We stayed here during a family wedding. Having driven past the hotel many times since it opened we have always wondered what it looked like inside and it really was beautiful. Comfy rooms and accommodating of our young grandchildren. Thank you to the lovely girls behind reception for all their help! We really enjoyed our stay and would love to come back - especially for the breakfast!

Room Tip: we had the superior shower room, lovely quiet room

We only stayed one night in this superb hotel but wished we could have stayed longer. It was extremely comfortable with very modern furnishings and well decorated. Although breakfast was served across the road in Florence house, that was no problem. The dining room was very contemporary, as was the lounge and reception area. We did think a cooked breakfast was included in the price of the room but what we had was more than adequate. Fresh fruit salad croissants muffins toast and plenty of cereals were there to take. And the selection of quality preserves were most impressive. Staff were very attentive and we would definatley recommend this hotel.

Great hotel, stayed here 3 times on business. Comfortable quiet rooms, internet and TV worked well and delicious breakfast. Will be staying again when next in the area. Excellent staff and fantastic value for the quality of hotel. Right next to the seafront.

Room Tip: Book ahead, I have called shortly before a stay in Portsmouth only to find it was fully booked.

Beautifully decorated and very comfortable, clean rooms and extra bed made up upon arrival, close, to what we needed it to be (short drive to portsmouth harbour but can be walked to) and although I assumed the cooked breakfast was included the one that was was more than enough, it was served across the street in the florence house breakfast room from 7-9am again beautifully decorated and very friendly staff, included menu was
range of cereals and muesli
fruit juices
tea & coffee
toast (with marmite, jam, marmalade etc)
variety of fresh pastries
if you wanted a "cooked breakfast" there was a large menu to choose from starting at 6 pounds but we felt that the one included in the room rate was more than enough for our family and very nicely done too.
Would definitely recommend this place and will be staying again.

Room Tip: Had a peek at some of the rooms on the ground floor and in all honesty everyone we looked at was bea...

We have stayed on Somerset House before and have always been happy with our experience. Somerset House is now even better as we were luckily enough to stay in a newly refurbished room. We can't wait to go back soon.

From the lovely welcome to the time we left we had a fantastic time. We had one of the newly refurbished rooms, it was beautifully done and had an extremely comfy bed. The en-suite was spacious with a good range of toiletries and everything spotlessly clean. We found the staff friendly and helpful, giving us good advice on things to see and do in the area. Southsea sea front just a couple of minutes walk away. Brilliant location for everything. Excellent Hotel.

Roomy and luxurious room with a shower the size of a small country. Eager to help and utterly charming staff at check in and check out.

A pleasant ten minute walk to Palmerston Road (?) and shopping etc.
