We had stayed here a couple of times in the past, both times in the "Garage & House" at the rear of the pub and on the ground floor. Both times the rooms were lovely and quiet which suited us perfectly, as we live in a very rural, (quiet), area of Norfolk. We booked this trip back in January 2014,... More

Its an above the average hotel on the top of a pub. You are close to the centre and the price is not to high. Of course you have shared bathroom, but in total it is totally okay as a stay in Portsmouth.

Booked in on-line at the last minute as we needed somewhere to stay and we were not disappointed. The location was within easy walking distance of all of the main areas to visit. The price was a lot less than the nearest competitor and more than made up for the short walk to get a breakfast at a lovely place... More

We stayed here in June, after finding that even the "budget" hotel chains were charging almost £100 per night. I would say it's fairly typical for Pub accommodation - but cleaner than most. On check-in we discovered that the room we'd been allocated was on the third floor, up several sets of very narrow stairs. However, when I explained that... More

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights last week. The major positive of this hotel is the location, it was easy to walk into the city centre, to the beach, to Gunwharf Quays and the Historic Dockyards. The reception staff were friendly and offer suggestions about where to go for breakfast. We were in room 11 which was up... More

If it is excellent value you want, then a stay at The Duke of Buckingham is a real winner! My wife and I spent a weekend last year visiting the Historic Dockyards and Gunwharf Quays and we chose to spend an overnighter at a local hotel/pub.

I stayed here for 1 night with my partner and 14 year old son in room 8. The room was quite spacious with a double bed and a camp bed. The colour scheme reminded me a little of a Premier Inn (shades of purple). We chose to stay here as we needed to be near Gun Wharf and it's about... More
