The Champs has a spectacular location, high above the small village of Picard and its huge Ross University School of Medicine. Because of the Christmas holidays, nearly all local shops and restaurants were shuttered. Fortunately, The Champs provides a hearty breakfast and a wide range of dinner options.

We enjoyed our visit very much! The staff was very helpful. They helped us rent a car and gave us tips of what to do in the area. The breakfast was great! There is not much to do in the town of Portsmouth but we enjoyed our time here regardless.

The Champs Hotel managed by Hans and Lise is a wonderful place for relaxation and friendly social interaction. Situated high on a hill overlooking beautiful Portsmouth harbor, we had a birds eye view of sunrise, sunset, and rainbows. The food was first class at the restaurant. Breakfast was free, and Hamika, the cook, made it taste 5 star! The bar...

After all the hype from the trip advisor reviews, we had awfully high expectations for our stay at The Champs. It did not disappoint. The views are breathtaking, the grounds are immaculate and well kempt, the bar was very good and the food was superb (ranging from a must-do Fine Dining Friday to wood fired pizza). All of this is...

Great rooms with an unbelievable view over the bay. Breakfast is very special. On their open balcony you get your personal fresh prepared breakfast. Fine dining on Friday with top chef Eric is a great experience. Always with this beautiful sunset. And the personal touch from Lise and Hans made this stay again suburb.
