her into the hotel spa centre, she loved it, an hr's massage, great service, very friendly.... I sat in the bar and watched the sports they showed on the giant tv, and had a couple of beers while i waited, reasonably priced,good service. after returning from the city we eat in the restaurant a light dinner, we had to wait a while to be seated which was the only negative(the staff just seemed to ignore us at the desk). But after we were seated it was quite efficient and we were able to get a fast meal and return to rm for a world cup game in time...
Cheak out was again good and friendly...
The only negative thing about the hotel is its location... A £10 ride in taxi from city centre... On the outskirts of Portsmouth..

We have been travelling to Portsmouth several times a year for the best part of 20 years and have stayed in many of the main hotels in the city i.e. Hilton, Holiday Inn, Premier Inn. The one we keep coming back to is the Marriott. There aren't huge price differentials between the Marriott and the other hotels but we find the Marriott is generally a cut above its competitors. The rooms are of a good standard, and last time we stayed we had a massive, extremely comfortable bed. Breakfasts are better quality than the average hotel with more choice and everything cooked properly (when a lot of hotels undercook their bacon and sausages). Service was friendly and efficient; plenty of spaces in the car park and once you work out how to get to the hotel, it makes for a good location from which to travel into Portsmouth

Chose this hotel because of its location but it turned out to be extremely noisy. The rooms were clean bed comfortable, but ordered room service at 2215 and over an hour later it still hadn't arrived

For the price I paid I've stayed in better

Dear Guest,

Thank you for staying at our hotel and your feedback. We are replacing the cladding and windows hopefully this year with the support of our owners and this will ensure proper insulation from noise and weather.
At check out you have mentioned this issue and the late Room service order to our Front Office manager and we have tried to follow up and investigate.
As discussed, please use her business card, which she gave to you for a free upgrade for your next visit.

Good menu in the bar, could do with the aircon turned down a bit. Comfortable rooms. Very welcoming and helpful staff. Free car park for guests. Prices are reasonable but get hiked for events in the area.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your great feedback and staying with us last weekend. Due Festival of Speed in Chichester the demand for bedrooms increased and all hotels in the near vicinity charge a Special Event rate.

We hope to see at another date and please check the marriott.com website for better value dates.
