Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 294 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great stay in Portsmouth Another very warm welcome and comfortable stay in Portsmouth. The staff in Portsmouth are always very helpful, the hotel comfortable and facilities excellent, all in a perfect location. Looking forward to my next stay. September 14, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Just about average - only adequate for short stays... 20 minutes walking distance to Gunwharf Quays and some pretty good restaurants in the immediate vicinity are just about the only reasons which makes this hotel attractive. Otherwise, it is in dire need of refurbishment - rooms are very small and the Executive rooms are hardly "executive" at all. I'm sorry but that's just the plain truth! However, breakfast is pretty decent and the staff are helpful and friendly (though some were not able to give out proper directions to certain main attractions!) September 11, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by relaxing time Hi my wife and i plus another couple had a very easy going enjoyable , relaxing time, to be honest i couldn't fault it and would recommend the holidayinn to anyone, many thanks. September 10, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Convenient, clean and pleasant Free Wifi should have been automatically available. However had to sign up to what I think is a loyalty programme before free wifi was allowed. September 5, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Recent Stay We stayed over the bank holiday weekend in August and would recommend this hotel. The Staff are very pleasant and helpful. I found the double bed to be on the small side if I had had to say anything negative about the room. My Mother in law had a problem with an early morning call she booked, when we explained on check out the staff could not be apologetic enough and dealt with the complaint above our expectations. We didn't eat at the Hotel but used the bar and received very good service The Holiday inn is only a 10 min walk away from Gun Wharf and a 2 min walk from the seafront really good location for a bit of everything. We would book to stay again when back down in Portsmouth. September 3, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not the best nights sleep! After a very disturbed night at this hotel, we will not be returning. However, i would like to thank the member of staff on the front desk for being so understanding of our frustrations. September 3, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Location Overlooking parkland with panoramic seaviews fom the uper floors. Comfortable executive rooms. September 3, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by wonderful experience Stayed in this hotel in August 2014 and was expecting a bog standard hotel . To my surprise it was very clean , staff very friendly , beds really comfy and the breakfast selection was fresh and lots to chose from .....right opposite the beach great stay and great hotel would definitely come again . Well worth a visit !! September 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Disabled facilities Sadly the disabled room was not what was expected. My 90 year old mum and her carer were expected to share a bed as the rooms only have one bed. A second bed was provided but it was a z bed and very uncomfortable. There was a bath with a shower over so no walk in shower facilities. There was also only one comfortable chair to sit in so one person had to always sit on the bed. Having said all that the staff were very kind to my mum who stayed there for her 90th birthday. This has taught us a good lesson to check just how disabled the facilities are from now on. September 1, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by bed change? I have stayed at this hotel on average 2 nights per week for the last 2 and half years. I suspect that some of the bedding is due for a refresh / change. September 1, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Festival stay Stayed during busy bank holiday weekend so check in was slow but staff very pleasant and served sparkling wine to those in queue. Room was good with sea view and very clean but bathroom was a bit small. Good choice at breakfast. Staff were very good throughout our stay and made an excellent impression. August 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice clean and comfortable hotel Nice conveniently located hotel for the ferries. Stayed over after a crossing from Caen to avoid a long drive. Nice room, really comfortable bed. August 30, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good room awkward bathroom The bedroom was a good size and very comfortable, but was let down by a very small bathroom, badly designed so that it was almost impossible to get past the door which opened inwards to within an inch of the toilet. We didn't eat breakfast at the hotel, the cost was far too high compared to good local cafes. August 29, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Not new but welcoming Having stayed at a few Holiday Inn Express hotels of late this was an "upgrade" however while that was certainly true of the facilities and breakfast, all excellent, the room (and maybe reception) reflected the age of the building overall, both being cramped by "modern" standards. That said I'd recommend it, a good location within walking distance of Gunners Quay but in a quieter pleasant spot (the "Express" is in the thick of it if that attracts you!) and the staff were as good as any I've encoutered. August 27, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by August 2014 - Long Weekend. Hotel is lovely and clean with very good facilities. We have been twice this Year and intend going again early 2015. However, we went to Breakfast at 09.00 on the Saturday and found a large queue , no glasses for fruit juice and in my opinion not enough staff. The staff , especially the restaurant manageress were brilliant. Also, I was extremely disappointed to be charged Wi-Fi usage of £22 which was because my young Son was using it on his Ipod , without us realising , and when I was advised that I could get Wi-Fi for free as an IHG member. I thought maybe the hotel would have removed the charge. That said, we had a lovely stay and the hotel is in an excellent location. I also think the bar is very very nice and comfortable, but that IHG should give customers more of an incentive t use it ..The lack of atmosphere in the bar I have ticked as a con not a pro.