The accommodation is modern and furnished to a high level, the building is in the popular Gunwharf Quays, close to the beaches and all amenities. Gunwharf Quays itself has many good places to eat and drink and a good variety of outlet shopping.

We spent two weeks here in January 2011- would highly recommend- location, location, location! In addition the place was sparkling clean. So much more cozy than staying in a hotel room. Very modern! … More
Thank you, the location is amazing!
If the option is hotel or the flat, choose the flat every time as more like home.

"Avoid if you dont like the very loud squal of train brakes"
Unfortunately the apartment was situated higher but opposite a very very busy railway track.(We were on the 7th floor) The track came down towards Gunwharf Quays(About 200 yrds away) then had to corner into Portsmouth Railway station. The scream and squeal of the trains brakes as train travelled around the bend and then the noise that resonanted as it passed over a road bridge was unbearable. The trains seemed to run from 5am to midnight and the noise meant you could hardly hear each other speak. We tried to stay out of the apartment as much as we could!!!!!!!
The toaster was damaged and the dishwasher,s tray had 2 wheels missing, consequently the tray caught on the water sprinkler, the pots were not washed properly. My partner had to descale the kitchen as each time we used it, water poured out from the bottom.
The apartment also has has 2 fold down beds, which are very uncomfortable to sit on. I would suggest have at least one comfortable seettee.
The positive side the apartment was very close to all the eaterys, retail shops, sea front and tourist attractions.
If trains are your interest I would recommend this property, if not avoid!
Yes, you can hear trains if the windows are open, however that also means that rail links are very convenient for guests travelling to Portsmouth and during their stay.
