... sad to see her go but we got a new leader the next day. It was nice to see a new face. Alice is from Scotland and we were her 4th center in 3 weeks. She was happy to have a place to stay for a whole 2 weeks and was a blast to hang out with. The next two weeks were a bit of a repeat of the first three just in hyper drive! They went by sooo fast! We did ringwood walks, London, Oxford, Bournemouth and so many discos and activities. I won't go day by day (particularly ...

... 50mph…. The customs lady called us forward and asked me where the boot was on the car? I pointed at the suitcase which rather confused her so she asked me to take the case off the car and place it in the scanner and myself through the metal detector. Anne did not have to get out nor did the lady search the rest of the car, I guess all it proved was that the contents of the case and I were harmless, I think we have all known that for some time.

On arrival to gunwarf, the hard bus and coach station I struggled with my extremely heavy back back to the taxi, whilst Jaz helped me by taking my smaller front pack (now my day bag). Big hug goodbye, forgot ballon waaaaa and ...

    Low budget, but lower quality

    from

    We spent two nights in this hotel and would not do it again. The double room was extremely small & it had no space for the luggage - once you had put your luggage into the room, you could only jump over it to get to the bed or the bathroom. Regarding the tiny bathroom: there was a space of about 20cm between the door and the floor - probably to make sure that the person you share the room with could listen and see what you're doing inside! The TV in our room was not working but was repaired for the second day of our short stay. The staff was not friendly & even less helpful. Non smokers cannot probably stand to stay more than 5mn in the hall as it stinks smoke. The only convenience of this hotel is really to be in the city centre, but still too expensive for such a poor quality.

    Very disappointing

    from

    I have just returned from meet a group of friends here. The reception/lounge area was clean and spacious.

    I then went to my room, it was a single. I found it to be very modern but small, with no actual cupboards to put your clothing in. There were shelves, which were very small but all clothing was on display. The wardrobe was two pieces of wood behind which were the small shelves.

    The lift is operated by a 'card' as is the entry to your room. Several people found it hard to use, not me I am up with modern technology.

    The shower-room was very small. Everytime you had a shower the curtain stuck to your body. There was no heat in this room, the only way to get heat was to leave the door open! There was also a port-hole next to the small toilet, which several members of the group commented on.

    The bed had much to be desired! It was a thin mattress on a piece of chipboard! It was just so uncomfortable I couldn't sleep on it. Again several members commented on this.

    In the afternoon I ordered a jacket potato with baked beans. I have never seen it served up like this! It was in a small dish smothered with beans. When I eventually found the potato it was undercooked and the beans were cold. Very disappointing.

    There were not enough staff to meet demands and found the bar area unattended on a few occasions.

    The breakfast is continental style and the times were very good.

    It is in a good location for the town and the railway.

    In all a very disappointing break. I will not be returning to the IBIS hotels nor would I recommend them to anyone.

    Without doubt the worst hotel in the South of England

    from

    I never like to start with the bad points but sadly there were no good points to highlight.

    Small Rooms, Ink Stained Sheets, Upon requesting extra pillows I had to go down to reception to get them.

    The all day snacks turned out to be a vending machine that only took exact change.

    The Breakfast only consists of a Continetal there is no option for a cooked breakfast something that in a British Hotel I find unacceptable.

    The hotel does have a carpark that allows for roughly a third of the space required and is mostly taken up with skips and wheelie bins.

    I would have rather (and will in future) spend the money on a taxi. I wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone unless there really is no other choice and all the park benches are taken.

    Ibis portsmouth

    from

    it is with regret that I have to say this hotel was not proffesional at all I attended a function for the commandos and not only were the staff arguing with guests when I arrived it carried on the whole time we were there through to the next day. I have never heard so many complaints

    I myself had sheets with tissues stuck to them and from my room a camera and a new botlle of perfume went missing. for dinner we were led to the only table abvailable it was four seats and there were six people in our party, the next day for breakfast we qeued for over 1/2 hour. I am making enquiries to see what can be done about the missing items.

    Tiny tiny sad place

    from

    VERY small rooms with only shower - no bath.

    Helpfull service - but only at the desk. Don't expect them to help you carry your luggage.

    Good buffet breakfast.

    So expensive ! Avoid !

    Hated the thin sheets and smoky bathroom

    from

    Small room with closet that had no space for my Samsonite luggage. Even smaller bathroom, with smoke coming in from neighbour's cigarettes.

    And, last but not least, smallest bed I have ever had with thin sheets that could not keep me warm.

    Luxurious

    from

    I found my stay very enjoyable my en-suite room had everything i could posiblly wish for i also was very inpressed with the impecable service I recieved and would recommend the ibis to any one thinking of staying in portsmouth or southsea plus it was resonably priced Written by Dr.T.williams

    Good basic hotel

    from

    Stayed here for a weekend basic small rooms but clean, restaurant/bar not much good suggest you eat out, lots of pubs restaurants in the area central to everything. Breakfast not very good

    from

    Yes, I stayed overnight here, while traipsing around visiting chat-friends.

    The hotel was pleasant, staff friendly, and emenities a welcome suprise.

    Room was secure, light, airy, well-appointed, and even though not luxurious - very comfortable bed, nice hot shower.

    Breakfast was buffet style with a wide range, and hot food was HOT.

    Very pleasant stay - wish I'd had more time to stay longer.

    Eventually I will write a full accommodation review, and link it from my travel pages.

    Hotel ibis

    from

    Room suitable for overnight traveller clean, basic, bathroom facilities very small but adequate. Restaurant, bar and reception all together, but there are lots of pubs and restaurants within walking distance very central to everything.
