“Too Hot”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

Stayed for 1 night West wing. The room and most of the public rooms where absolutely boiling hot. No fans available and some of the windows would not open. Room was ok single beds fairly comfortable, Service ok bur nothing special good bar wide range of drinks and good prices. Breakfast plentiful but a bit tasteless. This is a nice idea and as a club for mariners it makes a lot of sense, as a full paying guest I would probably plump for a budget chain hotel. Brilliant location but doubt if i will be using it again.

Room Tip: Avaide the west wing in the summer

An interesting place .. Quite 30's in style. Teeny tiny lift. Rooms were quite roomy and stylish and clean. No personal laundry facilities which makes it difficult for international travellers. Breakfast was quite nice. An older style accommodation but quite pleasant enough.

There are two wings, and we were staying in the old wing (The West Wing). My brother stayed in the new wing and his room was much more modern & cleaner than my room.

My room was just next to the corridor's door and I can hear the footsteps & door opening/ closing sounds very clearly (from 11pm to 6am)....No air-conditioner or fan and so it was a bit hot inside the room. The new wing was much better.

Breakfast was good, location perfect (around 5-8 minutes walk from the train & coach station), Free wifi, staffs were polite.

Reviewed 28 July 2014

We stayed here on a Saturday night - visiting Portsmouth for no reason in particular - and were very pleased with its location (which can't be bettered) and its lobby & interior. The breakfast was excellent and the hotel place was beautifully clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Everything worked as it should and on the whole it was an entirely satisfactory experience.

Its downside was the heat - which was horrendous in July as no air conditioning - and the decor, which was very tired and in need of refreshment. The hem on the curtain was hanging down and the general look and feel of the (very clean) bedroom was dated and weary. These are cosmetic points though and easily remedied.

In addition, we thought the price somewhat over the top - given the room and its drawbacks. And the toaster was agonisingly slow!

Room Tip: If you go in summer, aim for as low a floor as you can. Heat rises and it was so, so hot in out thir...

So this is my first night ... It's now 0507hrs and I've been away since 0200hrs from people arguing in the street aswell as guests going back & fourth in corridor. Bed needs a new mattress as I can almost feel base on my back! We requested a family room as we have our 17mth old baby and got told none left only doubles... Lucky enough we brought our own travel cot! Roll on the next 24hrs so I can go home!
