“modern apartment”
Reviewed 3 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

person found this review helpful

Initially quite difficult to find carpark as the post code is different to the one advertised. I was emailed the correct code en route but as I was driving did not access email. A modern comfortable apartment with all appliances. Centrally located for trains, buses and ferries. I did have an issue with the bath as it is very deep but has no handrails to assist in getting in/out (I have a mobility problem)

“Modern apartment in great location”
Reviewed 18 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We stayed at this apartment for a week over the Easter holidays. The apartment is clean, modern and very central to all attractions. Despite being on the 12th floor it doesn’t feel very high and the lift is so quick you don’t notice how far up you have gone. The underground car park is well lit and secure. The apartment has a side view of the Solent and the bedrooms look onto the sports ground. It was lovely just watching the ferries coming in and out. There is a very large TV and WIFI, comfy sofa’s and a small dining table. The shower in the en-suite was lovely and powerful. Good wardrobe space in the master bedroom and a storage cupboard in the hallway. Washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets, toilet roll and hand wash was also supplied. The breakage deposit was also returned within the week of our return.

Some of the things that were not so good were poor directions from the owner. Sat Nav takes you right into the centre of Gunwharf to the shopping car park. Thankfully we realised this and rang the owner who then re-directed us and met us in the car park. If clear directions had been given we would have avoided the 45 minute queue into the centre. Towels in the bathrooms were very small and almost the size of a hand towel. Only 1 pillow on the beds and only a TV stand for furniture in the 2nd bedroom – but had no TV in there. The lighting was also very poor in that room and as it was the only place with a mirror to dry your hair it was quite difficult to see. There are no instructions on how to use oven/microwave but as we had access to the internet we were able to look the information up. Kitchen utensils were basic and no tea towels were supplier. This wasn’t a problem to us as we ate out every day. The apartment also has a very sensitive smoke alarm. After driving almost 300 miles a pint of milk in the fridge would have been a nice touch but not a problem as there is a Tesco Express right outside the front door.

Gunwharf Quays is a lovely area with nice shops, bars and restaurants. If the weather is good there is also lots of outdoor seating which gives it a continental feel. Spinnaker Tower is a must as the views are spectacular. We bought an All Attractions ticket for the Tower and the Dockyard which was very good value. Getting across to the Isle of Wight is easy as the car ferry and catamaran is only a 10 minute walk away, right next to The Hard bus and train stations. Old Portsmouth harbour is also about a 20 minute walk.

This isn’t a cheap stay and despite the apartment not having some of the things we like I would visit again as it is great having the sea, shops and restaurants right outside the front door. Portsmouth is also a very central location to visit other places on the south coast.

Spent a great week in March at this apartment. Apartment is very modern, clean and spacious (we were 2 adults and two small children). Ideally situated in Gunwharf and the apartment had everything we needed.
Fantastic views over Portsmouth from all rooms.
Highly recommend!

“Great apartment, great views!”
Reviewed 13 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

person found this review helpful

We decided to have a few days holiday, and were delighted to find this apartment, right in the heart of Gunwharf Quays, Portsmouth.
The apartment is very good, modern, clean and light, and the views from the windows and balcony are fantastic. Parking is good, the car park feels secure, with plenty of lighting, and the entry system to the tower is also secure.
Gunwharf Quays is one of our favourite holiday destinations in the UK, and we would certainly like to stay here again.

The apartment, location cleanliness and overall amenities was simply wonderful. Communication with the owner in terms of booking, picking up of keys, deposit refunded was very clear straight forward and professional
