This hotel is so convenient for the attractions in Portsmouth.It is part of the Gunwharf Quays shopping outlet which is brilliant,busy and great for a little retail therepy.Although this hotel is classed as a 3* the welcome was better than 5*. The receptionist,Nikki,was a smiling treasure and a great credit to our first impressions of this hotel in Portsmouth.Nikki was also very helpful to us because this was our first visit to Portsmouth....she knew the places to visit and marked them on a map of the town.The hotel was everything we needed...free breakfast,as much as you can eat,central position,clean,modern and quiet (ask for a room overlooking the shopping mall).The car park is next to the hotel,the first night is free,after that the charge is £2 for the next 24hours.
Around the hotel there are many restaurants to choose to eat in.We chose Jamies Italian one evening and The Indian Palace the next evening.Both to be recommended.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Portsmouth
