Extremely friendly staff and the new open lobby concept is amazing! Food we've ordered exceeded our expectations and I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the area. Special mention to the front office manager, outstanding service!

Presentation of the room was pretty good at a first glance... Then started to notice some niggles! The hair-dryer didn't work high dusting was pretty much non existent! And the duvet sheet was put on the wrong way.... Toilet wouldn't stop flushing

Very comfortable large bed. I would recommend hotel to offer complimentary bottle of drinking water. No fridge in the room. The rooms are large enough. Very well located at a walking distance to Gunwharf and city centre. Friendly staff on the reception, housekeeping and in restaurant. Wood come again. Well cover with internet and fast wi-fi speed.

I booked this hotel as I thought it would be a better experience than the other hotel chains in Portsmouth, it having 4 stars. Unfortunately this was not the case. Whilst the room was very clean and the bathroom had clearly been replaced recently, the bed was terrible. It was the worst night I've had away in a long time....
