Negative Reviews

Lift Only Services First Floor

The hotel is set in an old building Unfortunately the lift has only been retro-fitted to access the first floor If you have mobility issues, request a room on the first floor.

Above the Pub

Please note that the Portland is above a pub, therefore you’ll likely get some pub noise in the evenings Another side effect can sometimes be the stale beer from the night before Ask for a room at the back to limit noise and create distance from the pub.

Dodgy Shower Pressure

Many of the guests enjoyed their stay at the hotel and found the room comfortable, however a few guests mentioned the shower can lack pressure and shifts from ice cold to scolding hot in an instant.

No Creature Comforts

The Portland is a budget hotel offering a comfortable night and clean room at the right price However, some guests felt the odd creature comfort could be offered to improve the room, such as facecloths, tissues, etc.
