    No bath and very small double bed a larger bed could have been in situ with still ample space. Also would have liked to be able to open window more !

    Location

    The breakfast was awful and for the same price, you can stay in a 4/5 star hotel nearby. The food was cold and it was a horrible experience having to battle to get your food - with people queing and equally fed up. A complete war zone and a disaster. We have stayed in this hotel three times now and our latest stay in Aug 2012 was our last. We will not be returning.

    Very convenient and a nicely presented hotel.

    Overall, the experience was good, although the air-conditioning system in our room was very noisy. By the way, not sure the previous question - Which of the following words best describes Holiday Inn Express Portsmouth Gunwharf Quays?- is phrased particularly well - and why check-boxes for Ski/Mountains?

    Was visiting family based on the port. Very convenient for that. But you pay a price for the convenience.

    Exceptional

    This hotel is right in the heart of a brilliant shopping centre, is very clean and friendly.

    The towels were rather small.and the signing of the hotel outside on the road were not very clear for arriving by car.

    Superb

    For me the location was perfect for the meeting I needed to attend. Also, I believe that the area surrounding the Inn is the most interesting part of the city.

    I had no complaints about the Inn itself. I felt that the parking arrangements could have been better explained.
