I stayed in this hotel for two nights with a friend and we chose it primarily because of the price but when we arrived and saw how close it was to Gunwharf Quays, the railway station and the Historic Dockyard we were delighted. We were warmly welcomed by a member of staff who offered us a parking permit and explained... More

Room was small but nicely furnished, the beds were comfortable and the shower was powerful. Everything was perfectly clean. The only downside was the walls were quite thin. For the price we paid it was exactly what we were expecting and it provided a good base for two days in Portsmouth

Can't beat the location! Close to lots of pubs, restaurants, historical landmarks, Spinnaker Tower, historic dockyards and Gunwharf Quays. The front desk attendants were incredibly helpful, and even though the rooms were small, they were clean, comfortable and all I needed. Also, the Wifi was super speedy. FYI--there's no air conditioning, so be aware in the summer months. Luckily the... More

We stayed here June 19-21 to attend Portsmouth Pride as both stallholders and Pride supporters and chose Duke Of Buckingham's due to it's ideal location in Portsmouth Old Town within easy walking distance of Gunwharf Quays,etc in the city and Southsea Common for Pride.The free parking on High Street was a plus point. We were allocated a family room on... More

My grand daughter and I stayed here overnight as we were part of a choir singing the weekend services at Portsmouth Cathedral. It was very handy for the Cathedral and the staff were most helpful, storing our bags for us until we could check in at 3pm. They gave us a parking permit a they do not have a car... More

Great little place to stay, modern, clean, friendly helpful staff. We were in the cottage behind the pub, and it was peaceful and secluded. Lovely place, would definitely stay again. On street parking for which you get permit from hotel, was easy enough and you can stay parked for the day prior to leaving the hotel, which was real bonus.... More

£55 for a Friday night is a bargain. The rooms are very warm/stuffy and the showers are not great at all. It's also a very early check-out at 10am. However it's a decent bed, a good location and free parking is always handy in a busy location. Oh and the free wifi is a bonus.

We had 3 nights in Portsmouth staying in the Old town and had a very relaxing and chilling experience. The hotel is not a classic type, being attached to a traditional pub that serves good food. The rooms were small but very clean and fully equipped.

We stayed here for a night before taking an early morning ferry home. Although no private parking we were given a permit to use the residents on street parking all around the hotel. The room was clean, nicely presented at a reasonable price. It was also easy walking distance to Abarbistro where we had an excellent dinner.
