I am from the Portsmouth area and know many of the hotels but on the way from Kent I was ringing around and couldn't find anywhere to accommodate myself, my wife and our 8 year old daughter. When I rang the Cavendish, I felt at home just from the phone call! Jean is the lovely host and even though she didn't have a family room she rang me back and offered to pop a mattress down for my daughter.

When we got to the Cavendish Lodge, we were greeted by Jean and went in to a gorgeously decorated and personalised place to stay. My daughter loved the 2 cats, Dolly and Lou-Lou (they were no trouble at all by the way!)

The room was just perfect, impeccably clean and with everything you could wish for. I honestly do not understand why anyone would want to stay in a hotel chain when you can stay in a lovely place like this.

After going out for bowling and a meal we came back around 10 to find the real log fire stoked up in the front room and enjoyed a wee snifter of brandy, a great chat with Jean and a read, then up the wooden hill to Bedfordshire!

After a fab night sleep I am in bed typing this looking forward to breakfast! We were made to feel so at home and will definitely stay again.

Thank you Jean and we wish you every success for the future! Warmest regards, Corrina, Safire and Steven.

Cavendish Lodge was an excellent choice as it was within walking distance from most Portsmouth attractions ( Aquarium, HMS Victory, Mary Rose Museum..etc ). The bed was really comfortable and the bathroom was huge. There is tea and coffee in the room. Free parking on the roadside. Lovely breakfast and the host was very nice and helpful. We will recommend Cavendish Lodge to our friends and we'll stay there again in the future.

What a fantastic B&B!!

The Cavendish Lodge has everything you would wish for from a B&B and delivers so much more than you expect.

Firstly i will stop calling the Cavendish Lodge a B&B as it offers a level of service and comfort that many Hotels can only aspire to acheive.

Jean and John are the perfect hosts and could not be more accomodating, they provide the personal feeling and touches that you only get from a small, privately run establishment. The Cavendish has three rooms and based on our room they are beautifully appointed, maintained and are immacualtely cleaned. There is a gorgeous reception room for guests to use and relax in alongside a lovely dining room where your breakfast is served. Breakfast constituted of many options covering all tastes and dietry requirements, the coffee was fresh and free flowing and we didn't want to leave!!

The Cavendish has made finding future accomodation in the area very very simple, there will be only one choice for us in the future - highly recommended.

Cavendish Lodge is a delight.
It is a small boutique hotel that wants for nothing. Furnishings, bedrooms, ambience is all first class.
Breakfast was perfect, yogurt and fruit followed by scrambled egg and smoked salmon. lashings of hot coffee and the morning papers .Just what was required as my son was moving into university halls. Jean and John could not have been more helpful .They booked taxis ,restaurants and at the end of our weekend they even took us to the railway station.
I would like to thank them for making what could have been a very stressful weekend very easy.
I would recommend this place wholeheartedly
