“Wonderful holiday in beautiful apartment”

Reviewed 3 Aug 2013

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”

Reviewed 20 Jul 2013

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.

“Fantastic location and excellent apartment”

Reviewed 19 Nov 2012

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.
