We had a nice room with a good view. It is on the edge of being a boutique hotel. Some aspects are a little basic. The staff were very friendly and the parking arrangements worked well.

The room was very clean and tidy, with tea and coffee making facilities, and some bottled water. The room was quite small and with some rather old looking furniture that seemed out of...

The staff are consistently friendly and the atmosphere is warm and welcoming. Our sea view room was luxurious and very spacious. The views across the Solent are first class where you can...

My second stay at this hotel. Would not hesitate to stay again. I had a single room which was both spacious and comfortable. Breakfast is included in the price which is great as a lot of hotels charge extra. The staff are welcoming and attentive. Look forward to my next visit.

Very clean and tidy hotel run by family. Excellent location. Free parking. Great breakfast. Would stay there again. Rooms are large. Nicely decorated and clean. Tea and coffee in rooms. Free WiFi connection. Tv in room with internet. Good view of the sea. Very close to Gunwharf harbour.
