I was in Room 17 on the first floor of the new "Cottage" annexe. First the good points: The staff were friendly and helpful. I was particularly appreciative of the free parking permit which meant I could park near to the Cathedral where I was singing for the whole weekend. The sheets and towels were white and clean and fresh.... More

Stayed in a single room. It was small but nice clean and tidy - perfect for a brief overnight stay. No resources for breakfast was a limitation in the morning. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Very satisfactory

The location of the hotel is perfect for the Gunwharf Quays shopping mall and the Historic Dockyards both only a few minutes walk. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was clean and sufficient in size providing you are only sleeping there and spending the rest of your time out. Unfortunately the walls seem rather thin as you can... More

A very good hotel chosen on-line in a quiet area near to the harbour making it ideal for an overnight stop before going on to Jersey the next day. Attached though not part of the hotel was an excellent restaurant. We would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone planning a short break in Portsmouth.

We stayed at the Duke of Buckingham for one night whilst we attended an ashes committal at the naval dockyard. Perfectly placed for visiting Portsmouth with free parking being the icing on the cake. We were able to park the car and walk everywhere we wanted to go easily. Our room was cute and cosy and had everything we needed.... More

We stayed at the Duke of Buckingham recently for a night. The room was small but very clean and tidy. Upon our arrival there was a slight hiccup as the room had no electric power on all the sockets. We quickly informed staff of the situation and to their credit they fixed the problem promptly. The only slight downside was... More

I stayed in a single room - yes, it was small but that meant it was cheaper than single occupancy of a double/twin elsewhere. Up on the third floor, it was newly decorated in a lovely modern style & scrupulously clean. Quiet room despite the hotel being on the High St and attached to the pub. The staff were extremely...

we arrived around 12.00 and managed to park right outside the hotel and the lovely lady in reception gave us a parking permit which we were able to use right up to the following afternoon when we left Portsmouth, saving about £24 in parking fees and the room was only £45!! Described as a small double (room 9), it was... More
