Free parking! Nice room, and excellent staff.
Entrance a bit hard to find when you come out of the car park.
Comfortable, perfect location and staff were friendly.
no bacon at breakfast and a cold shower.
The friendly exceptionally helpful reception staff. They were very polite and treated every guest as if they were royalty. Could not find fault with anything. Excellent breakfast with plenty of choice.
friendly staff, good breakfast ,cheap car parking. and a very good price, would use this hotel again
Corridor carpets worn, frayed and dirty. Bedroom, where do I start? Room 248. Carpet dirty/stained, iron burn obvious. Matress cover didn't fit, so we saw the brwon stained mattress. Worst hotel mattress I've ever had, we rolled nto the middle, and it gave me backache. Yuck. Walls are pockmarked with what looked like a fight with heels or knuckles, so dreary and sordid. Lighting wasn't adequate, and can't imagine how a business person would be able to use the room for work. Bathroom - toilet roll holder broken, shelf sloping and not fit for purpose. Very, very disapponting. I would not recommend tis hotel to anyone, and have stayed in numerous 'budget' hotels with a high level of care and attention.
Location was excellent
Only one lift working, used the stairs instead.
the area /location /car parking. and the staff in reception
the furniture in the lounge area was very dirty and the fabric on the chairs badly needed refurbishing plus the carpet in our room was in need of a clean.
We used the hotel as a base to visit the Mary Rose and Victory in the naval dockyard. Check in was fast and helpful and when we went up to our room, there was a bottle of Cava and two swans made from towels with their necks in the shape of a heart. A very kind and much appreciated addition to our anniverary weekend. We also asked reception to recommend a restaurant and their choice was also excellent. All together, a very pleasant weekend, and one we hope to repeat.
Please get the second lift fixed !!

No bacon for breakfast!
Excellent location, right in the center of Gunwharf Quays and within walking distance to most of the "sights". Clean and comfortable room with everything needed. Staff welcoming polite and helpfull. Can't make an issue of poor wifi provision as it was free. Would stay again if in the area. JJ
Very close to university Free underground secure car parking Friendly staff Good value for money
No bacon at breakfast Dirty, stained carpets in corridors Iron marks in bedroom carpet
Great location Good and modern standard
Proximity to restaurants and visitor attractions
ideal location for Historic Dockyard. Rooms clean and very comfortable. We had a very good nights sleep. Excellent Continental Breakfast. Plenty to eat, Discounted parking in the underground car park was a bonus, Although there is not a restaurant there are many nearby and some offer discounts for Holiday Inn Express customers.
Staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel was central to so many things, shops, cinema, sea and plenty of good restaurants.
Nothing to say
Convenience to Gunwharf shopping. Comfortable. Free WFii
The breakfast is very poor standard. Not up to what I expect given the price of a stay
Proximity to Gunwharf Quays shopping and restaurants. 10 minute walk to Historic Dockyard. Comfortable room with view of Spinnaker Tower. Breakfast was excellent
We had no complaints
Comfortable and clean - suited purpose!
Difficult to find. Signs were above normal car driving vision!
location proximity to restaurants, shopping, museum good breakfast
double room too small, no space for luggage, I do not recommend to stay there
Location was very good
It was expensive for what you got breakfast was poor and breakfast area a bit small when people are serving them selves
Shower was not very good,
The location is the only thing this hotel has going for it.
Stayed here with our young baby, they only had one lift operational and that didn't work properly, 15 minutes before it arrived at our floor.
Almost every thing.
Carpets looking a little tired throughout did not reflect the otherwise good standard of rooms and service.
