We had a wonderful weekend staying in Rugby Road. The house was spacious, clean and homely, with a large well equipped kitchen and comfortable sitting room. The location was perfect - easily within walking distance of popular areas including the harbour, restaurants, local shops and larger shopping centre - and the house also had convenient parking right outside! Would definitely recommend!
This is a student let rented out as a holiday let in the summer and it's condition reflects this. The cleaning could be better, dust on the wooden floor ,on the dvd player and mantlepiece,etc. I don't expect a palace and accept some wear and tear on a property but for what I paid I expect the toilet seat not to move (a common problem in holiday lets), the light over the bathroom sink to work properly and not be stuck on with tape and the bathroom door knob not to fall off. The bedrooms were pretty bare with desks in (and locks on the door) for the students! Nice plump pillows on the beds would have been nice and more than three bath towels for four people. Hairs on the bedsheets is off putting. The lounge could do with more lighting. I don't know if it was us, but we really struggled to get the front door to lock from the outside. On street parking was not a problem.
I arrived home yesterday from a lovely weeks stay here. This was literally like home from home, practically everything we needed was provided. The house is in a great location, nothing is too far away and the train station is less than a 10 minute walk. The hosts were extremely friendly and helpful. The house is spacious and the beds were incredibly comfortable. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for somewhere to stay in Portsmouth and I wouldn't hesitate to go back. Thank you Pamela and Julie for a brilliant stay, I can't wait to come back :)
The house had everything we needed, washer dryer, fridge freezer and dishwasher, Julie who looks after the house was very welcoming and helpful. Good location fir beach, shops and days out.
