We only stayed one night at the Duke of Buckingham before catching the ferry for France in the morning. The staff was very helpful, the room was nice and we had an easy walk to areas of interest. I wish we'd had a little more time to look around Portsmouth and would have gladly stayed here a few more nights.

The location in Old Portsmouth was perfect for our visit to the historic dockyards, which were an easy walk from the hotel. We parked outside the hotel for our three night stay, using the allocated parking permit. The hotel was immaculately clean.The staff were very pleasant and helpful. Although there was no breakfast served on site we chose to eat... More

When you are in Portsmouth and look for a nice room to stay, we strongly advice the Duke Of Buckingham. The roms are hyper tidy, well equipped and the staff is lovely. If you travel by car, the parking permit is free, don't hesitate to ask for a bit more of time. The rooms are not big and there is... More

Just a brief stay but we got there nice and early at 9:30 and got a parking permit which meant we had freedom to park in Old Portsmouth and have a lovely morning walking around before we hit the serious shopping at Gunwalf which was within walking distance. Ready for a 5 min ride to the ferry to the IOW... More

All staff friendly and helpful. Close to station, close to gunwharf quays, close to ferry and hovercraft! Will definitely return again.

Stayed here for 2 nights in room 18 in the cottage behind the pub. Great room, clean and well presented. Did get woken up by sound of empty glass bottles from the pub next door being thrown into recycling bin twice, but soon went back off to sleep!! Ideally situated within walking distance of Gunwharf Quays and Southsea. Friendly, helpful... More

Converted garage.... It doesn’t sound as bad as the title brings to mind but still a garage in the end so the room was ok for the price and clean and tidy, bed was nice pillows were spot on! But the negatives really weigh it down. Lets start off with the fact that the room is on the bottom floor... More
