Don't look for the address on Portsmouth GPS. It's in Southsea, not Portsmouth! Once we found it things were better. Staff were welcoming and informative. Room is tidy, clean and warm. One and a half flights of stairs could be a problem for some. Gastro pub is 50 metres away

Thank you for your review. Southsea is an area within Portsmouth so the hotel is in both locations which can be a little confusing for those unfamiliar with the area. Sat Navs do require you to add Southsea to your search and we do add this to the top of all confirmation emails to ensure a smooth arrival at the hotel. We are pleased you enjoyed the room and our pub The Florence Arms plus found the stay good value. It is also great to read that the staff were informative during your visit. We hope to see you when next travelling through Portsmouth (Southsea!) All at Florence Suite

Lots of plus points, like the cleanliness and nicely designed room. Good selection for a freshly cooked breakfast, and nice staff. I mentioned it was my partners birthday and they slipped a birthday card under the door which was very sweet. I would definitely stay again.

How far from Mary Rose?
Not sure. It's a good 15 min walk to the shops in Southsea & Mary Rose is beyond that, I suggest you google directions on foot or alternatively book a taxi
