We stayed here last weekend for a Naval dinner and get together. Apart from the stunning view from our sea front room, the complete lack of noise from the road when both sets of windows were shut and the tasty food, we were completely delighted by the helpfulness, the cheeriness, the politeness and courtesy of the staff. They were amazing. This was borne out by the fact that on the Friday night there was another function going on at the same time, then on Saturday - there was a wedding, our ASWI do with 90 guests, another family function and a 4th function. Seamlessly the staff dealt with everyone from the different functions, and the bar was never too crowded as there were spaces available for all.
The afternoon tea with scones, ham, cheese or salmon sandwiches and tea/coffee was delightful and really good value for money. The meal in the restaurant was fantastic as was the dinner on the Saturday night. Oh and the bed was huge and so comfy - no shoddy past their best mattresses in this room. Several of us have already said we will return there again for a weekend break - with Gunwharf Quays close by we didn't get the chance to go there this time, but we did visit the Marines Museum and Portsea Castle a few minutes walk along the seafront. A quick tip for American readers, the Beatles stayed here four times and royalty has been here too - read the potted history cards available free of charge in the hotel. less
