Certificate of Excellence
The Somerset House Hotel has been restored to the original splendour of its Edwardian roots. It offers boutique rooms with free Wi-FI, just a 5-minute walk from Southsea Beach. The stylish bedrooms all feature satellite TVs and comfortable beds are adorned with Egyptian cotton sheets. The hotel is close to Southsea Common and Southsea Castle. Southsea Hovercraft Port is about 1 mile away, and is a quick way to reach the Isle of Wight. Our very popular Boutique Gastro Pub The Florence Arms is just next door

A fantastic hotel. Beautiful rooms, great position and such a helpful staff. We stayed whilst taking part in the great south run. The position could not have been better and we will return just to stay again. Thank you.
