  • Group of friends
    7.0

    Ideal place to meet up with friends. Perfect location for shopping, restaurants and bars. Could walk into the city centre if you needed but there was everything close to hand at Gunwharf Quays.

    Had a very disturbed nights sleep due to the noise from the bars and Casino below, went on until 5am. You had to have your window open because there was no Air con. Doubt if I would stay there again because of this.

  • Group of friends

    Situation

    Furniture in bar area old and dirty

  • Group of friends
    7.8

    Great Location and excellent staff. Recommend to anyone for a fun shopping/nightlife casino experience

    Quite expensive base rate buy can be discounted if you search hard enough - web searches cheaper than own site

  • Family with children
    7.8

    Location as we were travelling on from there to France. Proximity to restuarants and the dockside attractions.

    Parking and handling of luggage. We had 4 suitcases to bring in from the car park,which was not close by, and the hotel lift was out of order.

  • Older travelers
    8.0

    Good for shopping. Ideal situation for the dockyard and ferry port.

    The breakfast was disappointing - could have been fresher.

  • Older travelers
    5.8

    On arrival we were not told time for breakfast or how to operate lift using door key. The shower had a lot of black mould oaround the shower tray and the grouting.

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    The hotel was in the right location for our visit to portsmouth

    Rather overpriced for the type of hotel that it is.

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    Excellent location - right in the middle of an outlet shopping centre, right by the harbour, 10 minute stroll to Old Portsmouth, 10 minute stroll to Historic Dockyard, 20 minute stroll to city centre, 20 minute stroll to Southsea.

    Breakfast not good - tasteless scrambled egg (suspect made with dried egg); very little choice. Choose this hotel for location, not the breakfast.

  • Family with children

  • Older travelers
    7.0

    It was ok nothing special, good location which is why I picked this hotel.Yes I would use it again if I could get a deal on the normal price.

    Lack of storage space. Our shower did not function correctly nothing major, we did advse the reception on leaving so it could be recitified for the next occupant.

    Location excellent for rail and ferry links

    Awoken at 2a.m. by shouting from people I guess leaving local nightclubs.

  • Older travelers

    Good access to restaurants, good size room

    Towels were a bit tatty

    Cooked breakfast was served later than expected and we were unable to obtain any.

  • Older travelers

    convenience of hotel for where we needed to be.

    there wasn't anything we didn't like.
