And that's more or less a compliment! If you want modern boutique style, forget this one, if you don't mind a more traditional appearance and atmosphere then this hotel will satisfy.
Not expensive (B&B £85 Sun night, £115 Mon night) for a huge sea view room. Excellent queen bed, quick wifi, bathroom very clean and everything worked. Tea and coffee tray with decent biscuits.
Very pleasant staff all round, anxious to please and helpful with local directions etc.
Free car park, bit tight but competent drivers will cope.
Really good breakfast, with buffet and fresh cooked eggs of choice, and even Kippers!
Less good things.....
Don't bother with the bar if you like real ale. Plenty of good pubs about 10 minutes walk up Waverley Road into Albert Road.
Where did they get such skimpy pillows......
If you're in town for the Historic Dockyard attractions, The Mary Rose and Victory exhibitions and plenty of other stuff, which we found well worth the high cost, leave your car at the hotel and take bus No 1 from the stop about 100 metres away from the hotel, it will save you really expensive parking at the Dockyard.
