Trivia and History
Plans for a hotel here were first put forward in 1979, to be built on the sports ground next to the new A27.
In 1985 there were further plans made by Shell and Ladbroke, who owned the Hilton National brand. The petrol station opened sooner and the hotel opened shortly afterwards. The design included space for a 40-bed extension at the back which was never utilised.
Hilton National became Hilton in 2000. In 2015 it became a Holiday Inn, promoted under the name 'Portsmouth Park Hotel'. A few months later a £5 million refurbishment project began, and it became a Holiday Inn Express. The hotel was given a new entrance with the old driveway removed. The tennis courts later closed.
