Value for money in "Old Portsmouth". Close to major attractions. Small double room -- small but just big enough for 2 people. Friendly and helpful staff. Good "pub" accommodation. No onsite breakfast but local cafes (with discount vouchers from hotel) an excellent substitute.

Chose this place as it is literally just around the corner from my eldest daughter & her partner. Rooms are beautifully clean & tidy. Tea/coffee facilities in room, together with a cool fan for the warmer months & the all essential hairdryer! En-suite a little snug, but perfectly adequate. Room only, however there is an abundance of places for breakfast/brunch...

One major flaw here and it's the thin walls. Everything else was good including comfortable room and clean bathroom but unfortunately when your neighbours are chatting til 4am no amount of earplugs help.

Just stayed one night with my husband and toddler in a family room and had a nice visit. The room was clean and tidy. The location was close to all the hot spots in town and parking out front was very convenient. We will return the next time we visit Portsmouth.

We came with a group of friends loved the handy position near ace restaurants and breakfast cafes. The bed and linen were wonderful and the room really clean and quiet. Handy having the bar next door. Having a car permit issued for free was handy, though being restricted to 12 o clock was a shame as we were keen to...

We stayed in room 17 in the annex which was ok but the room had an over powering smell of paint. The bathroom layout is just baffling. Great if your 3ft tall but not really practical if you want a shower where you actually stand up! Walls are paper thin so you can have a good earwig in on your...

Nice hotel centrally located - good position for Gunwharf Quays with a number of good restaurants nearby. Room was lovely - large & clean - windows opened onto High Street but very little traffic noise. Will definitely look to stay again as extremely good value.

The room was advertised as a small double room, but it was more like a cupboard. it was clean and tidy. No breakfast served, just rooms and small reception. Walls are paper thin,so don't speak above a whisper or you might wake someone up.

All the staff were very nice and willing to help us . Place very clean as well. Missed having an elevator, and our room a bit on the small side. We really enjoyed our stay in Portsmouth but parking is a nightmare so if you don't need a car don't bring one. Taxis get you around the city with ease.
