"Wonderful holiday in beautiful apartment"
Enjoyed a fabulous weeks holiday (wall to wall sunshine) in a perfect location right on Gunwharf Quay. The accommodation was first class, very modern within a lovely traditional building and we couldn't fault it. Neeraj and Jo (owners) are very accommodating hosts, happy to help with any questions on the surrounding area etc. and lovely people to deal with. Thank you for a very enjoyable holiday - we will certainly be returning.

"Great accommodation in an excellent position"
Lovely accommodation - clean and well maintained. The position is so good that you can park your car when you get there and should never need it again. Within easy (minutes) walking distance are: Portsmouth historic dockyard, including the new Mary Rose museum; a great choice of restaurants, bars and shops; great pubs that sell real ale (especially the Still & West which is right on the water front) and views of the harbour with lots of activity. It is also only about a 10 minute walk to the beaches of Southsea. Owners were friendly and helpful. The property was very quiet - although minutes away from restaurants and bars. We would definitely stay there again.
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay in our apartment in Portsmouth and especially that you enjoyed the peace and quiet of the building especially considering its location minutes from all the area has to offer.
Thanks very much for taking the time to write a review and we look forward to seeing you again in the future.

"Overall Great Experience"

Thanks very much for taking the time to write a review, which we appreciate greatly and we are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us.
In answer to your observations our apartments are self catering and we certainly provide everything most guests require on arrival. There is always a full toilet roll left in each apartment and if you recall on arrival one of your group went to the toilet straight away. However, if this has been an oversight on our part we apologise and would have gladly provided more if requested. As far as the trash bag is concerned we always leave a liner in the bin and tend to find this is sufficient for our guests for their stay. Once again we would have gladly provided extra if required or requested and certainly take on board your points.
We have an allowance on the electricity useage to raise peoples awareness of leaving heating on with windows open, which has occurred in the past. In 7 years of offering our apartments we have only had 4 occasions when guests have exceeded the allowance we provide and then only by a few pounds which we have ignored in all but one of the cases.
Finally, we very much appreciate your recommendation regarding staying at our apartments and thank you for confirming that you are looking forward to visiting us again this year. This is something we pride ourselves upon as a large number of our guests are repeat visitors.

"Fantastic location and excellent apartment"
Stayed here over half term with family. Very comfortable and spacious apartment with everything on your doorstep so it was lovely not to have to use the car. Owners were very accommodating and a pleasure to meet. Would recommend for a visit and we will probably come back again next year for a short break.
Many thanks for taking the time to post a review and for your kind words. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
