Often used as a venue but shouldn't be ignored on a trip to Old Portsmouth. Good view of the harbour and neighbouring beaches, a picturesque place to sit.

Not sure of your budget but there are a couple of very nice B&Bs in Broad St really near the Square Tower or Holiday Inn is a short walk away which has a small gym & indoor pool.
