I have no experience with this B&B. The information was given by my friend who sough accommodation for her family. This is only for your reference.
14 rooms, most of which has either bath or shower facilities, serves the business man and visitor alike. All rooms have wash hand basins with constant hot water, excellent beds, bedside lamps, TV, shaver sockets and tea or coffee making facilities.
On every fllor there are approxiately five rooms, double, single and twin-bedded, a modern bathroom and toilets. Shallow stairs separate the floors and even the highest floors would not daunt the eldery or infirm.
An interesting menu of quality home-cooked food is always available in the bar.
The Hotel has a complete full "on licence" and offers a wide selection of real ales in the Bar situated on the ground floor, whilst on the first floor, overlooking Portsmouth Catherdral.

I used to run a small shop in Southsea which brought many tourists in and I used to advertise our shop in the local B+B's. There are many here, and from what I've heard, they're good value.
There's a lot of competition and they mostly reside in walking distance from the beach which is in Southsea (the seaside part of Portsmouth) and this is an attractive and lively area with a funfair, large commons and small garden areas, main shops, pubs, restaurants and nightclubs.
We've stayed here many times during the year. The service is very good, they really care about their guests. The manager is very nice and has always helped us if we had problems. We always get a reduced price as we're regulars. :) We always feel very welcomed.
Located just by South Parade Pier, perfect! The hotelrooms/apartments are fine, but not amazing, but can't complain though. The price is low.
I've always enjoyed our stays, but if I have to choose some negative qualities... they usually have lousy TV:s, toilets which don't flush strong enough and the fire alarm used to go off very often but it hasn't been so bad lately!
17.5 UK Pounds (single)
Close to Continental and Isle of Wight ferries, Motorway and mainline railway stations, Central to commercial centre and tourist attractions, Meals: Breakfast served from 6.15am for those catching an early ferry. Evening meals available.
It was £50 for a twin room with ensuite. Our room was on the ground floor, the window at the front of the building. Our bathroom was fairly small, okay, really small, but it was clean and tidy.
We had tea making facilities in our room as well as packets of biscuits, always welcome after stumbling home from the pubs ;-)
There's only a couple of rooms at this B&B as it's done out of a family home but we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The top room actually has a terrace with a lovely view.
Lovely B&B just steps from the harbour. Friendly owners and it's about 50 feet from two different pubs and another 100 feet from another pub! This B&B has been in operation for over 37 years.
There's a pay and display parking lot across the street so lots of parking.
Breakfast is on the 2nd floor (1st floor in UK) in the bay window and it's a filling full English Breakfast. The view from the bay window is quite nice, overlooking the quay.
I believe there's a choice of English Breakfast or Continental Breakfast, however, just read website again and it looks like Continental Breakfast from 6:30 to 8:45 and Full English Breakfast available from 7:30 to 8:45. I guess this allows the cook some time to herself in the morning ;-)
AT HOME ON THE QE 2
This postcard depicts our Lodging. Someone had to row the boat. We were allowed to disembark after the chains were removed and our whip wounds bandaged,
The most frequently asked question amongst the rowers was, 'How much do you tip the Whipper?'
