“Friendly, helpful host and great room”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

Our host was friendly and helpful on arrival. He was informative when chatting at breakfast.

The room was spacious and comfortable. The en suite was a little on the small side - but no smaller then most B&Bs en suites.
Being able to park for free was great. We left the car and walked to the historic dockyard (about 30 minutes) and Southsea. Breakfast was excellent.

Spent one night here. Both myself and my father were happy with service and rooms, happy enough that we would stay again and recommend to friends. Great value for money as well. The bathrooms were clean with toiletries etc provided, sheets on the bed were fresh and pressed, the breakfast was generous and quickly cooked for us. The results: a good night's sleep and a great start to the following day. Many thanks to you both.
day.

Wonderful friendly greeting on our arrival. Very comfortable bed and room. Great 20 minute walk past shops and restaurants for those heading off to Gunwharff. Most import was the parking. All the local information including cab numbers. Would recommend to stay

Dear lesleyannefinlayson,

Thank you for the lovely review. Since the council introduced a residents parking scheme, parking has been so much easier in our area. As a member of the tourist board they have given us parking permits for our guests for the duration of the stay.
Hope to meet you again.

David

Very nice and friendly hotel. Ideal for a stop over in the area. Great breakfast and very friendly. Also very comfortable slept very well. Very easy to find once we got off the bus. And if you are unsure what to do in the evening only a small walk to the main pub section of Southsea. And a 20 minute walk to the beach.

Dear jdogg1982

Thank you for the lovely review. As I have probably mentioned before regarding the breakfast of which we are proud of our suppliers. The meat is from Buckwells a prize winning local butcher and the pork for his sausages ,are from a farm at Liss near Portsmouth. Depending on season and availability the tomatoes are home grown while when we are not using hash browns we use Maris Piper for the potatoes in the breakfast. We hope you come again.

Dear Loraine C
Thank you for giving such a lovely review. It was lovely to see you again; most of our guests are repeat visitors and probably reflects on the lack of reviews as people have been so many times. We are now getting 2nd generation visitors. We love seeing guests coming again as it makes running a B&B so enjoyable and satisfying.
Please come again.

Stayed here in September for 1 night. Ou room was on the ground floor at the front of the house. Very good nights sleep with no noices from the road. The room was spacious and very clean, the en suite shower was small but acceptable. Our room keys were left in the outside key safe which is a good idea. On arrival the owner made us very welcome and gave us a permit for on road free parking. Breakfast was served in the basement, was cooked from locally sourced produce and was excellent. All in all I think this B&B is very good value for money and is centrally located for Southsea and Portsmouth attractions. Well recommended.

Dear Tom M

What a lovely review and thank you for it. Although we are not in a side road the quality double glazing is very effective at keeping out external sounds. Together with the ample hotel quality curtains with the blackout lining and fire retardant add to the cosiness of our rooms. As an aside when we had the old sash windows years ago, during repainting them the original colour on the frame was dark green which our present windows now reflect that today. Hoping to see you again.
