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...

Our stay here felt like a step back in time which is meant as a compliment. Stayed at a very competitive rate as off season but enjoyed a clean, good-sized room with all the small details expected at an establishment charging more. Staff happy to help. Only slight disappointment was what felt like a 4' 6 " bed when there...

Stayed for 3 nights on a line dance weekend and was really impressed with this hotel. My room was stylish, comfortable and had everything I wanted. The food was excellent and the staff were friendly and helpful. I will definitely return.

I spent one night at the Royal Beach with my grown up daughter. We had a lovely sea view room which was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The breakfast was tasty with a good choice including poached or scrambled eggs cooked to order. The staff were all helpful and friendly. I am looking forward to staying again in the future.

The great points - amazing views, good sized rooms and a fillet steak that would give some top London restaurants a run for their money. The bad points - parking. Absolute nightmare. Worlds smallest and tightest car park which was full. No real parking anywhere near due to building work. Not really what I needed after a 13 hour day....

Lovely and warm, fantastic views out to sea and the pier. Giant full length floor to ceiling windows, sat and watched a storm from them one night. Massive bathroom, although a little disconcerting having a full window alongside the toilet even though it was opaque. Fantastic selection at breakfast, with beautiful chandeliers.

The hotel isn't bad per se, but there is a lot to be desired as far as service and location. Yes it is on the water but that's about it...you will have to walk to anything! Service could be better...we arrived to run the Portsmouth half marathon on Saturday, we were told the latest we could stay was 12:00 the...

We stayed at the Best Western hotel in Portsmouth as it was the perfect location for our marathon on the Sunday. We arrived Sat morning and parked in the limited availability car park with no problems. We didn't have a sea view room as these rooms were already taken due to Xmas parties in the hotel. We checked in and...

Stayed overnight recently on a business trip and found the hotel very clean and well run. Excellent breakfast but a very crowded car park so had to find on street parking. Well worth a visit and will certainly be on our list next time
