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

My husband and I spent two nights here last weekend. We were attending a christening on HMS Warrior on the Sunday so I thought we would make a weekend out of it. The location of Fortitude Cottage is perfect for shopping at Gunwharf Quays (it's about a ten minute walk) or even for hopping across to the Isle of Wight... More

This was our 2nd visit to Fortitude Cottage but it certainly won't be our last. Again, everything was perfect, our room was extremely comfortable, immaculately clean and everything we needed was provided, and more! The harbour view we had was amazing. Our hosts Mike and Maggie were so friendly and accommodating. We really cannot find fault and look forward to... More

We stayed at Fortitude Cottage in March 2015, and could not have chosen anywhere better. We stayed in the Penthouse suite which was superbly furnished and had great views over the harbour. Everywhere in the cottage was immaculate and Maggie and Mike were fantastic hosts, and made us feel more than welcome and could could do enough for us. The... More
