“comfortable apartment”
Reviewed 1 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

Stayed in the apartment over the christmas period while visiting family in the area,
The apartment is warm and comfortable well equiped and nicely decorated and in a great position with southsea common only a couple of minutes walk away ( ideal for the dog!! )
We were welcomed by Gill the owner, the christmas tree, lights and mince pies and chew sticks for the dog were a pleasant suprise. it can be noisy at night with people passing the windows which are close to the pavement. The only reason I have not given this apartment 5 stars is the bathroon is a bit tired looking with bits of mould around the bath, but i certainly intend to return in 2016

We really enjoyed staying at Lauralee House, & would stay there again if we were in the area.

The location is perfect for getting around without a vehicle, Supermarket right across the road Restaurants & Shops just down the street.

The Unit was well equipped & had everything you could ask for, including a book of information on Unit & Local area.

“Great Location”
Reviewed 11 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Comfortable and cosy apartment in a great location for Southsea & Gunwhart Quays. Stayed her for the Great South Run and Southsea common just a stone throw away. Lovely welcome and tour by the owner on arrival, even a pint of fresh milk in the fridge and tea/coffee in the cupboard.
Apartment needs some TLC but didn't spoil the stay

“Great apartment in an excellent location”

This flat is in an ideal location for getting around the area. It is very helpful having a parking space and parking permits available if you have more than one car. The flat has everything you need including comfortable beds.
Booking with Gill was very easy and she was very flexible with timings in and out and made us feel very welcome. We used the flat as a base for our wedding weekend and its position was perfect for us.
Pubs to visit. Spice Island Inn, Mozarella Joes, Jolly Sailor. Close to Dockyard and Gunwarf.
Thank you Gill. Great Value for money. Good WiFi

“Nice place, great location, great acess to everything in all directions.. by walking”

**All below is personally done by us, so its all TRUE.**

Location is central

- in the vicinity of LauraLee House itself, just across the lane is a well stocked convenience store which opens at 6 AM.
- Just a short walk a few lanes away is Osborne Street with lots of eateries, some department stores, shops full of different varieties, even a Muslim Halal Meat Shop too.
- Area is safe to walk after midnight.

A bit of additional walking in all direction and it gets exciting.
and all within a comfortable, safe, leisure walking pace of about 20 minutes max.
To the North - the University & College and just across the street from the tertiary schools is Commercial St with banks, malls, shopping, eating places and more shopping places and thats where Primarks is located.
To The South - The Hard Bus Terminal, Gunwharf Quay huge mall with nice discounts. Walk is about 20mins of leisure stroll.
Taxi from The Hard to Lauralee House is less than 5 pounds, even after midnite its still less than 5 pounds and cheaper 20p than daytime.
To the East - 20 mins Walking distance to the nice shops and eateries of Albert Road and Highland Road. Just follow the main road path of Kings Road near to Lauralee House and you wont go wrong.
To the South - the Sea, and long stretches of path beside the sea for strolls, exercises, jogging, eating, entertainment with games arcades and miniature golf, and keep on walking 30 mins to reach pond of swans, museums, aquariums, nice short hills to view the sea, fort,
- and you can take Hovercraft to Isle Of Wright. A most beautiful place. One full day is not enough. Just use the public buses at Isle Of Wright and get a daily pass for groups to save cost.

If you prefer to take a bus, just walk from Lauralee House to the main roads of Kings Road to the North or Duisburg Way to the South to take the buses that should bring you to all 4 directions for a small fee. Public buses are at regular intervals.

The house itself is fantastic.
- comfortable space for kitchen if you are into marketing and then cooking. Fully stock plates and cooking utensils, Nice Living Room with dining table, TWO comfortable-size bedrooms.
- Washing Machine, electric water heater, additional huge sized boiler to supply hot water for all purposes, roomy bathroom, tv, very good WIFI speed, tv, wall heaters, racks to dry clothes, spacious fridge,
- Landlord and previous occupiers will be generous in leaving behind washing powder, coffee, tea, sugar, salt, chocolates etc etc.

Easy self-disposal of rubbish and litter just behind the unit. Area is clean and safe.

Just spend a few minutes once you arrive in doing an Orientation and Familiarisation with Gill who explains how to use equipments for whole house and how to dispose accumulated rubbish.

Gill have been very fast respond to my queries way before the actual date of our arrival.
So by the time we met, its just like old friends.

This place is beyond expectations. I know it will be good, but I am happily surprised that IT WAS THAT GOOD.
