Pembroke Park Hotel
Ranked #29 of 40 Hotels in Portsmouth
Reviewed 23 September 2013

My wife had some leave due from work a while ago which enabled us to enjoy a short break away together in Portsmouth which is a good place for shopping together with so many other things to see and do....We both love Portsmouth as it's such a lovely and interesting city.

Upon checking online beforehand,I discovered that most of the internet and tourist board booking sites' cheaper hotels and b&b's were full for either all or part of the time that we wished to stay in the city,and that those establishments which did have vacant rooms were charging what I call 'silly prices,' (I feel sure that you'll know what I mean when I say this!) some of which did not provide breakfast in the mornings,and quite frankly I'd prefer to stay at home(which although is not a palace is probably far more comfortable than some of these hotels would had been anyway!) rather than have to pay exorbitant over the top hotel rates, as like it or not I am a budget traveller.

In order to find ourselves a suitable room within walking distance of the city centre and 'Gunwharf Quays' I resorted to searching all the nearby streets using 'Google Street View' which much to my surprise came up with quite a few good alternatives which I hadn't previously discovered online, and the 'Pembroke Park Hotel' in Bellvue Terrace,Portsmouth,PO5 3AT appeared to fulfil all of our requirements, so I telephoned them and I was able to book us a room on a bed and breakfast basis costing £60 per night on the dates which we required.

We found the hotel's location was ideal as the 'Pembroke Park Hotel' was just a five minute walk away from Clarence Pier (for the Isle of Wight Hovercraft service) and a quarter of an hours walk away from both Portsmouth's City Centre and the 'Gunwharf Quays' both of which are excellent shopping centres with good undercover facilities should it decide to rain.
The number 23 bus stop is immediately outside the hotel and frequent buses serving Southsea, Portsmouth City Centre,and Havant(which is quite a nice town) leave from here,so as you can see it is quite easy to get around,and should you arrive by car the 'Pembroke Park Hotel ' can arrange an 'on-street' parking permit for you - so no worries there!

Our room, Number 2 located on the first floor was freshly decorated, very comfortable, bright and sufficiently warm,and it was most certainly one of the nicest hotel rooms that I've stayed in,and it actually contained a single bed in addition to a double bed,and the room had its own en-suite with a washbasin,loo and a shower unit which was impeccably clean and which had lovely soft fluffy towels,although I did feel that the lighting in the en-suite cubicle could had been a shade brighter knowing what ladies are like with their make-up etc.

There was television in the room, and you need not worry about over-sleeping in the mornings as an alarm clock was thoughtfully provided, and there was a most useful loose-leaf information pack kept in the room which gave many good suggestions advising guests of places of interest to go,together with a very comphrensive listing of the many restaurants and local shops which can be found in Portsmouth and Southsea.
Wi-Fi was provided in the hotel,and an 'ironing room' which was provided on the first floor was a thoughtful touch which I'm sure many guests would had found very useful indeed.

Breakfast times in the dining room downstairs were from 8am to 9am, and the breakfast which was very good indeed was served by the proprietress, who with her husband were most charming, courteous and helpful to both my wife and myself during the course of our short stay,and should you be seeking a good bed & breakfast establishment easily accessible to all of Portsmouth's amenities I'd certainly have no hesitation in recommending the 'Pembroke Park Hotel' to you, and I do trust that should you ever stay here,you will find it to be a very pleasant and comfortable guest house, just as we did.

Room Tip: Our room(No.2)was excellent,and I've no reason to doubt that the other rooms are not of the same...