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great location and great facilities. We had an excellent welcome from the staff at Reception who provided good relevant information. We used the pool, sauna, jacuzzi and steam room, and loved them! We liked the fact that these facilities were open until late which suited us perfectly. The location is brilliant for the Naval Dockyards, Gunwharf Quays Outlet Centre with its excellent shops and restaurants, and the ferries to the Isle of Wight and the continent. Our room was on the 5th floor and very quiet. The bed was comfy and the bathroom/shower just fine for a one night stay. Breakfast was buffet style and there was plenty of choice. We were impressed overall and will stay there again when occasion permits. The car park is a bit on the small side for the size of hotel so get there early to secure a space. August 26, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great experience Comfortable bed, lovely pillows, clean room and very friendly staff, breakfast lovely. August 26, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A relaxing break Booked here for a two night stay with my Sister in our home town as a Birthday treat. The hotel was easy to find and in a great location for Southsea and the Gun wharf. The reception staff were very welcoming and soon had us booked in. We found them very helpful through tour stay a special thank you to Asam and Charlotte. Our room was well equipped and very clean. The swimming pool is great along with the hot tub, steam and sauna rooms. We went out on our first night and the staff ordered a taxi for us. Breakfast was excellent, plenty of choice. I recommend the omelettes which are cooked to order. We had a meal in the restaurant which was excellent. Steak cooked to perfection. I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel and will be booking here again for sure. August 25, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Another Pleasant Stay Have stayed here a number of times after nights out in Portsmouth/Southsea this time after a wedding. Booked a family room for 3 (2 adults and 15 year old daughter) when we checked in we were given 2 rooms for no extra cost. teenage daughter delighted at this and told all her friends what a great room she had. Beds very comfortable,room very clean and we were on the fifth floor and it was very quiet. Very busy at breakfast so did have to wait in bar area which didnt really worry us restaurant staff cleared table for us as quickly as possible and we had a great breakfast. Also very useful to have use of on site car park. Would stay again. August 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great stay My husband & I stayed for 2 nights the room was lovely & comfortable. The staff were really friendly especially the breakfast staff. All round we had a fantastic time wish we had stayed longer. We will be staying again hopefully very soon. August 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great service I can only say the obvious which is excellent customer service which started from the warm welcome message from the hotel manager. The bed was very comfortable and house keeping service team did very well in ensuring cleanliness all the time. Mr Maz, the reception manager, was exemplary of quality service with listening hear and magic solution skill. August 22, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Good staff, poor quality room furnishings Good location. Helpful, friendly and efficient staff, rather overwhelmed at breakfast. Room furnishings, chairs etc very poor and tired, threadbare and dirty. Likewise curtains. Hairdryer is in a drawer in the bedroom with a lead too short to be any use. Should be in bathroom. Many people prefer to dry their hair when showering etc but anyway the lead was too short soo you had to bend down to use it. Restaurant staff seemed overwhelmed at times on the brekfast serving resulting in tables being left uncleared for long periods and long waits for some items of hot food to be replaced. For rhe money, it was not good value August 22, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by stay at the Holiday Inn Portsmouth This hotel has great location, well maintained nicely decorated rooms and is efficiently run. August 22, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by good hotel to stay in this hotel is very clean and has wonderful staff, the beds are really comfortable and we had a good nights sleep. The hotel is in a nice quiet position but within walking distance to the docks and attractions. We had a meal in the restaurant and it was lovely. if we go back to Portsmouth I will definitely use this hotel. August 21, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by great service room excellent but the bathroom was too small had to slide around the door to enter.the staff were lovely and very helpful.would definitely stay again. August 19, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Friendly staff and nice food Very pleasant stay with comfortable surroundings, clean rooms and friendly, caring staff. Good facilities but it was too late to use any of them due to my arrival time! :-( Parking spaces were very limited, the wireless internet speed and reliability in the room were poor and the price overall was very high (and my company even paid a business rate!), so I wouldn't say it was great value. You paid for what you got. Also, I just couldn't get to sleep! Had to mess with the air con and still couldn't find a temperature that was comfortable. Didn't feel rested in the morning but at least it was a comfortable bed and pillows with black out curtains, although light did get in through the door. Complimentary consumables in the room were a nice touch! August 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Extra Service Enjoyed our stay at this hotel. My wife has a lactose intolerance August 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Friendly service, nothing too much trouble The staff were so welcoming on our arrival, we had small children in our party and was impressed to be handed comics, activity bags and balloons. The room was comfortable and clean and surprisingly "sound proof" didn't hear any other guests, which made me think/hope no one could hear small child! August 13, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Avoid the restaurant We stayed in this hotel because we had had a traumatic breakdown on the motorway and missed our ferry from Portsmouth. We need to relax to get over the experience. The room was lovely and the safe were friendly and helpful at all time but the food we were served was really poor standard and prepared by a very lazy chef with minimal preparation and presentation. August 13, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Enjoyable stay, good staff, good food, A* I stayed for two days, and thoroughly enjoyed the time, it was relaxing, the staff were polite, and friendly. I felt I could talk to them, on a level, and they were there to help, and were interested if I needed something. The food was fast, and good quality. I will be staying again, if I am in the area.
