Big warm welcome from Eileen, with a lovely tea tray on arrival. Stayed in the Golden Sands room, to the front of the house. Based in a quiet residential area (no problems at all), we used it as a base for visiting all the Naval Museums including The Mary Rose and Marines Museum. Eileen has such a great local knowledge, suggesting places to eat and local amenities. The room was really clean and the white towels plentiful, very soft and fluffy. Very comfy superking bed and large shower room. Given a tea tray everyday, with each time Eileen providing us with a new sweet treat, from cake to lovely biscuits. What was a really great touch was having a fridge upstairs,close to our room, so we could put in food/drink etc if we ate out during the day and fancied a night in. Breakfast was great, her whisky porridge should be eaten to be believed! Other half enjoyed very good full English with good quality sausages and bacon. Good selection of fresh fruits, yoghurt and cereals, and breads to toast. I cannot speak highly enough of the owners, in particular Eileen's attitude towards her customers, and would go as far as classing her as a new found friend. If you want an independent B&B, putting money into the local businesses of Portsmouth, then I cannot recommend this establishment highly enough. However, if you want a "big business corporate" take, on overnight stays and breakfast, with the same style rooms and food, wherever you go in the UK, then book another venue and leave this excellent one to us please!!
