This appears to have been recently converted and modernised. The room i stayed in was spacious, modern, with all the mod cons you would expect. The bathroom was extremely clean, with no signs of damp/mould etc and modern tiles, sink, shower. Wifi was very good through the hotel. I asked for a quiet room and that's what they gave me...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 14 March 2017

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...

This hotel was bought by Holiday Inn from Hilton and has been recently refurbished and up graded. The staff were very friendly and efficient and the facilities were excellent. The room was larger than usual for a Holiday Inn Express and the bathroom in particular was spacious, modern and spotless. The bedding and towels were new and of a very...

As a regular business traveller, there are a few things that I always look for in a hotel; easy parking, a comfortable bed, reasonable food and peace and quiet at the end of a long day. Oh, and free biscuits always help, too. Happily, the Holiday Inn offers nearly all of these, with only the biscuits being absent. The rooms...

I think Holiday Inn express are refurbishing all their hotels and this is a newly refurbished one. Very good. Breakfast was great. New coffee machines. Good hot food. Plenty of places to plug in your phone. Also they've sorted the rooms out so you can plug your USB in to charge your phone. Rooms look great and it's clean. Worth...

The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room on entering was colourful, full of very modern USBs and plugs, comfortable beds and a bathroom which at first glance looked very bright and colourful. Once settled in, there were a few grave omissions. The lighting was atrocious. Impossible for a lady to see to put on her makeup. A man...

There are a few Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express near here. This is the one that does not have a pool or gym but is recently refurbished and close to the main road so has easy access to many places without dealing with Portsmouth's rush hour traffic. As it is not in the centre the restaurant gets very busy...

I had requested a room that wasn't far to walk to as it is difficult for me. As soon as we checked in the receptionist we spoke to, had organised this for me. In fact we were given the room for those with a handicap on the ground floor just of the main area and it was great. The bathroom...
