Stayed here many times on business, always up to standard.
Restaurant and bar can get very busy in evenings with holiday coach parties but 15 minutes walk takes you to very good selection of restaurants.
Sea view costs a little more. beach and pier only 20 metres away.

The hotel is situated across the road from a small pier - generally a good setting with views over the sea. First impressions are good - the hotel has a charming exterior.

However, please note if driving that parking can be quite crowded, I had to park on one of the side-streets near by - only a short walk but not a great start.

Staff are pleasant and helpful but the hotel is quite dated. Rooms however are clean and of a good size with everything you need. I actually had a really good night's sleep.

The hotel is a short walk from Southsea high street where I ate, and close to local attractions, which is a plus.
On the whole, the hotel is good for the price and recommended for those on a budget.

stayed here as we were visiting the Mary Rose museum and historic dockyard,about 2 miles away. Very impressed with this hotel, from check-in to check-out the staff were, without exception, friendly and efficient. Our room was clean, spacious and very comfortable. Breakfast was probably one of the best I have ever had in a hotel. Southsea itself is a pleasant resort, excellent pubs and restaurants and a fantastic Edwardian theatre, all within walking distance of the hotel, will definitely stay here again.

Stayed for two nights on a leisure break (bed, breakfast and dinner deal) to visit local museums etc. Great Stuff! Good value and really enjoyed it. The hotel is old and has obviously been well used, the furniture and fittings are not only 'retro' but the real thing! However, all of this is more than compensated for because the staff (every one of them) are just marvelous. Nothing was a chore for them and they always had time for a chat and laugh with you. In our case, the room first allocated had a disabled shower fitting in it. We just asked if there was one available with a normal bath etc and they moved us to one straight away. The meals were fabulous, as was the dining room service itself. As one of the previous reviews says, the breakfast must be one of the very best available in the nation. The lounge bar was very convivial and always someone there to have a chat with. The hotel location is probably second to none in the area, straight out the front onto the sea parade and pier at the better end of Southsea. Make sure you book a sea view room, the view is brilliant. In our case, it was the night of the windstorms....so we could sit in our room watching it all come in from the sea! Overall, a great atmosphere and well worth a stay.

Room Tip: Go for a front facing sea view room, well worth a little extra!

Stayed here on business, the hotel is in a good location on the sea front and is a decent place to stay, its a little dated and could do with a bit of updating in parts but its good value and the staff are friendly and efficient. The rooms are comfortable enough and It has free car parking at the back which is always a bonus. The breakfast room, service, food choice and quality is really good so cant go wrong really, its a good experience and recommended.
