Terrible- overpriced, loud and uncomfortable
Terrible. This hotel is ridiculously overpriced. They clearly state on their www that all rooms come with a heated bathroom floor and comfortable luxury beds. Not so. Our bathroom floor was not heated and the bed was the most uncomfortable bed I have ever slept on. I took photos of the mattress that sagged in the middle- the hotel put a thin mattress cover on it to try to disguise it. The pillows are like brick- all of them exactly them same except for the fact that some have yellow stains on them. Again I took photos. The walls are so thin that we were woken up both nights by the couple upstairs having their adult fun. The reception is not 24 hours so there is no way to report noise or problems during the night since you are there alone with no staff. It was awful. We also had no radiator in our room and the fan heater blow damp smelly air into our room. This hotel is a joke. I am an experienced luxury boutique hotel traveller having stayed in hotels all over the world. This hotel is one of the worst most overpriced hotel I have ever stayed in and I left tired, cold, damp and extremely ripped off. There is also zero parking as advertised.

Gem of a Hotel that's more like a Bed & Breakfast
This was our first trip to Southsea/Portsmouth, which turned out to be a delightful and interesting area of England (a great D-Day Museum, Royal Navy Museum, Submarine to tour through, old ships to explore, etc.) The Clarence is definitely the place to stay- very well located, within walking distance of some attractions and really if you enjoy walking it is walking distance to almost all of them. This is more of a Bed & Breakfast than a typical hotel, with various types of rooms throughout what appears to have been a residential home. Our room was up a few flights of stairs (no elevator), so keep that in mind if you have heavy luggage; rooms are also available on lower floors. However, the staff are very helpful and responsive and will give you a hand with the luggage if your room is up the stairs. The full breakfast was included and was excellent, especially the selection of breads. Our room was large, comfortable, and immaculate. Only drawback was that the en suite bathroom was up a short flight of stairs and there was no shower, only a tub with a hand-held sprayer. Hey, travel is all about getting out of your comfort zone, right? I believe other rooms have showers so specify if you wish. Would definitely stay there again.

Excellent small hotel.
Really enjoyed our stay in the Clarence. From out initial arrival to our departure the staff and owners were excellent, very helpful & friendly. The room we were given was lovely and the breakfast was terrific. Cannot recommend it highly enough.

Lovely peaceful hotel with quiet surroundings
One of a group of small hotels in the same area. Peaceful location just off Southsea promenade and 10 min walk to Southsea centre. Lovely furnishings and very comfortable. Highly recommended.
