    This is my second time staying at this hotel and it does not disappoint. Steph (I believe) was a great receptionist. The beds were comfy and rooms immaculately clean. Toiletries provided and a great view onto the seafront. 10/10 would stay again.

    I'm so sorry I've just seen this! It's too far to walk. The hotel is in Southsea and you would need to get a taxi to Gunwharf.
