We stayed one night for an event; the rooms were clean & light and the shower was hot & strong. Pleasant, helpful reception staff. Great location, only 10 mins walk from Portsmouth & Southsea station and the university, and 15 minutes or so to the Spinnaker tower and Gunwharf Quays. The surrounding streets were very attractive, lots of pretty cottages... More

I stayed in the annexe room at the Duke of Buckingham which is actually a converted garage on the side street. The benefit of this was that the room was very quiet and had an ensuite however the drawback was that the room did get quite cool in the morning although a heater is provided if this is a problem....

Only stayed one night while visiting Portsmouth for a show. Clean and up together room, the bed and pillows were uncomfortable and the ceiling and walls were like paper! Very friendly staff though... Be careful not to fall foul of the shared bathroom too when booking! Wouldn't return back in all honesty!

We were on the 2nd floor and the was some noise from the upstairs rooms with creaking floors, a little annoying but not unexpected! Staff very friendly. Wifi only down stairs and in the pub next door, which is not that bad of a thing. Room was a good size especially as we were there for four nights. The pub... More

I needed a relatively cheap overnight accommodation for a night out with friends in Gunwharf. The Duke of Buckingham delivered. I wouldn't stay here for a romantic weekend, but the room was clean (if a little dated) and the staff were friendly. I would have no hesitation in staying again

We usually stay in large hotels but picked this place as the location looked good and so did the reviews. When we arrived parking was easy and we were given a permit, so free parking for 4 days, fantastic. Friendly greeting and were allocated a room in the cottage behind the pub. Lovely room with a separate little room for... More

I found this place after looking at the reviews on TripAdvisor and was not let down at all. The Duke of Buckingham is an excellent little hotel especially for visitors to Gunwharf in the City. It's a few minutes, very easy walk to Gunwharf and yet far enough away to escape the noise and dramas that you may see around... More
