We have just returned from a one night stay at number 4 and thought the hotel was amazing. We stayed in a superior room with bath and the room was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The staff at the hotel made us feel very welcome and the breakfast was lovely in the small basement restaurant. A wonderful lounge awaits you... More

When we booked this hotel, there was only one small double room left and although the description was totally accurate, we found the room very comfortable and well thought out. The shower area was a fine example of what can be done in a small space. The attention to detail was superb... I thought I would miss not having a... More

We recently had 2 nights at this lovely hotel and enjoyed it very much. We specified a ground floor room on booking which is what we got, would not have liked to do the stairs. Our room was a small double and it was quite small but it was a lovely room with great decor and a window that could... More

We stayed here for one night while visiting the Historic Dockyards. The hotel is stylish and very comfortable. The breakfast room is in the basement, overlooking the garden, and is quite lovely. Breakfast was tasty and nicely served. The only warning I would give is that the small twin room at the front of the hotel is indeed very small.... More

I was there 3 days and I really enjoyed all the time I spent there. Great location and really friendly staff. There's a lot of restaurants near the hotel, where you can eat from spanish "tapas" to Indian rice. No doubt, best hotel in Portsmouth. Keep rocking guys!

We spent a very pleasant night here in July on the third floor. Our small cases were carried up for us but we did wonder about some of our friends who would not have been able to manage the stairs. I don't remember a warning when we booked on the website?? The room was lovely but no shower so we... More

We Stayed here for one night in order to take the ferry to France. The property is a very nice Victorian house renovated into a sleek, modern boutique hotel. The staff was helpful and the breakfast had a nice selection of hot and cold options. Our only difficulty was that the room was very warm. Even with all of the... More

Stayed at the Number 4 hotel for the Bank holiday weekend in the executive suite. The hotel was lovely, the room was perfect for our one night stay. We were also well looked after by the one of the hotels staff (Lisa) which made our stay even better. I would definitely stay there again!

We only stayed the one night but the room was very clean and sunny. The bathroom had high quality toiletries and the bed was very comfortable. The staff were friendly and gave us a good overview of our dinner options around Portsmouth. The breakfast had a very good range. Poached eggs, tomatoes and mushrooms were excellent. I would definitely stay... More
