“Beautiful apartment in awesome location”

When I was searching for a UK apartment, I cam across the Vulcan Building. Having been to Gunwharf Quays (shopping/dining complex on the coast), the location was very appealing. As it turned out, the location was even better than expected and the apartment itself was a delight. It was fully equipped and the beds were very comfortable. Having two bathrooms (one en suite) was very nice. As you step out the front door, you are in Gunwharf Quays with restaurants, bars and shops all to hand. A small supermarket provided any needs we had. In the same building is the Lock Fyne restaurant, which was excellent (see separate review). We were on the 2nd fllor (1st floor for Brits) and an elevator is available. Although it was quite expensive for a week, it was location, location, location.

“what a find!”
Reviewed 6 April 2012 for a stay in April 2012

Having spent many hours trying to find somewhere to stay for 3 nights only during school holidays was hard - then found this "little gem". The owners are so welcoming and the apartment is spotlessly clean and in the most central of locations. Once settled no car was needed for our 3 nights as everything is on the doorstep.
The owners even put in an extra bed as our 2 children 8 and 10 years would never have got on sharing a bed - this worked really well and made our stay even more relaxing.
As the apartment is situated to the rear of the property we were not disturbed by any late night noise - although this did mean there is no view of the sea - this really is not an issue as you just step outside directly onto Gunwarf quays for the views.
We walked past some of the other properties i had viewed when trying to find somewhere to stay and our unanimous family verdict was that none of the others would have been as fantastic a base as this.
Thankyou Neeraj and Joanne - we will be recommending you to all friends and family and hope to return again one day.

“fabulously appointed and nicely done”
Reviewed 29 July 2011 for a stay in May 2011

the apartment is located right in the centre of Gunwharf Quays, right next to the shops and restaurants (but no noise from them at night). The building is stunning and the apartment has lovely high ceilings with original feature brick walls and windows. Owner very friendly and helpful and check in easy, check out slightly delayed as owner had to return from B&Q :@) we stay in Portsmouth\Southsea fairly regularly and this was a cheaper option than the hotel we normally stay in and much nicer. Would stay here again
