“Good and comfy - but is it a bit pricey?”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 January 2014

Impressed all round by just about everything.
Only downsides were glum breakfast waiter of very few words and lack of bath anti-slip mat. Waiter with very dirty shoes could have done better by telling us that apart from good choice and range of buffet breakfast items we could also order some specially cooked dishes. Rest of staff had some cheery sparkle which you would hope for at this grade of hotel.
Lack of bath anti-slip bath mat could have reduced fall risk while climbing in and out, and standing up, in bath while trying to use awkward shower head. Would have been nicer to have shower cabinet. Room was quite plush and quiet.
Dinners were tasty but perhaps pricey - £13 for fish and chips and £11 for beefburger and chips?
Has spa/fitness centre with swim pool which are used by quite a lot of non-residents.

Room Tip: Ask waiting staff if, apart from what you see at breakfast buffet, other dishes are available before...

Stayed here on the 22/12/2013, as we broke up our journey from France to Yorkshire.

Hotel was clean, staff welcoming, and the room spacious, and the bathroom was a good size too, and very clean.

Slept very well, as in my opinion, this hotel has the best beds in Portsmouth, and a good size!!

Beats both the Hilton in Portsmouth, and Southampton, both lacking in good quality accommodation, as they look tired. This hotel bucks that trend.

Breakfast was mediocre though, but then again clean and welcoming.

I recommend this hotel to other travellers, on this trip it gets a good 8/10

Room Tip: I always ask for a non connecting room, thereby avoiding a noise from the other room, unless of cour...

Dear Guest,

Thnak you for staying with us and your nice feedback. I am also glad that Mr. Marriott decided to change all beds in the world at once, so we all have the same beds wherever you stay.

We hope to see you again soon in any of our hotels for a great night sleep.

best regards,

This was our first time at this hotel but having previously used all the several brands of Marriott we were confident that we would not be disappointed and we weren't !
This is a well maintained hotel ran professionally from the friendly welcome to the efficient check-out. Pristine room and facilities, courteous personnel, and very good value for what is offered.

On first impressions when we got inside, was good. Quick check in, and we were upgraded to a free breakfast as we have lots of Marriott points. We didn't use the leisure centre, but it looked really good. Rooms were comfortable, clean and nicely decorated. Breakfast was just yummy, good quality food that was really well cooked and plenty of choice. I would recommend a stay here.

Stayed for 3 nights for a little break away from it all. Lovely hotel. Lovely pool area, lovely rooms, lovely breakfast! Just lovely! We visited the area during our stay, historic dockyard, went to the Isle of Wight for the day and a bit of retail therapy on our last day! Will look forward to staying again.

We stayed here last week for the New Years Eve dinner with a party of 8 friends. We had a fantastic time and the hotel could not be faulted on any aspect of service, rooms, food, breakfast etc. did not make use of the pool area but it looked very inviting. The dinner dance itself was excellent, the food and service was spot on, the DJ and band, The Lionel's, were very good, value for money was good, wine a bit expensive but you expect that in an hotel. Overall a top class experience we will be booking for next year!

Wet back again this new years eve. Helpful staff, comfortable rooms, clean and tidy. Easy access. big car park. Kids love the indoor pool and breakfast was a delight. They have a starbucks in the lounge. Only annoying thing was the bag pipe player for new years eve but that is a personal choice.
