St. Margaret's Lodge is well located in a quiet road, close to the sea and local facilities and not too far to the centre. A pleasant, convenient and comfortable place to stay. The bedroom was a bit old fashioned whereas the en-suite was fantastic.Breakfast was OK. Good venue for a short stay. Recommended.

It's a harmless place. The whole place is a little dated, but spotlessly clean. We stayed in Room 1, which was a lovely large room at the front of the building. Nice sofa made it extra comfy and great that you had somewhere else to sit other than the bed to watch tv or read. Close to the sea, but... More

I was a little dubious about the B&B, some bad reviews here but I was late booking and this was the only one I could find with rooms. Only seems to be parking for 3 cars but we got a space, on arrival met by the manager who was pleasant, gave us our key and offered help on local facilities... More

We arrived over an hour before we could officially have the room but the owner was kind enough to let us have it room early. The room was very pretty and comfortable. The towels were soft and fluffy and the bathroom had a double sink, a separate bath and shower and was spacious and spotless. Location excellent, near all the... More

The breakfast... More

I stayed here a couple of nights, and this place has a "home away from home" feel to it. The staff are very friendly, and very knowledgeable about Portsmouth. Staff helpful in general as I had a cold when I stayed, and they gave me some medicine which sorted me out. Comfortable rooms, and a very good cooked breakfast in... More

The St. Margaret's Lodge is more a small hotel than a B&B. It is located in a lovely area of Portsmouth with close access to public buses (the number 1 runs to the Portsmouth Dock Area) and within walking distance of restaurants & pubs. The hotel has various room sizes (we looked in quite a few after people had checked... More

We had a 3 night trip to Southsea to visit the historic dockyard and Isle of Wight. St. Margaret's Lodge was a perfect base. Close to the seafront and very well serviced by the No.1 bus every 10 minutes to the dockyard and other parts of Portsmouth. We had room 16 which was excellent. Top floor up 2 flights of... More
