The website sells this but not what you get when your there. Very tired decor but clean & warm. Greeted with dog dirt on the pavement right outside the driveway ( been there 4 days now) owners DIY skills are very basic. Finishings don't reach the edges. The shower in room 11 is by far the worst I have ever...

All you need at a very reasonable rate! This pleasant guest house is situated in a nice quiet area of Southsea, off the front. My room was clean, with a comfortable bed, tea and coffee and a TV. Breakfast was very nice, and the home made jams, excellent! Possibly the finest thing, is the quiet. Not a knock or the...

Thoroughly enjoyed our 3 day stay mainly because we had such a nice stay at St Margaret's Lodge. The room was spotlessly clean. Bed was comfortable. Sheets were white and crisp. Bathroom was lovely. The breakfasts were amazing with home-made jams by Daniel the owner and breakfast maker. Daniel was informative and friendly and very obliging. Free Wi-fi. This place...

Cosy room with everything I needed; superb breakfasts; staff very pleasant; on a direct bus service to/from Portsmouth Harbour & also walkable from Fratton Station; quiet location, but close to sea front; absolutely value for money. If & when I next visit Portsmouth (hopefully next year) I very much hope to stay here again.

We have stayed at this small hotel five or six times over recent years for short stays and our most recent stop- March 2016 - has confirmed our earlier views. It deserves a recommendation for its convenience, comfort and cleanliness, providing a very enjoyable breakfast and helpful service. A short walk to the seafront and bus routes.

Recently spent a few nights at St.Margarets and a very pleasurable experience it was. I stayed in a single en suite room which was spotlessly clean and quite spacious with a very comfortable bed. The full English breakfasts were excellent complete with very nice home made jams, and the meal was available from 07.15 on weekdays making it very useful...
