Stayed for business, Room was nice and spacious, staff friendly with good service. Very underwhelmed to receive 7 small pieces of Scampi with chips and insipid overcooked bleached peas for around £12 and then to wake up in the morning to water so cold you wouldn't shower in it and struggled to wash and shave with from the sink!

Overall I couldn't fault my stay here. The check in at reception was faultless and was greeted with a smile. There was a bar/cafe & breakfast area behind reception which was open & comfortable. There is a central courtyard area that looked very appealing on a sunny day, which had seating area's on inspection. The bedroom I had (99) was...

Good size, spotlessly clean and well appointed room. Friendly and helpful staff. Excellent value for room with breakfast for a location in Portsmouth. Unfortunately there were no meals offered that night, other than pizza or curry, due to the fact that is was a Bank Holiday. This would have been fine if we would have been informed of this prior...

I highly recommend a stay in The Holiday Inn Express, Portsmouth. It is suitable for everyone and very welcoming to families with large family sized rooms. As I stayed in a family room, i can say that it is excellent. The room is massive with a middle wall separating the double beds and a lounge area. Very modern interior and...

Couldn't fault our stay - room 271 was spotlessly clean, spacious and well equipped - the (relief) staff from the Southampton hotel who were on duty were fantastic and the breakfast was adequate and inclusive.

Portsmouth hotels are generally quite pricey so to get a Friday night two weeks before Christmas for £75 I wasn't expecting much. The hotel is easily accessible straight off the A27, but it's far away from everything else. Taxi to Portsmouth/Southsea is about £15-£20 each way. Check-in was a bit slow and I didn't find the guy checking us in...
