“Nice Place, But very far”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 January 2013

I have been staying in this HOtel for an year now (On Company Expenses Ofcourse). It has been a nice experience. The Hotel Staff is very friendly. And everyone is helpful too. But it lacks the Executive Lounge facilities which most Marriotts have. Not good breakfast. It hasnt changed since an year. Also it is quite far from the actual city. Though it faces a Marina (If you are on above floors). Its a good place to stay for vacations and peaceful stay.

Stay here quite often when travelling always excellent service and clean tidy rooms. Beds are exceptionally comfortable and a nice size. Enjoyable free leisure facilities including pool and jacuzzi!! Not far from port solent which has a nice variety of bars and restaurants if you fancy getting out of a lunchtime or evening!!

We stayed here for a 4 night post Christmas break.

Very good value for money and breakfast was included, which I must add was more than adequate.

Rooms were of a good size, clean and with all the extras you need for a short stay hotel. Service was very good.

Indoor pool was a nice extra we hadn't expected.

There is nothing I can fault really!

Perfect location for Gunwharf Quay, Port Solent etc etc

Would return again for short break

Room Tip: Children's activities only listed as 3 as the swimming pool assistants wouldn't let the chil...

Having stayed at this hotel many times before, the very good standards have been well maintained. Although out of town, the close proximity to Port Solent amenities where there are plenty of eating and drinking outlets. The walk to Port Solent is easy and safe. Adjacent to the hotel is a Beefeater restaurant for another choice. Plenty of car parking spaces.

Room Tip: Higher rooms have some better views with some with views towards the Solent.

Room was spacious with TV, chair, double bed and office desk and chair. Well packed minibar with everything you could imagine (at a price of course).
Tea and coffee making facilities in room. Bathroom had toiletries and had a great shower and good size bath. Room and hotel was very clean throughout. Doesn't seem as old as it is and has been kept modem and clean. Nothing looks tired.
Comfy beds and plenty of pillows. Plus a pillow menu if you're fussy.
It's right off the M275 so perfect access if you're staying I'm business. Not the hotel to stay at if you're planning a night out in Portsmouth as its too far outside town.
Lots of parking available and safe to leave your car (that's the reason I picked it).
Checkin took seconds. Leisure facilities were available but I didn't get chance to use them unfortunately.
Would recommend and will be staying here again.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your comments and we are pelase that you enjoyed your stay, being a bit outside the main city also has an advantage to get around Portsmouth a lot quicker, so if you are planning multiple trips in the South of Hampshire you can get everywhere quickly due to the good motorway connection and still have luxury and comfort within the hotel.

hope to see you again soon,

I was very disappointed by my stay here. The hotel was booked as a surprise for my husband. The plan had been for him to have a sailing lesson the following day and on the day of check in, we relax, use the spa facilities and order room service.
Upon check-in, there was no one to assist with the door, our bags, or just greet us . We then proceeded to wait for a good 20minutes before being attended to by reception. Granted there was a wedding going on at the time. The place was very noisy and appeared abit chaotic.
The room was bog standard. A view of the parking lot to accompany a freezing cold room until we located the heating switches. No slippers, no robes, barely enough towels. The bathroom was a nice and the shower was powerful.
Bed: Was ok. Two twins pushed together though. I'm not a fan.
Room service food: don't bother. Expensive, bland and arrived cold.
The spa: The place was packed. That weekend must have been a busy weekend because there was barely room to get into spa at all. Noisy and crowded. Not the things you need to help you relax.
On the day of my husband's sailing lesson, we had to ask the front desk to order a taxi 3x and when it arrived, they didn't tell us! I was feeling quite fed up with the place at this point. I truly didn't feel like any care or attention was being added at all. That we were just another number.
The rooms and corridors look abit tired and dated. A lick of paint could help upstairs. It appears that all the money was spent modernising the the reception area with strange objects...some kind of art I think...
The only reason I gave the hotel 2 stars was because the breakfast was fantastic. Full English and continental buffet with an array of hot and cold beverages .
Also the proximity to the water front was perfect for my husbands sailing lesson.

Room Tip: If you are on a business trip, this may be the hotel for you. It's impersonal, busy and the room...

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your feedback and getting back to me with the details of your stay in August 2012. I am sorry that we did not deliver on all points. I just wanted to let you know that August is the busiest month of year with a lot of leisure business and families.
Also in August we hold 14 weddings, since we are a popular wedding destination in Portsmouth. We do offer porterage and have 2 dedicated guest relations officers in August, they might have been with other guests at your time of arrival. All our rooms were renovated in 2007, but we do not offer bathrobes and slippers in our deluxe bedrooms. We do have 89 king bedded rooms, so please ask for this bed type for your next visit. We do apologise for the taxi not arriving, it sometimes happens when a taxi is called other customers wait outside and get in and tell the driver to move on. I will send you a voucher for an upgrade to one of our Superior Rooms for your next stay and we will look after you then. Please contact my office directly and ask for Helen Beard, my PA or myself.

best regards,

BJ Schreuder
General Manager

I Stayed in a family room with my husband and two young daughters (3 & 6), the room was light and airy, well equipped, very clean! The hotel staff were polite and helpful. The bar area was calm, relaxing with an extensive cocktail list. The pool and leisure facilities were clean, child friendly and well staffed. Buffet breakfast was great, huge range of choice!! As was the room service menu, prompt service and well priced. A lovely hotel!
