"If I was going to Portsmouth again I would definitely stay there again."
Lovely place, excellent location, no problems whatsoever. Very happy and would stay there again. Pub over the road is fantastic. Parking round the back and there's a pass from the library for additional cars. Co -op over the road. Historic dockyard has a see it all ticker which lasts for a year so can split it up. Faringdon marshes is worth a morning walk. The aquarium was good. The place itself really is a good spot to stay. :)

"Great location - ideal for mix of attractions"
Stayed 4 nights. Cheery welcome on arrival. Apartment is clean and comfortable and had all the items we needed for our stay. Great location for both seaside and Portsmouth historic attractions. Car parking space a bonus and local shops nearby. Overall very good value for money.

We stayed in this gorgeous, cosy apartment for a week in March.
We were met by the owner who showed us around and how to use everything - TV, cooker etc. It's easy to find and with parking right outside getting in and out is very easy. We didn't use the car that much as the apartment is close to all the local areas of interest. Gunwharf is only a 10 minute walk away and fabulous for shopping and eating. We spent a day at the Historical Naval Base - you must see the Mary Rose, Victory and HMS Warrior just outside the main gate - some wonderful shops inside the navjal base too!
Lauralee is a very comfortable, well-equipped apartment - very comfy bed. Even though on a road - not noisy. Very nice chinese at the end of the road and a shop just across the road. All in all a fantastic stay and very good value for . Would highly recommend - we will be back!

"Good location, good value"
The appartment was in a great location for evrything we needed. Loads of restuarants within walking distance in Southsea, Gunwharf Quays about a 15 min walk.
The appartment itself was a perfect size for the four of us. However, the kitchen was a bit poorly equipped and lacking quite a few things. For example, there were only 3 wine glasses, 2 other glasses and no baking dishes. I would have expected at least enough glasses for 4 people when the appartment sleeps this many! There were a few other niggles, such as a really bad shower and one of the beds just had a mattress cover, no sheet. And you couldn't get a lot of the channels on the TV.
Overall, it was good value and was fine for what we needed it for.
Apologies for the niggles re: the apartment. I have re-looked at the provision of equipment in the kitchen, there are now ample glasses and baking dishes. The apartment is fully fitted with Freeview digital TV with 40 channels, I can only assume that you had not switched the digi box on and you only had terrestrial TV. The shower is a powerfull electric power shower and I think you may not have pulled the cord for the shower to operate it when using it.
