Positive Reviews

A central location.

Portland is centrally located and there are lots of eclectic shops, restaurants, bars, pubs and popular local sights within walking distance of the property.

Small hotel means big service.

This boutique hotel is family-run and therefore, delivers a personal kind of service you won’t find in larger properties. The staff is happy to accommodate most any request and point you in the direction of popular local sights and places to dine.

This is a non-smoking hotel.

This is a non-smoking property which is great for those who don’t imbibe and like their room smelling fresh rather than second hand smoke.

Negative Reviews

Things can get noisy.

Because Portland is located on a busy road, you may find that things can get noisy, especially on nights and during the weekends. For a quieter stay, be sure to request a room at the back of the property when checking in.

The hotel needs TLC.

The furnishings here are tired and dated and bathroom fixtures are in need of replacement. The beds tend towards being soft and lumpy and the bathroom has mould in places, which is the result of an older property needing to be netter maintained.

They don’t allow pets.

Pet are not welcome here which is unfortunate for those who enjoy travelling with their favourite canine companions.
