Upon arriving we were warmly welcomed by a gentleman at the reception. Although there was not sufficient parking, he was very informative about where else to park and luckily a student union parking spot was next door. Although you have to pay, it was only 2 pounds for 24 hr parking.

When arriving, the gentleman presented us with a welcome bag - Maltesers, banana and some slippers, which was a nice surprise, especially since we only booked one night. It was all done swiftly via their mobile application and then we ventured up to the room. The decor is very modern and artistic in style and the room was petite but made great use of the space. It had everything you needed for a weekend stay but I wouldn't enjoy anymore than that in that room. One issue I had was they had two towels for each of us to use for the shower but no hand towels so if you dont mind washing your bits with the same towel as your face then you are laughing really.

Breakfast the next morning was an absolute delight. It was all hot and was constantly kept on top of by the staff and the chef. The food was good quality and tasted very nice. There wasn't a huge selection of breads but if you like your croissants and a generic bread for toast then you cant go wrong here. Apart from my partner becoming disappointed with the fact that in the hotel room it advertised breakfast with pictures of avocado and other luxurious delights to then be presented with non of those suggestions then I would say that breakfast was a hit!

You then drop your key card into the box at reception and be on your way as though you were never there in the first place, ideal for those who hate awkward goodbyes!

We came to Portsmouth only for one night to visit our friend who recommended us to stay here. The hotel has parking space which was brilliant for us and also the parking is valid for 24hours, so despite the fact we have left the hotel we could use it for bit longer.
The hotel looks bit older from outside, but inside is nice simple modern interior. When we arrived we were lovely welcomed by one of the staff on reception (I think her name was Diana) who was very kind and friendly and explained us everything we needed to know.
The room was clean and tidy and despite the fact it was small there was everything we needed - comfy bed, chair and table, wardrobe and even hairdryer and coffeeteria so we could have hot drink while watching TV which was placed on wall with cool decoration around it.
The breakfast on Saturday (and I think even on Sunday) was served perfectly till 12pm, so we didn't have to wake up early after night out. We went for breakfast at 11am slightly sceptically that there would not be so much remaining, but there was really nice range of different goodies waiting for us! From full English breakfast, through ham and cheese to fresh croissant and pain au chocolate.
Also yogurts and juices were available and machine for coffees.
We were really happy here and will stay in again once we are in Portsmouth.

this was an excellent hotel for the journey we were having. ideally situated for the dockyard and gunwharf quays.
the staff there were more than helpful, nothing was to much trouble. the rooms were neat and compact and cleaned every day. we could park the car outside the hotel and walk to our destinations.
the only downside is if you do not like noise outside at night, winston churchill avenue can be very busy at all times and there are a few nightclubs which stay open till 3-00 am so you do hear a few idiots on the way home, but apart from that i would def go back there again.

This hotel was booked by my work, I wouldn't have chosen it personally but I was away on business.

The room was small and the bathroom smaller especially as I was in a double on my own and it was small even just for me. The room was hot and fan tiny and not great.

Breakfast was good and staff friendly when you could find someone.

This hotel seems to be like an upmarket hostel. A little strange feel about it

Never stayed in an Ibis before, so found the receptionless reception interesting! Staff were accessible and available and I got my key quickly and easily. The room was small but very well designed to fit everything in, although if you were a slightly bigger person, I'm only 5.2 the toilet area might have been more difficult to navigate! Only stayed one night. Sleep quality was good, and breakfast had everything that is expected. It is slightly more basic than other chains but manages to incorporate everything you need with minimum fuss and no bells and whistles.

Room Tip: This hotel has a central location but suffers from road noise so if this is an issue you ask to be l...
