'We loved Fortitude Cottage. Maggie and Mike were great hosts and our double en-suite harbour-view room was lovely; bright, clean and airy with good storage, a comfy bed and plenty of refreshment (tea/coffee/water etc). Breakfast was great, the location is superb within an easy 10-20 minute stroll of Gunwharf Quays and the sights at the Historic Dockyard respectively. We would definitely stay again.'

Warm Welcome, Compact Room
4 stars 4

'We had a one night stay at Fortitude Cottage and were in a room with a harbour view. Lovely warm welcome from Maggie on arrival (we were a little earlier than we expected) and the inclusion of a parking permit so we could leave the car close to the B&B was great. The town centre and primary attractions are all within 10-15 minutes walk so we did not use the car during our stay. The room was pleasant enough although the ensuite 'room' was very small - not for the claustrophobic ! Breakfast (full English) was very good with a wide range of choices. We were made to feel welcome throughout and would certainly recommend Fortitude Cottage for its location and hospitality.'

5 stars 5

'I booked this weekend away as a Christmas gift for my husband & Fortitude Cottage was a brilliant choice. The owners are very friendly, welcoming and helpful. We had the penthouse room on the top floor. This was a beautiful room, which has access to a roof terrace with amazing views! The weather was lovely & we sat with our friends outside watching the ships sail in & out of the harbour. Our friends had a deluxe room, again beautifully decorated, with all the necessary comforts. Breakfast was delicious, with everything you could wish for. The location is perfect for visiting the Spinnaker Tower, the Naval Dockyard & Gunwharf Quay (brilliant shopping, bars & restaurants). The Dockyard is a must, with the Mary Rose, HMS Victory & Warrior & a harbour boat tour included. We stayed for 2 nights, which wasn't long enough to see everything, so we will be going back to Portsmouth again, and will definitely be staying at Fortitude Cottage.'

Penthouse room was quaint with it's own outdoor spiral staircase up to the rooftop deck with daybed and great views across the harbour to the Spinnaker, great at night when lit up. The bottle of bubbly went down very well too, a great relaxer after a long day touring! The other room, Superior Double, was as described, and had super chic décor and was very roomy. The breakfasts were first class and nothing was too much bother to either Maggie or Mike. Hotel was very quiet and 3 local (round the corner)pubs offered great choices of menu and ambience. Recommend the Bridge Hotel opposite the hotel especially. All up an excellent stay.'

Would be nice to have breakfast time slightly later, maybe till 10am, so you can feel the benefit of your nights stay.

'What a lovely place, so close to the harbour and so close to the main shopping centre. Small and intimate pubs close by, so close it is but 2 mins to walk! We were welcomed heartily and graciously by our host. She showed us the dining room and explained about breakfast and times and then showed us to our lovely room. Everything we needed was there, the bed was comfortable and big, linen clean and fresh and pillows comfy and soft. Bathroom was a good size with a fantastic shower and soft, fluffy bath and hand towels. Plenty of tea, coffee, sugar and milk and also 2 large sachets of horlicks night time drink and 2 peppermint chocolates. Wifi usable with a very, very good connection even though we were on the top floor. Breakfast was delicious with plenty of cereals, fruit (canned and fresh) , yoghurt and juices and hot choices of full English down to beans on toast. We had scrambled eggs and the vegetarian choice of tomatoes, hash brown and mushrooms. All cooked the right way and very tasty. Check out was a breeze, very friendly and kind hosts and my request of two bottles of water (which I offered to pay for) were given free of charge. If we were to ever come back to Portsmouth, it would be to the Fortitude Cottage. Perfect in every single way!'

Excellent B&B and Location
5 stars 5

'Fortitude Cottage is located an easy walk from the Portsmouth railway station and ferry terminals. In one direction you have the Historic dockyard and the shops of Gunwharf Quays; in the other you have the walk along the battlements, Clarence Pier, and Southsea Castle. The immediate area is well populated by pubs and restaurants. The management serves a good full English breakfast, with a variety of lighter options. The rooms are well equipped, with everything working and plenty of storage for clothing and toiletries. We did have some intermittent trouble with the WiFi server not accepting the password. This is an excellent base from which to explore Portsmouth and Gosport.'

