I wasn't sure what to expect after only paying £24 a night, but I was pleasantly surprised! This is an excellent budget hotel. The room was clean and thoughtfully laid out, with shower, sink and toilet neatly arranged inside a small room with enough space left for a desk & TV. The lighting was impressive too, with a nightlight positioned along the walls. The location was good, being a 7-minute walk from Fratton station, which serves London and Portsmouth Harbour. The room contained a double bed and a bunk, which was OK for me but it would surely be a bit cramped if three people were staying at one time!

The only problems were: no cooked breakfast (not really a problem as I popped across the road to McDonald's for breakfast, which was cheaper than the hotel's continental) and no tea-making facilities in the room. I really did miss having a cup of tea in my room so this might put me off staying here again.

But otherwise, perfect!

Very clean hotel with friendly staff.
The downside though was the.... SO VERY HARD BED.
Did not sleep at all well.... the hardest mattress we have ever slept on!!
The pillows were also very flat and small.

Right by football ground, I got there early and got a free parking space. Receptionist was really nice. Room basic as expected, but immaculate. Free wifi an added bonus. Difficult to fault at the price. If you want frills, go elsewhere!
