What a delight. We booked the hotel on line and were delighted when we arrived. The room was delightful but the wifi and the TV didn't work properly. We were promptly changed to another room which was perfect. The staff were friendly and informative. The hotel has a great feel. When next in the area this will be our first... More

We were meant to stay for 3 nights but only stayed for one.....every time we heard the plumbing noice ( from others in the hotel) we heard gurgling in the bathroom and won't mention what came up through the plug hole in the sink - disgusting. Appreciate that old hotels occasionally have the occasional plumbing issue, but..... Wouldn't have minded... More

Portsmouth needed a place like the Hotel Portsmouth, and this will definitely be our hotel of choice when we visit in the future. It has all the charm of a B&B but is large enough to have the amenities of a hotel. The location could not be better, on a quiet side street yet just a short walk of the... More

Nice place. Off the beaten path. If you're looking for a unique hotel, one that isn't cookie cutter a la marriott, hilton etc then this is a nice place to stay. They are really trying to make it hip and funky. Bedding was comfortable, room nicely appointed. The continental breakfast had delicious coffee and pastries. Overall a really nice stay.

As soon as you see it you'll love it. I loved my stayed there and it feels so much like I was at home. The place was well decorated and smart and clean. My room was awesome. I had to share my room with my parents and I got the room where there is a bunk bed and a large... More

Stayed at The Hotel Portsmouth this past weekend and it was more than we had hoped for. Visiting Portsmouth is always a treat but staying in an updated historical building makes it all the more better. Our room was a bit smaller than anticipated. We stayed in a King Deluxe (Room 403 if I recall correct); but with that said...... More

Hands down best stay at a b&b type hotel I've ever had. The attention to detail here is amazing. The rooms are perfect. Parking is included in reservation. Very clean!!! Was told the duvets are washed before new guests arrive. And they provide the highest standard shampoo/conditioner/body products (malin & goetz). Front desk staff is very helpful and friendly. Walking... More

We really enjoyed our two night stay! The Hotel is tastefully decorated and very comfortable. Our Queen Suite was large, very clean and comfortable. The Staff was nice and helpful, we were given a map upon arrival of the town and their suggestions of what to do and where to eat. Everything was right on the mark. The location is... More

Personal attention to every detail has gone into this property. The owners have knack of creating a different kind of retreat from the norm. Personalized services .. simple luxuries to be found throughout the property and a warm cozy inviting atmosphere from the moment you pull into the driveway. I brought my Single Speed 29er to explore the surrounding areas... More
