It's been far too long since I last stayed at the Clarence and I must admit, I was slightly apprehensive as it used to be so good..... Would it still be....? The answer is YES; Some of the staff may have changed but the service is still impeccable. Special mention to Natalie, with whom I spent an evening discussing everything from music to middle Eastern politics with!
This is one of the few hotels I stay in where I can be tempted with a cooked breakfast: You've got the provenance of your food all laid out on the menu and it's all cooked to order. Perfect and nearly as good as I get at home ;-)
Still the best hotel I stay in in the UK!

We stayed for 1 Sunday night in August 2014. We arrived very early (well before checkin) and were warmly welcomed and offered breakfast, tea/coffee etc. We declined breakfast but were provided teas and coffees, plus use of lounges and toilets at no cost. The rooms we were given were lovely, though we spent most of the day and night at the Victorious festival. The beds did seem especially comfortable after about 14 hours on our feet! Breakfast the next day was very good and after checkout we were offered to keep hotel parking permit while we had a walk along the beach and some lunch. All in all a very pleasant experience and great advert for independent friendly hotels

My wife and I stayed at Abbey Lodge for one night for a wedding. The owner was courteous at all times and made us feel very welcome. She was also extremely accommodating regarding a timing issue we had. The room had twin beds and was on the top floor. The room was clean, the sheets were beautifully laundered (not at all rough like some spurious commenters have said). We shared bathroom and toilet facilities with other guests but they were all clean and in good working order. Do not miss the breakfast which is freshly cooked every morning. The owner makes an effort to get real, fresh ingredients. The sausages are from the local butchers which I can vouch for, being a student in Portsmouth!
Some of the decor is slightly dated. However, if you are more interested in what the door handles look like, I would suggest you get hold of your priorities. Stay here and you will not be disappointed.

Lovely boutique hotel. Staff are all excellent, really polite and helpful.
I had the exec room which had the bath in the bedroom which was really funky. Great nights sleep too. If I had to pick one thing to change it would be turn the hearing down a little it's very warm. I never get cold so I found it quite hot but my mrs would have loved it.
