We stayed in Portsmouth for one night - as normally we try and pack everything in one day, and wanted to be near the Gunwharf. We found Fortitude Cottage by Googling B&Bs in Portsmouth and once we saw the reviews we thought go for it! On arrival Maggie was very welcoming and showed us to the 'Spinnaker View' building right next door to the Fortitude and gave us the ground floor double room - and a small bottle of sparkling wine! The Gunwarf is literally minutes walk away (follow the 'millennium chain walk' that is carved into the pavement) and the sea is right outside the door - we loved watching all the boats coming into the harbour! The comfy bed meant a good-night's sleep and breakfast cooked by Mike was delicious (they appear to have an award for it which we saw in the breakfast room!) Afterwards we strolled along the promenade in the sunshine down to Clarence Pier and enjoyed the sea breeze. Then it was time to go and so bade a fond farewell......but we will definately be returning!
