We thoroughly enjoyed our time in the apartment. It was difficult for us to tear ourselves away from the dining table and breakfast bar to actually go out and see the sights. With the windows wide open we felt that we were part of the action in the harbour. We had taken binoculars and the owners had also thoughtfully provided a pair so we could really see what was happening on the water below. The photos on the website don't do it justice and both apartment and the communal areas in the block are very clean and tidy. If you buy an all attractions dockyard ticket (use Tesco club card vouchers) you can use the free waterbus from the submarine museum over to Portsmouth but we found buying a 10 trip ticket from the gosport ferry office is a much easier (and not very expensive) option. Much shorter walk, no bag searches and no queuing! We didn't use our car at all. Just parked up (parking was a little limited but we managed) and walked all week. There are plenty of supermarkets, restaurants and cafes in the vicinity. Although we were so pleased with the view we stayed in every night and cooked in the well equipped kitchen and enjoyed a meal and a drink looking out of the windows. If you do want a little drive the hovercraft museum at Lee on Solent is also worth a visit. But check opening times. A trip to the top of spinnaker tower is also recomended (use club card tokens here too). The afternoon tea option looked very inviting - something I must book for our next visit.
Paul and Paula have thought of everything. A very high standard, contempory
apartment with absolutely fantastic views. Minutes from the Gosport ferry making trips to Portsmouth really easy. Gunwharf Quay was brilliant for shopping with a large range of great restaurants. Gosport was an ideal base to visit other places such as Bournemouth, Chichester, Emsworth and Christchurch. We also had a long walk to Lee on Solent. When I needed to contact the owners they always got back to me quickly with friendly responses.
The location is perfect - right on the esplanade overlooking the Spinnaker across the harbour, with the Gosport ferry a few minutes' walk from the door. The apartment is clean, modern, light and airy and equipped with everything you could possibly need. The view from the 8th floor is stunning and we spent a lot of time just admiring all the activity on the water below - the ferry, the Isle of Wight boats, the Geest banana boat and much more besides. Also highly recommend popping up to the viewing gallery on the roof as you can see for miles. Booking was easy, Paul and Paula very helpful, and they even left us some milk and a ginger cake for our arrival. Would definitely stay again and highly recommend Spinnaker View.
We really enjoyed our stay at the Spinnaker View Apartment.
Spotlessly clean, comfortable and great views of the Spinnaker tower and waterfront.
Couldn't be much closer to the ferry. Excellent
There is so much to commend this apartment, from views, standards of cleanliness, location, parking, and the prompt and friendly responses of Paula. The photos do not do it justice and it definitely has the wow factor. We stayed as 2 couples, which did mean that one couple had twin beds, but this was such a small compromise to make. The kitchen was fully equipped apart from a dishwasher, but this would never be a deal breaker despite a dislike of washing up. The solarium on the roof would be great on colder, wet days. Shopping is close but maybe be not close enough for anyone with walking difficulties. Excellence is rare but this lovely apartment warrants it and it was excellent value too. Thankyou Paula and Paul.
