High standard maintained from our last visit. Staff very considerate and helpful. Due to Ferry and weather conditions we had to readjust bookings with no problems at all. Deserves to be fully booked. We will certainly use the Ferry House Lodge again

Warm welcome from Kate, the Jack of all trades, who seems to have everything covered with great efficiency and a 'can do' attitude. She also cooks a mean breakfast in no time at all. The room was spacious, tastefully decorated and extremely clean made me feel very comfortable. Whilst this is not the most salubrious part of Portsmouth, this is an excellent place to stay with heaps of parking.

Room Tip: Room number 9 was a ideal for one person or couple.

Superb weekend spent at the Ferry House Lodge. The new owners have completed a total refurbishment so it was very fresh and clean whilst being welcoming. The rooms are cosy but have everything in them that is needed for a comfortable stay and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was wonderful, a choice of pastries, cereals, fresh fruit and a cooked breakfast which was totally amazing.
Our weekend was to shop and take a trip down memory lane and the Ferry House Lodge was situated ideally for this, it is just a 10 minute walk from the city centre and approx. 20 minutes from the historic dockyard and Gunwharf Quay. The ferry port is opposite so the Ferry House Lodge is very convenient for an overnight stay. We would like to return to Portsmouth again soon and we both agreed we would definitely stay at the Ferry House Lodge.

We have just spent two nights at the Ferry House Lodge and we can say that from the moment you arrive the staff are very friendly and helpful. The whole place was very clean, and has been beautifully refurbished. It is very easy to find and we liked the fact that there is plenty of off road parking right out side. The Lodge is close to a main road but there is no traffic noise. The breakfast was outstanding and freshly cooked. The location is ideal for the shopping centre, Gunwharf shops and Portsmouth Historic Dockyard. If we returned back to Portsmouth we would certainly stay here again. We would recommend this place.

We had an excellent stay. Staff very friendly and helpful, rooms extremely clean, spacious and comfortable. Cooked breakfast was amazing. The owner has done a brilliant refurbishment!!
We travel to Portsmouth quite often to visit our daughter and have stayed in various hotels therefore can comment and say 'Would we stay again?......Most definitely!'

Very friendly run recently refurbished B&B/Hotel. Ideal place to get to most of Portsmouth's sites. ie Shopping at Gunwharf, Historic Dockyard with the Maryrose,Victory and HMS Warrior. Main town centre and ferry links to the continent. It is idealy placed at the end of the main motorway and easy to find with lots of off road parking. Very clean and tidy with helpful staff. Breakfast's where terrific and a great choice to start your day. I couldn't fault it and if i'm down in the area again it will be my first port of call. A1 with 5 stars.

We were given a very friendly welcome by the lady on reception, checked in then went to our room. We had booked a standard double room and were very surprised at the quality of the room and indeed the hotel as a whole. I understand it is undergoing refurbishment and have to say that it has all been done very tastefully and to a very high standard. The bed was very comfortable and there was plenty of tea and coffee in the room. I was concerned that there would be some traffic noise from the adjacent main road but you wouldn't know it was there and we had a good night's sleep. The breakfast was plentiful and delicious. We both had the full English which was as good as you can get anywhere especially the scrambled eggs which were properly freshly cooked, not just stuck in a microwave for five minutes.

If we are in Portsmouth again we would definitely stay here again and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to others. All in all, well done Ferry House Lodge. You made our short stay very special indeed.
