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

Incredibly soft bed and armchair. Great location, close to everything. Restaurants close by. One literally next door. A lovely italian restaurant that we thoroughly enjoyed. Lovely breakfast and a gorgeous... 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...

Stayed here for 5 nights whilst working in Portsmouth and what a very comfortable, friendly and well equipped B&B it is. The pier is very convenient to all the major historic attractions (10-15 mins walk from Gunwharf Quay and 20 mins walk from historic dockyards (Victory & MaryRose etc) & 5 mins drive from Ferries I had one of the...

Another very enjoyable short stay at The Pier while visiting family in Portsmouth. Gill, the owner, is friendly and attentive and maintains excellent standards here. The whole place is light, bright, tidy and spotless. Breakfasts are excellent and tasty, and the home made yogurt is definitely not to be missed! I had a lovely light, bright and warm room on...

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...

We received a warm welcome from the owner on arrival. The room was good size on the top floor. 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.
