My wife and I along with our two friends Brian & Sharon Rogers booked a table last night at The Buckingham. The table was waiting for us in a splended accommodating setting. The staff were very polite and made us very welcome. For a starter two of us had whitebait and two had garlic mushrooms which were cooked very well... More

Great room and comfortable bed. Room size great. Shocked to find the rooms here.....lived in Portsmouth for years and never knew the rooms were there. Great location for sightseeing and shopping. Next time I'm in Portsmouth will definitely stay again.

Clean comfortable room on the third floor so a few stairs, well appointed clean room with an ensuite shower, the towel rail and shower riser needed refixing to the wall but it didn`t really bother us. We stayed for 2 nights and room was cleaned and fresh towels left after the first night, pub next door which we didn`t try... More

Located in the city center. Cheap, clean, spacious room. The best choice if you want to stay in the city center. Staff is amazing and helpful. The blonde girl at reception is really nice. I will come back for sure again.

We had a lovely one night stay in this hotel. The room was fairly small, but we weren't really there for long - one night and we made use of being so close to Gunwharf Quays and had a great night out there, walking via Old Portsmouth and a look around the candlelit cathedral. It was about a 10 minute... More

The Duke of Buckingham is a clean comfortable and convenient place to stay. We had a twin room with a shared bathroom. That worked fine. The staff are friendly and helpful. I would recommend and return next year.

The hotel is very convenient for walking into and around the historic and shopping areas of Portsmouth. Car parking is on residential streets but a permit is provided. It was clean and well equipped and the bed was very comfy. It was a small room but for an overnight stay, perfectly adequate. The hotel is atop a great pub and... More

The Duke of Buckingham Hotel appears to be a separate business from the Pub over which the rooms are located although discounts for residents are available if you eat next at the Pub which offers a good menu and is amazing value for money.
