“Okay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2011

We stayed here for two nights in June. The price was £55 a night for a double room which was good compared to others we looked at, and considering it was a weekend. The location is pretty good if you don't mind a bit of a walk to the sea, and there is free parking in the residential streets in the vicinity. The B&B is very well kept, clean and tidy, and charming with original Victorian features. Our room was a good size, although the en suite bathroom was small. It was quite difficult to get out of the shower with the bathroom door closed. The shower itself was a bit unreliable, at one point the water stopped completely before coming back freezing cold. However, the bathroom was very clean and looked to be recently decorated. The bed wasn't the most comfortable, and there was only one pillow per person. There was also a great deal of noise coming from drunk people shouting outside, and most people in our party didn't sleep very well because of this. It might be worth noting that this is a noisy area on weekend nights.
Breakfast was not bad, a good sized full english, although some of the items were lower quality than we would have liked and the selection of drinks was somewhat limited. The noticeboard in the breakfast room stated there was apple juice but when I asked for some I was told they didn't have any.
The customer service left a little to be desired. The people running the B&B were polite enough but the atmosphere was on the whole quite negative. I wouldn't want to be seen as attacking anyone personally, but at some points during the stay I did feel a little as though I was back at school.
On the whole, not bad but not perfect.

First time in a long time I have found a hotel where people actually will give a tinkers! Not huge bfast but good, any problems just let them know only a few probs. No shampoo or conditioner, nextdoor is a bit dodgy, and heating doesn't go on until late so if having a grunge day be aware it might be a bit nippy. Best of all there were a couple of noisy people who they evicted from their rooms the next day. All round not bad for the money and highly recommend them for people who don't expect the world! Personally would have preferred a bath then the shower, def thumbs up though!!

We received a very warm welcome and the owner and staff were friendly and helpful to meet all of our needs over our 3 night stay. Ordering breakfast, which was tasty, meant that there was no confusion as to personal tastes.

The stay was peaceful and relaxing.

I have stayed at Waverley Park Lodge three times (4 nights each time - twice just me and now with my spouse) and I can highly recommend this place. Excellent location and rooms and service as promised. Good value for the money! Great place for people who are active and need B&B for sleeping and quick bite in the morning.

“Double room” at the front is too small to get out of bed from either side – it’s hardly a single room! Window on front road is right next to a street light and noisy the thin curtain means it’s never dark. Paper thin wall means that you can hear EVERYTHING in the next room. “En suite” and you can’t sit on the loo properly. “Full English” = cereals, plastic orange juice (Sunny D), X1 sausage (no meat in it), X1 egg, X1 hash brown, X1 rasher of bacon, X1 spoon beans, X 1.5 slices of white bread, NO tomatoes, no mushrooms, no black pudding. All in all very disappointing.

The welcome we received reminded me of Del Boy and Rodney booking into the Hotel Bella Vista, if you are a fan you will know exactly what I mean. If not, I would say the hosts must have had a charisma bypass at birth!
Over night stay in double en-suite room. Probably the most uncomfortable bed I have ever slept in.... in fact it was that bad that I was unable to sleep! To add to the discomfort
there was only one very flat pillow per person. The towels supplied were small, hard and discoloured. The carpet in the room was stained. The website states breakfast by arrangement, in fact we were told 8.00 am or nothing. Breakfast choices were demanded (including drink) on arrival, we opted for full english, the ingredients used were very low quality the food was best left on the plate! We were told check out time is 10.00 am, at 9.45 am they were knocking on the door asking us when we were leaving as they wanted to get the room ready for the next guests. The highlight of the stay was leaving!

Our stay at the Waverley Lodge was fantastic. The rooms were clean, the staff were very friendly and helpful and the breakfast lovely. I would highly recommend this B n B to anyone visiting Southsea.
