We were in a standard double room which isn't massive but has everything you need for a few nights away, the shower room likewise is compact, has a good...

A very pleasant hotel, well-situated for the Historic Dockyard, shops & restaurants. A small car park, but P&D tickets given out for street parking. Clean & comfortable, nice bar, good breakfast . Room was okay, but the double bed was small. I would have rated it higher, but for one thing. I was most surprised to see working girls touting...

We spent a couple of nights at the hotel over Easter while visiting the sights of Portsmouth. We'd booked two rooms and the friendly receptionist made sure we had adjoining rooms for the kids. The hotel is a relaxed 15 minute walk from the excellent Quayside shopping complex and the Historic Dockyard. The pool is clean, small but big enough...

Stayed here for a night with the missis while visiting the City for the football last week. Hotel is in a good location just over the road from the pier where you'll find all the usual arcades, rides and crazy golf. It's about a 15 minute walk to Gunwharf Quays where there are loads of decent restaurants and shops. Particularly...

Let me start with the staff, helpful and friendly in all areas of the hotel, reception, bar, breakfast ect. Hotel spotlessly clean cannot fault it in any way. The only big issue was the lack of working air-conditioning. I woke up at 1.30am unable to sleep as it was just too warm (radiators were off) I turned the air-conditioning from...
