Positive Reviews

Popular village location near Portsmouth

Guests were usually keen on this hotel's location in the quaint village of Rowlands Castle because it put them within easy driving distance of Havant and Portsmouth city centre for shopping, attractions and ferry terminals. It also proved popular with outdoors enthusiasts because it was situated at the gateway to the South Downs National Park. Drivers liked the free parking and the proximity of a petrol station. Moreover, there was a pub-restaurant next door and further eateries a short drive away.

Affordable rooms were clean and tidy

Positive views about customer service

Negative Reviews

Claims of shortcomings in certain rooms

Bathrooms that could have been more vigorously cleaned, weak water pressure and poor TV reception were among the drawbacks encountered by critics in several rooms. There were also claims that certain rooms were dimly lit or lacking in natural light.

Unpopular time limits on free Wi-Fi

There was criticism of the time limits that applied to the free Wi-Fi network. Many guests were disappointed that after 30 minutes they had to pay a small fee for continued access.

Obstacles to sleep encountered

Guests in some rooms said they found it difficult to adjust the room temperature to their liking. Meanwhile, curtains in some rooms reportedly failed to fully exclude external light. Several light sleepers commented that nuisance noise from adjoining rooms and corridors was occasionally audible.
