Nice quaint hotel. The staff were the best, they were friendly, helpful and make our stay better. The hotel was clean and the view is beautiful. Some of the linen and towels can use some updating. Nice new faucets and sinks in the bathroom but the shower didn’t drain well and the ceiling had a leak in our bathroom. There is a mini fridge and filters water was always available. There was also a kettle and tea bags provided. New television with a lot of available tv stations. The Wi-Fi sucked, and was constantly dropping. It worked well for one day only but the connection dropped frequently. The hotel has a restaurant and the food was really good. The food was Americana and no local food but most days local juices were freshly made. Breakfast was provided daily, the omelettes were great! The hotel has a nice pool however sometimes it may not be available because at times it is rented out for parties. Overall it was good!

5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
What a place! This small property only has 5 rooms, all with hammocks and balcony space overlooking the sea. Wifi and A/C worked great throughout my stay (though I didn't need to use the a/c very often). Delicious free breakfast and other meals available on request, with menus changed daily based on culinary inclinations of chefs. Special shout out to Tammy and Sabrina for the tender loving care infused in all their delicious meals! Picard beach and several eating options are about a 15 minute walk, though note, the property is high up a steep hill, so not recommended for walking if you're not particularly in shape nor if lugging heavy luggage. Overall, a fantastic stay.

The champs had a spectacular view that you must eat or stay at to view Portsmouth. The chef and hotel staff were all nice and helpful. Able to get us taxi when needed and arrived to get us to and from our destination.
