Very Disappointed

Customer review rating 1.5/5

C S. Couples - 22/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Extremely disappointed very claustrophobic rooms poor plumbing no power in the shower just a dribble. Public toilets reception extremely poor broken lock one toilet and broken seat in the other and dirty. Breakfasts were good although staff were a little short fused when they were asked a question.

Joan P. Couples - 20/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

I’ve stayed at many Ibis hotels, but this one is awful. The most depressing decor - mostly battleship grey and black. The room was poky, with little storage space and the smallest bathroom (correction: shower room) that I’ve ever seen. The bar/restaurant area were similarly depressing, so no wonder so few patrons bothered eating there. The breakfast was good but there were so few staff, they were run off their feet trying to clear tables and refill the food stations. A dreadful hotel.

Lovely friendly Team

Sm Solo - 19/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Checked in with Adam, who was extremely helpful and professional. Your bartender, Andres, was fabulously hospitable and remembered my drink every day after the first. He went out of his way to bring me a small snack so I could have something before the restaurant opened. He is your finest representative of your hotel!! On a slightly negative note, please get the down button on the first floor landing fixed. Pushing “up” isn’t a good work-around. We’ll be back!! Thanks for everything-

Good stay

Handy place to stay. Car park might be better ‘policed’; quite a few cars badly parked so that some spaces were impossible to be used.

Good welcome and help. Breakfast bar was a little disorganised,with guests having to wait or return for various aspects of what was on offer. Coffee station waste products slow to be cleared. Possibly staffing level problem?

Dear Sheila, Thank you for your review. I am happy to know that yours was, on the whole, a pleasant experience. I will pass your comments to the relevant departments. We hope that you will stay again and give us the opportunity to exceed established expectations. Kind regards, Fernanda

Reasonable value hotel in a top tourist destination

Customer review rating 3.0/5

Philip T. Couples - 19/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

The recent refurb in the public areas was good, but the bedrooms let it down, given the cramped dimensions, for example using a computer on the desk restricted opening the toilet door. The carpet was still stained for a refurbed room. Buffet breakfast needed replenishing more often than happened, with guests standing around waiting. Bacon and sausages were overcooked, scrambled eggs very dry and, worst of all, served on cold plates. However, all of this is easily remedied. On the other hand Cold buffet, croissants, petit pain and cereals was good. All the staff were excellent in every way, particularly Agatha, helpful, cheerful and keen to solve any problem. Despite everything this was nevertheless a good value and pleasant stay in a wonderful city.

Dear Philip, Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience at the ibis Portsmouth Centre. I am happy to know that yours was, on the whole, a pleasant experience. Thank you for your kind words about our staff members, I will make sure that I will pass it to them. We hope that you will stay again and give us the opportunity to exceed established expectations. Kind regards, Fernanda

Everything was fine, except the water in the shower was too hot, and impossible to alter, but I did report it and was told it would be repaired right away.

The hotel is clean and tidy and the staff are very good. Nice bar, but it’s a shame it closes at 10pm. Excellent wide and comfortable double beds.

Parking was easy, although always a shame when guests have to pay! Hotel was conveniently located for walking to Gunwharf Quays, the Spinnaker Tower and the Historic Dockyard. Tiny bathroom, and breakfast needed to be better organised as everything kept running out.

Dear Karen, Thank you very much for taking the time to leave a review. I am glad to read that your was a pleasant experience. We appreciate your feedback and hope you will stay again. We look forward to welcoming you back. Kind regards, Fernanda

Overnight stay for work

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

Bjorn Helge A Business - 14/09/2021 TripAdvisor review

Stayed one night for work commitment, as usual check-in was no issue. The receptionist was as always very friendly and very service minded. The rooms are small, but was found clean. Rooms are well equipped with a small desk and smart TV. As commented on many times before the mattress needs an upgrade as sleep was not as good as it could be but pillows have been replaced. Breakfast was again a bit disappointing, not ready for opening time and several items were cold. Not sure what happened to the scrambled egg but they were awful and inedible. This is a shame as the produce is actually not bad. The breakfast team seems very untrained and it is now time to get back up to scratch as the hotel is very busy. I have mentioned this previously also.
