“Beautiful apartment in lovely location”
Reviewed 19 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Our second visit to one of Neeraj and Jo's apartments. The property is lovely, very clean , well equipped and in a wonderful location near all the amenities that Portsmouth has to offer. The property owners are very helpful and communication is excellent.

Would highly recommend this apartment and look forward to our next visit.

“Fantastic apartment and a great location!”
Reviewed 21 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay in this apartment. Joanne & Neeraj are very welcoming hosts and clearly do everything they can to ensure that guests enjoy their stay. The apartment was clean & spacious and our every need was catered for. The location of the apartment is perfect for exploring the historic dockyard, the harbour and Gunwharf Quay. It was lovely to have great restaurants on our doorstep and a Tesco Express handy for any gorceries. Part of the enjoyment for us was not having to drive anywhere for a few days!. We would love to return here one day and would highly recommend it.

“Perfect in every way !”
Reviewed 20 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Had a fantastic stay at the beautiful Vulcan building. Neeraj and Joanne are such a lovely welcoming couple, this in my opinion makes a huge difference. The apt is immaculate in a very central location with amazing restaurants and bars right on your door step. Cant wait to return.

“Beautiful apartment in awesome location”

When I was searching for a UK apartment, I cam across the Vulcan Building. Having been to Gunwharf Quays (shopping/dining complex on the coast), the location was very appealing. As it turned out, the location was even better than expected and the apartment itself was a delight. It was fully equipped and the beds were very comfortable. Having two bathrooms (one en suite) was very nice. As you step out the front door, you are in Gunwharf Quays with restaurants, bars and shops all to hand. A small supermarket provided any needs we had. In the same building is the Lock Fyne restaurant, which was excellent (see separate review). We were on the 2nd fllor (1st floor for Brits) and an elevator is available. Although it was quite expensive for a week, it was location, location, location.
