“good value, comfortable, clean and basic accomodation, excellent location”
Reviewed 11 August 2011

The Royal Maritime is located right next to the Royal Navy Dockyard, with a short walk to the port and the city centre. The parking is limited but they provide excellent alternative space opposite. The wonderful entrance hall and communal areas remind one of being on an old ocean liner, very classic. I was in the West Wing, of which the communal areas need a bit of refurb but the rooms were absolutely fine. I had a single room but it came with a queen size bed which was a nice surprise, it was on the quiet side street and had an enourmous bathroom. There is a small, clean swimming pool and steam room which I used every day and was virtually empty. They serve a very good buffet style breakfast. This is a members club which is run as a hotel and here is something old fashioned and atmospheric about this place, which I really liked.

One night stay.. which we had the luck to be in a recently refurbished room with all mod cons and has been done to a very good standard. Reception staff all helpful and polite. Breakfast nice and service good. An all round good stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a newly refurbished room

We stayed here for one night on 8th June. The Club is being refurbished, great location, but a bit tired. Quiet clean, nice breakfast. No off street parking. Great Staff.

I came to Portsmouth one morning by train, just to see the Historic Dockyards, and stayed at this hotel because it’s right next to both station and Dockyards and wasn’t too expensive. Gotta say, though, that—apart from the upscale shopping mall at Gunwharf Quay—not much else going on nearby; in retrospect I should have taken the train onwards after the Dockyards closed at 5:30, rather than spend the night in Portsmouth. That said, the hotel isn’t bad: interesting history, odd layout, nice big room and bathroom, fast internet; the bed wasn’t great. Had some cheap, fearsomely spicy Indian food from the place next door.

I really enjoyed staying in this hotel.Less tan 5 minutes walk from the Harbour & the naval Dockyard.
The rooms are nice were just the job for me as i was just sleeping & having Breakfast. I spent of he days sightseeing with not getting back to the evening.

Breakfast is buffet with a good selection & is helped by some very friendly staff.

The hotel has lot of character with a old colonial feel which i thought was fine as i like that sort of place. Staff were excellent & very helpful.

Ideal place for someone like me you does not drive.

Room Tip: The website does double rooms for sole occupancy.

Having stayed at the Club, I would not recommend anybody staying at this venue and I would not stay there in the future. The general decor is very tired, the rooms are very tired and shabby looking. Also, when somebody opens a door and it slams shut, it vibrates through the floors and is very noisy. The food was not particularly good, the plates were cold at all times, if you had the cooked breakfast, the grease was laying on the eggs and sausages. However, I must give praise to the staff of the dining room, if you required anything, they were more than willing to help. Although one of the Chefs!!! was not helpful at all when asked if he could supply an alternative menu, the swift answer was no, hence I went out to eat instead of staying in the club.

Room Tip: Go Elsewhere
