Three of us stayed here for two nights last week. We booked two rooms and had a 4 am check-in for the first night. I was worried that they might cancel our rooms as "no shows", so called ahead to let them know we would be very late. They made a note on our record and we had a very...

A functional, unpretentious clean hotel. Not a great location for surrounding places to eat and next to a motorway and Service Station, was pretty noisy. The car park was unlit, which made parking at night difficult. Check-in took a little longer than I thought it would. My room was a decent size, with fantastic heating air- con. The bed was...

I wouldn't normally bother rating this type of hotel because in theory they're all the same, but having now stayed at pretty well all of them in this category I was blown away at the overall difference in standard. When you enter the hotel and also the room, they make a big deal about all the changes and investment they've...

My husband and I stayed at the hotel last night and we were greeted by the most friendly and attentive staff. We enjoyed drinks and food in the bar and breakfast was excellent. We would like to especially say a thank you to Danny who took care of us and made our visit feel like nothing was too much trouble.

We weren't expecting anything special from this hotel, we just needed it to spend the night in Portsmouth before getting the ferry to Spain the following day. What a surprise! The staff were incredibly friendly, greeting many returning customers as long-lost friends. The receptionist who dealt with us took us under her wing, and organized supper for us, made sure...

We stayed here for just one night before getting the ferry. It's a lovely clean and friendly hotel. We stayed in a ground floor, easy assesible room, as my husband had just had an operation. The room was large and spotless. We couldn't have asked for more and the free breakfast topped it off. Amazing price too!

Stayed here on business for one night, i use Holiday Inns a fair bit and this one shone out. Its been recently refurbished and is spotlessly clean. I had a great room with double bed ad plenty of room. The Express breakfast in the morning is adequate.
