Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Clean accommodation, staff very friendly. Woken by noisy people in corridor. Room very hot although no heating. Breakfast great for husband but I would have preferred a more healthy option , porridge was ok but thereafter no fruit or yogurts available.

Stopped here for two nights attending a funeral in Portsmouth. Friendly and helpful staff and nice accomadation. In all about 17 rooms over two floors. A great breakfast was included in our booking and a good evening menu. Parking at the side of the Hotel was convenient and free. Would stay here again when in the area.

Visited for breakfast after being recommended by someone who stayed here previously. Very impressed with the breakfast, came out very hot, sausages were really tasty and cooked very well. Bacon could have been cooked slightly longer but still lovely. Definitely will be visiting again
