We booked at St Margaret;s Lodge at short notice for a short break. A qick telephone was smoothly dealt with in a friendly manner by Danny who also welcomed us on arrival.
We know the area well but Danny clearly knew it well and was prepared to help anyone who did not.
First impressions were of a quiet, friendly very clean hotel and these impressions were re-inforced during our stay. Our room was immaculate, and tastefully decorated and very comfortable. The bathroom had to be seen to be believed. A large very modern room with seperate bath and shower (also of ample size).
The hotel is very peaceful and we both slept well during our stay. Break fast, even on the sunday is served at sensible times to allow for an early start. The service was quiet, very efficient and friendly, the food excellent.
There is no need to risk the parking perils of Portsmouth. The bus stops are no more that two hundred yards away with excelent services into Portsmouth and to The Hard (The Historic Dockyard), the Gunwharf (Shopping) and other attractions. Even the evening service (hourly) is not a chore as it runs on time!
The seafront is only a little further away and the seafront walk to Old Portsmouth is a delight even on a cold day. The shipping and yachting activity is constant an interesting.
Old Portsmouth is fascinating and has some great pubs to explore.
This is a lovely and rrestful place to stay and can be unreservadly recommended. We shall return just as soon as we can.
