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

Stayed here for 2 nights and it was a pleasant experience. When we arrived the lady on reception was lovely and helpful. The whole place smelt fresh. I stayed in room 12 and it was perfect bar 2 of 3 really picky little things. I won't let them stop me giving this hotel 5 stars. Obviously for £50 a night... More

Room was very clean and great value money ... was cosy but then it was sold as a 'small double' so it met expectations. Excellent location for shops, restaurants, town centre and an easy going 15 minute walk to/from the train station. Parking permit was provided and I had no trouble finding a space. Only downside for me was no... More

The hotel is a short walk from town, comfy rooms and accommodating staff who are available by phone if reception is closed. Whilst there is no official parking, permits for street parking is available. Additionally, discounts at various breakfast venues are also available so not having this included is fine. Definitely would stay again.

We were on the third floor looking out onto the street. Nice hotel next door to the pub and nice and quiet. The hotel was clean, warm and very cosy. There is street parking which the pub supplies a permit. We stayed at weekend and there were a few spaces on the street around the back of the pub. There... More

I had a weekend in portsmouth and the Duke Of Buckingham was perfect. Great location - walking distance to Gunwharf and the Historic Dockyards.
