Great place close to everything. Breakfast is included but it's not your run of the mill hotel chain continental buffet, creative and delicious! Staff were friendly and helpful. I had a wonderful overnight stay to explore Portsmouth for a couple of days on my way to Acadia.

The shower is extra large and a huge claw foot soaker tub is available.The bed was a dream! Parking is available in back and everything... More

We stayed here for one night on a trip to Portsmouth. Beautiful hotel, friendly staff and lovey rooms equipped with everything you need. Only slight hesitation at giving 5 stars was the fact our room was opposite the breakfast room which was noisy from 6am. Other than that one room, I'm sure it would be fine! Would stay again but...

Big comfy beds and great service just a short walk from all of Portsmouth's attractions - what's not to like? We also had fab little tapas type breakfasts which made such a refreshing change from the norm.

The hotel did so much more than the standard in both of our visits. In our first visit, we needed communications support, far beyond the norm, to close a financial transaction. The hotel's staff really came through for us. During the second visit, we were traveling with dogs. The room set up, for people traveling with pets was the best... More

This is truly a grand Hotel, it is beautiful not only on the outside but the interior is fabulous. The hotel is situated a short 10 minute or less walk downtown. The rooms are beautifully decorated and the staff is friendly and informative. The breakfast in the morning is amazingly presented and the taste can not be beat. Thank you... More

I was very disappointed: 1) my room wasn't cleaned nor did anyone seem to be interested. 2) wifi in my room was erratic and frustrating 3) they should invest in decent sheets and towels- 4) the air-conditioner was loud and erratic- i slept poorly.

My wife and I wanted an escape for our 15th anniversary and chose to visit Portsmouth. We were hoping to find a place to stay that had all the conveniences and amenities of a large hotel but in a more boutique environment, and we found it at The Hotel Portsmouth. The staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating, the facilities beautiful,... More

The Hotel Portsmouth is a great hotel. The room was very clean and comfortable. It faced the back of the hotel which made it extra quite for sleeping at night. The hotel is within a 5 minute walk to the attractions in Portsmouth and very close to Prescott Park. The hotel also offers a very nice complimentary breakfast in addition... More
