Staff friendly and helpful
A tad expensive
The manager was very polite and friendly even though we arrived very late. The room was spotless and very luxurious. The dressing gowns and slippers were a nice touch. Breakfast was lovely and the staff friendly an professional.
Staff and owners were amazing could not do more to make our stay enjoyable. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful, bed was so comfortable and the furnishings were top quality
Parking was a little awkward and location not ideal for sightseeing by foot.
The hospitality, the free drink on arrival, the complimentary films on demand WiFi and bottle of water in the room and also the free coffee or tea as well . All of the stay was just perfect, the full English in the morning was cooked to perfection. The staff were very welcoming and attentive and the hotel was very clean and luxurious and good value for money . Would recommend thoroughly .
The "Library" was an excellent comfortable room with high quality fittings. We hope to try other rooms in this lovely small hotel sometime.
Getting hot water to the bathroom sink seemed to take forever but was great once it arrived.
Room was very comfortable, clean - upgraded to room with a spa bath the size of my bathroom which was nicer than some 5 stars i have stayed! The staff were very attentive and little touches like welcome drink and escorting me to parking space were much appreciated. See you again next time I am in Portsmouth!
I loved my visit to The Clarence Hotel. It's perfectly situated near the sea-front. Parking was easy. The staff were approachable and attentive. The room was beautiful and luxurious for such a reasonable price. I've already personally recommended it to a friend who is staying in South Sea soon, and I'll certainly be visiting again.
Excellent hospitality, lovely room, excellent parking arrangements. All round superb!
The rooms were lovely we had a good nights sleep. I would give the hotel 5 stars.
Shame about the location.
All good from the welcome to the departure
Staff could not have been more helpful, room and decore exceptional, bed heaven after sitting for 30 hours. Breakfast and room service prompt and delicious. Would not hesitate to recommend to other travellers
Would have liked a separate shower but other rooms may have had them
The room were excellent lovely bath with TV in bathroom beds were comfortable and good choice of films to watch for free
The location, breakfast and staff where first class and a credit to the Clarence.
I am not sure how the room price of £175 can be justified, the room was adequate but no real surfaces, also it was not easy to wash hair as no shower or attachment. This was explained to me before arrival. Also I would not classify the Clarence as a hotel, it was more a bed and breakfast.
Rooms Staff Breafkast
what's not to like at the clarence?
Warm welcome and a very high quality all round
A role model for all hoteliers big or small. Fantastically warm welcome and friendly approach to guests with an amazing room, great breakfast.
Nothing to dislike
Free drink on arrival, nice breakfast, bath in the floor. Really helpful staff. Free films to watch on the TV.
The hotel was awesome. They have clearly put a lot of thought into getting details just right. I was in room 6.....l so want a bath in my bedroom ! I loved it here. Brilliant !!
The fact that l had to come back to London.........
Air con - room was beautifully cool. Fantastic nights sleep, the bed and pillows were perfect. Staff could not do enough to make our stay pleasant. Wonderful choice of breakfast, the waffles and fresh fruit were delicious.
The room only had a bath which was in the bedroom (booking.com). I would opt for a room with shower. There was quite a bit of noise in the evenings - some social, music and chatting and a generator noise. Neither continued into the night.
Staff cater to your every need and make you feel instantly welcome. Hotel is spotlessly clean and has a great feel to it. Gorgeous hotel which we will be returning to in the future
Lovely people and they were the most welcoming and helpful with a free drink on arrival free wifi and movie channel and a room to die for they even carry your cases to the room. Your treated as a VIP from the moment you arrive to the moment you leave- well recommended !
Location of hotel- there's no view and it isn't in the best area- that said it was still fantastic in every other way ! The 30 Min walk to Gun Wharf Quays is pleasant or you can get a cheap Taxi
Absolutely perfect The hotel is beautiful! The room was perfect and sooo comfy! Mark and Jenny were beyond excellent with the service they provided :) Would definitely stay again and have certainly recommended to friends/family who are looking for somewhere luxurious and peaceful to stay!
