Expensive drinks, limited choice for breakfast
It was clearly a Holiday Inn, good layout and room easy to find. Relatively clean, but could be better. Had help from staff when I had to carry my cases up the stairs as lift was out of order - see other comments
The carpet in the room was badly stained, and needed a good clean! It was obviously hoovered but not nice. The bathroom had a lot to be desired, a fair amount of peeling paint and I felt the toilet could do with a bit more attention, not dirty as such but it looked dull!
The location was literally a 3 minute walk to my gig and the validated parking was a welcome add-on. The lady at reception was very helpful.
The signage for finding the parking station was very poor. The lifts were all unservicable on arrival... and departure. The hallway carpet is threadbare in parts and in need of replacement (I even saw a strip of gaffer tape on one large section). Lastly, the young woman on breakfast duty was as animated as a potato and as interested in her job as I am in watching paint dry.
Free wifi location Breakfast kind staff Gunwharf restaurant discounts
stain on carpet lifts broken
Fantastic position.Room clean, breakfast ok.
Lifts out of order, there was a sign offering help if you needed for bags,a bit of a pain though after a night out.
Excellent, accommodating staff Great location Comfortable room Very good bed Good value
Parking, while OK and inexpensive, in the regular shopping complex car park, was difficult to find at usual hotel arrival time of 3PM.
Breakfast pretty good. Good central location.
The usual Holiday Inn, paper thin walls which don't help at 3.00am when a gang of drunken blokes invade the room next door. Reception on 1st Floor. No advanced warning that lifts out of order.
Comfort of room Free parking
Lift not working Ice machine not working Bed moved on wheels when sitting up Powdered egg for breakfast
Staff very helpfully carried our luggage as the lift was out of order.
Lifts out of order, although staff helpfully carried luggage this would not be helpful or appropriate with prams/wheelchairs.
Comfort and location
nothing to dislike
Expensive for what it was Breakfast
lift not working, carpets well worn & stained, need a referb......
Very nice hotel with restaurant out side
Very steep stair and lift broke down be for I stay at there and very hard a wheelchair user using the stair
Staff were excellant!!
Repeating my heading the lift's not working and I had seen this mentioned previous.
Pleasant welcome with good breakfast. Great location.
▪ Lifts not working - not good enough ▪ Staff didn't offer much information on being asked questions about the area, buses, and general transport to visit attractions ...only referred to brochures, I think they should be more forthcoming with information
Perfect location, we went for a Christmas shopping trip so this was perfect.
There were no lifts in action whilst we stayed however the Porter was on hand to compensate thankfully.
Just about everything
Lift out of order for entire two night stay and although the inclusive breakfast was reasonable, at the higher than average room rates it was disappointing to find sausages substituted for bacon!
Assistive front desk staff. Location.
All elevators broken. Had to haul lots of bags up stairs. Breakfast overcrowded and tasteless.
Great location for gunwarf quays, excellent choice of restaurants.
Lifts not in use all week, very inconvenient, although i was called by a member of staff, on the second day of my stay to inform me the lifts were out of order., a bit late, but did not affect my stay.
Broken lift!!! when living on Floor 3
Friendliness of staff. Good choice of breakfast.
Within 5mins walking distance from the historic dockyard which was the reason we went to Portsmouth. Plenty of shops and places to eat within minutes of hotel. Room was excellent and clean, Breakfast was lovely. Free car parking was a bonus. (Free for 24 hours, £2 per day after that... bargain!)
It cost us £125 for one night for two adults and two children (6+2) which I thought was a bit pricey but I suppose you pay for location, location, location which to be fair, you couldn't get a better one.
Staff were incredibly welcoming and polite. Brilliant location, clean room and great facilities
I thought that with the lift being out of service our stay should've been discounted. I didn't ask because the staff were so nice!
It was as good as expected which wasn't very much. However, I was pleasantly surprised at the helpful staff and the location for my weekend was excellent
No Lift? A long walk from the car park, no special entrance from the car park to the hotel. A bit of a bun fight at breakfast, furniture was like a low grade cafe, not very exciting. I can't imagine what our European visitors think.
Great location.comfortable bed,friendly,helpful staff,good breakfast.
