We just got back from a weekend in Portsmouth, NH and loved this place! It's very warm and inviting-they have thought of every detail! Also, it's within walking distance of some really amazing restaurants.

This hotel made me smile our entire stay. It has clearly been recently renovated and the attention to detail is very obvious and appreciated. The building is magnificent for its age and the rooms spacious, clean and comfortable. My husband and I stayed in a simple queen room and it was perfect for our overnight stay. Bed was very comfortable,... More

Having stayed in many large chain hotels, I was looking for something a little different on this trip and The Hotel Portsmouth more than delivered. Above all else I just found the hotel had a very nice atmosphere and the whole property was very tasteful. Breakfast was simple but decent, although the coffee was pretty dire as is often the...

If you are planning a trip to Portsmouth NH, this is the hotel for the stay. Walking distance to everything downtown is a great feature but the hotel stands alone for many other reasons. The rooms are amazing, all recently updated. Beautifully decorated, feels like home! Breakfast had real food from places like Trader Joe's, need I say more! The... More

The last time we stayed at this property, over 10 years ago, it was the Sise Inn. We were surprised to find out it had changed ownership, and been renamed, but what a pleasant surprise! We had a very quick getaway weekend planned, and The Hotel Portsmouth turned out to be the right choice. They just finished a renovation in... More

Our new favorite hotel! Accommodations were utterly charming and impeccably designed. Staff was superb! Dana and Chris anticipated our every need and were extremely friendly and professional. We will be back!

We stayed only one night at The Hotel Portsmouth and we loved it. My husband and I have been in the food and lodging industry for MANY years. We are picky and frugal. This hotel was beautiful, clean, reasonably priced and perfectly located. We would go back in a heartbeat.

We stayed for an overnight on March 7, 2015. We've stayed here before and would not hesitate to stay again and again. Very clean and comfortable! Not your 'cookie cut style' of 'regular' hotels. For me and my husband, it gives us both the enjoyment of staying at a 'hotel' and an 'inn'. Staff is excellent - very friendly and... More

My boyfriend and I originally planned to stay in Portsmouth, NH for a little Valentine's Day weekend getaway. Unfortunately, due to an impending storm, we decided it was best to forego the trip. We called the hotel to see if we could make arrangements in order to not lose out on our deposit and the staff was more than understanding.... More

At the last minute we booked this hotel for a late arrival (after midnight). At every point--making our reservation, checking in, and checking out--the staff was friendly, efficient, and helpful. The spacious room exceeded our expectations, with a very comfortable bed and no noise. The hotel's decor is well thought out, and the breakfast options are varied and plentiful. We... More
