We stayed the first week in February and although we know Portsmouth reasonably well we found the apartment so convenient for everything we wanted , Comfortable, fresh and everything we needed. There was always something to see going in and out of Portsmouth Harbour and as I said so much on the `doorstep` . Although we had a car, which had its own parking space allocated to the apartment, we really did not have to use it , as so much to see it within walking distance be it the busy shoppping centre, quiet walks, places of interest, ferries etc, etc., . We certainly would stay there again. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners to ensure we were comfortable.
Thank you very much for taking the time to submit a review of your recent stay at Solent Views.
We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed the quality of your holiday accommodation and the wonderful location of Old Portsmouth and surrounding area with all it has to offer.
We look forward to welcoming you again in the near future.
With Warm Regards

Hope to revisit again in the future.

We really enjoyed our stay.
The flat is newly & beautifully refurbished to a very high standard.
The decor is light and fresh, lighting is excellent, the ambience pleasant and beds and bedding very comfortable.
The quality overall is excellent.
Top floor flat, but only two flights of stairs so not a problem for carrying a stroller upstairs. Good access from front and rear of property, close to two off-road parking spaces at the rear of the development of apartments.
You could not ask for a better location.
Only 10 minutes walk to Southsea in one direction (castle, beach, hovercraft, amusements and pleasant shops) and 10 minutes walk to the newly redeveloped docks (eateries, outlet shopping centre, iconic landmarks and tourist attractions).
Just around the corner is the ferry port to the Isle of White - and our daytrip there was easy - (look for deals internet on ferry plus attraction tickets).
Views from the apartment were super regardless of time or weather.
We watched stormy waves lash over the sea wall, fireworks at night, tranquil seas and loved spotting the Navy craft - look for the code number on the front of the boat, put into Wikipedia and come up with the details of the craft - we saw destroyers, frigates, patrol boats, dredgers - great fun with our young son.
The owners dealt with us directly, met us at the property and were helpful with our queries.
Although priced at more than other properties of a similar size, this one wins hands down on quality of property, views, location and accessibility.
We would thoroughly recommend this property.
Thank you so much for taking the time to post such a wonderfully clear and comprehensive review of Solent Views.
We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your holiday and stay and the property and that you appreciated the recent complete refurbishment. We very much appreciate all feedback, as this helps to maintain standards of accommodation and levels of customer service, which are very important aspects of our guests overall holiday experience.
If you revisit the area and choose to stay with us again you will be most welcome.
Thank you again
Warm Regards from us all
