Owners Paul and Julie always very helpful. Apartment is very comfortable and beautifully furnished. Everything you need is there. Well stocked kitchen, dishwasher is great! Wonderful views across the Solent and out to sea. This was our second stay in this apartment and we hope to return in the future. Easy walking to Swimming Pool, boating lake, and Southsea Common....

As a family run business, we pride ourselves on the personal and effeceint service we provide. We want to ensure that our guests are comfortable and will return!<BR><BR>Our apartment 'The Berkeley', was a former grand and popular hotel in the heart of Southsea. This apartment is situated on the upper ground floor on the corner of the Berkeley building, benefitting from double aspect views of the solent and Southsea Pier.

You will be walking distance away from the restaurants, shops and places of interest, and a stones throw away from the sea.<BR><BR>Fresh flowers , tea, coffee and fresh milk will be available on arrival .
