Stayed here for 2 nights as was going to watch the Portsmouth v Plymouth football match. Also to meet up with some old Navy mates. Chose this a it was cheap and also near the football ground. It's a budget hotel and perfect for the price. Has a double bed and a bunk bed over it so perfect for 3 people. Shower is good, but a tight squeeze. Staff were friendly. Had the breakfast, but if I was to stay there again I'd probably walk over to the Macdonalds. Breakfast is basic, 2 cereals, toast and fruit. I managed to park outside the hotel, there are about 6 spaces.But if not you can park in the B&Q car park.

We stayed one night prior to catching the ferry to Spain... Staff friendly, room simple but clean, shower hot..telly worked, no tea making facilities but you could buy at reception... All in all, everything you need for a brief stopover for £40...

We try to stay at Premier Inns (they are cheaper than this budget Ibis) as you cannot beat them for comfort and cleanliness. However, this hotel was the only one available at the time. The room was very small but clean. The bed very low and rather uncomfortable and instead of carpet on the floor, they had a good quality lino. There were no tea/coffee facilites in the room but we took our own travelling kettle etc, so that was O.K. The soap provided was not much larger than a postage stamp, so would advise you to take your own shower gel. I very much liked the shower pod, and would love one at home ! The staff on the reception desk were very friendly and helpful and provided us with a good map of the town. We didn't have breakfast there as it look rather dull. There is a bus only a short walk away that will take you right into town.
This hotel is a little too basic for us. O.K. for one a one night stay.

Room Tip: Do remember to take shower gel !!

For a budget hotel it was comfortable, basic no frills but price good as just visiting my son at Uni and like to break the journey before returning. Very basic, good size bed, shower, toilet , decent tv channels. Parking was good as B&Q car park spaces if full at hotel; Just really missed a kettle so I could make a cuppa in the evening. Would not cost much more to leave a kettle even if people brought their own tea, milk etc. Staff very helpful and friendly.
