Positive Reviews

You'll never be bored

With more than 95 retail outlets and 30 bars & restaurants right on your doorstep, you don't have to go far to find something to do Oh and there's also a health & fitness centre, 14 screen cinema, 26 lane ten-pin bowling complex, nightclub and even a casino, just for good measure.

Superb location

As well as being right in the middle of Portsmouth's most prestigious commercial centre, the hotel is also perfectly located for exploring the rest of this engaging destination The city centre, harbour and Spinnaker Tower are all within strolling distance while Portsmouth Harbour train station is just five minutes away.

Complementary breakfast

It's hot, it's adequate and it's free – is there a better way to start the day?.

Negative Reviews

A little noisy at times

Things can get a little lively around Gunwharf Quays in the evenings, especially on Fridays and Saturday It is generally the case that guests staying in the rooms at the front of the hotel (those with the best views) are the most likely to be disturbed by noise If you're a light sleeper then you may wish to forego the view and opt for a room at the rear of the building instead.

Not sleek and stylish everywhere

While the Holiday Inn Express Portsmouth - Gunwharf Quays is, from the outset, a very sleek and stylish looking hotel, it is fair to say some parts of it (stained corridor carpets, peeling guest bathrooms) look far less impressive Room for improvement.

Nothing more really

Aside from the business with the noise (in some rooms only) and some slightly tired-looking aspects here and there, there isn't really that much else of a negative nature to flag up at the Holiday Inn Express Portsmouth - Gunwharf Quays.
