We have just returned from our second stay at The Pier. We had three nights there, as we were visiting the sights of Portsmouth and catching up with friends. Gill is always so welcoming and the rooms are comfortable and well equipped. Breakfasts are delicious and she cooks them with such ease, not keeping you waiting for long. She also... More

I contacted the lovely owner Gill who was so so helpful, knowledgable and patient with all the questions I asked. There was no heavy formal booking rules just honest trust. This was so refreshing....

Recently stayed in this delightful b&b with my mum and we had the twin room. We were greeted with a warm welcome and given a car permit so we could park across the road and not have to worry about paying. The room was quaint but nice and the beds were especially comfortable with Egyptian cotton sheets. The room was... More

I have stayed in Portsmouth on numerous occasions and have never had a better nights sleep than in this very homely and quaint B&B, excellent and attentive friendly service from arrival until checkout, spotlessly clean with good quality decor, beds, bedding and accessories. Breakfast was absolutely beautiful including the home made yogurt. I now know where I will be staying... More

This small B&B is well presented, spotless clean with elegant decor and good quality beds, bedding and accessories. The breakfast was delicious and generous with fresh fruit and cereals as well as...

This is a lovely place to stay. Gill is so welcoming and very helpful. Breakfast is excellent and her home made yogurt is so tasty. Parking is easy and you get a free permit from Jill. Near the front so not far to walk to see the sea.
