The Pier is in an excellent location for visiting all the main attractions in Portsmouth. We had an enjoyable few days in Portsmouth. The room was delightful and the bed very comfortable. The only slight negative was the bathroom pod, which included a shower and we. The sink was in the bedroom.

Spent 3 nights at this wonderful B&B so that we could visit Portsmouth and the Historic Dockyard. Service was excellent and the breakfast one of the best we have ever had. Included in the price was a parking permit for the duration of our stay which meant we could park outside the B&B and then forget about the car. There's... More

On our first trip to England, we stayed in three B&Bs. The first two were recommended by Rick Steves "Great Britain". Since the book does not cover Portsmouth, we had to pick a B&B on our own. What we found at The Pier was the best of the three. Jill, the innkeeper, was friendly and helpful. She even offered to... More

We stayed in this fab hotel as a family of 4 (2 rooms) I could not praise this lovely hotel enough. What a lovely welcome. Landlady, Gill, could not be more welcoming and helpful. The freshly laundered white bedlinen was a delight. Breakfast was delicious and the rooms are very well equipped. This is a great B&B and I am... More

We stayed just 1 night. The room was comfortable and individual. Bathroom is as described on the web site, no problem with it being on the small side, it is really a neat design, but the water temperature was hard to control. Location great, 15 minutes walk to historic dockyard, 10 to Gunwharf, 10 to Clarence Pier. Very welcoming, lovely... More

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

We have just returned from a fantastic weekend in Portsmouth. And wanting to stay in a B&B which was well located and offered an individual style. 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
