Abbey Lodge
Ranked #32 of 35 Portsmouth B&B and Inns
Reviewed November 19, 2008

The Abbey Lodge generally could do with a bit of a sprucing up. The decor is dated and starting to get run down. There is only on street parking which can be a bit of a problem. The breakfast was very good with a good choice of menu. The area does look a bit shady but there are plenty of pubs and restaurants within a five minute walk.

We have just returned from a one night stay at Abbey Lodge, Waverley Rd, Portsmouth. On booking with the guest hotel directly I was asked for credit card details including 3 digit security number, name and full address. Although this is common practice with some establishments, it prompted me to speak with my bank who agreed this was a touch OTT. On arrival at the B&B the landlady seemed quite friendly albeit a little school-marmish. We were shown to our room, a double ensuite and would say that the room is extremely dated, the en-suite is very small with barely enough room to move about in and the bed is uncomfortable. The area around Abbey Lodge is a student area and is noisy at night, even midweek when we were there! The guest house is noisy; you can hear everything going on in the house including the landladys yapping dogs and you can smell and hear the breakfast being cooked, not that we had a chance to sample as we both made a mistake with the breakfast time. We arrived downstairs and rang the attendance bell at 0905am, unfortunately breakfast was over at 0900 but checkout was at 1000am. I politely acknowledged our mistake and asked if the landlady could rustle up a bacon sandwich or something we could take away. We were firmly informed that breakfast finished at 0900 and it would take 20 mins to warm everything up. Not even an offer of some toast or cereal! That said, given the dogs were running about in the kitchen, this does raise the question of kitchen hygiene. Our advice, stay away unless you want to feel like you are doing th e landlady a favour and do not believe in customer satisfaction! There are plenty of other £55 per night , relaxing places to stay in Portsmouth.