Based in the old harbour, the location could not be more ideal - fantastic pubs and restaurants are just around the corner (The Still & West is the best) and Gunwharf Quays is within walking distance, not to mention the spinnaker tower and the harbour itself. Our room was very comfortable and quiet, despite being on the ground floor with street views, and the breakfast was superb. Maggie and Mike are a lovely couple who make you feel very welcome.

Bubbly on the roof ....
5 stars 5

'Yes we did, chocolates too and compliments of Mike & Maggie at the Fortitude Cottage. My wife and I were in Portsmouth prior to our lad's graduation at Portsmouth University so we were in the mood for a celebration and found Fortitude Cottage, opted for the Penthouse room which boasts a rooftop terrace with spectacular views, spectacular indeed with the Spinnaker Tower and Gunwharf Quays just across the water, a short walk.. Fortitude Cottage really is 5 star. Anyone who may have read any of my other reviews won't need reminding that I used to travel 'professionally' and at someone else's expense, the best way to go in my view! As a result I have become quick to recognise and point out any short fall on the part of a hotel, B&B too! I also recognise the extra effort that makes a good place great. We had room 4, the penthouse, and my wife fell in love with it as soon as we walked through the door. Mike showed us around pointing out the facilities ....bubbly & chocs in the fridge, onto a small terrace with comfy chairs and up a spiral staircase to the roof with beautiful floral decorations, petunias my wife tells me? and a huge day bed .....spectacular The bed is huge and wonderfully comfortable. The room has air conditioning which for our stay 21st July and 30C outside was a god send. Breakfast on Monday morning was outstanding I went for the 'full English', the only time I ever eat a full English is when away from home? and my wife had scrambled eggs and smoked salmon and she was delighted. Everything was spotless, linen napkins too. Everything about Fortitude Cottage was quality, and now I'm already working on an excuse to go back For me the difference between an 'OK' place and an 'Excellent' place is the attention to detail and Mike & Maggie have ticked all the boxes. The Penthouse room is a little more expensive but worth it in spades Oh, Mike will provide you with a parking permit that allows to to park free of charge, what a good idea!'

'We stayed in the Penthouse suite and were very impressed with the quality; it was more akin to a top hotel than your typical B&B. The rooftop terrace makes the most of the excellent location with outstanding views of the coastline and the Spinnaker tower at Gun Wharf Quays which is a short ten minute walk away. Maggie & Mike are super friendly and overall I would thoroughly recommend to anyone who asks. We will definitely be back!'

'We spent one night here as we were attending a party at the nearby Still & West.We stayed in the Penthouse room which was large, bright, beautifully appointed and spotless. It was a tad chilly to make use of the 360 terrace in February but the views were stunning and I feel a trip to Portsmouth in the summer may be on the cards so that we can make the most of it. Breakfast was served in the lovely breakfast room and was delicious. Mike and Maggie were perfect hosts and made us feel very welcome. Fortitude Cottage reinforced my opinion that a well run B&B is head and shoulders above a faceless corporate chain hotel. Highly recommended. Thank you for a lovely stay.'

A birthday treat
5 stars 5

'What a lovely little find. And easy to find too, just stay on the A3 and stop just before your feet get wet! Fortitude Cottage is in an enviable location with interest and action all around. The scene out of the windows and the panoramic view off of the rooftop balcony is fascinating and always changing, and the Spinnaker that dominates the skyline looks great at all hours of the day (make sure you go up it for even more far-reaching views). Our room was was very nicely decorated and furnished - just on the right side of contemporary but with enough comfort and warmth to make it a pleasure to come back to after a brisk dockside walk. Maggie was there to greet us and settle us in and made sure we had all we needed, and to check that the penthouse room was nice and warm on what was a bitterly cold day. Our breakfast was really good and we sat at the window seat watching the ferries come and go before heading off for some bargain shopping at Gun Wharf Quay, just and easy stroll away. I can see us going back in the very near future.'

'As it was out first visit we decided to find the B&B before we discovered the shops and restaurant for lunch in Gunwharf Quays. There are convenient parking places immediately outside the front of the building, either on the street or the car park directly outside the front. Our hosts were at home some 4 hours before we were due to check-in, we were warmly welcomed, the car-park permit received & we checked in early. Stayed one night only in a large, well-fitted room with a view of the Spinnaker Tower, Gunwharf & Isle of Wight Ferry. The bathroom was as big as some B&B rooms we have stayed in, it had a large bath and a walk-in or "walk-around" shower room. More than ample cooked breakfast options, selection of fruit & cereals, fresh pot of coffee all professionally presented and served by excellent hosts. Great location for ship spotters and shopaholics!'

