Amazing bath

Posted Jul 4, 2016
Pros: Bathtub
Cons: Some appliances on the bathtub were a bit loose and fell off
Location: Shopping centre with spinnaker tower, castle, coast
Great hotel, so cute, you wouldn't think from outside that it is a hotel. It has the best bathtub I've ever seen! Breakfast was really nice, a proper menu, very individual and not the standard boring breakfast buffet.

Pleasant Stay

Posted Jun 26, 2016
Location: Near the sea front at Southsea. A 15-30 minutes drive to the ferry port depending on the time of day/traffic.
Nice hotel with a well presented room. The staff were very helpful. Breakfast was excellent and very filling.

Great Hotel - sham about the door handle.

Posted May 4, 2016 on Hotels
Everything was great except there was one problem with the door to the toilet in bedroom 6. The handle on the door is small and round. Therefore, it is without much rotational leverage and the spring on the door catch is stiff. As a result my wife couldn't open this door and I could only open it will difficulty. The relatively small round door handle may look right from a looks point of view but it is impractical as a means of opening the door. You need to change it.

Very nice (boutique)hotel , impressive decor etc but...... didn't realise till after i had booked it there was no shower , only a bath and when the lady at the hotel opened the room door ...... A BATH AT THE END OF THE BED ,SUNKEN ....mmmm . Call me a old fuddy duddy but bath in bathroom and give me a shower..., getting up for work the following morning and running a bath kiltered my kelder. Breakfast very nice but how about a bit of low radio or tv in the background ?, i listened to a bloke burping and picking his teeth. 6/10

Boutique hotel ideal for access to gun wharf quays

Posted Feb 19, 2016
Thoroughly enjoyed an overnight stay at this charming hotel. Staff were helpful , off street parking was a bonus. Beautiful room and luxurious bathroom only slightly marred by the air heating system which was a little noisy at night but not warm enough to turn off ! Great breakfast. Would recommend and looking forward to trying out another of the sister hotels next time we escape !

Great little find in Southsea

Posted Jan 20, 2016 on Hotels
I stay at the Clarence now regulatory for business. Tucked away in a little side street right near the seafront in Southsea, it's a gem. The rooms have been exceptionally decorated, and the bathrooms particularly are superb (stay in room 5 which has the spa bath for a treat!). Large screen TVs, comfortable beds, good wifi hookup, all make the stay comfortable. Breakfast is also excellent. The service is friendly, and helpful. Hotel is a short walk (10mins) from the restaurants in Palmerston Road. Fun a Wharf is a bus ride away. Sea front is great for waking/running or just taking in the sea air. Would recommend this hotel highly
