3/5 Okay

Travelled with partner
Liked: Staff & service
The Hotel was clean and the staff extremely helpful but I still felt it was run more as a club than a hotel and as passing guests we did not feel relaxed. Our room was very basic and the amenities needed some updating, it was not a welcoming room and although it is advertised as basic accommodation it was not as I would expect.

Travelled with partner
Liked: Staff & service
The position of the hotel was great for the historic naval yard and surrounding area. Staff were helpful, decor was okay, double standard room looked like it had been refurbished recently and was a nice size. Our room was at the front of the hotel and was overlooked by the block of flats opposite. But i would use this hotel the next time we visit Portsmouth
