    location was the best thing about the Duke of Buckingham. 10 min walk from the harbour.

    Room was to small. pillows where flat. cups where to big for the kettle, had to re boil it to make 2 cups.

    Good location. Lovely room. Very clean and friendly staff. Really good room rate.

    Brilliant value but no toiletries. Fine for the money but useful to know. Likewise breakfast not available on premises.

    The hotel was an excellent location for Old Portsmouth and Gubwharf keys. Also, it had a lovely bathroom with a fantastic shower!

    The hotel offered tea making facilities in the room, but the 'travel' kettle was so full of limescale I chose not to use it.

    Travelling from France we arrived late on sunday evening. As the establishement seems to close around 4pm on sundays, a note with a contact number was left on the door. The night manager arrived promplty, greeted us warmly and pointed some restaurants if we wanted something to eat. The room wasn't very spacious but clean and tidy, all we needed for our stay. We know where to stay on our next visit !!!

    We found it to be exactly as described on the web. Clean room, courteous staff, good value.

    Problem with getting hot water through the shower; the pipes were hot but it didn't transfer to the shower head. Bit noisy being so close to other rooms but not a nuisance.

    Location is excellent to pubs, sea wall, Ferries and Queys Shopping centre

    No view from rooms

  • Older travelers

    we have stayed before, and like the location, friendly atmosphere of the pub, and the staff were great

    only downside lack of breakfast, but that won't stop us returning

    The room is comfortable. They do not have soap or shampoo but I had those item with me. The location is a easy walk to the university and shopping is not far beyond that. Had a good stay.

  • Group of friends
    7.8

    Staff were very friendly, rooms very clean and cosy.

    I was sure when I booked I saw it had onsite parking, not the case but they provided a permit for street parking. Didn't like having to go through the busy bar to check in.

  • Couple
    5.0

    Central location and very convient for places like Commercial road, Southsea, Gunwharf Quays and Old Portsmouth.

    We booked a "Double room" and the only thing double about it was the bed! And that was on the small side! And the phrase not enough room to swing a cat! Definitely applied! There were no glasses in the room, so had to drink wine from a tea cup! There were spelling in the information pack, apparently the Duke of Buckingham is situated on the Hugh street, not the High street!! Maybe include breakfast in your room rates.

    Itchy sheets, no breakfast, EXTREMELY loud water tanks IN my room keeping me awake all night- even above the volume of my ipod which I tried unsuccessfully to use to drown out the sound.

  • Older travelers

    Excellent value, good comfortable and clean room, friendly and helpful staff.

  • Single

    The service was friendly and quite helpful. There were plenty of places nearby to dine in. The area near the hotel was safe close to Gunwharf Quays and the numerous outlet and high end stores there as well as the ferries to the Isle of Wight and the dock yard museums. Found it easy to get around Portsmouth from there as well. Good location. Would stay there again.

    I believe it once served food but doesn't anymore. This left me free to try the other very good pubs and restaurants nearby. I was only disappointed when I arrived a bit tired from my trip from London as I planned a quiet evening getting organized for my stay on Portsmouth. It was not however a hardship for me as it might have been for other travellers who do not care to explore what the neighbourhood has to offer.
