“A trip to the South Coast”
Reviewed August 4, 2008

Plenty of parking and checking in was fine, but there was an unpleasant odour in the corridor as I made my way to the room. (This lingered during the stay.) It was a warm day and I was expecting to find air conditioning as I entered, but this wasn't the case. The room was uncomfortable, despite opening the windows.
The next morning a member of staff showed me to a table for breakfast, but taking my order was slow. Other parties, who had arrived after me, had been dealt with. I had to remind a passing waitress that I was still waiting, 15 minutes after sitting down!
On the plus side the bed was very comfortable, breakfast was filling and the food I ordered in The Lounge was reasonably priced and tasty.
This is the second time I've stayed at this hotel, having been there many years ago, and the decor in the bathroom was beginning to look a bit tired. I don't think I shall return!

  • Liked — Lots of free parking.
  • Disliked — Poor service at breakfast.

I stayed, together with my wife, for one night, attending a wedding reception held there. I had, in advance , queried the statement on the website that some rooms were not yet refurbished. I was told that they were all now refurbished. The room was excellent - very clean, adequately furnished and with a good bathroom with bath and 'power shower'. The bed, with a duvet, was extremely comfortable and, I believe, of good quality. The hotel is quiet and away from the road - especially rooms at the back. Tea/coffee facilities and mineral water were provided. The public areas, bars etc. are fine though a few areas - e.g. reception and The Lounge (bar) were very warm. I think that we had a reduced rate as part of the wedding party, but even at their quoted rates (breakfast extra), this is extremely good value. For anyone interested, the wedding fare and service was also very good. Bar prices are reasonable.

  • Liked — Beautiful comfy bed and relaxing power shower, value for money
  • Disliked — Hot reception area and bar needs some cooling system

Given that this is a budget hotel it can be forgiven slightly for not having the best decor but this hotel really is in need of a refit. The room I stayed in had multiple stains on the carpet near the door and the bathroom was in dreadful condition with broken and stained tiles. The plastic fittings were out of the mid eightees and showed their age in both condition and style. The hotel advertises that "many of the room have been refurbished to a high standard" therefore it may be that I was unlucky.

That said the hotel staff were pleasant and if you are lucky enough to get a refurbished room then it's probably best suited for a single night on the way to the Isle of Wight or the continent as this offers a low cost night with easy access to a restaurant and a pub.

We arrived here as we wanted to see Portsmouth and it seemed a great location, with the area not being too busy.

Our room was at the back and we had a nice view of a garden out the back. The room was tidy & clean and the bed comfortable.

They provided some tea & coffee in the room ( a few satchets), towels, and even a newly packaged bath mat for us to use.

There was the hungry horse pub with cheap food & drink..very crowded but a normal family pub with a great menu for both adults & children.

Only snag was a wedding going on- no noise, but parking the car was difficult that night.

We enjoyed our stay and are currently thinking about returning to see more of Portsmouth and using this Hotel again.

Lovely hotel, warm welcome on arrival. Ideally situated for our visit but, you would need a car for sightseeing. We were visiting family. Rooms were comfortable and spotlessly clean with nothing to fault with it. We did have one problem, my husband slipped and fell very badly whilst getting out of the bath and was very badly bruised on his arm and leg and is still quite bruised ten days on. If you go there please ask if they have bath mats for the bath. Hopefully they may supply them now. They were very concerned (genuinely so) made out a incident report and told my husband to go to the doctor. They were lovely and caring but hope that they can rectify the problem. We will use this hotel again.

I like this hotel. It's the best of the lodge type chains. A semi-rural location about 7 miles from Portsmouth city centre. Little traffic noise and useful amenities nearby (petrol station, chain pub/restaurant plus village centre). Just across the road is Havant Thicket (a wood) which is quite pleasant for a stroll.

For the type of accommodation the rooms are a decent size. You get breakfast too, unlike most competitors.

Check the company's own website to see if you can get a discounted rate.
