We stayed just for one night. Gill gave us tips what to do in the city and offered tea and coffee when we arrived. Our room was clean and nicely furbished. The breakfast was excellent with the homemade yogurt. Gill was very friendly.

Stayed at The Pier for 4 days in Oct 2014 and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Everything was great and Jill was fantastic. The only criticisms perhaps are the bathroom is really small and the toilet may get wet after you have had a shower. The room can also do with a box of tissues by the bed or somewhere in... More

Having only stayed at a major hotel chain before when in Portsmouth I was at a loss as to where to stay. Well I didn't need to have worried. Gill is a lovely lady who makes you welcome as soon as you turn up by the simple thing of asking whether you want fresh milk in your room for a... More

My wife and I stayed here for the Victorious Festival following the excellent reviews posted previously. Gill greeted us very warmly and we were quickly offered tea or coffee. Our room was very clean and the facilities were good. The shower and toilet room was small but perfectly adequate for our stay. We got the hang of using the shower... More

We stayed here for three nights and overall we were very impressed. We were greeted with a very warm and friendly welcome and were taken care of very nicely. My husband and I stayed here with my grandson. Since there were only rooms for two people there was going to be an issue, due to being three of us. However,... More

Gill is a wonderful hostess, very welcoming and helpful. The breakfasts were excellent, with plenty of choice. We stayed in room five on the top floor, it was a lovely room but as one or two others commented there are 3 flights of stairs and this room is at the front so we were aware of the road noise, particularly...

We were pleased to have found such comfortable accommodation at short notice and to be only 10 minutes walk from Clarence Pier, the start of many interesting sights to visits. The room was spotlessly clean, and large enough for an overnight stay, and although the shower was 'snug' it was perfectly adequate. The bed was very comfortable and Gill was... More
