Although the location might not seem obvious, inside the Florence House Hotel was really lovely! My wife (especially) was impressed by the sense of style :-) The staff were really helpful and friendly and made us quickly feel at home. Breakfast was excellent and there was a real desire to make sure we had exactly what we would like. The... More

Excellent. Beautiful rooms with very friendly and helpful staff. Good restaurant in the hotel's pub nearby. I highly recommend this high quality hotel which is in a pleasant street not far from the sea.

Stayed 2 nights in the small double room exactly what it is but served its purpose for our stay . Arrived late on Friday evening greeted by a lovely lady who showed us to our room and explained everything we needed to know . Breakfast next morning was plentiful and the waitress was very pleasant .

We celebrated the first night of our Honeymoon at Florence House before heading abroad and we can't think of anywhere better!! From the moment we were greeted at the reception desk the team could not have been more friendly or attentive. The lady who greeted us took time to find out the type of food we liked and gave us...

We stayed for 1 night in a small double. The room is small but was lovely, clean and modern. There is no air conditioning but the windows opened and provided a lovely breeze! The staff are very friendly and will go out of their way to make you feel welcome. The cooked breakfast was wonderful. It is cooked fresh to... More

I really enjoyed my 4 night stay at the FLORENCE in Portsmouth this summer! I arrived exhausted from the airport (having just flown from NYC), but - luckily- the very helpful "Ellie" at the hotel had arranged a car to pick me up from customs and whisk me away to the seaside...I am so grateful she offered to arrange this...

A great place to stay when visiting Portsmouth. Close to the castle, the sea and gardens to walk around while visiting. The rooms were spacious and very comfortable, and the cooked breakfast was lovely. The only negative is the car parking is very limited on small busy streets.

Found this little gem when hunting for a hotel near Portsmouth ferry crossing. We stayed only for one night but couldn't fault the place, easy to find, off road parking, friendly staff and lovely rooms - not massive but adequate for a couple of nights. Love that they also have L'occitane toiletries - lush!!!! As we were on an early... More

Took a bit of a gamble with Florence House, I knew nothing of the area or the chain it is part of. My partner and I were pleasantly surprised, the outside of the building is surprisingly deceptive, with a very modern feel throughout. The room was clean, contained everything we would need and came with a great shower, a big... More
