I always enjoy staying in this lovely B & B while visiting family in Portsmouth. Gill, the owner, is always friendly and attentive and maintains excellent standards here! My room was on the first floor at the back - light, bright, warm and spotless with a really comfy bed. Breakfasts here are superb, beautifully presented, plenty of choice and freshly... More

We stayed for one night in this lovely B & B which was walking distance to our venue. On arrival we were welcomed by the owner, Gill, who was very hospitable. The room we had was twin-bedded and although quite small was immaculately decorated and scrupulously clean. Both beds were very comfortable and satisfied our needs perfectly. The breakfast was...

My husband and I stayed the night before a trip to No Mans Fort. The room was beautiful and bright and spotlessly clean. Gill was very welcoming and very helpful. Breakfast was also perfect. Parking outside the guest house helped us immensely and as a favour Gill allowed us to leave the car while we were on the fort .... More

Gill W, Owner at The Pier, responded to this review

Thank you Diane, I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay here and could take advantage of one of my parking permits whilst you stayed at the fort, you were lucky that I had a customer staying here that came by train and didn't need her permit whilst you were away as I only have one permit for each room.

Checked in for a night before the Portsmouth marathon. Gill the owner was very warm and helpful giving us a parking permit straight away. Room 3 was big with a massive bed. The Pier is walking distance to Gunwharf Quay and other places of interest. Gill did breakfast earlier for me as I had an early start which was a... More

This is the second time we have stayed with Gill. We were so impressed with the room and service along with the amazing breakfast the first visit, we had no hesitation in returning. We are so glad we did. My wife and I were in room 2, as we were before and love how comfortable it is. Everything has been... More

Was very impressed, the owner greeted us with a parking permit. The room was exceptionally clean and tidy with all the amenities we needed for our one night stay. Breakfast was very good and the service was excellent. Only 10 min walk from Southsea and 15 mins to gun wharf. Higher recommended.

Really lovely place to stay. Gill looked after us very well and breakfast was to die for. Very very clean and comfortable. Cannot fault anything. Would love to come back to Portsmouth, plenty to do and see and lovely sea walks within minutes from the B & B, First Class.

After a warm welcome and a much appreciated cup of tea from the lovely Gill, we were shown to our immaculately clean room. The bed was really comfortable, and the breakfast the following morning was very very good. I can't rate this highly enough, for comfort, cleanliness and value for money, and will stay again when in the area for... More

Very friendly service, especially re parking the car on the street, even after we had checked out. The room was nicely decorated, lovely bed linen and comfortable beds. However with the outstanding Trip Advisor rating, I had expected something more than a very small twin room. It was so narrow the shower and sink were squeezed in at one end,... More
