The hotel was practically abandoned by staff. One person on duty the entire time we were there. The noise level was unbearable. The in room glasses were dirty. The flooring was a trip hazard. The service was awful, and management was completely unapproachable and reachable.

This is the place to stay. Staff are wonderfully welcoming and the hotel is beautiful! The rooms are fabulous, oversized, and modern. An IPad is in each room to manage your stay and the TV. The shower is extra large and a huge claw foot soaker tub is available.The bed was a dream! Parking is available in back and everything... More

We were traveling up to Maine and decided to stay here one night on the way up. It was late when we walked in but Taylor checked us in and gave us items that we forgot like shaving cream and toothbrushes. We were in room 208 tucked upstairs in the corner. It was a big king room with a comfy... More

The staff could not have been more welcoming and professional! The room was clean and tastefully decorated. The bath products were luxurious! Robes were comfortable. Complementary breakfast was elegant and delicious! The common rooms were extremely comfortable and it was nice to have the daily newspapers. Just two blocks from downtown, which is certainly walking distance, but far enough away... More

Very nice quiet room. The staff friendly and helpful. The newly remodeled bathrooms are first rate. Many choices for the included breakfast and free on site parking a plus. Less than a 10 minute walk to Prescott Park or Market Square. Plenty of space to enjoy in the public areas downstairs.

Can say enough great things about the staff! We were greeted by Taylor, Josiah, and Joanna. They were all very friendly and accommodating. Joanna even played with my 16month old daughter as she ran around the lobby! While i would not recommend bringing small children to the area, Josh Labbe's and his team made us feel special for do just... More

Very friendly staff. Clean hotel and room. Room also spacious and quiet. Reasonably priced. Wanted to stay longer. Breakfast included and good. No bar or restaurant but restaurants, etc all very close by - a short walk. Car park. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this hotel to family and friends and would definitely book again.

Stayed the night for our anniversary. It was perfect: easy to find, plenty of parking, friendly staff, clean & classy rooms that were vintage with modern twist. Big TV, lots of elbow room, walking distance to downtown area. Could ask for more, and it was one of the cheapest rooms available. Will go back here every me we visit Portsmouth.

What a great place to stay. Great parking off street was the first nice thing we noticed. The Hotel itself has a great vibe going on. Victorian in its bones but very classical and modern touches. The staff was so friendly. The kitchen area well stocked at all times. I was able to get goldfish for a late night snack... More
