We stayed here for a weekend break and had a disabled room.
The room was overlooking the car park, so it is disappointing that they think Disabled people dont want a room with a view.
The shower was odd, the floor in the bathrrom was flat and the water did not drain away as it should have done, leaving a great puddle evertime we used the shower. I think we both got althleics foot from standing in puddles of water, so no marks for that.
The breakfast was OK but the rate way overpriced for no cooked breakfast.
We were caught out on Saturday night as all the restruants were full and it was pouring with rain so we had to order food brought in from another place, it was Ok but a bit cold.
The extra charges are very expenisve to £1.50 for a cup of tea, £8 to use the gym down the road.
The decor could do with some updating, purple squares everywhere, not very tasteful, I dont know how much they paid the interior destiners but I reckon the local junior school could have produced better paintings.
I would get rid on the purple/blue /cream and put more subltle colours in, Premioer lodge is another one for using the purple.
The hotel is great for the shops and their is a tesco express next door which was raking in the money from people who did not want to pay the bar prices around the quay.
All in all a nice weekend but we will look for somewhere better value to stay next time we are in Portsmouth.
