“2nd visit here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

Again - I'd recommend the White Lodge B&B for Southsea, Portsmouth area (ships / visits). Great rooms with enough off-street parking (or even on-street (& very nearby) if you can't squeeze in cos of someone else's parking). Again we were visiting our daughter nearby but also took in the New Forest area this time which was great. Again, met by Martin & staff so again - thanks to all.

Room Tip: All rooms are nice & even at the front of the building you are protected from much of the inevit...

Our room was noisy just in front of the street. Despite a warm welcome, we had for breakfast not the quality that we could expect to get for a 130£ B&B at 20 mins walk from the seafront. In overall we were disappointed.

Room Tip: Not the one in front of the street

Thank you for your review which helps us to improve our service for all of our guests. So sorry to hear that, despite being set back from the street, you found your room noisy. For a city centre location our situation is relatively quiet although, unfortunately, sometimes it can peak.

Disappointed that our breakfast not meet your expectations as this is an area that is regularly complimented on; it is always helpful if guests can raise issues during their stay so we can try to rectify them; as from your comments it is not clear exactly what you would have liked. For the record we offer a selection of fruit juices, fresh fruit, yogurts, a range of branded cereals and muesli, freshly brewed coffee, breakfast tea & a range of speciality teas, full English breakfast and eggs cooked to your requirements, plus white & wholemeal toast accompanied by a range of branded preserves.

Our location in central Southsea means we are ideally situated to easily walk to the wide range of attractions the city offers; typically 15 - 20 min walk or a five-minute drive. We do provide a map on the booking page of our website (and I know that the various online booking agents do so to); provided to enable guests to check that the location suits their requirements prior to booking.

I stayed at the White lodge for 4 months on business and found them to be very helpfull and welcoming with good breakfasts and a friendly atmosphere. The rooms wre excellent and good access to other eating facilities nearby. The off street parking was usefull but did occasionally become get cosy as the space is limited.

Generally very pleased and would stay there again if I need to

Room Tip: The front room is a little noisy from the street but not too bad the rooms at the rear are excellent...

Thank you for your kind comments which help us to improve our services. Yes, being located in central Southsea means just about all of the cities attractions are within 15-20 min walking distance. Hope we will see you again in the future.

Stayed over Easter (3 nights for price of 2) and with our 7 & 10 year old we found the family room very spacious, clean and welcoming.... but our room was at the front of the house and the road noise made it difficult to settle and also offered an early morning wake up call. The cooked breakfast was excellent but a little more choice would have been appreciated, e.g. offer of croissants, grapefruit, a more varied fruitbowl or yoghurt. Even with the "offer" price I felt this was top money rather than good value.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back of the property

thank you for your review, your comments are noted and will help us improve our service for future customers. Regarding the traffic , I accept that for some guests not used to city living it can be a little noisy; unfortunately there is little we can do to ameliorate this. However, where guests are sensitive to noise we are happy to offer the rooms at the rear of The White Lodge subject to availability

Bearing in mind that many of the largers chains room rates do not include breakfast and typically charge £8-10 per person for breakfast I believe that £93 a night for a family of four including a freshly cooked to order breakfast plus free Wi-Fi and free parking does offer very good value for money.

Stayed for 3 nights at this B&B to visit with our daughter living nearby. The off-street parking at these premises / in this area is most welcome (albeit a full house would make it first come/first parked as it could be quite tight when used by more than 4 cars) - however, you should find somewhere nearby on the roadside with little problem. The house is close to the centre of the town & is just as described & very cosy it is too - with a large bedroom for our stay (room 1). Perfectly quiet (even though it was at the front of the building). This large room had what you would need for a short stay (Less a hairdryer though) with plenty of shampoo / conditioner / body wash in the large shower. The room was kept spotless (by Iona) & the breakfast (by Iona) was definitely most ample & with good quality foods (including fresh fruit) & fresh fruit drinks / Coffee & tea - as much as you like.
As a negative - Well, we can only say that a hairdryer would be nice in the room & the fitted sheet was a little small for the (lovely & comfy) size of the mattress! But this is only mentioned 'to find a negative here' ... not really a problem for us.
Thank you for meeting us & helping with the bags on arrival Martin - We would chose this home again for sure & recommend it to anyone considering this area ...

Room Tip: We had room No.1 at the house front / by the parked cars. There is no aircon if that means much to y...

Booked for an overnight last minute stay for a local party. The welcome was warm, check in quick and good explanation of the room facilities, breakfast and how to get back into the accommodation later. Room was very clean and modern, bathroom lovely, lots of hot water. Tea and coffee in the room. Bed very comfortable. Breakfast full English was very good cooked fresh and lots of tea, coffee and toast. Would highly recommend this b & b.

Room Tip: It is on a busy road so if you a light sleeper ask for a room at the back.
