After a clear and helpfull booking experience and a warm reception from the owner, we were eating on the balcony withing 1 hour of arrival. Enjoying the hub bub of the square below, yachts and ferries sailing past on the left and the Spinnaker tower with its glowing lights within a stones throw.
Great location for the portsmouth boat yard, old town, walking distance to Southsea, loads of restaurants and we even tried the Casino.
Would definitely stay again, probably next year.
