poor bed - very uncomfortable

8/10 Very good

Southsea does rock.
Nice, clean basic hotel. Staff helpful, facilities okay, if you are prepared to share a bathroom. Not sure how the dining room was meant to work. TV had intermittent breaks in viewing and limited channels. Good location close to the beach, pier, local Co-op and the bus passed by quite close. Southsea is a very nice vibrant town. Glad I went.

Clean and basic
Hotel is clean, tidy and basic. Kitchen is for all hotel stayers so there is no kettle in your room. It's located in a fantastic place right by the seafront. Staff are friendly and helpful. Just remember your photo id when checking in.
