The hotel was extremely dirty. I couldn’t stand to step on to the bathroom floor as it was so dirty and stained. Splash stains on the ceilings and walls. Floors clearly not hoovered. Broken fittings. Awful. Breakfast was inedible. Greasy, smelly and quite frankly disgusting so we had to pay to eat out for breakfast each day. The hallways of the hotel smelt strongly of baby products. It was strange. Location was good and reception staff were fantastic, particularly primrose. She moved our room but the second room was also dirty, not her fault at all as she explained that housekeeping are a separate company and she tried her best to make us comfortable. We were kindly offered a refund of one night, which was greatly appreciated. I wouldn’t stand here again and I wouldn’t recommend. In fact, it’s put me off all Holiday Inn hotels. Had it not been a break gifted to us, we would have immediately left.

Hi PTW7, Thank you for staying with us and for banking on our hotel for your travel needs. Although I am thrilled to know that you liked the location and that you found the service provided by our staff helpful, I am concerned to learn that we failed to meet your expectations on your most recent visit due to the issues encountered with the condition of the rooms and the breakfast options. The experience you described certainly isn’t what we want for any guest. I'm truly sorry for the letdown. I alerted the hotel management team, so they can improve on these areas. I also sent you a private message to follow up and obtain more details. I hope that you will give us the opportunity to serve you again in the future! Best regards, Jonathan A Case Manager IHGService

Excellent location near to Portsmouth ferry terminal. As a motorcycle traveller it was a welcome end to a tiring day riding. Fuss free check-in and a lovely room to get organised for the next day's ferry. The hotel was busy but having a bar and dining facilities was very convenient and the wait for dinner not too long.

Lovely greeting on reception. We had spent over an hour trying to locate this place. The sat nav stopped before the 'roundabout' who knew Eastern Road was in two sections. Several phones to the Inn to no avail, but at last asked our way and having left Gosport at six pm, finally checked in at eight pm. Manage to get food, rather noisy children up late, a dog fight in reception made the evening. Room beautiful, clean and quite large, felt welcoming. Breakfast quite busy, sadly as always cold. Not good. Coffee and toast/marmalade delicious. So much waste, but to be expected. Everybody we had any contact with were charming, helpful and friendly. Shall stay again.

Stayed here for 2 nights - 1 adult & 10 & 7yr old boys. Room was clean, bathroom decent size & all fine on this front. Breakfast was an absolute disaster - think Squid Games style survival of the fittest! Far too many people in the self service area - it was like Covid had never existed. Had to queue ages for anything & it was not the relaxing breakfast that I had hoped for. Impossible to get food for myself & 2 children at the same time as ensuring we kept our table as the only adult in our party. Food wasn't very good quality either. Such a shame & not the fault of the staff. Senior management need to drastically change the organisation of breakfast....

Hello HonestTraveller_10, We want a pleasant and comfortable stay for our guests at all times. I am sorry that this was not met, from the level of service received to the less than satisfactory dining experience. I have alerted the hotel management regarding your concerns. I know they appreciate your sharing your experience, and I am confident they will take steps for further improvement and make sure this doesn’t happen again. I am hopeful that your future stays with us will be pleasant. Thanks for bringing this to our attention. Best, Ronald R. Case Manager IHGService

The staff were great so can't fault them. The location is a good base....but everything else would stop us staying here again. 1. We booked a room for 2 adults and 2 kids, we got a room with one double bed and a small sofa bed set up with 1 pillow. The room did not sleep 4 people. After lots of back and forth we were given a complimentary room so slept separately. There were only 3 towels in the room too. 2. Breakfast was OK, it was a free for all and you would think Covid was over. Not enough tables and chairs, we had to have breakfast sat on low chairs and tables in the reception area, with kids too! 3. The evening food was pre-made, put in a microwave type. The food was luke warm. They had 3 items for kids on the menu but only 1 available. 4. Our 3rd night, the maids had taken away a used towel, even though it wasn't on the floor (happy to have reused), no replacement so only 2 towels on the 3rd night. Never had so many issues. Not somewhere to stay with kids, the the rooms don't sleep 4. Would recommend choosing somewhere else to stay.
