The staff could not have been more helpful; we booked a hot tub and they took care of liaising with the hot tub company, we were running late and they popped round to take delivery of our online food shop. The house itself is great for groups, can we set up as single beds or double beds. Garden is lovely and lots of chairs and space, big dining table and also a big conservatory which we used most. Plenty of room for parking lots of cars. Kitchen is a little small but we cooked for 12 so it does the job. Would definitely recommend for big families, friends get together and nice hen and stags

It is comfortable, well-equipped - and so useful to have WIFI - bright and tastefully decorated, with captivating panoramic views over parts of the city and the harbour. It is very well located, very close to the Portsmouth Historic Dockyard and to many amenities, including Gunwharf Quay Shopping Centre. It was very good to have a parking space in a secure car park. The host Dariush was most helpful and welcoming. An excellent place to stay.
