We really enjoyed our stay here, this is a well presented clean apartment in a fantastic location, great views across the Solent, you could sit on the balcony all day and night watching the ships and boats go by. the private secure parking is very convenient.

“What a fantastic location”
Reviewed July 22, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Really enjoyed our stay here, easy access to all the sights of Portsmouth and the surrounding area. Nice to sit and watch the shipping world go by from the picture windows in the lounge

“Brilliant peaceful location, loved it!”
Reviewed March 30, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

A well equipped apartment in a perfect location for leaving the car safely parked as everything is within an easy meander. Super comfy beds ensure a good nights sleep, the huge sofa is perfect for watching the variety of craft in and out of the harbour. We hope to return in the future.
Thanks Paul !

“Great location, great views and very comfortable beds”
Reviewed January 11, 2015 for a stay in November 2014

A lot of positives have already been said about this apartment. If anything the photos don't do it justice. 10 out of 10 for everything. While I was there the landlord changed the rather tired mattresses for top quality new ones from John Lewis. Very very comfortable sleeping which to mind is the most important aspect when staying away from home.

“A Room with a View.”
Reviewed July 12, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

This apartment must have the best views in Portsmouth. Was hard to tear ourselves away from the window. The apartment was clean and reasonably well equipped a few more plates cups etc would be good. Everything was on the doorstep no need for a car.
Downside was the beds were uncomfortable very thin mattress although the sofa bed was comfortable. Think a bit if investment in good quality furniture is needed.
I would love to return again but the price seems to have increased quite a bit for next year. If the beds are improved I may consider a return visit.
Mentioned all this in the Visitors book.
All in all well worth it for that wonderful view from the window.

Fabulous location, beautiful,uninterrupted views across the solent from the huge lounge window /balcony, lovely to sit on the balcony in the evening and just listen to the sea ! The side windows look across the Square & Round Towers & fortifications, 1 min walk from the secluded "Hot Rocks" beach, you can pick up the "Nelson Trail" from the footpath at both front & back doors.Perfect ! The apartment itself is of a high standard & well equipped, plenty of pubs & restaurants on the doorstep, however, it was a delight to just stay in, sprawl across the huge sofa & enjoy the views !
We shall definitely be staying again.
Thank you Paul.

Every room has a sea view. Brilliant if you love ships - everything coming in or out of the harbour passes within yards of the balcony! The apartment was very well equipped and had plenty of room for just the two of us.

The location is brilliant! The secure parking space was an unexpected bonus in this part of town. We left the car there and walked to all the places we wanted to visit.

The only downside was the noise from the lift, especially at night. But this is a very small quibble.
