My wife & I spent 3 nights at the Fortitude Cottage 7-9 September 2015. Maggie & Mike were fantastic hosts. The breakfasts were fantastic. Our room was large, well furnished, and was spotless. The same can be said for the bathroom. Because our room was not available for 3 nights, we had to move the last day/night in Portsmouth. They... More

My sister & I first stayed at the Fortitude in May and we were quick to return! The rooms are comfortable & stylish, the location is ideal for shopping at Gunwharf Quays & for a trip to Southsea and the breakfast is cooked to perfection. I am looking forward to my next stay already!

Spent two nights at the Cottage which was our base for visits to the Historic Naval Dockyard and the regenerated areas of Old Portsmouth. We had a very comfortable room with many extras included as standard and enjoyed a superb outlook over the working harbour, which was a very pleasing source of interest. Our charming and friendly hosts set us... More

This is a great place to stay - especially well placed for Gun Wharf Quays. We arrived early and Maggie was only too pleased to welcome us and give us a parking pass. Our room was spotlessly clean with some thoughtful extras. Breakfast was excellent. No hesitation in recommending!

We booked a three night stay here, having never visited Portsmouth before. What a pleasant surprise! The accommodation was out of this world. We had a very spacious room, fantastic bathroom, very large comfortable bed and excellent décor. We even had a surprise when opening the fridge! (A complimentary bottle of bubbly) The view from the window was so interesting... More

Stayed here for a night before setting off to France and were not disappointed! Having stayed in Portsmouth a few times this is by far the best spot we have found. Clean, comfortable and very welcoming, this place is in a perfect location being only a 5 minute walk to Gunwharf Quay, 10 minute drive to the Cross Channel Ferries... More
