From $253

Ye Spotted Dogge is a historical Boutique Hotel in the centre of Portsmouth with beautifully decorated rooms. Sleep in antique beds, have tea in a carved wooden chair or watch TV in a gorgeous vintage sofa. Staying at Ye Spotted Dogge is an absolute treat – especially if you keep in mind that some of the rooms have spa baths in the bathroom where you and your partner can enjoy the strong jets and bubbles. You will also be staying in a house of historical significance as Ye Spotted Dogge is located in the house where the Duke of Buckingham was assassinated by John Felton.

Ye Spotted Dogge also has a great and cosy outdoor area where you can drink a glass of wine or taste a local ale. I would also recommend Ye Spotted Dogge to people who have always dreamt of taking a bath in one of those antique freestanding baths with lion paws (me!). Overall this is my absolute favourite hotel in Portsmouth!
