Stayed here for two nights.....booked two separate rooms for a party of 4. The first morning, a male housekeeper walked into my daughter's room early in the morning without knocking first, just used his key. When she asked him what he wanted he threw a set of keys to her room onto her bed, said nothing and walked out. She... More

Rooms were clean, tidy and fit for purpose. Quiet at night and the shower was warm; happy days! Not the largest space in the world so not one you if cat swinging is one of your hobbies. Whilst there isn't breakfast facilities, this was made clear in advance so all good. Again might be a sticking point for others. Just... More

We stayed in a family room in a cottage in the lane behind the main building! It was a very well appointed room, nice decor, fresh,modern & clean! A permit was provided for parking on the road out front by friendly & helpful receptionist! Would return!

We stayed from Monday for two nights whilst sightseeing. The room we had was in the house and it was clean fresh and decorated tastefully. The bedding had clean, crisp white sheets which smelt gorgeous. The pub itself was friendly and although we did not eat there the menu looked good. All in all we very very happy and would... More

The double room was small but it was very clean & comfortable. We had to share a bathroom but that was not a problem as It was also very clean and serviceable. I never had a problem gaining entry to the bathroom and had a shower in the morning before leaving. We ate in the pub and had a very... More

My family and I stayed here during a brief visit to Portsmouth while the room was nice, the area enjoyable, we all had the worst nights sleep ever due to the amazing amount of street noisy. Unfortunately due to the heat, we needed to leave the windows open! Strongly suggest adding in room AC for the front rooms! Otherwise stay... More

Very nice hotel, very friendly staff, excellent location and great price, well worth staying at. The family room was very comfortable and spacious, only minor problem was the noise from the upstairs bedroom in the morning, other than that was a very enjoyable stay.
