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.

Only a short walk from the Portsmouth attractions and the real bonus being the free parking. A warm, friendly welcome and a very clean and tidy place. The breakfast was excellent and Gill was always most attentive. The bedroom was more than adequate, although we have to agree with some of the comments about the shower room. However, this in...

The shower was a bit small for us as we are quite tall people.The location was not too bad, bit further out of the city center, but easy 10-15 mins walk away. Few nice places to east ournd the hotel.

Pretty much the perfect B&B, warm welcome, clean and well appointed rooms, free WiFi, fantastic breakfast and reasonably priced. I wish all B&Bs were like this. We'll definitely be back next time we stay on Portsmouth

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
