We booked a two night stay at The Clarence to round off a cruise holiday. What a fantastic stay we had, from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. Initially greeted and looked after by Paula we were made to feel very welcome indeed and enjoyed complimentary drinks in the bar. A lovely touch. We were staying in Room 2 which was immaculately presented. The whole hotel is beautifully decorated to an impressively high standard.
Staying on a bed and breakfast basis we cannot rate the breakfast highly enough. The dining room is lovely and the food simply amazing. The freshly baked bread is awesome and tastes so good it is hard to resist seconds. The choice of breakfast is plentiful and the food cooked to perfection.
The hotel location itself is interesting. Located a couple of streets back from the seafront it is quiet and for those prepared to walk it is very easy to get to Gunwharf Quay in Portsmouth. It is about 1.5 to 2 miles but walking along the seafront is great. We were able to leave our car at the hotel with a complimentary parking permit for our two day stay. I'm sure it was probably a very easy drive to attractions as well but it was good to be able to reach attractions without the need of a vehicle.
We would like to think that if we are ever in the area again we would love to stay at The Clarence again.
