    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?

  • Older travelers

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

    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.

    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.
