All our properties are located within residential areas so we do have neighbours whom we need to consider. If you feel you could comfortably monitor noise levels (in particular out in the gardens and outside areas into the evenings) then we would love to have you stay and have had countless gatherings who have had a great time with us at our properties. If however you feel that it would not be possible to monitor noise levels, then we would have to recommend you consider something more rural, without neighbours.

Century House is a pleasant, clean and bright property

Century House is a pleasant, clean and bright property in a good location for exploring Portsmouth and Southampton.  The kitchen was well stocked, the accommodation comfortable and the neighbourhood quiet. A highlight each morning was taking the dog for a walk in the local park overlooking the Spinnaker Tower and the Royal Navy's two new aircraft carriers. Area-wise, we mainly explored the historic Portsmouth docks and Spinnaker Tower, Southampton West Quay and the University as our daughter hopes to go there later this year. We did a trip to Portchester Castle towards the end of our stay which was a worth a mention.  The naval aspect of our week gave this holiday a very distinctive focus, and it is a unique selling point of the area. Many thanks to you and the whole team for making our stay in Gosport so welcoming and comfortable. The house worked brilliantly for our family of 6. Check in was very helpful and straightforward.

Century House, Gosport review

Great base for exploring the area.  Century House was very well equipped and the garden was lovely, we enjoyed the hired hot tub too.  Table tennis/pool table was great for the kids and all of us on rainy days. We had an enjoyable trip to Marwell Zoo and to the Isle of Wight plus did lots of local walks from the house. The Jolly Roger around the corner was a great local pub and Lee on Solent was worth a visit. All communication with Complete Holiday Homes was good and any issues we had were dealt with promptly.  We as a group had never visited the area previously and knew little about it though we would definitely visit again.

Good location

We found Century House a good let and well positioned for visiting the local area, whether by car or walking in to Gosport.
