We have stayed here twice now. The car park has a limited number of spaces and can be very tight to park in, having said that it is for for purpose in my view. You just need to make sure you time it right to get a good space.
If check out is by 11.00 am, I would say that any time after that is good to aim for. You may not be able to check in to your room (generally from 3.00 pm) , but you can certainly check in with the Hotel Reception and log your car registration number with them.
There are cold water coolers on landings (I think) on all of the floors, which was as a great idea and was well used by us. The bar food was excellent, great sized portions and at a price that is reasonable for this type of establishment. The buffet breakfast too was varied and exceptional.The staff are very friendly and they really do seem to enjoy their jobs. We had our Yorkshire Terrier with us and she was made welcome by all the staff that we encountered, Our sea view facing room (306) was very large and spacious. All in all we had another great stay here and we will return. Price wise it may be a bit more than your average double room price elsewhere in Southsea - but is worth that for a great stay in a lovely friendly welcoming Hotel. Well done to all the staff. less
