B & B or Hotel ??

Posted Aug 5, 2016
This Lark Hotel is a cross between an historic B&B and present day hotel. I loved the vibe. Beds and rooms very comfy. Young staff wore many hats but were gracious and aimed to please. Absolutely loved the buffet breakfast. Finally a menu with healthy choices presented in "tapas" style. Still many choices for those needing heavier fare. Would definitely return.

Portsmouth is a beautiful city to visit and this is the perfect place to stay. The main building is absolutely gorgeous with all of the original woodwork. The staff were very pleasant, engaging, and accommodating.Breakfast was a creative masterpiece considering that they do not have a full kitchen. The bathroom was tiny but clean and functional.

Hyggelig hotell

Fantastisk mottakelse av resepsjonist. Fint hotell med nærhet til attraksjonene i Portsmouth. God frokost. Internettforbindelsen var dårlig, men det var ikke hotellets feil.

Excellent place to stay in the heart of Portsmouth. Everything within easy walking distance. Delicious breakfast treats, unique water bottles, and modern touches in a renovated building with character and nautical charm.

Close to downtown.

Great location. Incredible staff. The only problem is that is noisy. We heard doors opening and closing constantly. You could also hear everything in the room above us.

Lovely gem in the heart of downtown

This hotel exudes charm. The front common rooms with fireplaces are warm and inviting. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Forget about a boring continental breakfast, The Hotel Portsmouth serves homemade tapas style yumminess! From Banana maple oatmeal, to horseradish deviled eggs, to fresh fruit with fresh mint. The rooms were clean and the beds incredibly comfortable! All of Downtown was well within walking distance. WAY above a typical 2 star hotel, I think Expedia got that wrong!
