We loved finding the Hotel Portsmouth. The price was very very reasonable even with an upgrade to a deluxe queen room. It had lovely sitting rooms and our room was very nice. The service was superb - everything we needed was taken care of even an early check in after a full house and large wedding the night before. We...

In planning a weekend visit to Portsmouth we did the usual online scan of hotel sites and decided on The Hotel Portsmouth (THP) to try the boutique hotel experience, and we weren’t disappointed.

A quiet, friendly hotel with great character and a central location. The staff was helpful, especially at recommending local dining spots. The benefits of a full service hotel combined with the charm of a bed and breakfast. Don't miss the small plates breakfast!

Beautiful hotel, very clean. We stayed in a deluxe king room and there was plenty of room for the 2 of us. The hotel is centrally located, a 5 minute walk to downtown shops and restaurants. The staff is super friendly, Taylor was particularly helpful suggesting restaurants and places to shop. Look forward to another visit!
