Had a lovely weekend break in Portsmouth, enjoyed staying at The Marriott.
Lovely breakfast in bed.
The pool & spa are very nice and had a relaxing time in there.
Nice to sit at the bar of an evening, great atmosphere.
This hotel is worth a visit.

Stayed: December 2013, travelled as a couple

I booked a weekend away for my wife & I, we choose the Marriott Portsmouth.
The initial cheak-in was great and our rm was ready early for us,which i had requested by phone..
My wife had a stressful couple of weeks @ work in london, so i booked her into the hotel spa centre, she loved it, an hr's massage, great service, very friendly.... I sat in the bar and watched the sports they showed on the giant tv, and had a couple of beers while i waited, reasonably priced,good service. after returning from the city we eat in the restaurant a light dinner, we had to wait a while to be seated which was the only negative(the staff just seemed to ignore us at the desk). But after we were seated it was quite efficient and we were able to get a fast meal and return to rm for a world cup game in time...
Cheak out was again good and friendly...
The only negative thing about the hotel is its location... A £10 ride in taxi from city centre... On the outskirts of Portsmouth..

We have been travelling to Portsmouth several times a year for the best part of 20 years and have stayed in many of the main hotels in the city i.e. Hilton, Holiday Inn, Premier Inn. The one we keep coming back to is the Marriott. There aren't huge price differentials between the Marriott and the other hotels but we find the Marriott is generally a cut above its competitors. The rooms are of a good standard, and last time we stayed we had a massive, extremely comfortable bed. Breakfasts are better quality than the average hotel with more choice and everything cooked properly (when a lot of hotels undercook their bacon and sausages). Service was friendly and efficient; plenty of spaces in the car park and once you work out how to get to the hotel, it makes for a good location from which to travel into Portsmouth

Chose this hotel because of its location but it turned out to be extremely noisy. The rooms were clean bed comfortable, but ordered room service at 2215 and over an hour later it still hadn't arrived

For the price I paid I've stayed in better

Dear Guest,

Thank you for staying at our hotel and your feedback. We are replacing the cladding and windows hopefully this year with the support of our owners and this will ensure proper insulation from noise and weather.
At check out you have mentioned this issue and the late Room service order to our Front Office manager and we have tried to follow up and investigate.
As discussed, please use her business card, which she gave to you for a free upgrade for your next visit.

Good menu in the bar, could do with the aircon turned down a bit. Comfortable rooms. Very welcoming and helpful staff. Free car park for guests. Prices are reasonable but get hiked for events in the area.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your great feedback and staying with us last weekend. Due Festival of Speed in Chichester the demand for bedrooms increased and all hotels in the near vicinity charge a Special Event rate.

We hope to see at another date and please check the marriott.com website for better value dates.

We had a few problems with the room but the staff were courteous and helpful. Following my visit I contacted customer services who responded quickly and to my total satisfaction. Overall the hotel is excellent. Clean and comfy, easy to locate and super facilities.

Stayed here for one night and I have to say it's a little tired now. The décor is fine and the staff pleasant enough but things just need a little make over.

Don't get me wrong, there nothing to complain about on the whole and it was clean and tidy just a little worn out I guess.

There is a particularly strong smell of Chlorine from the swimming pool if you sit in the bar but sit far enough away and it's not too bad.

Breakfast was fairly basic but again, Ok so that's it, it's just ok.

One very positive comment though. the beds are EXTREMELY comfortable!

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your feedback and staying with us. I just wanted to let you that our lobby was completely renovated in 2009 and the Great Room created, our bedrooms were complete renovation with new case goods and new Marriott bedding package in 2007/2008. We are working on a new facade and new windows with our owners and will start late 2014. The plan is to renovate the bathrooms in 2015. We have installed a CO2/Salt sanitation system for the pool toavoid any chloride scent in the Great Room, I wil let my engineering team know and investigate this.
Our breakfast buffet and a la carte offering is a UK Marriott Standard we are always adding new items and changing items guests don't eat.

Thank you for your feedback and we hope to see you again soon.

Best regards,

BJ Schreuder
