Firstly thank you for taking the time to write a review although of course we are sorry that you were disappointed with your stay. The broken tiles on entering the en-suite have been reported by the housekeeper and I'm pleased to report have now been repaired today. On a point of fact, the room booked is advertised as having HDTV,... More

Stayed at the White Lodge for one night after seeing show at the nearby Kings Theatre. On arrival, I was greeted by presumably the owner,and shown into in the entrance hall, my first impression of which was surprise that it was a little bit shabby, quite in contrast to the photographs of the rooms found online. The room however was... More

Thank you for your review. Having spoken to staff and from my own perspective we can not understand why you think the entrance hall and dining room shabby? Very little chipped paintwork, all areas dusted and vacumed, no marks on walls or doors, mirrors polished, dining room solid oak floor scrupulously clean, etc!! Would have been helpful if you could... More

We only stayed for one night as we were on our way to the ferry port to go to France. We had a small room but it was plenty big enough with twin beds, en-suite bathroom, wardrobe, drawers and a chair. There was tea making facilities which was very good. We didn't find it cramped it was perfectly adequate. We... More

Thank you for your kind review and I'm pleased that you found The White Lodge " a comfortable friendly place to stay.". The small twin room you stayed in is our best value room, however it still enjoys HDTV, Free Wifi and ensuite facilities. Hopefully when you next visit you will have the opportunity to experience Rosita's Italian restaurant too.... More

We arrived to the Whitelodge with no welcome from the owner. He was very rarely around to ask questions about the city or to get any information needed. His staff were also not very helpful either speaking very little English or being too young to undertake the overseeing of the hotel while the ownerartin was nowhere to be seen. On... More

Again - I'd recommend the White Lodge B&B for Southsea, Portsmouth area (ships / visits). Great rooms with enough off-street parking (or even on-street (& very nearby) if you can't squeeze in cos of someone else's parking). Again we were visiting our daughter nearby but also took in the New Forest area this time which was great. Again, met by... More

Our room was noisy just in front of the street. Despite a warm welcome, we had for breakfast not the quality that we could expect to get for a 130£ B&B at 20 mins walk from the seafront. In overall we were disappointed.

For a city centre location our situation is relatively quiet although, unfortunately, sometimes it can peak. Disappointed that our breakfast not meet your expectations as this... More

The location was very handy to the University and shops,buses pass outside or you can even walk.Our room was at the top and very well decorated and clean.The shower being new was stiff for my wife to adjust until i set it.The staff were very friendly and helpful and the breakfast was excellent.

Thank you for your kind comments which help us to improve our services. Yes, being located in central Southsea means just about all of the cities attractions are within 15-20 min walking distance. Hope we will see you again in the future. More
