Harold House is a newly renovated and beautifully appointed house situated in the heart of Southsea. With 4 generous bedrooms, it can comfortably accommodate 10 guests when making use of the sofa bed in the living room.

Permits provided for on street parking with wifi and with lots of extra comforts, Harold House is a great place to stay whether you are visiting for work or pleasure.

The space
Situated in Southsea, Harold House is a beautifully refurbished, spacious 4 bedroom house. Close to the seafront and to the Southsea shopping and nightlife, we believe the accommodation is unique in its scale and comfort.

At Harold House we offer check in from 3pm and no earlier unless otherwise agreed and check out no later than 11am.

This fantastic property offers a large king size bedroom with en suite, a large double bedroom with en suite, a further double bedroom and a twin bedroom. There is a very large living area on the ground floor with two large sofas (one of which is a sofa bed that sleeps 2) and a large open plan kitchen and dining space which opens via french doors onto a patio. The dining table seats 6-8 and there are two lovely leather barstools at the island in the adjacent kitchen area.

Providing all the comforts of a modern hotel, with free wifi, flat screen smart TV, Netflix, high quality beds and furnishings and hotel quality linen, we also provide all the facilities needed to cook at home. A well equipped kitchen includes two ovens, a microwave, toaster, kettle and Nespresso coffee machine, plus all the crockery, pots and pans etc needed for the majority of dishes. There is also a dishwasher to save you having to wash it all up afterwards.

Situated in a traditional, quiet Victorian terraced street just off Albert Road, the property’s location is excellent. Parking is free on the street although it can get a bit busy in the evenings, particularly at weekends. However, its just 15 mins walk to Southsea beach and the South Parade Pier, as well as Canoe Lake which is a great area if you have kids with you. It’s only 5 mins walk to the bustling Albert Road with its vast selection of restaurants, bars, coffee shops, an eclectic mix of boutique shops and the beautiful Kings Theatre and the Westwood Rooms (live music venue).

Just a 10 min drive or taxi ride gets you to the Historic Dockyard where you can see the Mary Rose, HMS Victory and HMS Warrior plus a host of other exhibitions and to Gunwharf Quays for outlet shopping, plus more restaurants and bars and a cinema. Also in close proximity, is the Pyramids Centre Swimming Pool and Gym, Southsea Castle, D-Day Museum, Royal Marines Museum, Natural History Museum, Blue Reef Aquarium, Clarence Pier (amusement park), Southsea Common and the Skate Park.

Harold House provides a lovely, bright and airy feel that would suit families and groups of business travellers alike, as well as smaller groups who just want a bit more space. We take pride in the quality of the property and experience that we provide to you as we hope that you will want to stay with us again.
