We stayed at the Duke of Buckingham for 3 nights in July 2010. We found the staff very friendlly, courteous and very helpful. Our room was very small, and the en-suite was tiny, but both were clean and comfortable. I had read other reviews before booking, so I knew what to expect, and we were quite happy with thre facilities.
The B&B is attached to a pub, which actually gave it a good atnosphere. The breakfasts were really nice, and we ate two evening meals there, which were also good quality 'pib' food. I thought parking might be a problem, but we had not trouble findng a place in the street, and they give you a pass to allow you to park there for free.
The place is well located, in a rather quiet, mostly residential street - easy walking distance from Portsmouth's main attractions.
We did have trouble with the hot water in the shower in our room, and ended up using the shared shower in the hallway outside our room (which was fine). When I mentioned this problem, I was told that the hot water in that room (room 4) was a bit 'tricky' - I suggest it is something they should attend to.
