About Ian Hall

Hello my name is Ian Hall I am the Managing Director of a small accommodation company TravelRest Ltd.

Our ethos is to offer quality accommodation at affordable prices in interesting locations and settings.

We have many years experience in the hospitality and accommodation business and hope that our guests enjoy their experience with us time and again.

Ian Hall purchased this house in 2009

Why Ian Hall chose Portsmouth

Battery House is our first foray into holiday lettings. We fell in love with the house the moment we set eyes on the view from the roof terrace across The Solent towards the Isle of Wight as a navy frigate sailed past.

The enjoyment increased as we discovered each room from the living room to each bedroom offered more fantastic views.

Indeed where else could you lie in bed and watch so many varieties of sailing boats, ferries and container ships as they pass by?

We never tire of the variety of weather encountered from one hour to the next, sipping cocktails on the roof terrace one moment, then view an unfolding thunder storm at sea from the warmth and tranquility of the lounge.

Added to that a charming new house but within

Georgian walls we could not ask for more!

What makes this house unique

Being located right in the heart of Old Portsmouth Battery House is easily accessed by car, train and ferry.

Many of Portsmouth's historical sites are within walking distance.

There are so many attractions around this area of the South Coast from castles to cathedrals, designer shopping to navy ships. Days out to the Isle of Wight or days in observing the entrance to Portsmouth Harbour from a ring side seat!!

Southsea beach is just a stroll away for an afternoon dip followed by dinner on the roof terrace and what we think is one of, if not the best view in Portsmouth.
