We stayed here for the Great South Run, and what a treat it was to stay in such a comfortable b&b with only a short walk to the start. We stayed in the Ward room, the bathroom was out of this world, a jacuzzi bath, which was just what you needed after a long run with tired legs. The room was huge, well decorated and spotlessly clean. Mark and Sian were the perfect hosts, and I feel REALLY guilty for not being able to sleep on the first night (that is what comes of living in a really quiet cul-de-sac where no traffic goes by) I did sleep perfectly the second night and would not let this stop me from booking the same room again. Probably one of the best b&b's we have stayed in, certainly the best in Portsmouth by far, keep up the good work Mark & Sian.
