“Great little place”
Reviewed 26 July 2012

After spending hours surfing the net on various sites to try and find a hotel/bed and breakfast in Portsmouth with guaranteed and secure parking, I found Stattons on booking.com and quickly booked the last room available for three nights. We decided to spend a mini-break in Portsmouth on-route from our holiday in the South West as wanted to venture around the Historic Dockyard and Gunwharf Quays so this boutique hotel was ideally situated.

Tucked away in one of Southsea's side streets, Stattons is a lovely Victorian building which has been sympathetically decorated throughout with a funky but classical cosmopolitan theme without spoiling the original features of the building. We had room 6, an executive double which was spotlessly clean, bathroom although small, again, was immaculate, complete with a shower and separate hair washing removable shower head and a selection of Duck Island toiletries. Great TV (which worked) and with a good choice of Sky channels.

Breakfast was continental which was ideal for me - lovely selection of juices, cereals and fresh fruit with the tastiest natural yoghurt I had in a long time (Stattons, where do you source this from??) However, you do have to pay extra if you wish a cooked breakfast which we weren't aware of but this wasn't a problem. I do feel cooked breakfasts should be included with B&B price, particularly when you are paying in the region of £100 per night.

This aside, the breakfasts were lovely, plenty of toast and a decent pot of strong tea. Staff were attentive, friendly and helpful. Evening meals are not provided here but there are plenty of good restaurants and bistros a short walk away. Stattons will book you a taxi if you wish to travel into the city or Gunwharf Quays for a meal. Word of advice: best to use the taxi firm the hotel books with for return journeys too as we found some others on the rank outside the Quays charged considerably more. A 10 min walk away, I can recommend the Greek Taverna called Steki which is in Southsea, very reasonably priced with good portions and authentic cuisine.

There is a little bar in Stattons where you can chill out with a glass of wine pre-dinner or something stronger afterwards! There is an excellent selection of drinks which were in-expensive and it was nice to come back here and have a nightcap before putting your head down.

We had a lovely, relaxing four days here with plenty to see and do in Portsmouth, especially those with an interest in naval history and nautical activities. Gunwharf Quays is great for shopaholics and foodies. There's a lovely walk along the seafront with some excellent pubs tucked away with fabulous views overlooking the main harbour entrance.

We would definitely return to Stattons again - good location and luxurious comfort.

This is the second time i have used this side street boutique style hotel just off the main promenade of Southsea - Portsmouth and it is a hidden gem.
After being shown to my room which was very well decorated and appointed i returned to the lounge area where i was able to check my emails and surf the net via the free WIFI.
Overall a good nights sleep in a very comfy double bed, with a complimentary continental breakfast , a very friendly hotelier, and a good location makes this a very good choice for a business - leisure break.
Will definatley use them again

We chose to stay at Stattons after reading rave reviews. We were nice and close to the seafront as we wanted to catch a glimpse of the olympic torch. The area is beautiful and rooms tastefully decorated. My husband is very fussy and even he enjoyed the breakfast, with nicely warmed croissants and a marvellous choice of preserves. Next time there is another event in Portsmouth, we will certainly stay there again.

Visited this hotel last summer; again had a very comfortable stay despite the weather. Glad to say standards are still as high & service is impeccable.

Would not hesitate to stay again next year.

The Strattons describes itself as ‘The Newest and most luxurious boutique Hotel Portsmouth & Southsea has to offer’ and that is exactly what it is!!

I live in Portsmouth and wanted to treat my partner to a ‘first class’ night away in the area. Rather than stay in standard accommodation that all the bigger corporate Hotel Chains offer, I did my research and was impressed by the numerous glowing reviews as well as the stylish looking pictures posted on this website.

We arrived at the hotel a little earlier than expected and was greeted by the hotels Manager, Kevin. He was extremely friendly and had our room (No.9) ready and waiting.

Not only was the decor to an extremely high standard, the room & bathroom were clean and wonderfully luxurious. The shower in particular was one of the best I have had!!

After an enjoyable night’s sleep we awoke the next morning to a delicious cooked breakfast
in the hotels bar / dining area.

The staff were as helpful & friendly as Kevin was on the previous day making sure all our needs were covered.

We left later that morning feeling relaxed and satisfied that we had just experienced a night away that was better than we could have expected.

In Summary, easily one of the best (if not the best) hotel stays we have ever had.
If you are looking to get away from it all and want to stay in a high class boutique hotel that costs a lot less than it looks then this is the place for you. You will not be disappointed!!

Recently stayed at this hotel after a wedding held on Southsea seafront, was a ideal location. found the rooms to be clean, very well decorated and the staff were all friendly. Can't fault this hotel for anything and would recommend the scrambled egg and salmon bagel in the morning