'My friend and I had a very enjoyable stay a Frotitude Cottage. It started with a warm welcome from one the the owners (Mike) with an explanation of the facilities, interesting information about the Old Town and Gun Wharf Quays. He also advised us on good restraunts , pubs and bars in the area. We were also greeted very warmly by Maggie (the other owner) who was equally friendly and helpful. There is a very relaxed and homely atsmophere at Fortitude Cottage. Nothing was too much trouble. And even though checkout was 10 am they kindly let us keep the room till 1 30 pm (without charging extra) as we were going to a christening at the cathedral at 2 pm and needed to change. The facilities are excellent as is the food. The bedroom and bathroom were very clean,stylish and confortable. We would definitely return and also recommend this excellent B&B.'

'If your thinking of booking Fortitude Cottage then stop thinking and do it, we weren't disappointed and and are sure you won't be either, Maggie & Mike will be waiting with a warm smile to welcome you. We stayed for a 3 night break (Thu-Sat)in room 5 which is on the ground floor in the next door accommodation.It is only 2 steps from one front door to the other so not a problem when you go for breakfast and what a breakfast too, we didn't eat lunch for 3 day's having had the very generous b/fast's that they offer each morning. The parking is free which is a big bonus and if you can't get in one of the spaces right outside then you can use the car park the other side of the road and although the Isle of Wight ferry terminal is within sight the double glazing does a very good job and we were never disturbed by the too-ing and fro-ing of the ferries. There are some excellent places to eat within a 10 min walk including a huge choice at Gunwharf Quays and we did not move the car from when we arrived to when we left apart from "she who must be obeyed" wanting to go to the Cascades shopping centre on the Sat morning. We really can't find anything to fault and will definitely stay here again should we decide to have another break in Portsmouth.'

'I lived in Portsmouth for many years and know the area well. I first found Fortitude Cottage a number of years ago when visiting Portsmouth with my husband and have never stayed anywhere else since. I now take my son regularly and he loves it too. Fortitude Cottage hosts a beautiful position in Old Portsmouth and is just steps away from the waterfront, ferry ports and Gunwharf Quays. The rooms are bright and airy and always spotless clean.....I particularly like the penthouse room with the private roof terrace which is where I stay with my husband, but the ground floor twin room I stay in with my son is equally as suitable. Maggie & Mike always offer a warm welcome and will go out of their way to do whatever they can to help you and make your stay more comfortable. The English breakfast is excellent, freshly cooked each morning and served with a smile. Like I say I would honestly never stay anywhere else.....Fortitude Cottage has everything!'

5 stars 5

'Attention to detail " best sums up Mike and Maggies' approach to their Business. From the minute we booked online, everything happened efficiently, yet in a relaxed and unobtrusive way. Our Room (Room 5) was as described; stylsh comfortable and well equipped with a superb en-suite "wet room".The Dining Room has stunning views across the Harbour to the Spinnaker Tower and Breakfast options will satisfy the most demanding of palates. The property is located a short walk away from Gunwharf Quays and the various Maritime Museums and close to a wide variety of "eating out" options. Parking is free for Fortitude Residents. Mike and Maggie take Customer Service to new levels and are always on hand to give advice on local amenities. (We arrived having damaged a tyre on our car but before we could call Roadside Assistance Mike, personally, changed the wheel for us - service "over and above" or what!) We will definiitely stay again and unreservedly, recommend Fortitude .We are grateful to Mike and Maggie for making our stay a pleasant and comfortable one. Tom & Pauline B'

'I stayed in Fortitude Cottage for just one day and it was really a good experience to be there. My comfortable stay started with Maggie's friendly and warm welcome even though it was rather a bit early check-in. The room was very clean, stylish, excellent harbour view, very close to a nice pub and so quiet inside I could have a good and comfortable sleep! The full English breakfast was also excellent and they served me just what I wanted. The taste was really good. The dining room was also clean and beautiful, just like a place where I would love to come back and stay again. One thing I felt sorry about is I stayed there one day only and had to leave there in the early morning! Next time I get the chance to visit Portsmouth I would definitely come back and stay in this place again. This is the place I would like to recommend my friends and family to stay in and enjoy their 'warm-welcome' experience.'
