We stayed three nights in a standard double room with en-suite shower in the cottage. The room was compact, clean and modern. The bed was comfortable and a standing fan was provided for use during warm nights. The bathroom was quite small but the shower was great with strong water pressure. The wash basin was miniscule and impossible to fill...

I decided to stay in a hotel having just booked my ticket for the Sunday Victorious Festival on Southsea Common. A single en-suite was all that was left on booking.com so I snapped it up for £60 - bear in mind this was August Bank Holiday weekend. The hotel looked very quaint from the outside; I noticed it was part...

I had a great welcome from the Staff who were very friendly and helpful and really helped me with the checking in process. The room and en suite was very clean and tidy with everything I need. The Hotel is ideally placed to explore Portsmouth.

I would have given five stars but the bathroom was teeny tiny. Staff great, had great breakfast at recommended Spinnakers (free coffee for residents). Parked with permit right outside the door, location in the beautiful old town. Room was hot but they provided a fan, no hairdryer that I could find, loads of complimentary tea and coffee, definitely stay there...

Eveything fine. Convenient on-street parking, as long as you get there at a reasonable time. Friendly helpful staff. Nice meal in the attached pub restaurant. Pleasant short walk to the Historic Naval Dockyard. Easy drive to the ferry terminal.

Room is adequate. Ironing board and iron, plus kettle, hairdryer etc. T.v. Reception was not very good and crackled and jumped if trying to watch anything other than bbc1&2, so really unable to watch many other stations. Mini en-suite is adequate with water a bit slow to get to taps etc, so advise turn on before you need it. Hotel...

We thought this hotel was overpriced for what we got. The room was very small with the tiniest of bathrooms. Very noisy as the rooms are positioned above the pub. It was a pricey week end due to a festival happening at the same time but would not return to this particular hotel.

Horrible experience. Rude cleaning staff, unclean bathroom, tiny rooms. On arrival the receptionist could barely speak English. We had to ask her for a parking permit even though we'd seen her offer the guest before. It's above a pub so very noisy and lots of traffic around. Shared bathroom was disgusting. Cleaning staff were constantly around making it difficult to...
