“Superb”
Reviewed 5 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Fabulously appointed apartment with fantastic views over the Solent in a great location for the shops and entertainment on offer at Gunwharf, Portsmouth and Southsea. Great communication from the owners who greeted us personally and ensured all went smoothly throughout our stay. Thoroughly recommended.

“Lovely Apartment & Equally Lovely Owners”
Reviewed 3 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015
1
person found this review helpful

This is the ideal apartment for a longer a stay. The apartment is modern, light and airy, spotlessly clean and nicely appointed. The views are simply wondeful and the location can not be faulted as it is in the premier building right in the heart of Gunwharf Quays.

Underground parking is a terrific bonus, especially in the colder months. Having numerous restaurants, bars and shops within a few minutes walk is fantastic. Iconic Portsmouth tourists spots like the Mary Rose, The Victory and Hot Walls, are a leisurely 15 minute walk away.

Owners Joanne & Neeraj make you feel extremely welcome.

“Beautiful apartment, great location. Friendly owners. 100% Recommend”
Reviewed 2 February 2015 for a stay in December 2014

We booked and stayed over Christmas week.

Great apartment. Large, light and airy. Excellent sea views. Spotlessly clean and tidy.
Cannot fault the owners from time of booking to the time of leaving the apartment. A lovely couple who took the time to ensure we were settled into the apartment and our car was left in the secure underground parking space. Good communications from our first enquiry to the end of the stay
The apartment is on the 13th floor of the building. Great location to explore the area. Shopping and lots of bars and restaurants on your door step. We drove into Bournemouth on one of the days, great day out fantastic Christmas market and ice skating.
Definitely recommend renting this apartment. My only little tip would be to take a mirror. Sounds daft but there is a mirror in the bathroom and the en suite but no mirrors on any other wall or in the bedrooms. I went out and brought one as with 2 adults and 2 teenager girls I had no chance. Had to stretch the hair dryer and hair straighteners from the bedroom into the en suite shower room. However, not a great problem at all.
The concierge in The Tower Balcony was also very helpful

“Lovely apartment in a super location”
Reviewed 8 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We stayed in the apartment during our visit to Portsmouth for my husband's birthday. We were met by the property owners who took the time to ensure we were settled into the apartment and our car was left in the secure underground parking space.
The apartment was spotlessly clean and in a great location to explore the sights and a spot of retail therapy.
We would highly recommend this apartment.
