The properly was lovely, and close to the center of the city. It was more like a bed and breakfast without breakfast. The room was excellent and the provided amenities were very good. Though it says there is free parking, there are only 2 spaces. There is free public parking a 5 minute walk away. There are no convenience stores nearby so plan ahead and bring water and snacks if you want them.

Lovely space, just out of the way enough to be quiet, yet easy access to all that Portsmouth has to offer.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Immaculate, thoughtful touches, highly recommend.
Such a quaint, superb place! I raved over this inn for weeks. It was a super comfortable, chic space. Rooms are on the smaller side, but I didn’t mind. I loved the items for breakfast in one of the sitting areas. We were the only guests that evening (I think) and it was very quiet. It’s a couple blocks away from the main downtown area but easily walkable. The stairs are a little narrow and steep, so if that troubles you, stay on the first floor. The room was immaculate and I was so happy with the quality and value. The linens and towels were lush… so much so that I noted the brand name! We also appreciated the included on-site parking. I would def happily return next time I am in the area. The owners have thought of everything to make your stay extremely pleasant.
