Map & Directions

Portsmouth is roughly the same travel time and cost via train as by car from London, with South West Trains departing from London Waterloo to Portsmouth & Southsea Railway Station hourly. The train takes an hour and 28 minutes, and costs £19-£29. From the train station, it's a 7-minute walk to the hotel via Blackfriars Road to Winston Churchill Avenue. Driving from London via the A3212 to the A3(M) takes an hour and 39 minutes (depending on traffic).

The Ibis Portsmouth Centre is a good-value, contemporary hotel in the centre of Portsmouth's bustling harbour town, near Portsmouth University and major transport links (Portsmouth & Southsea Railway Station is a 7-minute walk from the hotel, and Portsmouth Ferry Terminal is a 19-minute walk away), as well as many of the city's main attractions.

Situated on Portsea Island, Portsmouth is the UK's only island city, and it is the most densely populated urban location outside of London -- but it also offers sea views, a fantastic naval history (the Portsmouth Historical Dockyard is home to famous ships the HMS Victory, the Mary Rose and the HMS Warrior, all within a 24-minute walk from the hotel), and shopping, bars, restaurants and nightlife in the popular Gunwharf Quays -- a 19-minute walk from the hotel. Other attractions include the landmark Emirates Spinnaker Tower observation deck (a 21-minute walk); the Guildhall -- Portsmouth's historic arts and civic centre (a 3-minute walk); and the Tudor-style Southsea Castle, where Henry VIII's flagship Mary Rose sank.

The modern, minimalist-style rooms have free Wi-Fi, on-demand films, and tea- and coffee-making facilities. Pets are welcome (charges may apply), and children can stay for free, provided they occupy the beds included in the room price. The hotel also has rooms adapted for wheelchair users.

There's a stylish restaurant serving international cuisine, a hip lounge/café bar serving drinks with a 24-hour snack menu, and an all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet. Other amenities include a business centre, two meeting rooms and on-site parking (£7 per day), available on a first-come, first-served basis.
