I had booked for two nights at The Florence however upon arrival I was informed we would be staying over the road at The Somerset but would be returning to The Florence for breakfast.

I stayed at the Florence for 2 nights and found it to be one of the loveliest, most friendly, well appointed boutique hotels I've ever stayed at. I had a large room at the top of the property which had a desk perfect for working at and a sofa (and king size bed!) for relaxing on: the perfect combination! The...

Stayed two nights to take part in the Great South Run. Had no idea how close the hotel is to the start/finish line. Lovely atmosphere with mainly other runners, sharing our running stories/finishing times. Had a comfy, spacious room and breakfast and times well catered for the serious joggers taking part in the run. Well done to manager, Ellie and...

Enjoyed a one night stay in Southsea. The room's decor was modern (with an old fashioned theme) and clean, the shower was very powerful, the breakfast was first class, as was the service throughout. Rooms were quiet We would definitely stay there again.

Stayed here for 2 nights. Very comfortable rooms and beds, beautifully decorated, excellent shower, lovely fluffy towels. Staff were helpful and friendly.

I recently stayed and was impressed by the cleanliness of the rooms etc but I thought it was pretty much a standard B&B. The claim of free parking is slightly misleading as they simply give you a permit to park legally out on the street if you can find a spot near the hotel. I parked about fifty metres away...
