Hotels in Portsmouth have been awarded top-rated status in the awards.

The website’s Simply the Guest Awards has given the top status to the Number Four Boutique Hotel, in Southsea, The Hampshire Hog, in Clanfield, and the Ibis Portsmouth Centre for achieving a minimum review score of 80 per cent on the site during 2015.

The awards are special because they are the only UK hotel awards based solely on genuine guest reviews – calculated through the review ratings given by guests who have actually stayed at a property and gone on to publish a review on the website.

Andrea Tarpey, spokesperson said: ‘The Simply The Guest Awards have become a highlight of the travel and hotel calendar.

‘Because all reviews on the site come only from customers who have genuinely booked and stayed at the property, top-rated status is now a trusted benchmark among those looking for a hotel where they know they can be confident of a truly outstanding stay.’
