If you want a place to stay in Portmouth, you cannot go wrong with the Retreat guest house!!
Came to Portsmouth to go to the Victorian Christmas Market, looked at a number of hotels and plumped for the Retreat, so pleased I did. The rooms are exactly as pictured, the bed was comfy, the area was quiet, but close enough to walk to The Quays and dockyard.
Breakfast was lovely, the house is gorgeous, Sian and Mark are great hosts. I wholeheartedly recommend The Retreat as a place to stay. Enjoy - we did!
