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

Excellent stay & worth the cost. Breakfast fills you up for the day. Friendly people who own it. Very clean with extra touches in the bedroom. Could view across to the eight link ferries. Definitely stay there again if visiting old Portsmouth.

This is a really charming B&B to stay in. The owners are really friendly and I have to say very helpful. The room was spotlessly clean and the bed was so comfortable. The bed linens were fresh and clean and I had a really good nights sleep. Tea and coffee facilities in the room are a nice touch and you... More

Amazing location & at last a B & B that is just that! From being greeted at the door to being waved off 2 days later I had a great stay! Spotlessly clean ( I mean SPOTLESS!) fantastic breakfasts using great quality ingredients. Lovely room, linens and super shower. Incredible VFM. Loved it and can't recommend Fortitude Cottage highly enough.

'Hidden away in the historic Spice Island area of Old Portsmouth, this B &B stood up to all the reviews we had read before booking. Hosts, Maggie and Mike, made sure our stay was perfect. We took up their recommendations of where to eat and were not disappointed. The location is well placed for visiting the Gunwharf quay shopping area... More
