We stayed at Florence Gardens Boutique mid-week for two nights. The breakfast and restaurant evening meals were excellent. We ate in the garden and used the main menu for starters and the bistro menue for main course. Both were very good and not overly expensive. Service was very good.
Parking is mainly on the street but there was no problem finding a space and the hotel provided a parking permit which was good for all day and night.
Our room (No. 1) was very clean, modern, well decorated and nicely furnished although the mattress was softer than we like. The supply of toiletries, etc. was excellent. However, the room was very small and directly overlooked the garden restaurant. The weather was hot and it was necessary to have the windows open. This made the room noisy until late. The hotel states that garden diners should vacate their tables by 10:15 but this did not happen on the first night that we were there and the inside restaurant, not far below the room, was being cleared up at quite a late hour.
The location of the hotel is convenient for the historic dockyard, being only a short bus-ride away.
We liked the hotel, the staff were friendly and efficient. We would stay there again but would specify a larger room not overlooking the garden and away from the restaurant.
