After coming to portsmouth for my partners work, we checked into this hotel.

The room was small but exactly what was needed for a night in the city. My 10 month old especially delighted in the lights that are touch above the bed, unfortuantly for us she decided to play with them as we were trying to settle her down!

It was very clean and the reception staff were very friendly both at check in and afterwards.

Booked this hotel last minute and was just £31 for a double room. Was not expecting much, but was pleasently surprised. Check in was quick and the staff very friendly, the room was compact and basic but felt quite cosy and very clean. It had a good LCD TV, good lighting with bedside controls, small sink area in the room with seperate toilet and shower compartments. There isnt an actual bathroom as such so not ideal but ok for a one night stay. The double bed was ok, quite firm and low down, but did the job.
On site car park was quite busy but reception advised me to use the B&Q car park opposite that was free with the hotel permit provided. Would stay here again if I could get another low rate.

The Ibis Budget Hotel in Portsmouth is situated right next to Portsmouth Football Club's ground, Fratton Park, on the east side of the city about 5 minutes by car from the many attractions on offer in this historic city. The rooms are small but very well designed and perfectly functional. The showers are first rate, the best shower I've come across in any hotel anywhere.

There were two issues which weren't good: the pillows were small and we'd have liked two extra but they had run out and the car park is too small for the size of the hotel. Some had to use the B&Q car park some distance away, no good if you have heavy luggage and/or disabled people with you.

All that said, for the price (we booked in advance and paid £27 per room per night) it is excellent value for money and we shall certainly be going back there.

For the price charged & the location the room & hotel were extremely good. the only issue was one of smell of drains as we entered the room. The room was very clean but we suspect that there is an issue with the drainage from the shower. However, if you want a basic hotel & don't want the city centre this is for you.

I booked 5 rooms for family to attend a wedding and at £28.50 a night (I booked early, on the day it would have been £48) what a bargain for a Friday night.
We were all on the 3rd floor i must say for a budget hotel it is a lot quieter than more expensive ones i have stayed in.
One of our party had a room right next door to the lift/stair entrance and never heard noise at all.
The room was just what you needed a bed, TV, a brilliant shower but most important it was spotlessly clean.

I must point out the lovely Polish girl on reception. What a joy, pleasant, well mannered and couldn't do enough to make our stay as easy as possible. The other staff were just as nice but this is the one i had booking me in.

When i came down to the reception in the morning the first thing she asked was how the wedding went. How lovely of her to remember.

This is definitely on my use again list and I will be recommending this to anyone who has to go to Portsmouth as it is so central to wherever you need to go.
