We prefer smaller, boutique hotels and we were so delighted to spend two nights at this hotel. Josh and his team really get the idea of hospitality- you feel welcomed even before you arrive! With this gem, we won't be staying at any of the big name hotels in Portsmouth again! Highly recommended!

My wife and I stayed here for a weekend in July which sold out after our reservation. They offer free parking in the back and they are about a 10 minute walk to downtown, depending on your pace. The hotel is well decorated with unique touches such as ball mason jars used on the light fixtures in the hallway. Their...

Service was wonderful beginning with a warm welcome from a number of people at the front desk and office (sorry, I don't remember names). The complimentary continental breakfast was lovely - a bit more unusual than the typical carb heavy continental breakfast. And the room (312) was perfect! Light and bright, spacious, good storage, unbelievably comfortable bed and soft sheets...

Very nice hotel. Yes, they have air conditioning (critical this week in late July 2016). Breakfast is a bit on the skimpy side . . . sort of "breakfast tapas" (small plates of various breakfast foods). I guess you could keep going back until full, but you begin to feel a bit odd doing so. The items were delicious, just...

We stayed at the Hotel Portsmouth for 2 nights, we could not have asked for a better place. The location is perfect, a short walk to Prescott Park and the waterfront. The hotel itself is beautiful, and well maintained. It also included free parking and a wonderful continental breakfast. Staff was wonderful, especially Josh. I don't think I'd stay anywhere...

We travel a good amount and were absolutely delighted to find this hotel had availability when we went through Portsmouth, NH. The rooms are very unique. The staff was absolutely wonderful, and the breakfast was the best "continental" breakfast I've had in years. The entire experience made me wish these hotels were all over the US because it would definitely...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here at The Hotel Portsmouth during the 4th of July holiday. This town and lovely hotel truly made us feel welcome. The rooms were updated with a boutique modern touch. Our room was tucked away in a cove which helped with other guest noise. We enjoyed our stay and would most definitely stay here again...

I stayed at this hotel for several weeks while on business in New Hampshire. It was such a nice break to stay in a boutique style hotel (instead of the cookie cutter big chain hotels). I loved the mid-century style furnishings in all the rooms! I stayed in both the front (original house) and back (added on mid-1900's) rooms. I...

We only spent 1 night here, but it was lovely. The hotel was charming, the people were very friendly and attentive and the hotel was within walking distance of everything in Portsmouth. Off-street parking was nice, and the blueberry smoothies for breakfast were delicious. I would come back again!

My boyfriend and I booked a room for two nights during the long July 4th weekend. Upon arrival to the lovely Hotel Portsmouth we were greeted by Patrick and Lindsay, who showed us around the hotel (ie. Where we could fill our water bottles, get coffee and breakfast, etc) and also were valuable resources during our stay, recommending several good...
