Stayed recently for 2 nights whilst attending a function. The room was clean and a reasonable size, and the bed very comfortable. The shower cubicle was fine and wasn't too small. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend the hotel and stay here again.

We stayed here for a 2 night visit for us to go to the Historic dockyard. We travelled by train and found the nearest station was Fratton and then a short walk to the hotel. We also used the train to get to the Dockyard. Train fares were very cheap and trains were every couple of minutes. Hotel was very...

A great budget hotel, for a one night stop over whilst heading to the Isle of wight. Clean, basic but satisfactory, for our needs. Only down side was the lift was not working!! We had a fairly low floor bedroom. This would have been a problem to the elderly staying. Staff quite approachable on the desk.

My favourite thing about this hotel was the 24 hour service desk, making checking in at unsociable times very easy! Room was big enough for us to be comfortable and everything was clean. Obviously not for a holiday but is ideally located for for a quick stop. Close to a big tesco, 3 fast food outlets and not far from...

We weren't expecting great things from this hotel so we weren't too disappointed! We were only booked for 1 night and for that it was adequate. Plus points, the staff were friendly, the room was clean and the hotel was in the right area for us. We didn't mind that the shower was in the main room or that the...

We stayed here the night before a ferry to IOW. We stayed with our three year old and 1 year old. We asked for a travel cot and was concerned that there wouldn't be room to move but we were allocated room 302. There was plenty of space for the travel cot near the ladder to the top bunk bed...

Arrived late afternoon after a long journey, room was very small for a double, no tea/coffee facilities, no hair dryer in the room, very little space for suitcases. Had booked for three nights, on reflection should have only stayed one night maximum, not ideal.

Arrived at the hotel around 7pm and was told there was no parking available but I could park in the B&Q car park. This happened to be a very long walk away across main roads and too far with a heavy suitcase. There is only around 10 parking places at the hotel and all were occupied. Would not recommend this...

Ideal location, close to supermarket and various food outlets. Rooms are compact but very clean. Unfortunately they don't contain a kettle, which was a drawback. Free WiFi for duration of stay. Staff welcoming. Would recommend this hotel.
