Our room was not large but perfectly adequate for 2. The staff was nice and the location made it easy to walk around town. The breakfast was a continental breakfast but the homemade scones and banana bread were a nice touch. Would definitely stay again.

We go to Portsmouth several times a year. We just spent 2 nights at The Hotel Portsmouth and we never want to stay anywhere else. The renovations are exquisite, the rooms are soooooo comfortable and everyone who works there is friendly,helpful and accommodating. This has to be the best small hotel evah! But don't pass it on or we will... More

Long overdue review as my girlfriend and I stayed here last winter but the hotel is great and very reasonably priced. The hotel is in the perfect location as it is a quick 5 minute walk to all of the downtown restaurants, bars and stores. They have a free parking lot in the back of the hotel where you can... More

The hotel is clean and well maintained. The staff are professional and friendly. We loved the location. It was so relaxing to just park the car and walk everywhere we wanted to go. The room was spacious, the bed comfortable and the wifi fast. The complimentary breakfast was convenient and well done. The place has a B&B feel with snacks... More

I live on Long Island. Tried to spend 2 nights in an oceanfront hotel in Montauk a week BEFORE Memorial Day. They wanted a 3 night minimum at over $300/night. This experience began my search elsewhere. I've always wanted to explore New Hamshire. After many hours of research on the different regions in NH, I found that Pourtsmouth fit our... More

We enjoyed every minute of our stay at The Hotel Portsmouth. We were all over New England the past 2 weeks and this by far was our favorite stay. The front desk staff was friendly and knowledgeable of the area. We could easily walk to just about anywhere we wanted to be-- restaurants, shops, etc. The breakfast was continental. It... More

What a great find!! This was our first time to Portsmouth, NH and loved everything about our stay. The staff was phenomenal, the room was very spacious and we didn't feel like we were cramped, and it was extremely clean. The continental breakfast was lovely as well. It was within walking distance of everything! Loved our stay!!

Great Experience!!! Have a very enjoyable stay. Staff were friendly and helpful. Room was very clean and a good size. The hotel itself was comforting and inviting. The location was perfect. It had class, which a lot of hotels are lacking these days.

Everything was perfect..in fact all the up to date decor, the ultra modern bathroom, the eco friendly policies, all great. Loved the common rooms, the dining room and Sun porch. Oh, and a perfect mattress for a great night's sleep. Very close to Jumpin Jays Seafood restaurant.. a very short walk. Will return, no doubt.

We chose The Portsmouth Hotel so that we could reach all the sights, restaurants etc on foot. It is well located just a block away from the center of activity in downtown Portsmouth and offers free parking which is hard to come by downtown. It was perfect for us with two young kids to walk everywhere and be able to... More
