A little late but nevertheless... I stayed here with a friend back in February. I was very impressed to say the least. The decor and cleanliness of the hotel was amazing. The receptionist was lovely and was very helpful when giving advice on the best places to eat and visit in Portsmouth. The beds were extremely comfortable with fresh crisp... More

We arrived early as we needed to change for an event and the staff had kindly had our room made up first as we had emailed ahead. The receptionist was polite and very helpful even helping to carry bags in from the car. We ordered lunch and fresh Panninis and coke enjoyed in the garden. The room was large and... More

Lovely hotel... Very clean and comfortable, could not fault the staff in the hotel or the hotel restaurant where we had a lovely meal. Everyone very friendly, We've never stayed in a nicer b & b and can't wait to go back.

This hotel is part of the Mercer Collection of small boutique hotels in the area. We have stayed at the Clarence and when coming back to Portsmouth thought we would try this. It's a really nice small hotel with ten bedrooms. The staff are excellent and the rooms are beautifully appointed. The lounge area is quite superb for enjoying a... More

Lovely little hotel with cosy little rooms and very comfortable bed. And it was great to have our own little garden. It was the weekend when we got engaged, so overall we were really happy with our stay as it was a nice and romantic place to celebrate. Thank you very much!

We booked this hotel as a bit of a commiseration present to ourselves after the Foo Fighters concert at Wembley was cancelled and whilst it was not on the same level as watching the biggest rock band in the world it came a close second. For the price of a boring chain hotel just down the street we stayed at... More

Stayed for one night and were very pleased with the beautifully decorated room. Nice touches throughout, such as the l'Occitane toiletries. Breakfast was delicious. No coffee-making facilities, but instead a tray with complimentary tea/coffee brought to the room.
