The Keppels Head is a lovely old building, but everything is just a little faded at the edges. Much evidence of former splendour. The same applies to the staff, who were very friendly, pleasant and helpful however. I had a comfortable and quiet single room with a large and efficient shower. The breakfasts were good and the dining room is rather grand. Situated right on The Hard, it is ideal for the station and Isle of Wight, Gosport and Brittany ferries. Also handy for the Historic Dockyard and the Gunwharf Quays shopping/entertainment centre. Staff in stab vests at the latter was rather off-putting though. Free private parking very close by is a big plus.
