“A fantastic house - we all really enjoyed our stay here”
Reviewed May 7, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

A lovely house and beautifully presented in a nice area. Very clean with everything we needed for our stay. We particularly enjoyed the garden and the view watching the boats go by. We were very very lucky with the weather and was able to take a trip over to Gunwharf on the ferry which was a good day out. Complete themselves were very efficient and Laura was very welcoming. - The Johnson Family (April 2016)

“Great property, great position, perfect holiday location.”
Reviewed August 27, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This lovely town house is in a great position for sightseeing, with access to the Water bus just a few minutes away. The décor and equipment are all good with everything you need for cooking family meals. We enjoyed many breakfasts overlooking the lovely views of the harbour. A good location for travel to Portsmouth Historic Dockyard which has so much to offer for all ages. Be sure to buy the excellent value museum tickets.
We will be back! Everything from the booking to our welcome was all excellent, and any little problems were dealt with right away. We had a fabulous time, we would certainly recommend the property to others.

“Perfect for a family holiday, in a quiet and beautiful location”
Reviewed August 10, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

I can't fault anything at all regarding our stay at Powderkeg cottage. Everything, from first booking the stay until leaving yesterday, has been dealt with efficiently and professionally by every member of your staff with whom we have had contact. The cottage is very well equipped with everything that anyone would need, far superior to many of those we have stayed in previously. I will recommend your Company and those cottages, in particular, to friends we know who take similar holidays.

“Home from home, ideal for both business and pleasure.”
Reviewed February 23, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Overall a lovely house, very clean and homely, the property has everything you could possibly need. I was here on business but have already booked it for the summer, cant wait to relax outside in the sunshine. The property is in a great location, great for business and suitable for families to explore the local area and shop, the surrounding area is great for walks and running. And we found the staff and administration very friendly and easy to contact.

“Ideal stay for a family holiday”
Reviewed February 19, 2015 for a stay in May 2014
1
person found this review helpful

The instructions on how to get there were great and we were arrived in a timely fashion. The location was a lovely spot and easy access for the water bus and museums. The garden was very safe and secure ideal for a toddler and it meant we could enjoy the weather as well as the view. Bedrooms were very nice with clean sheets and comfy beds. There was a good amount of room although having both bathrooms as en suites meant that we had to be quite tolerant of each other. The kitchen was well equipped although it might have been nice to leave a few dishwasher tablets or warn us to bring some from home. But all in all we had a great time and it was the perfect option for us with a small child for a family wedding.

“Happy Stay”
Reviewed February 17, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We stayed at Powderkeg Cottage to prepare for my daughter's marriage on Valentine's Day. It was very comfortable, clean, stylish and with lots of thought having been given in to providing home from home comforts. And Fabulous Views !! We also had a full length mirror provided so my daughter could see her wedding dress and Laura the housekeeper brought us some of her own baking equipment for the wedding favours which was really much appreciated. The staff were very efficient and willing to help. Thank you - Carolyn Neal - February 2015
