This hotel and club seemed an interesting idea We nearly passed it by as it seemed run down out front and a bit like a community centre . However once entered it does transform to a different place. The reception staff were fantastic and welcoming. They were very helpful and not over barring. The room was ok. The room looked OK and has the basics of a bed , ensure and offers swimming facilities. The condition of the ensuite is ok and basic. The Premier Inn has a better and updated bathroom. The room is outdated however it is clean, it does not offer access to iplayer or Netflix etc. For £120 a night not really sure if it's a good deal . The corridors are outdated , lifts break easily, wallpaper peeling , for a 3* place I would expect at least toiletries for two people not just 1 small tiny sample bottle. The staff at the restaurant were lovely and friendly. Breakfast is part of the cost but again you are better off at a generic motel as the breakfast was moderate. Food held in a hot hold and well turned rubbery . The buffet lacks vegan or vegetarian options, nothing is labeled in regards to natasha's law for allergies, there is no real continental breakfast unless you call mini out of packet crousient continental, jams and toast. The sausages and bacon were cooked really nicely. The biggest concern is the 19.95 set menu.. the fried goujons and prawns were lovely if a tad over cooked.. The sadness was the lack of presentation and sad veg that were offered if you didn't have the carvery or ordered off the al a carte menu. Veg was over cooked and limp. the becemel sauce was tasty but the rest apart from carvery dish was not. left me disappointed it was sad. the cheese cake was really basic.. the coulis was ok but not enough the organoplegic elements were just missing. you could have mistaken this meal for a dish at weatherspoons.. edible but in this case not worth it. This is a shame as it let's the place down as the front of house staff were amazing and commendable ... They made you feel welcome and were hospitalble.. A lovely front of house team.. shame about the rest . Personally if returning I would book something else.. especially for value for money..

Stayed 2 nights with friends on a re-union of student days. Very comfortable room, excellent breakfast and a great private buffet for 14 people. Staff are very friendly especially Katherine on reception who has an excellent welcoming character. Nice character to the hotel which is very well located for walking to many of Portsmouth's attractions.

It is a decently place to stay. The rooms are nice size and comfy.the furnishings are good. It is nicely located with easily walk to Gunwharf quays, historical dockyard and cascade centre. The staff are nice and friendly also very helpful with inquiries. Also has a decent breakfast selection. We did encounter an issue with the shower drain in that it wouldn’t drain but once reported it was solved quickly with minimal fuse. The other issue we had was the bedding was alright but not great quality or comfort.

Hubby and I stayed one Friday night. Very quiet! Very clean. I liked the old fashioned feel to it. Not every hotel has to be grey, silver and shiny. Liked the library with the big band music playing overhead. Very disappointed the hot tub was out of commission the whole time :- ( Nice walk to the Guildlhall. Expensive bar! Double bed is not a double but two twins pushed together -_- Very weak shower pressure and hair dryer. Utc milk in the rooms. Friendly staff that afternoon and night time, not so much in the morning. When I asked the kitchen staff if they had soy or oat milk, one girl looked at me like she had never heard of them before and when she asked another girl about it, a flat out No was all we got. If this is something they normally do have (as receptionist said), someone could have run out and got some from a local shop. I normally bring some of my own just to avoid the hassle but forgot this time. It wasn't stupid o'clock in the morning and they weren't busy so it could have easily been done. The dining room mood and music was dreadful, the food - ok -. Good quality napkins, though, lol... Would definitely stay again but they need to get breakfast/staff and the previously mentioned imperfections sorted out to make it worth over £100 a night.
