Wonderful little B&B. Mike and Maggie were wonderful host. This B & B is a block from the ocean and walking distance to Historical ships. Our room was very nice. We slept well even though our room was ground floor street level. Breakfast was in a charming room up stairs with everything you could ask for in an English Breakfast.... More

Fortitude Cottage is a super place to stay in Old Portsmouth - just off the beaten track, but close enough to walk to all the main sights! The rooms are very well-appointed with comfortable beds and more than ample storage. Breakfast leaves nothing to be desired, with a broad choice ranging from a light continental breakfast to a full English... More

My wife and I have been here three times. I would class it as home from home, but only better. Everything is A1, Room, Shower and Breakfast, room 5. Would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone to stay. Lovely Hosts

Together with friends, just spent another couple of nights at Fortitude Cottage. As with our previous stay, we were made to feel very welcome, rooms were of the highest standard. Breakfast delicious and set's you up for the day. Location is perfect, plenty of things to do and good choice of local eateries.

We stayed here for one night in early May. The B&B is in the heart of old Portsmouth within easy walking distance of all the attractions and Gunwharf Quays shopping. We were in the fabulous penthouse room on the top floor with stunning views across Portsmouth and the Solent. A great place to stay with lovely hosts and an excellent... More

Just returned from an overnight stay at this lovely establishment. We received a warm welcome from Maggie who showed us to our rooms. They were spotlessly clean with great views,spacious, with all the usual amenities. The breakfast was fabulous and set us up for the day and our reluctant journey home. We have stayed in many hotels and B and... More

It is mixed in among other B&Bs and various mysterious other buildings, but don't let this fool you - once you go in (and up the stairs) you will find an outstanding place to stay here. Super friendly staff, and I was lucky enough to have one of the bigger rooms in the place - huge bathroom, spacious king-size bed,... More

Had a lovely couple of nights at Fortitude Cottage, great location in Old Portsmouth, 10 minutes walk to Gunwharf Quays and then 5 minutes onto the dockyard, just follow the trail signs on the pavement. We received a warm welcome, our room was lovely, everything we needed and a lovely en-suite. Breakfast was excellent, lots of choice and very well... More
