      Very friendly staff and good food

      needs an update - cracked wash basin

    • Group of friends
      6.2

      We were here for Portsmouth and historic Dockyard.Room was fine and spacious, Breakfast was much better ,fresher and hotter than expected.Didn't realise How close to Southsea town we were.

      View from room not good. Had a few problems with keys not working and staff helpful but running up and down three times to change keys not good with only one working in the end anyway.

    • Single

      The cleanliness and decor of the room was excellent. Staff were very pleasant and helpful. Friendly bar for dining alone.

    • Family with children
      10.0

      The Hotel had a really traditional feel which was what I was looking for. Although it was traditional it was very elegant. Large chandaliers, high ceilings etc etc. The staff looked smart in the uniform and everything added up to a wonderfull stay.

    • Single
      8.8

      Staff were helpful and friendly. Room was a good size with a comfy bed. Included buffet breakfast was very good.

      Carpark was too small for the size of the hotel. Local streets were also full so finding a parking spot could be difficult.

    • Single
      9.6

      I thought the staff in the restaurant excellent, very fast and efficient.Also the nights were quiet and restful.

      I would have liked a sheet as duvets are too hot for me but had no alternatives.

    • Group of friends
      10.0

      The location was excellent - our room was overlooking the seafront. The food and service in the restaurant was particularly good.

    • Couple
      7.0

      waking up and hearing the sea.

      im in the raf regiment so im ok with walking but my girlfriend thought it was a very long walk to the town center.

    • Group of friends
      6.6

      Staff were excellent,and friendly.Location close to the beach was great although I had rear facing bedroom

      Hotel is very run down ,in dire need of a facelift.Room smelt smoky and there was no extractor fan in the bathrrom.Bathroom window didnt open.There is no air conditioning in rooms and water pipes were airlocked causing the water to spit for quite a while before running smoothly

    • Single
      7.4

      Car park too small for number of rooms.

    • Older travelers
      9.2

      The Bedroom was comfortable and clean and tidy with tea and coffee making facilities. The breakfast was excellent and so was the service.

      The bathroom was a disappointment, it was very dated and not what I expected from a Best Western hotel. We chose this hotel because of the reputation of the chain but the bathroom did not live up to expectation.

    • Couple
      5.8

      Staff were excellent, managed to get coffee n toast after breakfast had closed.

      Whilst being clean and dog friendly with brilliant staff, the hotel building and decor are dated.

    • Group of friends
      6.6

      Location is good as you have the seaside feel just minutes away from shops and city amenities.

      A bit dated catering for tour groups of a certain age, which put us off using the bar. However the staff were very friendly and helpful and the hotel proved to be a good base for use.

    • Single
      8.2

      Bar/restaurant was excellent and the staff were welcoming and very helpful

      I wanted wi-fi in my room but it was not available or not working. The manager however gave me temporary access which was much appreciated
