Lovely place to stay! Very close to restaurants and the beach. The hotel has thought about a lot of little extras that make a stay that much more confortable!
Heated pool is actually very warm. Breakfast was amazing. The options and the quality. Enjoyed my balcony view. Some upgraded to the cottages which were very amazing.
Great location, relaxed friendly environment, great service
The service was excellent. The staff were incredibly helpful and always had a smile on their faces. I would certainly recommend The Portswood Hotel and would definitely stay there again.
Great hotel but now just a tiny bit tired. Will soon need a program of renovation. Staff were great. Gym is fab. Nice location.
Quick service. Very easy check in, check out. Excellent staff members. The rooftop restaurant/bar was noisy on our first night, we requested to change to another room on the lower floor. They did it happily next day. Thank you. Good breakfast. Good bar and restaurant.
