Wow, what an amazing hotel in the heart of Southsea. I had contacted the hotel in the week as we knew we would be arriving late morning and we just wanted to make sure we could park and leave the car for the day.

I got there late on Sunday night and was greeted by Agata who couldn't do enough for me. She went and found the special herbal teas I wanted and was on duty again the next morning, smiling and helping everyone. My room was lovely, nicely decorated, calm, clean and stylsh. Powerful shower with nice big fluffy towel.

I wasn't wow'd by the hotel for the value that it cost for the night. Rooms were nice with good decor and comfy bed but you can hear every single step around the hotel. At 8am I could hear someone's shoes clomping backwards and forwards downstairs. Also, was awoken at 6am with the radiator making a strange noise! Location and...
