Me and my husband made a last minute booking for a couple of nights and were pleased with our stay. The room was quiet and clean, and the owner very friendly. We were given keys so we could come and go as we pleased. The hotel is within walking distance of portsmouth with the historic dockyard and gunwarf quey, as... More

Don't go expecting too much from this place. When we arrived there was no-one there to book us in, we ended having to sit in the dining room for 45 minutes waiting for someone to show up. When we were finally shown to our room, it was freezing cold and rather grotty. Not a very nice experience at all. After... More

Clean, comfortable, and friendly. Yes, you get what you pay for but the double rooms are very pleasant. Garry is a cheerful host. One niggle would be - cooked breakfasts are not served before 8am, and if you're the only guest he won't bother - but the full englishes (and veggie) are worth the wait if you're not in a... More

The Web site for this establishment has wonderful reviews on it. People say how friendly it is and the food is good. The promise is made of a warm and friendly welcome. And it has three star rating from Enjoy England.com. so what could go wrong ? Seeing all of the above I booked here for three nights, for a... More

Although we welcome feedback encouraging us to improve our business, I feel as if this review is victimising my business, my staff and setting out a negative outlook on the service we provide. These accusations are unfounded, exaggerated and untrue. This customer was rude and aggressive to staff and did not accept our attempts to make his stay with us... More

I do understand that this is B&B and not a 5 star hotel and the price is fairly low, but....the bed is so old and uncomfortable, the room has enough space for a bed and that's all, bathroom.....I never seen such a small bathroom, could not dry myself with the door closed, had to open it for more space and...

WOW To compare us with your Hotel in London seems a bit harsh. I do admit our room sizes are not huge, but our b&b is a Victorian house built in 1890. We pride ourselves on the cleanliness and maintenance of the building and can only make the rooms larger if we did away with the en-suites in all our... More

We recently stayed here for 2 nights. The location is ideal and within easy walking distance from train station, coast and town centre. Proprietors were very friendly, especially little Sophie who made us feel quite welcome and showed us to our room. The room was clean and tidy, but a bit on the small size. We felt somewhat cramped in... More

Garry (on check in) 'Have you stayed with us before' Guest 'No but our daughter is local so we're looking for somewhere we can use regularly' Garry 'Well this isn't it' We thought perhaps an odd joke from the owner but turns out he was being worryingly honest. Check in 4-6pm, check out 10am, breakfast at 8-8.30am (on a Sunday).... More
