          This is my second time staying at this hotel and it does not disappoint. Steph (I believe) was a great receptionist. The beds were comfy and rooms immaculately clean. Toiletries provided and a great view onto the seafront. 10/10 would stay again.

          Hi - how long would it take to walk to Gunwharf Quays from your hotel please?

          I'm so sorry I've just seen this! It's too far to walk. The hotel is in Southsea and you would need to get a taxi to Gunwharf.
