Upper Mount House Hotel
Ranked #8 of 35 Portsmouth B&B and Inns
Reviewed 6 August 2014

We stayed here one night and were extremely impressed with the caring attitude of the owner and staff when we fell ill, having picked up a bug from our little grandson.
We can't praise the staff highly enough, and would certainly return.

Stayed here as it was in a good central spot to where my daughter's university digs were situated. Nice big car park, interesting reception room and perfectly acceptable breakfast (although the fresh fruit was a bit sparce). We had a family room at the top of the hotel which was probably not one of the best rooms but it was fine. My husband did keep banging his head on the beams though and he isn't particularly tall. Bathroom was clean but dated. We all slept very well, the beds were comfortable, athough I was a bit shocked to see that the double bed's mattress was split open on one side and all the springs were visible. Lady who checked us in and the the man who checked us out (I think this was the owner) were both very welcoming. We would come back for just an overnight stay

lovely B and B, tucked away from the main shopping area. plenty of car parking space.spotlessly clean large room and very quiet. Lovely cooked breakfast. Ideally situated to explore Southsea, with the sea a short walk away and the shops just around the corner.Wayne was very friendly and helpful as was the lady who served breakfast.Nothing was too much trouble.

The owner Wayne was very welcoming and friendly, the room was very spacious and comfortable, pillows were very fluffy! The cooked breakfast every morning was delicious and hot, we especially liked the fact that the young waitress remembered our tea and coffee order each morning, the staff were very friendly and made us feel welcome. We will be returning to stay at Upper Mount house when we next visit Portsmouth. The hotel is ideally situated for exploring the area and has some excellent places to eat nearby.

Have spent a couple of nights here, the bedrooms are excellent, breakfast was very filling and the owner and staff very friendly. Go there and you won't be disappointed. Has parking on site which is great.

It is ideally located only a short walk from the seafront, restaurants and shops. It's set back from the road so it is lovely and quiet. The owner is very kind and friendly and advised us on things to do in the area. Our room was the small double with ensuite shower but it was fine for us. We were out most of the time anyway. It was clean and had the necessary amenities such as hairdryer, kettle with tea and coffee selection, free Wi-Fi and access to an iron and ironing board. Breakfast was nice. l loved the fresh fruit and kippers. However less oil used to fry with would have been ideal! Would definitely recommend Upper Mount. Very accomodating.

It's difficult to find a place that ticks all my boxes as I'm looking for somewhere that doesn't exist. I'm looking for somewhere that is cheap, clean, comfy and centrally located. This places near enough does that. The main plus point for me was it was so lovely and clean (having cleaned rental properties for years, I'm very fussy). As far as I'm concerned everywhere to stay in Pompey is expensive - so in comparison to everywhere else this is well priced. As I said it is spotlessly clean, a bit dated but not in a run down sort of way more in keeping with the house, just I prefer a more modern touch - but it would look out of place here. Everyone was very friendly, the girl taking the breakfast orders remembered your preferences, which was lovely. The food was good, not really a breakfast person but had poached egg and bacon and couldn't fault that. Would I come here again - most definitely. Highly reccommended

Room Tip: We had room no 15, which was very quiet at the rear of the property but it was quite small, but I...
