We had a great time at The Hotel Portsmouth. The staff was wonderful, very friendly and helped make reservations for our group at a local restaurant. We enjoyed visiting with family and friends in the parlor and found the rooms to be cozy and full of character. Boutique hotels are not like the generic "cookie cutter" of the big chains... More

Oh my word!! II'm torn about writing a glowing review about the Hotel Portsmouth. I fear when I return they will be all booked. The Hotel Portsmouth is a gem of a place. The staff is amazing. Kind, friendly, helpful and very sincere. So refreshing to be in a beautiful home instead of a corporate box chain hotel.

We stayed at the Portsmouth Hotel this past weekend for the first time since the property was purchased by the new owners and completely renovated. We had stayed at there several times prior to the renovations and loved it - but the updated version of the Portsmouth Hotel really impressed us, as did the new owners and the members of... More

I'm not a big B&B fan, but the Hotel Portsmouth is really outside that realm. Recently remodeled, the hotel definitely has a boutique hotel feel, but maintains its historic roots. Loved the room, bed super comfortable, shower nice, and location awesome. Could walk to restaurants and downtown Portsmouth. The front desk person was hospitable without being too chatty. The breakfast... More

I have had four business trips to Portsmouth this year and stayed at the The Hotel Portsmouth each time. Here you are treated are treated like family in what I believe was a prior family manor. Beautiful wood finishes, fireplaces and a cozy atmosphere so lacking in today's "cookie cutter" mega hotel chains. Stay at the Hotel Portsmouth, you won't... More

Went out on a limb and booked our stay without the approval of my wife, thought I would live dangerously, and I received nothing but thanks from the wife for taking the bull by the horns. This place is great, it is obvious that they put the best of everything into the rooms. It was very close to the Music... More

My husband and I went to Portsmouth to see the play "Mary Poppins". It was at The Music Hall, a short walking distance from the Hotel Portsmouth. The hotel was in an ideal spot for everything we wanted to do. There are great restaurants near by. Once we parked our car in the hotel lot, that is where it stayed... More

We had a king room in the old part of the hotel. It has been beautifully renovated, and the bed was extremely comfortable. The bathroom had a gorgeous shower. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We found the location to be a very easy walk to everything downtown. Don't let the address fool you, it really is very close... More

My boyfriend and I recently spent 2 nights at the Hotel Portsmouth and absolutely loved it! The hotel is very modern and well kept as well as cozy. We stayed in the Deluxe Queen room which was the perfect size for the two of us. The bed was extremely comfortable and we both had a great nights sleep. The location... More

What an amazing hotel with a bed & breakfast kind of feel. We were very impressed with the staff, cleanliness and overall feel. It was also nice to be so close to the downtown area and shops. I was impressed that the front desk clerk offered for us to leave our car while we went shopping. I will definitely be... More
