We enjoyed our stay here. Easy to find, easy to park. The weather was foul which cut short our visit of Portsmouth, arrived early. Staff were all very nice, we had some lunch in the lounge whilst room was prepared and were really looked after. The room was pleasant, clean, the bathroom a little small and lacking shelf space but... More

I booked this place last minute without checking TA reviews first.... It didn't disappoint. We arrived around 8pm and the receptionist was very helpful and attentive and recommended a local Tapas bar (Nicholsons) because the sister hotel/restaurant was fully booked. The hotel is tastefully decorated with a small well equipped bar (Peroni on tap) and a lounge with big sofas... More

We spent 2 nights in this lovely hotel, in room number 2 [small double] and we enjoyed every moment there. It is close to the sea and also to Albert Street, which is crowded with pubs and restaurants. The staff was very polite and helpful, breakfast was also good. Would definitely go back there!

Our stay at the number four boutique was lovely. We stayed in the luxury room with the shower and bath in the room and it was just beautiful. The only thing they can be faulted on is charging us £5 for 2 bottles of water and the breakfast was cold: hot chocolate and toast was cold when delivered to our... More

Overall we were a bit disappointed during our one night stay. There were no drink facilities in the room and any tea coffee etc had to be ordered from reception. The heating was off until 7pm which in march was a bit chilly. Breakfast however was good and the room was generally comfortable.

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel so soon after departing. We were sorry to receive such a low grading when the feedback left on departure was that you had had a good stay with us. I'm sorry this was not in fact the case. As advertised on all websites - including the agent you booked the... More

Enjoyed our stay very much at Number Four. We had room 7 which was nice and spotlessly clean. Staff were very friendly and helpful especially Connie who looked after us very well and bought us tea and coffee whenever requested. Breakfast was delicious with a good choice of everything. Hope to stay here again when visiting family.

A last minute get away, didn't we do well! We stayed in the suite, a fantastic room, spotlessly clean and great value for money. Greeted and looked after by everyone we were left to our own devices but we like that. Room ten is gorgeous, there's not too much more to say, this hotel is a great little allrounder and... More

We had a clean, comfortable, quiet room at this charming hotel. The staff were helpful and friendly, providing directions, offering advise on restaurants, and providing tea service. Breakfast was excellent and freshly cooked. We'd would definitely stay here again if in the area.

This is a lovely hotel. My wife and I stayed a couple of nights while visiting the area. The room was excellent and had a sitting room with TV as well as the bedroom area (the Garden Room). Breakfast was excellent and the staff also friendly and helpful, apart from one of the waitresses at breakfast, though I wouldn't let... More
