Warm, friendly staff. Very helpful manager that continuously goes out of his way to make sure that the guests stay is as comfortable as possible. A generous breakfast with plenty of choice. Bathrooms are on the small side. Good location with swimming pool, Jacuzzi, sauna and steam room. Would definitely recommend.

Booked a table for two at The Holiday Inn Southsea. The restaurant looked great and the staff were fantastic. The food on the other hand was disappointing. My meal consisted of over cooked meat and undercooked potatoes, however it was replaced and the cost taken off the bill. Still not much better the second time. I would have expected better...

Nice rooms, bars food. Kids loved the pool and the sauna was great. Very clean and very friendly helpful staff. A great place for a weekend away especially if the kids like to swim. Not cheap, but reasonable for the facilitates, location and staff. We had a 5 star weekend stay.

First time at this Holiday Inn. Smooth check in, clean tidy rooms. Bathroom is a little on the small side but that's fairly typical in the UK. Great bar and restaurant with all day dining and tap beer. Free wifi. Reasonably centrally located. 5 mins walk to the Hovercraft station for your trip over to the Isle of Wight and...

Presentation of the room was pretty good at a first glance... Then started to notice some niggles! The hair-dryer didn't work high dusting was pretty much non existent! And the duvet sheet was put on the wrong way.... Toilet wouldn't stop flushing

Very comfortable large bed. I would recommend hotel to offer complimentary bottle of drinking water. No fridge in the room. The rooms are large enough. Very well located at a walking distance to Gunwharf and city centre. Friendly staff on the reception, housekeeping and in restaurant. Wood come again. Well cover with internet and fast wi-fi speed.
