We wanted a place for our family of four plus Grandma to stay. Nothing was too much trouble and, we were all accommodated, at fair value. (Grandma stayed at another couple's B and B over the road, but we all ate together) the breakfast was sumptous, requiring tin foil which was happily provided to cart off the extra sausages for...

Lombard House is an excellent B&B in a small charming 17th century house in Old Portsmouth. Its a good location within 10/15 mins walk of Portsmouth Harbour Railway Station and the Historic Dockyard. Our room was clean and comfortable and the owners were friendly and helpful and provided a very good breakfast in unique surroundings

Fantastic find. Lovely Georgian property really close to all the attractions of Old Portsmouth. Friendly and interesting hosts, lovely breakfast. We stayed for two nights with two friends and had a very enjoyable stay. Quirky property with lots of charm, we would thoroughly recommend this B&B.

This pretty Georgian House is well located for the historic Portsmouth Dockyard and the town centre. Your hosts are charming and very friendly - an enjoyable experience. My wife and I stayed for one night in mid December 2013.

We stayed in this wonderful b & b and enjoyed every moment. As we are members of The Nelson Society we were delighted to meet the owners who were incredibly welcoming and had time to speak with us about Nelson and the Napoleonic wars, and Alex is so knowledgeable that it was a joy and a privilege to hear what...

We stayed in the 2 rooms of this b&b, and found the rooms comfortable and pretty. The street facing room was a bit noisy at night with revellers returning from pubs, but the back room was quieter. It was a prime location for walking to the Historic Dockyard and Gunwharf Quays. Parking was tricky, and even though they provide you... More

Lombard House was built in 1600 and the owners have lovingly restored its original features. The owners are friendly without being intrusive and hugely knowledgeable about Portsmouth, its history, and Nelson in particular. Every room is like a fascinating museum, and the bedrooms themselves are very well decorated with comfortable beds, tea, coffee, tv etc and en suite. The breakfast... More

Lombard House is a B&B dating from the 17th century with enormous character. It has just two rooms; ours had a double and a single bed and was beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. The owners were incredibly welcoming and we felt like house guests more than customers -- though not in the sense of feeling intrusive that one sometimes gets... More

This place was utterly charming--a lot like staying in a museum or in a spare room of someone's lovely home. The owners are not only history buffs, but Alex plays Lord Nelson in historic reenactments, and knows absolutely everything there is to know about Nelson and British history. Talking with him and his charming wife were worth the price of... More

My husband and I stayed at Lombard House B&B for two nights. Car parking was easy-peasy thanks to landlord Alex issuing parking permits. Everything spotessly clean, comfortable and cosy. Wonderful friendly welcome, nothing too much trouble. If you like history this is the place for you with lots of artefacts of byegone days. Breakfast a mini banquet. Try it.
