I stayed on 11th August 2014 with the intention of being in Portsmouth for 4 days trying different hotels each night. So that I could choose one for the future. Duke of Buckingham was easily the best! As soon as you walk through the door you can feel the friendly atmosphere, on this particular day there was a man behind the reception. Full of smiles and very approachable. There is information at the desk about Portsmouth and very helpful guides. You are given a key to your room but to the building also. So you can come and go as you please. Reception closes at night but you are very reassuringly given a number to call if you have any problems. Parking was excellent, you are given a permit and can park in the area. I have mobility issues and found it easy to park at any time of the day. The room I stayed in was on the ground floor of the cottage just behind the hotel, toiletries were supplied, tea and coffee services, ensuite bathroom with one of the most powerful showers I have ever used! Beds were extremely comfortable, I was worried about being able to sleep due to the problems I have but the bed was exactly what I needed. Everywhere was clean and looked lovely. Quite honestly one of the nicest hotels I have been to and the fact it's practically smack bang in the middle of the city was amazing. I am going to be travelling to Portsmouth weekly in the future for post graduate study and there is no doubt I shall use Duke of Buckingham. I am a very happy customer indeed :)
