We had a two day midweek break in Portsmouth staying at the Pier. The host (Gill) and staff (Margo) were really welcoming and friendly. Breakfasts were brilliant - quality food, superbly cooked. Sausages and bacon were to die for!
Although an older style of property, the guest house is extremely clean throughout - probably the best we've seen for years. The bed in Room 3 was large and comfortable. There was a good selection and quantity of tea and coffee in the bedroom - so many places nowadays give you only the basic minimum - but not here.
The shower toiletries could have been improved but otherwise we find it impossible to find any other fault.
The property is ideally placed for visiting all the main attractions of Portsmouth. Just a short walk (10 - 20 mins) to Old Portsmouth, Gunwharf Quays, Station and the Dockyard areas (HMS Victory, Mary Rose etc) and 5 - 15 minutes in the other direction for the Southsea attractions (Southsea Common, the Castle, the D Day Exhibition, the Pier and beaches etc etc.). Public transport is also good and reasonably priced in this area.
Altogether a good stay, made better by excellent and very reasonably priced accomodation.
