Brilliant little find. Central location, lovely room & fab pub downstairs. Excellent value for money. Only downside (if any) was that our first floor room was directly above the pub so a bit noisy til after 10.30 (due to live band - who were great!) but didn't bother us at all. Highly recommended!

I stayed here this weekend whist visiting my son at university. We arrived at 10am and popped into reception to collect parking permit from a very friendly receptionist. There is plenty of street parking. We then went and met my son at Mannas, as recommended by the Hotel, for breakfast just 50yards along the road.... superb!! After a days shopping... More

A small double room but perfectly comfortable and clean. A well situated hotel for all the main sights. Very friendly staff. Good value for money. Only tiny criticism is insufficient soundproofing between the rooms

We stayed here on a Friday night. We arrived early and although our room wasn't ready we were given a parking permit so we could leave the car and start sightseeing. When we returned to check in we were taken through an alley to the side of the pub to a cottage - I hadn't booked this and saw it... More

We stayed here as a family group with 4 adults and 1 child in February 2015. The location is great, just a short walk from the Historic Dockyard, Gun Wharf Quays Shopping area and the seafront. There are lots of places to eat and drink nearby. The hotel does not offer breakfast but they do have discount deals for guests... More

No issues at all, fairly small room but good value and friendly reception. The location is good for the dockyards, walking to the seafront easy. Didn't go to the pub downstairs but looked OK. Nothing else to mention.

Located in 'Old Portsmouth', a short stroll from the sea-front this guest house appears to be a reasonable option...I arrived early in bad weather and was able to check-in straight away...Staff were very friendly and accommodating and made me feel really welcome. Although I had booked a single I was given a compact double with en-suite toilet and separate shower-room.... More

Couples, if your thinking of going away for a wild weekend and one of you are noisy don't book a room here as many of the rooms have adjoining plasterboard walls allowing you to hear right into the room next door. That said, the rooms are small and pleasant, very clean and modern with flatscreen TVs with inbuilt free view... More
