Our stay was over two months ago (early November), but I felt so much pressure to post a review worthy of our experience that I've procrastinated until now. I was looking for a unique place to spend a long weekend before a business trip nearby and The Hotel Portsmouth met my every expectation. We found the hotel the perfect combination... More

The Hotel Portsmouth is everything you'd hope it would be ... and then some. The property itself is gorgeous, cozy and welcoming. The staff may be even better. The folks who work at this hotel are by far the nicest, most helpful hotel staff we've ever encountered. You feel taken care of from the moment you walk up to the... More

I recently stayed at the Hotel Portsmouth for the first time. The hotel is very inviting the the staff was incredible. The hotel is old and shows its age, but that's what gives it its character. It is not a large chain hotel, and may not be right for people looking for that. The Our room was comfortable and as... More

For a trip that was a combination of both business and pleasure, my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Hotel Portsmouth. It truly feels like a home away from home, not only because of the amenities and the attention paid to detail, but owners Doug & Dan and the staff really did a great job making us... More

Our first stay in Portsmouth, NH and we chose The Hotel Portsmouth. A charming hotel with so much character. We wish we could have stayed more than one night! It's a great location with stores, shops, and restaurants all within walking distance. The hotel provides a map of the town with all great recommendations to dine, shop, and explore. We... More

Going to Portsmouth for an evening away, my boyfriend and I chose to stay here at the Hotel Portsmouth. From the moment we walked in we loved it. Great design and laid back feel. The staff was amazing. We arrived early, knowing our room wouldn't be ready. We hit downtown and received a call letting us know our room was... More

Everything you would want in a delightful hotel! Beautifully decorated with a mix of antique style and modern touches with helpful and friendly staff. Our room was charming and very clean. Nice breakfast room and continental breakfast; we especially liked the two sitting rooms with comfortable chairs for reading and conversation. We felt right at home. Easy to walk to... More

Beau took me away for a Christmas gift to this absolutely charming town with the best hotel we've stayed in EVER. Everything was gorgeously decorated, the room was clean, the shower was super modern, bed was the most comfortable sleep ever! We stayed 2 nights and loved every bit of it. The room came with the most adorable etched water... More

No, that's not a typo. But if you can identify the movie* that particular spelling of "love" is from, then chances are you'll lurve The Hotel Portsmouth, too. If you don't like it, chances are you just don't get (or appreciate) what the owners are going for: a boutiquey/artsy restored old inn that's a fun, relatively luxurious, infinitely more intimate/personal...

Absolutely loved this hotel. Wish we had stayed for more than 1 night! Great location, super clean and gorgeous decor. Staff was the best part, everyone at the desk was SO kind and helpful, giving us some great tips on local spots. Couldn't have asked for a nicer stay.
