Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ScottiJ197 Great Hotel, just a small walk from all there is to do
Really enjoyed the stay. The room was big and comfortable. Enjoyed the walk to both Gunwarf Quays and the Historic Dockyard. I also found the staff friendly and able to help. The workout area and pool felt both safe and comfortable.
Seemed very family friendly. A warning to those not willing to do a little walking, this hotel is a 10-15 minute walk from the mall and the HMS Victory. However, it is closer to the D-Day Memorial.
Overall, I"d recommend.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SargFowler Great location, good breakfast, quiet
Overlooking the Southsea common and sea, this is a great location.
The entrance, bar and restaurant are clean and modern.
Staff are polite and friendly.
The rooms are good with air conditioning and flat screen tv with HD. There's a safe in the room to keep your valuables safe (it's free too).
Includes ironing board and iron.
My room had a shower over a bath but it was nice and powerful.
Only had breakfast, but the choice was good and service brill. Only the scrambled eggs had cause for concern!
Parking is a bit limited, but we always found a space.
The location is only 10mins walk from Southsea or Gunwharf Keys, so is ideal if you're choosing a hotel to see these sights. It's a long walk to Portsmouth centre though.
Can't really fault the hotel and will no doubt stay again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by aged person Good experience
The breakfast was excellent. The choice and the quality of food could not be faulted.
It was unfortunate that there was only one member of staff at the bar on Saturday, 5th July at lunchtime, since the bar area was fairly busy and we did not get our drinks until the food arrived.
The staff were friendly and helpful.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Taz64 Comfy bed
Although had a comfy room my main complaints are the lack of parking spaces allocated to guests. After travelling for four hours or more I think there should be more spaces, but instead these are used by leisure members.
2nd complaint was the breakfast - food piping hot, served on cold plates, then having to eat your food under air conditioning units. Result equals horrible cold and greasy food.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Geoff C Ask for a decent sized bathroom
For a Holiday Inn, this is average in most respects. I have stayed at hundreds of Holiday Inns and have stayed at this particular one half a dozen times.
We were caught out by the size of the bathroom which was pitifully small. You fell over the toilet trying to close the bathroom door. 2 people simply cannot get into the bathroom together.
We only realised how small the bathroom was after completely unpacking and after a long tiring journey, couldn't be bothered asking for a room change.
The building is quite old but it is decent inside. If you get a reasonable sized bathroom it is fine but avoid our room - 624!
