The space
Ashbys Deluxe studios was a concept that evolved after our experiences during lockdown. Southsea village is a bustling melee of bars and restaurants and having opened Ashbys Accommodation to provide entertainment and fun activities our studio apartments were added to provide everything that you would need for a staycation. The focus is on wellness and relaxation which is why we have added the hot tubs and sauna and these will be complimented in July when an indoor sauna and steam room and coffee room will be added.

Ashbys Is all about providing the best guest experience for a post COVID world staycation trip. We know the world has changed so we have strict cleaning policies and all our spaces are geared up for offering facilities that guests value. Super fast wifi connectivity for those who may want a change of scenery whilst working away. Extra facilities like hot tub and sauna that can be booked exclusively.

We try to be a bit different. All our rooms are all individually styled and we try very hard to create that “Home from Home” feel, whilst also being different.

Ashbys has welcomed thousands since opening and have some of the best reviews in Portsmouth / Southsea (we recommend you just search Ashbys and look at Trip advisor / Google / Hotel.com and booking.com) to see what guests say about their stay and to get a better feel for what we offer.

hot tub and sauna can be booked exclusively for you at £25 pp per session, just go to our Facebook page and hit the book now button - https://m.facebook.com/AshbysSouthsea/

Where you’ll be

Portsmouth, England, United Kingdom

Come to Southsea for a niiiice relaxing weekend, away from the craziness of the world, enveloped in old-school British seaside charm, blended with modern restaurants and coffee shops. A popular Victorian seaside resort, Southsea is a classic example of a traditional British coastal town - from its charming piers and historic landmarks to the gravel beaches which fed its popularity as a holiday and day-trip destination. And there’s plenty to see and do. Its location in Portsmouth means it is within striking distance of the heart of one of southern England’s most important coastal cities - and the spiritual home of the British Royal Navy. Those links extend to such iconic vessels as Lord Nelson’s Napoleonic Wars flagship - HMS Victory - and the preserved timbers of the Mary Rose, the pride of King Henry VIII’s navy. Modern landmarks, such as the Spinnaker Tower with its spectacular panoramic views are also popular destinations. And those who stick to Southsea itself will also enjoy coastal promenades and historic sights such as the castle from which the town gets its name. Whether you’re a solo traveller, a couple or a family craving a seaside break, these top Airbnb vacation
