The women on reception was really helpful. Rooms are clean and comfy, for the price I don't think you will find better.

Very central location. Free parking is an added bonus. We stayed on the top floor and it was very hot, there was a fan supplied but unfortunately still unbearably hot. Staff were so friendly and nothing was too much for them!

Very comfortable and clean
The room was cozy. The heating did go off around 7pm, so was a bit chilly for a while. But the room was lovely

Excellent for a one or two day stay. Superbly located in Pompey Old Town. The hotel website forewarned me that there was no breakfast. I ate in the Canteen just over 5 minutes walk away. The website mentions that all rooms are accessed by stairs. In fact the stairs are very narrow and steep, so unsuitable for those who are not fit or who have very large luggage. I would not like to carry a suitcase up to my room which was on the third floor. The room which I had was small, but with a comfortable bed and its windows looked out across the city to the East. It was so nice to have the early morning sun coming in through the windows into the room and bathroom.
