My husband and I and our two children, 13 and 11 stayed here for two nights to do the attractions of Portsmouth and nearby Beaulieu. The hotel is in a fabulous position with lots of restaurants to choose from, would recommend La Tasca, but plenty of choice for either families, couples or singles, it is walking distance to the historic dockyard, spinnaker tower and gunwharf quay shops and restaurants. The hotel itself is fairly impersonal, but extremely clean, new and bright. The continental breakfast was very good also. The only real issue we had was the room was very small for a family of four, we took our own blow up bed because the sofa bed was not suitable for two older children, especially a boy and a girl, but we knew this would be the case, but wanted the location, so prepared ourselves for this. However the room was still small for four and hot, there was air conditioning, but this was loud so not ideal at night, so we didn't sleep particuarly well. However, I would recommend this to others, especially a couple wanting to be within walking distance to bars and restaurants and families with smaller children.
