Enjoyed a two night stay in this small hotel which is well situated near the esplanade in Southsea with a bus stop right outside for buses into Southsea and Portsmouth What was obviously a standard B and B has been transformed by careful design and renovation into an attractive small hotel. The limitations of the building are overcome by the... More

This is a large Edwardian house that has been converted into a small boutique hotel. The plus points include that it is very close to the sea front and many of the local restaurants and attractions. There is parking for a few cars on the hard-standing and free parking in the street. The décor is very attractive; subtle and sophisticated... More

The staff at the number four boutique hotel were really lovely, approachable, attentive and helpful. They demonstrated lots of knowledge of the local area and gave good recommendations for places to go. The hotel itself was beautifully and tastefully decorated and although our room was a little on the snug side, it had everything we could need or want. We... More

Every room is decorated impeccably and the staff could not be more helpful! We were travelling as two families with 4 children in total. We came home from dinner and the staff had made balloon animals and swords for the children, which they absolutely loved. Breakfast was excellent. I couldn't recommend more highly. You should definitely stay here.

For once I stayed in a hotel for pleasure not business. Very glad so say that room was superb, staff extremely helpful and the decoration was very modern and comfortable. Will be back for sure!. They are happy to bring anything up to your room - tea - coffee - wine etc. Nothing too much trouble.
