The Edwardian property The Clarence has been placed on the market by Christie + Co.
According to the boutique hotel property specialist, The Clarence is a relaxing retreat for business and leisure travellers alike, with stylish and elegantly decorated en suite rooms offering all the amenities expected from a luxury venue.
Some rooms feature ‘Aqua TV’ allowing guests the unique experience of watching TV from their sunken bath. Other unique features in the rooms include a two person hydro spa bath and under floor heading.
Catering to adults only, the Edwardian residence also offers a small, intimate restaurant with 12-16 covers, a bar area with comfortable sofas and a patio.
The multi award-winning boutique hotel is strategically located just a few hundred yards from the seafront in Southsea, Portsmouth.
Portsmouth’s Historic Dockyard, Gunwharf Quays and Spinnaker Tower lie nearby.
Tim Widdows of Christie + Co’s Winchester office comments: “We consider there is significant scope for an experienced owner/operator to invest in this opportunity and benefit from the excellent reputation the existing owners have managed to achieve.
“An area of potential expansion and improved turnover is the restaurant, which is currently not open for evening trade.”
“The hotel is currently ranked number one on Tripadvisor from 39 hotels in Portsmouth with a 97 per cent approval rating. It has won numerous accolades including the 2014 Traveller’s Choice award, and has been voted in the top 10 UK small hotels.”
Christie + Co is expecting strong interest in The Clarence, which has a freehold asking price of £895,000.
