Our LARGE group (16) thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Portswood. It has located at the Waterfront, which makes for easy navigation throughout the city. All of the staff was beyond accommodating and friendly. We will definitely be back! Good Food. Great Service.

Great location. My room (432) was very quiet and looked as if it had been recently remodeled. Nice bathroom. Loved the firm but comfortable bed. Staff friendly and helpful. Restaurant OK but better options available at the nearby V&A Waterfront

I've stayed at this hotel on two different occasions. It's not on the water, but it's a short walk and is very reasonably priced for what you get. The staff is nice and the included breakfast is good. Unless you are looking for 5 star, you can't go wrong with this hotel.

Can I park my rental car safely at Portswood
Hi Julie, We did not park our rental there as we got it when we left. The car park appears to be underground and the road access was only for the hotel, so it looked pretty secure. The entrance to the car park was also in front of the main doors, which always has at least one doorman in front of them. Kind regards Denise

Belthazar and Willoughby - depending if you prefer meat or fish. But all the places in the Waterfront are excellent- don't eat in the hotel - walk a bit!
