I know you get what you pay for but the triple family room offers no privacy whatsoever. The separate toilet may as well not have had walls and the shower, whilst good, is opposite a mirror so anyone in the room can see you showering.
There is so little space in the room the 3 of us couldn't even walk passed each other. We were only staying for 2 nights so we didn't have a lot of luggage with us, but there was minimal space to store our hold all. The bunk bed had a wide spaced metal ladder, so it was extremely worrying every time little one climbed up or down as the metal was quite slippery with or without shoes. The duvet on the bunk bed had a nasty stain on it and had to be changed. We tried to put our hold all under the bed, but there was a lot of dust under there and I suspect it hadn't been cleaned properly for a while.
The hotel has minimal parking - about 5 spaces right outside and a few more around the corner. The 5 spaces opposite the hotel parking are allocated for the use of Subway which is just around the corner. The hotel has a parking agreement with a B&Q across the road on a shopping park but with a busy road to negotiate, a child and luggage this is not ideal and wouldn't do for older clientele either.
The hotel is well situated with Fratton Station a 5 minute walk away and is ideal for fans traveling to football. If you like fast food there are branches of Subway, KFC and McDonalds across the road, with a giant Tesco and a Lidl if you really want to live the dream.
The staff were friendly and helpful. We did not eat at the hotel so can't comment on these facilities, but there appeared to be a good range of snacks and drinks available from a 24 hour self service shop. As you would expect there are no tea or coffee facilities in the room but you can purchase tea and coffee 24 hours a day for £1.50 per cup.
As a summary, the triple room would be ideal for a single person or a couple at a push, but it is not a family room. The idea of the room is a good one but it has clearly been put together on the cheap. I appreciate that the hotel is clearly promoted as "budget" but we've learnt a valuable lesson - spend an extra £30 for the joy of space and a toilet and shower that offer a little bit of privacy.
