A really lovely place to stay in Portsmouth/Southsea. We had booked for one night after arriving in on the Caen Ferry and didn't arrive at the hotel til 10pm. Nevertheless we got a lovely warm welcome and the duty manager organised nice fresh sandwiches and drinks for us in the lounge as we were ravenous! The whole hotel is stylish,quirky and luxurious. Our room, no.7, was spacious and wonderfully comfortable, though the rather industrial style storage pieces in there may not be to everyone's taste, we really enjoyed the ambiance the furnishings and the lovey comfortable bed.
Things didn't get off to a good start the next morning as our shower refused to provide any hot water and the toilet became blocked ( through no fault of our own,I hasten to add!). I know these things happen, though you wouldn't necessarily expect it in a hotel that's only been open for four months. Anyway, the managers response was swift and appropriate. Unable to fix it himself,he found us a recently vacated room to shower in, not ideal,but ok in the circumstances. Consequently we were down towards the end of breakfast serving and that, coupled with a new member of staff on duty, made the experience seem a bit patchy. The food, however was very good and all the staff were, as others have commented, very pleasant and enthusiastic. We would certainly stay here without hesitation when in the area again.
