Very charming house, comfortable room and bed. Wonderful host and great English breakfast. The host is an encyclopaedia of history facts and it was a thrill to talk with him. I wish I had had more time. Will certainly be back

We stayed at Lombard house in July for the Americas Cup. All aspects of our stay exceeded expectations from Alex’s warm welcome and great conversation throughout, the house and our room, the excellent breakfast, et al. Alex, Lombard House will be first choice for our next visit.

This B&B is wonderfully located near historic Portsmouth. Alex, the owner, is a wonderfully friendly and helpful fellow who knows an extraordinary amount of the history of Portsmouth and, especially, Admiral Nelson.

I had a last minute change of ferry booking, so needed a one night stay in Portsmouth and chose Lombard House from the reviews here. So pleased I did. A little old fashioned, but only in a quaint way, as it had everything you could want and bags of character. Also, the loveliest owners ever - really friendly, passionate about... More

Very welcoming and well placed in Old Portsmouth. On street parking wasn't a problem. Not suitable for anyone who has difficulty with narrow steep stairs as the 2 bedrooms are on the top floor and breakfast is served in the basement (which has a low ceiling). I should have asked for non allergic pillows as the feather pillows set my... More

We have just been to Lombard house for another visit, our third, and have booked another visit in November. Enough said? Alex's breakfast is still the biggest and best that I've had. Many thanks to Finney and Alex.

One of the downsides of a good review is that other people will discover your 'personal find' and then it is not just yours!!! As a re-enactor myself it was a joy to discover 'Nelson' on the premises. Alex has been known to portray him in the past, and he even looks like him too!! Breakfast was in the unique... More

My wife and I had stayed at Lombard House in May 2013 and were so impressed we had to stay there again ! The property dates back we understand to the 17th century and is full of character. Alex is a brilliant host and nothing was too much trouble. There are only two rooms at Lombard, the yellow room and... More
