          I'm so sorry I've just seen this! It's too far to walk. The hotel is in Southsea and you would need to get a taxi to Gunwharf.

          Hi Clarence Hotel Staff, is your hotel wheelchair friendly? If so does the acessible room have a bath tub, as showers are too painful due to the nature of my condition.
