We had a really good time in Portsmouth. The apartment was ideal for us. A great location with everything our family needed within easy walking distance or a short bus ride away, with theme parks and the New Forest only 40 minutes drive, We enjoyed ourselves and would have no hesitation in recommending the place to our friends. We experienced good communication and hospitality from Nick and Lou,

Apartment clean, spacious and tidy. Quiet. View of the sea (just). Location is convenient for coast, Southsea and Portsmouth. Very close to main bus route. Day parking outside the apartment is pay by meter, although free parking can be found on nearby streets.Third floor means lots of stairs.
