First Class Hotel & Breakfast

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 3 Mar 2023
Welcoming reception staff, beautifully appointed and spacious bedrooms and a first class breakfast. What is there not to like in this lovely hotel just back from the seafront in Southsea. Good value too.

    Checked in for four nights to be met by an extremely helpful and efficient receptionist. We were given a room (2) in the building next to reception which had only just been refurbished. It was a large room with separate bathroom containing bath and cubicle shower. All the fittings were of high quality and the bedroom decoration very smart and 2 comfy chair - but could have done with a little side table to make it perfect! The carpet had only been down a few days and was thick and luxurious. Breakfast was exceptional in both choice and quality and a little different to the norm.

    Location excellent for local buses into Portsmouth and beyond and a walk (10 mins) to an infinite number of eating places - choice was amazing! Parking was on the street outside but we were provided with a permit for the duration of our stay, and we managed to park opposite the hotel. We would be happy to stay here again.

    Room tip: Would try to get a room with more natural light (though the lighting was fine for evening we faced onto another building limiting the light.

    Overall enjoyable.

    Excellent hôtel! We were nicely welcome by the staff. The room was very cosy.
    The hotel is well located, near the sea and not far from the town.

    The breakfast is excellent, made from fresh ingredients. The Florence breakfast was great.

    We enjoyed our stay.

    Treated my wife to a night away as a late Christmas present. This little boutique hotel was very pleasant with a friendly welcome and a lovely quiet, relaxed atmosphere. Our room was decorated very stylishly and was spotlessly clean. Only slight niggles were a tad of mould above the lovely bathroom and torn net curtains in the bedroom. The bed was extremely comfy and we both agreed that Breakfast was one of the tastiest we had ever had in a beautiful dining area. Would definitely return.

    Many thanks for choosing us for your post-Christmas getaway, it was a pleasure to meet you both

    We are so pleased you liked the room and found everything clean and comfortable and enjoyed breakfast time.

    Thank you for letting us know via your reviews about the bathroom ceiling, this has now been addressed urgently as it was caused by a leak that was not something we were aware of. We appreciate you drawing our attention to it and the net curtain we will be replacing asap. We apologise for not picking up these issues in advance of your stay.

    We hope to see you again on another occasion.
