Rooms were comfortable but a bit this feels like student accommodation which I think it is. The best bit is the great location by a very nice sheltered beach and a good bar & restaurant. the staff were also excellent very helpful and good advice. When i left my camera on a table one of the staff thoughtfully locked it... More

Dont be misleaded by booking sites; there are plenty of cheap sleeping possibilities in portsmouth .... We asked our bus driver and he arranged an apartment for 80ecs , and it seemed also that written could have found easy other guesthouses for around 100ecs.... But we also didn't find portsmouth worth a visit....

We spent one night here as a stop over before heading to Roseau. The staff was excellent and even found me a taxi on a holiday when no other taxis would take me to Roseau. The location is close to enough places where you can walk to grab a bite as well, which was good for us since we did... More

I had the occasion to stay five days in PBH and I was impressed by both the staff and the location. Portsmouth allowed me the flexibility to get to Fort Shirley and the Northern Forest Reserve to go parrot watching. Roseau is accesible for a day trip, but for those travellers used to Sint Maarten or the southern Caribbean, it... More

Traveled to see Ross Medical, Hotel is right next to school, but an hour away from Roseau, so good location for school. breakfast is good, awesome view. The rooms are right on the beach. Average for the price paid. The rooms are clean and have AC, which is needed in August, but the rooms are far from luxurious-it's like camping... More

Please correct your location pins. Portsmouth Beach Hotel is located on a golden sand beach on the north-west coast of Dominica, just half a mile from Portsmouth.

Not a bad place to stay if you have reasonable expectations. We were taking a long Caribbean vacation to a few different islands and on a budget. We weren't booking high-end resorts. We were pleasantly surprised with the room, actually. It had a nice view of the sea (which was unexpected) and a little balcony to sit on. The staff... More

My wife and I just stayed here as we accompanied my daughter to Ross University Medical School. Having done extensive research before going I purposely chose this facility. The first thing you need to realize is Dominica is not like any other Caribbean resort destination. In fact if it weren't for Ross I doubt seriously very many people would visit... More

The Portsmouth Beach Hotel is more than a hotel it is a "dormitory" for Ross University students. The rooms are rustic, with no glass windows only shutters with a maybe it works air conditioning unit to help keep one cool. Most all rooms have a nice view of the ocean which is a plus. There are only stairs. Each room... More
