              I was greeted very warmly by mike, with a friendly smile and he was more than happy to help throughout the whole stay, the room was also beautifull

              the design of the rooms, a small and friendly hotel and a good location

              8.8

              It is quiet and beautiful, the room was huge and confortable. I was travelling from Madrid to Dublin, I needed a hotel for 1 night after leaving the ferry, but I could have been for 3 or 4 nights if I had known how nice was the city and the hotel.

            • Group of friends
              5.0

              Hotel double booked us - and they made it feel like it was our problem. They did not go out of their way to make our party of 7 feel comfortable. I think they take the word 'boutique' to literally - rooms very small but then we were reminded we were not paying for the best!Wouldnt stay again as felt the owners lack knowledge of hotel management

              It needed to be cleaned properly, Rooms far to small and they are playing with the word boutique - basically the hotel has small rooms and a very small dining area and they are trying to cram everything in.

            • Older travelers
              5.8

              Location within the city, access to places of interest. The decor and fittings were attractive and of a good standardand the bed was extremely comfortable with quality linen, pillows, duvet etc.The dinining room was light and airy, well-organised and welcoming. The staff were helpful in giving directions to local attractions and showed an interest in our activities.

              Rather disappointing. The room was smaller than we would have expected, positioned on the ground floor with two large windows, it lacked privacy from other guests coming and going. There was very little room to move about and insuficient storage for personal belongings. Provision of towels, bathroom necessities and tea etc. was not of the standard we would expect from this type of hotel.

            • Older travelers
              8.2

              We stayed two nights, the room was very stylish and comfortable. The bathroom was big and there was toiletries were wonderful. The breakkfast was good with quatility produce. Overall a good quality hotel and would stay there again.

              The location was great for the Portsmouth ferry. I am definately staying at this hotel next time I cross the channel via Portsmouth. I will also book or recommend the hotel for my customer'S.

              Rooms are clean and of a high standard

              Would have been nice if private parking was available as opposed to street. I do not really like the big head, fixed showers.

              10.0

              Staff were very helpful and friendly, room was well decorated and very clean. Accommodated our children well too.

              Breakfast was lovely but would have preferred cooked english breakfast which sadly was not included in the rate.

            • Older travelers
              8.2

              Just so peaceful and quiet and quite intimate. Nice change to stay somewhere that is samll and more personal. In an ideal spot. There was always somebody available if needed to ask anything. Came away feeling completely relaxed which is what we wanted out of this break.

            • Family with children
              7.4

              Close to beach, restaurants, corner store, pubs. Friendly staff, nice breakfast. Highchairs available. Free use of travel cot. Comfortable room.

              Room was clean.. however shower was not. More detail to cleanliness.

              The Staff were welcoming on our arrival. The rooms were spotlessly clean and comfortable. The breakfast was excellent and plentiful. The location is only a stone's throw away from the sea. The street was quiet and safe.Very good quality.

            • Older travelers
              9.6

              The hotel was ideally situated for a short break enjoying Portsmouth and Southsea, its sea front and maritime history. The room was very nice, quiet and relaxing. The staff were very helpful. We would strongly recommend this hotel and will definitely go back in the future.
