A wonderful flat; clean,tidy and spacious. The welcome pack of wine and pastries was much appreciated. It's a quiet area and only a five minute walk to Southsea promenade, pier and Coop store. I highly recommend the flat to all.

The flat has fantastic views and is well set-up for a comfortable and relaxing stay. I especially enjoyed watching the ferries come and go and we even saw an enormous cruise ship sail across as it headed out to Norway. Very convenient location for buses and with a co-op in the next block, no worries about running out of essentials. A 5* rating from us!

This was our 2nd time staying in the garden flat but 3rd time staying in the building( 1st was on the first floor) we absolutely love this flat,it's perfect,has everything you want and need. Is always super tidy and neet when you arrive and any "problems" resolved quickly. Always a lovley little filled basket with goodies in when you arrive that makes a super first impression.
Plenty of space,we're a family of 6,3 teens and a 10 year old and with two bathrooms and toilets it's ideal. It's so close to the beach and roughly 10,15 minutes walk to the town,plenty of food options,but all you need in the flat if you want to cook ha ha . Plenty of places to visit near by ,either by car or like us,we love to walk them. We can not wait to book for next year. Southsea and the garden flat has our hearts Gem Rich and family

Our garden flat at St Helen’s House Southsea was ideal for location and was equipped with everything you could ever wish for. Very comfortable beds, spotlessly clean & well maintained.
Full marks to all the team for making our stay so memorable. Very apt name for the company Home from Home will definitely recommend to all friends & family.
Hopefully will use again if available.

Just home from an amazing week in southsea. The garden flat Is perfect for dogs and humans alike. The gift baskets when you arrive is a lovely touch too and even one for kia the dog.
The flat itself is gorgeously decorated and spacious enough for us all and having the garden was lovely to sit in during the afternoon to relax. Nothing is too much trouble for the team either.
Just the best place to stay. All booked for next year already.

This is a lovely, well equipped property in a very convenient location. It is in the heart of Southsea, close to all attractions and also an easy walking distance from Gunwharf Quays. We were a party of 5 and found the apartment to be extremely spacious and comfortable. The host provided a generous welcome pack and the range of children's games were also well received! We were lucky enough to have wall to wall sunshine during our stay and the views over Southsea Common and the sea were amazing! Would definitely recommend this property and hope to stay again in the future.

I just don't know were to start when I say how much my family and I enjoyed out recent holiday at Southsea.
The Queens Gate apartment is perfect in every way. From the spacious living room area with 3 couches, one that is directly in front of the large bay window. The views from the bay window are breath taking. There is so much to see from that window which has direct view of Southsea Common and the Sea.

The 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms are great assets for families and couples.

Jane is an amazing host. Nothing is a problem. As soon as you need her she will sort everything out.

Would I recommend staying at Queens Gate........... that is a big definite YES! This is my 4th stay at Queens Gate now and I never get bored of staying there. Me and my family only returned yesterday and we are already looking at dates for next year.

Denise Kennedy

What a beautiful apartment. Everything we could need for a relaxed stay. Well equipped and spotlessly clean.
Close enough to all the amenities with two good pubs at the end of the street - so no cooking for me.

The welcome basket was a lovely gesture , thank you .

We hope to return to Southsea and would happily stay here again .

Stayed recently at Queensgate and found the accommodation exactly as described on the website.

The accomodation is spacious light and airy and the views over the Solent are spectacular. the apartment is large and benefits from two bathrooms. The configuration of the 3 bedrooms suited us perfectly as a 3 generation family.

it is very close to the bus stops and to the shopping centre in Southsea as well as to the attractions of Old Portsmouth.

Love the location of this really spacious accommodation.

Really well placed to enjoy the bars and restaurants in Palmerston Road as well as wonderful walks along the promenade. It was really useful to have a parking space.

The apartment was very well furnished and kitted out and we had a very enjoyable stay.

Sally - Between the beach and the shops

15 Apr 2022

We had a very enjoyable 2 month stay in the top floor 3 bed flat in St Helen's House Ja/Feb 2022. The flat was very well fitted out and had everything we needed. Jane was a very helpful and responsive host and looked after us very well. Any minor defects were fixed immediately. I was working from the flat during the day whilst Amy worked in Portsmouth, which worked out perfectly for us. The wifi was great and there were no distractons through the day. The parking space was very useful as parking in the area can be very limited and few other rentals offer this.
The flat and location is also ideal for dogs, with long walks on the beach or on the large common area.
Strongly recommend this accomodation and hope we will be back.

I only have positive things to say! We hope to be back.

A truly fantastic flat close to the seaside. The space is truly stunning and the host had even provided a small Christmas tree and fresh flowers. This flat has everything you could ever want, highly recommended.


08 Dec 2019

We have booked Jane's flat the last year and once again this year and we have had a fantastic stay in this lovely flat. Location is perfect. The flat is big enough to welcome a family. The seaview is relaxing and the kids loved watching ferries and ships through the bow-window. A few minutes walking from Southsea, Cascade and Pier. We also walked to Gunwharf quays. Kids friendly apartment. Jo and Jane were also perfect hosts. We'll come back!


29 Oct 2019

Fantastic accommodation
We have just spent a week in this property and I cannot rate it highly enough. It was spotlessly clean, and well maintained. There was everything you needed for your stay. It is in an excellent location well within easy walking distance of shops, museums, beach etc. There is a very good bus service about a minutes walk away which goes down to Historic Portsmouth / Gunwharf Quays. I would definitely stay here again.
