“Fabulous!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Battery House is fabulous with everything thought of and taken care of. There are few things better than breakfast on the roof terrace in the sunshine. The views are great over to the Isle of Wight. There are nice places to eat and go for drinks locally and so many options for activities. We always have the best of times when we stay here.

“Perfect long weekend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Battery House. The house is gorgeous and the facilities are excellent. Everywhere is clean and tidy and the house starter pack was helpful. The house has a full kitchen and washing machine facilities which were perfect when staying a few days. The views from the house are exceptional and truly enhanced the enjoyment of our stay. The nice weather meant the roof terrace was perfect for watching all the boats. There were plenty of things to do during our stay including; visiting the Isle of Wight, the historic dockyards and of course enjoying all the shopping and food delights of Gunwharf. Cannot recommend this place enough!

“The Perfect Weekend Getaway - wish we had booked for the week!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We were looking for somewhere 8 of us could celebrate a milestone birthday just for a weekend... and we found the perfect place and we had a ball. The whole group were really impressed with the high standard of everything with in Battery house, from the touch sensitive bed side lamps, the villeroy & boch glassware, to the fully stocked drawers and cupboards.. Four bedrooms and four bathrooms… no queue to use the facilities… we each claimed our own. Along with the wonderful welcoming village feel of the area of old Portsmouth.

The weather was just perfect with all our meals taken up to the roof terrace, enjoying the front row seat and spectacular views of the busy trade of the port, with the odd treat of the cruise ships passing close by after leaving Southampton. We also did far less than we intended to, taking advantage of the wonderful base camp, with walks, shopping, people watching, interjected with the odd pub call being the main activities… but there is so much more for next time.
It was a treat to find just what was awaiting us… bread, milk, cereals every condiment you could desire. Also car parking included and Jacqui very kindly had a bottle of bubbly on ice for our arrival. We will return, and highly recommend this venue

“Heaven on Earth”

Perfect, we wouldn't have changed a thing. My four girlfriends and I spent a long weekend at Battery House and no one wanted to leave. We could have happily spent the whole weekend in the house and forgotten about the rest of what Portsmouth had to offer! The view from the lounge window was amazing and we never tired of watching the endless parade of boats that went right past the window. The house was equipped with everything we could have needed, the bedrooms and bathrooms were luxurious, and the outside roof terrace was its crowning glory. The house was very well positioned, plenty of restaurants and bars close by and the free easy parking was a bonus. We can't wait to go back again :-)

“Fanstatic views, brilliant location & luxurious house”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 March 2011 for a stay in March 2011

We stayed in Battery House for a special family gathering, it was everything it promised. The house is beautifully furnished, with a great relaxed feel. The bedrooms were comfortable and the kitchen well equiped. The roof terrace provides an extra special dimension to the house, with lots of possibilities for alfresco dining.
The location could not be better, right on the seafront. The views are wonderful, there is constantly something to watch; yachts, canoes, and all manner of ferries. The position in old Portsmouth, is close to a full range of attractions, entertainment, shopping and a full and varied range of place to eat and drink.
We would definately recommend Battery House and hope to stay there again in the future.

“One of the best weekends we've ever had”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2011 for a stay in February 2011

We stayed at Battery House for the weekend and left wishing we could buy the house! The location and views are spectacular. You feel as though you're right in the hustle and bustle of Old Portsmouth with everything on your doorstep but inside the house you enjoy it all in peace, quiet and privacy. We were blown away by the house and it's position. As well as the sheer dynamism of watching boats of every shape and size from the top floor living room, the roof terrace has almost a complete 360* view taking in the cathedral and forts as well as various seascapes. The kitchen is fantastic and made eating in a pleasure and the rooms and bathrooms were top notch, very comfortable. We had such an amazing time we didn't want to leave and we'll definitely be back. Thank you to the owners for being so helpful and giving us the opportunity to enjoy such a wonderful and unique experience.
