The best B&B that I have been to. You get a very warm welcome. The room is comfortable and charming. The information given about your stay and Portsmouth is good. The bed gives a good nights sleep. The communal rooms are lovely. The breakfast is excellent.

This little gem is a must if you are in Portsmouth. Gill is a lovely lady and the rooms are spotless and fresh. Breakfast is amazing, so much to eat and beautifully cooked. Able to leave our car where it was for the duration of our stay as bus stop right outside. Thank you Gill, we will be back, again!!!

This B & B is the best one I have stayed in for many years. Cleanliness was second to none. The décor was vintage shabby chic and the breakfast was to die for. Home made vanilla yogurt followed by cereal, fresh fruit of your choice and a full English breakfast. It wasn't just the fabulous breakfast but also the attention...

Warm welcome from charming owner/hostess Gill; very clean, comfortable, well-lit room. Lighting over mirror by wash-hand basin was excellent. Fresh towels and face-cloths provided, all to exemplary standard. We didn't sample breakfast as we had very early start to catch ferry.

This B&B is centrally located so most attractions( the beach, Gunwarf and historic dockyard) are a short walk away. You sooo need to try the pie and vinyl cafe just round the corner but if your looking for a pub try The hole in the wall and NOT the barley mo. We stayed in room 5 and found the ensuite...

Stayed here for an overnight stay to visit the Dockyard. A very friendly greeting and a parking permit to allow us to park for free whilst visiting. The room was clean and the bed comfortable, the breakfast was very good with top quality ingredients. I would recommend this Bed and Breakfast to anyone.

This is the perfect place to stay for a trip to Pompey. Only a 5 minute walk into town or the beach. The owner was very welcoming and the place was spotless with a great ambience. A wonderful Full English to top it off in the morning. Great value.

Short walks: From Station, from Historic Trail on seafont at Clarence Pier, from City Centre, from Gunwharf Quays (Shopping?). Clean, comfortable, good breakfast and despite being on a bus route reasonably quiet. Good value accomodation.
