We stayed for 3 nights here on a recent trip to Portsmouth. On booking, the staff were extremely helpful, and recommended Room 2, which is a ground floor room, as I have mobility problems and there is no lift. On arrival, we were offered a welcome drink - either soft or alcoholic and shown to our delightful room. The complimentary toiletries were of a high standard and plenty of towels were provided. The king size bed & duvet were extremely comfortable - as were the pillows - often a problem in hotels.Both Louise and Amber took time out to chat and offer helpful suggestions for our visit and were far and away better than most hotel staff elsewhere. But the jewel in the crown of this delightful hotel has to be the breakfasts. Coffee was plentiful and freshly brewed, and although cold meats, cheese, cereals and fruit were laid out on the side, each breakfast was individually tailored to suit and cooked accordingly. The scrambled egg was fresh from the saucepan, not hard & curling & poached eggs, again freshly cooked. The toast was excellent as it is made fresh each day. We had a selection of white, wholemeal and apricot bread which was fabulous, as was the honey bread on our last day. I still like the apricot best! All in all, I would recommend this hotel, which is an adults only establishment to anyone, who likes a well situated, small, quiet hotel, with a lounge & bar facility and very personable staff. We shall certainly stay there on our next visit to Portsmouth.
