Fortitude cottage is a lovely old townhouse in a fabulous location. The room we were given had views across to Gun Wharf and the Spinnaker tower. There are lots of good pubs and restaurants within easy walking distance and the Isle of Wight ferry is right on the doorstep.
The room was very clean and well maintained and the bed was very comfortable indeed. The bathroom was on the small side but we felt this was to be expected in this style of house. Maggie and Mike, who run Fortitude Cottage, were very welcoming and helpful. Breakfast is served in a first floor room with a huge bay window that again looks over the harbour. Breakfast was very nice... particularly the bacon!
Parking in this area of Portsmouth is never easy so we were delighted that Fortitude Cottage provide parking permits for the small car park that is directly opposite.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Fortitude Cottage and would have no hesitation in recommeding it.
