Suggested by a friend it could have not been better suggestion. We were on our way down to Seven Sisters and we stopped in this lovely boutique situated in a residential area 5 minutes walk by the beach, which for me was essential.

Plus the usual... More

The hotel has a bus stop just outside where you can catch a bus straight into Gunwarf quays and the historic dockyard. We stayed in room 3 a small double, while the size of the room didn't worry me the bathroom... More

The receptionist was lovely and was very helpful when giving advice on the best places to eat and visit in Portsmouth. The beds were extremely comfortable with fresh crisp... More

We arrived early as we needed to change for an event and the staff had kindly had our room made up first as we had emailed ahead. The receptionist was polite and very helpful even helping to carry bags in from the car. We ordered lunch and fresh Panninis and coke enjoyed in the garden. The room was large and... More

Lovely hotel... Very clean and comfortable, could not fault the staff in the hotel or the hotel restaurant where we had a lovely meal. Everyone very friendly, We've never stayed in a nicer b & b and can't wait to go back.
