My husband and I have just returned from my two-day birthday treat at The Clarence. We cannot recommend it highly enough and can only echo other visitors when we say that the attention to detail is amazing, the hotel is spotlessly clean, the breakfasts are amazing and cater for whatever you desire. The rooms are exquisite, and we apparently had one of the smaller ones being 'The Teracotta Room' but it was beautiful, as was the hotel throughout. From the moment you arrive you feel completely at ease, your luggaqge is taken to your room while you enjoy a welcome drink and anything you want is catered for by such lovely, friendly staff. We'd like to say a big thank you to Carol for looking after us so well and to Paula and of course Jade. We've had two brilliant days in Portsmouth and could not have stayed in a lovelier hotel. We will definitely be back.

Room Tip: In this particular boutique hotel I think that by the very location all the rooms would be quiet and although there is A/C in the rooms there is no noise to disturb your peace.

My husband and I stayed here for our silver anniversary. The staff were lovely. The breakfast was delicious. The room was really nice. When we arrived we were greeted with a complimentary drink. Our luggage was taken up to our room. Nothing was too difficult for the staff. Would stay here again.

This is a fabulous little boutique hotel with themed rooms. Stayed over bank holiday weekend so room rates were high but that's to be expected. Lovely staff and breakfasts to die for. Highly recommended

This is a Gem of a hotel, from the welcome received when we got to the door, to paying the bill it was a pleasure to be at the Clarence.The attention to detail is second to none, if only all hotels were like this ( Every time you go away ) the room was great and we could not have been looked after better it will not be long until we ( Come back and stay )

I have been staying in the Clarence hotel regularly for the last few months and have been so happy with the service and standard from the team that I feel compelled to write this review. The friendly welcome received and attention to detail that this hotel provides is absolutely superb. The rooms are fantastic, the food is the best I have tasted and the friendly nature of all the staff is of the highest standard. There is only one place that I will stay from now on when i'm in this area and this hotel is it... It even has some off street parking if you manage to get in early enough.

Room Tip: All rooms are good
