This Hotel pretends to be what it is not. Our room was small, badly ventilated, tiny bathroom and nothing like the photo on the website Breakfast was bearable but in a small, dark space The drinks area was found after battling through overgrown flowers and when we got there the tables and chairs were dirty and looked like no-one had...

We're a family of four that stayed in a good-sized family room on the top floor. We all loved it! Nicely decorated with warm colours and quality furniture. In addition to the bathroom there was a in-room bathtub- fun for the children😄 Really nice hosts as well. The Southsea in Portsmouth is really a nice area to stay in- the... More

Stayed for one night. Extremely helpful staff could not do enough for us. Allowed us to park our classic car right outside the door. The room was very clean and well decorated but really very small . We did not get to enjoy the inclusive breakfast as the ferry was early morning. The did however provide us with an early... More

Great little hotel which is clean, modern and has excellent customer service. Prices are reasonable and the breakfast very good. Rooms clean and plenty of space. Brings new meaning to B&B. Cost about £100 a night for a double room including top breakfast and much better than a Premier Inn I can assure you. We arrived very late at night... More

Location is central to everything Portsmouth has to offer. Room was spotless and could not fault it. Having access to our own garden was a bonus. Staff were so friendly and helped us with our bags and pressies we had bought to the car when leaving. Also breakfast waitress was lovely, so helpful. Am staying again in October, great value...

When we pulled up outside the hotel we initially thought it was a B&B rather than a Boutique Hotel but how wrong we were. This is an old semi-detached house that internally has been transformed into a modern hotel. The hall reception was bright and airy and we were greeted by a very friendly member of staff and this was... More

Lovely hotel. Friendly greeting and offered a free upgraded room on arrival. Room was lovely. Only issue was that we decided to eat at the sister restaurant about 10 mins walk away. Although the food there was superb there were a few issues with the service at the restaurant where the wait for ordered food and drinks was unacceptable. Still... More

Thank you for your review and kind comments - we are pleased you were offered a free upgrade and liked the room. We are sorry that you had to wait for food in the restaurant and this has subsequently clouded your review on our hotel page but will certainly be feeding your comments back to the restaurant to assist them...

We stayed here pre Goodwood as its only a short distance from venue. Spotlessly clean, amazing decor, great colour schemes and wallpapers throughout.

We stayed here over May half term with our grandchildren in their family room (#10) and enjoyed it so much that we've booked again. It's near the Canoe Lake and a short walk past that to the promenade. The number 1 bus passes the door taking one to other attractions, restaurants, shops.
