Room furnishings a little dated and tired looking. Very clean though.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MikeR777 All I needed for a short leisure break
The hotel provided everything I needed for a short family leisure trip to Portsmouth. Good location, convenient for shopping, restaurants, and Tourist spots.
Followed the Sat Nav to the door, easy to find and only a few minutes from motorway.

As Holiday Inn's go, this gives you exactly what it says it will.
First the Staff.
Lovely and friendly and very helpful. I enjoyed my interaction with them very much.
Let's not put too fine a point on it, the Lasagne I had was pretty dire, the crumble I had with the custard was pretty good
It has a Gym, but it could be prosecuted under the trade descriptions act, in terms of weights, it is highly under equipped. Decent CV machines there though.
To be fair, it was very nice and I slept reasonably well, I would have slept better, but the room was very warm and the Air Con was broken. At first I thought it was all centrally controlled, but discovered (Too late) in the morning that the wall control should have worked but unfortunately didn't. The view I had from my window, was quite lovely as it was a sea view.
Overall, the Hotel was comfortable and what you expect from a Holiday Inn, but I found the general environment extremely warm throughout the hotel, notwithstanding the Air con which should have helped, but unfortunately didn't.
I am staying again on 9th June, so hope that some of the Air con issues will have been corrected by then
