“Lovely house with amazing views over the harbour.”
Reviewed September 10, 2018 for a stay in August 2018

We had a very comfortable stay at Gunpowder Cottage, the house is well equipped and is located in a lovely peaceful location with wonderful views over the harbour. We really enjoyed taking the ferry over to Portsmouth - Gunwharf Quays is fab and surprisingly dog friendly! We also had some lovely walks along Hill Head beach and enjoyed a meal in the pub there - again both really dog friendly. The staff at Complete were very efficient with our booking and Steve who met us to show us around the property was really helpful.

“Great Waterfront Property”
Reviewed September 1, 2018 for a stay in July 2018

We had an absolutely fantastic time. This was our 2nd year down visiting family and we are looking to make this a regular annual visit so hopefully you will see us booking again for next year. I would say the property was well stocked, I could see you had put a new drying rack in the property with lots of pegs and even some washing tablets, which was great as came home with very little washing! The kitchen was well stocked and had everything we needed, it was good to have some basics there to help get us started, i.e. milk/tea/coffee etc and the salt/pepper & dishwasher tablets were also appreciated. Fantastic that you did a clean half way through, this was great as again helped make our holiday more relaxing. I cannot fault the property in anyway and the contact we had with Ken was brilliant. Keep doing what you are doing, what amazing properties and thank you! - Jackson, July/Aug 2018

“The property had everything we needed!”
Reviewed July 26, 2018 for a stay in July 2018

The property had everything we needed, it was clean and tidy with all rooms being used daily. The views are brilliant and the location was so convenient. We enjoyed time shopping and eating at Gunwharf Quays, with Ken being so helpful on local information. We can recommend The Victualler and Arty's as great places to eat and drink, near to the property, just over the footbridge. We loved the whole experience and cannot wait to return. - Emily, Jay, Josh, Aypril, Julie, Ian and Jessica - July 2018

“Christmas Holiday”
Reviewed January 1, 2018 for a stay in December 2017

We enjoyed our stay at Gunpowder Cottage very much, it was most enjoyable and we had a great Christmas. The booking process was very easy, helpful and straightforward, both online and by phone. The accommodation was lovely and extremely comfortable and had everything we needed for our Christmas break. We were sorry to leave when our week was over. I can't think of anything negative to say, only positive, we wouldn't hesitate to book accommodation through you again. - Alistair, Christmas 2017

“Very good, nicely finished accommodation, with great harbour view”
Reviewed September 25, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Everything was fine. Accommodations were excellent. Nice to have off street parking. Booking process and info was all fine, nothing but good to report. Hardway is a bit out of the way, but I am familiar with the area so no trouble getting around. Good to have the Co-op so close by, also the Jolly Roger pub. and the coffee shop/cafe at Explosion is really nice. Easy 20 min walk to Gosport High Street and ferry if weather is good. - Sept 2017
