This is a difficult review to write as one half of me want's to write the glowing review that Mike and Maggie so rightly deserve and the the other half of me wants to keep it a secret, so that we can keep it all to ourselves.
We were lucky enough to have 3 nights in room 5. Wonderfully clean, modern décor, air con and a brilliant shower. The rooms are serviced daily, again to a high standard with nice little touches.
It's a superb location for exploring Portsmouth,. I was lucky, as I brought my own Pompey girl with me, but strangers will have no difficulty at all accessing all the attractions. There's free parking just a few steps across the road, which is very handy as we didn't use the car all the time we were there. Everything was just a short walk away.
Oh breakfast!!! We loved the dining room, the view and of course the food. Myself and J, heartily recommend the smoked salmon and scrambled eggs.
What really makes this place is Mike and Maggie and their attention to detail. They have created a B&B that it is a joy to visit.
There is only one real problem with Fortitude Cottage and that's leaving it.
