We spent one night at The Pier but wished it had been more! Excellent location and within walking distance of the historic dockyard and the seafront. Gill is a lovely hostess, very warm and genuine, and you even are given a parking permit for the streets around the house so that you dont have to pay for parking which is... More

Gill was there to meet me, very friendly and accommodating a pleasure to deal with. B&B is well located in Southsea, close to many attractions. I enjoyed walking to Old Portsmouth along the seafront. My room was a good size, comfortable bed and well maintained room. Breakfast was filling to say the least! I would highly recommend this B&B and... More

Gill was waiting at the door when we arrived and after showing us our room and outlining some basic details, she left us to do our own thing. The key to our room was also a front door key, so we were able to come and go as we pleased. The room was clean, cosy and welcoming; the bed comfortable... More

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
