Satisfied stay.
The stay was overall quite satisfied. It was very clean & comfortable. Location was very good! Few mins walk from the Portsmouth & Southsea station and the shopping location. Apart from that, they could have at least 1 bin for us to throw our rubbish but this is just a small issue. To have a hair dryer or iron (on request) would be nice. I would say i would stay here again.

Fine for a cheap night stay
It was the cheapest accommodation available for bank holiday weekend. It was new with nice communal decor. The room itself is very much an empty shell, the pillows almost weren't worth having as they were so thin. The description does state luggage storage available, however this is not the case. It was suitable for a night with a great location opposite the station.
