Lovely period house in quiet road.

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 26 Apr 2024
The Superior Twin room was absolutely lovely, spacious and spotless. The bay sash window had privacy screens with two little windows to open and get some sea air. The bathroom was excellent. The room was just a few stairs up from a separate private entrance. The cocktail bar was sweet, and the person on reception always helpful in booking Aquacabs, which
came immediately.

Tiny areas for improvement, I would prefer bottled mineral water in the room, not bottled tap water. Also, the cooked breakfasts didn't taste wonderful, probably the oil used?

Overall, a lovely period property in a quiet setting, very close to the seafront. We reserved a parking bay in front of the hotel, for £10.

Excellent hotel with helpful staff and good food. The only drawback with the food that there was only a choice between meat based food or vegan options and, as I am a vegetarian, it would have been helpful to have been fully accommodated.

The staff took on board one of our concerns, but the other is that the wardrobe was short and not designed for garment such as dresses, skirts and trousers.

A short walk took us to Southsea rock garden and then to the promenade.

Room tip: Check on booking that you will be able to hang clothing properly.

If you are looking for friendly staff, excellent food and comfortable rooms this is definitely worth a stay.
From the time of checking in to checking out nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff. All were very accommodating.
The bedrooms are decorated very tastefully the beds so comfortable and everywhere so clean.
Breakfast…wow ! all freshly cooked and a great range to choose from.
On site parking.
We certainly enjoyed our stay here and will definitely book again on our return.

Our first experience staying at the Florence, which we thoroughly enjoyed with our little pug with us. The staff were excellent, welcoming and helpful to all three of us. Lovely room, nice and spacious, great standard of furnishings.
The breakfast was fantastic both days and can highly recommend the eggs benedict. Look forward to our next visit. John, Angela and Pablo the pug

We have just returned from Florence House Hotel. We booked this hotel as it was in walking distance of the Kings Theatre. We stayed in an executive king room (Room 3) which I could not fault. Very spacious with a comfy bed. The staff were all really helpful and efficient. We ate at the Florence Arms and, again, staff were so helpful and the food was fab. The breakfast menu was extensive and nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely be back.
