This is our first time travelling to Portsmouth and our first time staying at The Clarence Hotel. It was something special on both counts!
Paula & the team made us feel very welcome from the beginning. They have such an easy going way about them - quite unlike any other hotel we've stayed in.
The check-in was completely painless and we were issued with a parking permit for our car. We had no problem finding a space. The hotel is situated just back from the main Southsea esplanade in a nice quiet side street.
We stayed in the Monkey room and were impressed by the amount of space available. The room was spotlessly clean and the air-con was on! Very welcome for the temperature didn't dip below 25 during our stay.
The bathroom was splendid. Again very clean with a massive walk-in shower. It was just lovely.
Paula provided us with some much needed local knowledge about where to eat etc.
We went for a stroll and on our return were greeted by Jade who also filled us in about where to go etc.
When we got to our room the bed had been turned down (with a chocolate on each of our pillows) and the air-con had been switched on.
After an excellent nights sleep in the very comfortable bed we were treated to a splendid cooked breakfast.
And so it went on for the week. Nothing was too much trouble. Everyone was really friendly and helpful.
We will definitely be going back!!
