“Ibis Budget Hotel Fratton Way Portsmouth”
Reviewed 23 April 2013

If you are looking for a budget priced clean modern hotel this is fine !

If you want a full English Breakfast rather than cereals, coffee and croissants pay more and go elsewhere .

If you want a more comfortable bed with sheets that are not hard with starch pay more and go elsewhere .

If you want a TV / Sat system with more than 5 channels pay more and go elsewhere .

If you want to be able to park in the hotel (or nearby) car park rather than the B&Q across a busy road and trading estate pay more ...you get the idea !!!

I had read previous reviews and looked through photos so I knew what to expect.
After a long drive we arrived late at night to a warm welcome; the staff were very pleasant and welcoming. The SatNav directions were easy to follow too.
Car parking is across the road behind KFC in the B&Q car park; you need to get a voucher from reception. There is a drop off point just outside the hotel so you can check in and drop your luggage off; it’s well lit for walking back from the B&Q car park.
The room was basic as I expected and all I really needed but very clean, much cleaner than any Travelodge I have stayed in! It was just for an overnight stay. We stayed in a triple room where a single bunk is over the head of a generous firm double bed; the bunk needed to be made up (not a problem). There was a TV, desk, stool, rail with hangers and a bin. The shower cubical is set back in the main room with frosted door for privacy. The sink unit was in the main room with good lighting for doing make up. As expected there was no tea/coffee making facilities or hairdryer. Soap and two towels were provided. You are only provided with one pillow each but more can be collected from reception if you wish (just remember before getting ready for bed!); as can a floor mat for the shower. The flooring is lino/laminate. There were two plug sockets in the corner by the TV, not so good for seeing in the mirror to do your hair.
Refreshments can be bought from the vending machines in reception, that is where you can buy breakfast too for £4.99 or you can go across the road to McDonalds.
For a place to lay your head or an overnight stay this is ideal; for an extended stay I personally would want more room.
What I liked most was the cost and I was impressed with how clean it was.

This is a really clean, modern and great hotel to stay in if your looking for 1-2 nights stay as its very close to porstmouth centre and it is just great. Yes its basic, but as long as its clean and the staff are accomodating theres no problem and no reason not to stay. The staff members I spoke to were all really helpfull and very welcoming. If you book just dont expect a hilton standard hotel as this is not it, however its perfect for anyone who needs a base for a night or two. I loved it and would happly stay here again :-).

My husband and myself spent a night in your portsmouth hotel (etap) and the room was freezing. With the heater on full power it still didn't warm up. After a few hrs of no sleep, we asked for more blankets, in which the staff politely obliged. I was disappointed, esp as the prices goes up on a wk end!!

Returning from Europe on a late evening ferry, this was perfect for overnighting. Very clean and comfortable, and 2 wifi codes so we could both catch up with emails..
However, we don't know Portsmouth and it was quite difficult to find. No hotels seemed to be signposted, unlike in European towns. But if we use the Portsmouth ferry, we will use the hotel again.

This hotel is defiantly only good if you want to get your head down for the night (preferably after a night out!!)
It's cheap and cheerful, the room was small and basic with a view of a fence!!
Perfect if you want an average nights sleep, not good if you want to impress!!!

Room exactly as we expected basic but very clean, absolutely ideal when all that is required is a room to sleep for the night and have a shower in the morning. The room is utilitarian in style but also modern and functional, overall very good value for money. The only downside as other guests pointed out was the lack of facilities to make a hot drink in the room.
