Short walks: From Station, from Historic Trail on seafont at Clarence Pier, from City Centre, from Gunwharf Quays (Shopping?). Clean, comfortable, good breakfast and despite being on a bus route reasonably quiet. Good value accomodation.

I booked this hotel just as a convenient one night stop for a Portsmouth ferry the next day. Right from the friendly welcome from Gill, the unexpected parking permit, and the very clean accommodation, we were impressed. The breakfast was good (one vegetarian) (and I noticed the menu in other languages) and the advice for a waterfront tour, with map,...

We had a great stay at this marvellous B and B. Very good value, £75 for a twin room, excellent breakfast (cereal, coffee, daughter had a pot of hot chocolate all to herself, full English, toast) AND a 24 hour parking space which made it invaluable. Friendly host who showed us the room and its quirks, explained everything thoroughly. Really...

Our host welcomed us to her lovely bright house with fresh flowers everywhere. We were given a cup of tea in the lounge and were given details of places to eat and where to walk. The breakfast was superb.

We regularly stay at the Pier when we come to Pompey and it's a real gem. Gill is a friendly, attentive host and the breakfast is always excellent. The rooms are comfy and clean and while the bathrooms can be small they are more than adequate with a good shower. The location is also excellent, within 5 mins of the...

The B&B is amazing value for money. Gill is a lovely lady and makes you feel like home. Breakfast cooked by Gill is an added advantage. The place is centrally located with easy access to seaside and gunwharf quays. Would definetly recommend :-)

My mother was staying at this bed and breakfast and today invited me to join her for breakfast.. The landlady, Gill, made me extremely welcome and even let me use her parking permit on my car to save me parking fees. I cant praise the breakfast highly enough, all freshly cooked from very good quality ingredients. The premises were very...

We stayed for two nights. The owner, Gill, could not have been more friendly or helpful. A cosy set up governed by the original design of the building. Very clean throughout. Excellent breakfast.
