The Festing Grove is a little and typically English guest house. Situated in a calm and peaceful atmosphere, it is very close both to Southsea beach and to Albert Road, where you can find a lot of nice ethnic restaurants and pubs. The rooms are very clean and nicely furnished; some of them have an en-suite bathroom, while in others... More

We stayed at a number of B & B's in the UK recently and this was our first stop. Parking is at a premium but once parked we left the car and walked everywhere - pretty much everything is close at hand. Our room was very nice - up a couple of flights of stairs but had a separate bathroom... More

I booked Festing Grove B&B through the Visitor Information Centre just outside the Naval History Museum at Portsmouth and although it was some distance from the dockyard it was easy to get to, as one of the local busses ran to within about 100 metres of Festing Grove, and only about a ten minute bus ride. The owner was very... More

We spent a whole week at Festing Grove and used it as a base to discover the Historic Dockyard and for trips in the area. Our room was very clean and perfect for us, as we stayed with our three year oid child. The staff is friendly and helpful, the breakfast excellent. Festing Grove is located in a nice area... More

Everything about my stay at the Festing Grove was wonderful. The proprietor is very friendly and helpful. I called him direct to book a room and explained that I would be flying into London then would go to Portsmouth from there. He graciously described how to travel from London to Portsmouth and on to Festing Grove. When I did arrive,... More

Our room was perfect - everything was very clean and tidy. The sheets were crisp and clean, even the duvet cover had been washed which is something we've not seen in pricey hotels. The host was excellent - full of information and was very friendly. Breakfast was superb - well presented, plenty of it and was exactly what we asked... More
