Stayed here for two nights when visiting the area. Great location with just being a stones throw away from the centre of Southsea. Parking permit included with the room which was a massive bonus. Walking distance to the centre of Portsmouth too. Check in was done via text and super easy to enter building. Great to have use of kitchen facilities too. Would highly recommend.

I booked this as a very last minute getaway and what a find it was! Such a reasonable price for a great room. Spacious kitchen and living room area which was free to use at our convenience. Emma checked in via text making sure all was ok which was great! Would highly recommend this guest house, great location as well! Lovely clean rooms with en-suite. The beds are super comfy as well!

I was looking for somewhere affordable but comfortable as visiting area for funeral and didnt want to drive there and back in one day, I found a great deal at the last minute with blue star, the cost was really very affordable but that wasn't reflected in the comfort or cleanliness of the hotel. The room was absolutely lovely, very good quality bed and bedding, the TV worked, the walk in shower was lovely, the kitchen is open all the way through the night so you can get up and make a cuppa if you can't sleep which in my case i couldn't as upset after funeral. I had the basement room and there is a little door to the patio area for smokers. The kitchen has absolutely everything you could possibly need and there is even a laundry room. I couldn't have asked for more, I would definetly come back. It is also covid secure, you don't need to come into contact with anyone else as you get a code to let yourself in with, the other guests kept their distance and there are masks and hand sanitizer available.
