      Superb Hotel!”

      We have stayed in the Mercer Hotels many times but this was the first time in the Clarence and it was everything we'd hoped for. Our room was impeccable with a cheeky sunken bath in the main room with TV. Totally decadent and lovely. There was also a bar in the hotel which we liked too. The breakfast as always in the Mercer's are fantastic, we tend to go over to the Florence to have breakfast as we love the friendly, super efficient waitress there but you can also stay in the hotel and have it. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend all of the Mercer collection but if you're looking for something a little more romantic then the Clarence is fantastic.

      Whatch out for discount promises at a partner restaurant.”

      We were told that a 10% was available at the partner restaurant and we agreed to go. We ate dinner there with OK food and OK service and then upon checkout they said they would not apply the food discount because you had to sit for dinner before 7pm. We arrived at 7pm and had a drink at the bar due to the ver slow service to be seated. Just be aware of this old trick. There are plenty of good restaurants in town.

      Outstanding hotel. My partner and I loved it, the staff are fantastic and the rooms are stunning!”

      Friendliness of the staff and their attentiveness is to be commended and the food was superb. Clearly the hotel cares for its guests and we will certainly be staying at the Clarence Boutique Hotel again.

      Lovely room and boutique hotel just a couple of plumbing issues”

      Ok so the room (no.1), the one with the bath set into the floor was lovely. It was next to the front door which I thought would be noisy but we were probably the youngest, and potentially noisiest people there so it was probably good. The road looks fairly manky but it's a Quiet street for portsmouth not far from the seafront and within walking distance of where we were going (the wedgewood rooms). Only issues were the tap on the bath could only select between hot and hotter and the sink didn't drain properly as there was a load of shit blocking the plug hole, other people's hair and crap. I could see what the problem was but there was no way I was clearing it out. I told the hotel about these little issues so hopefully they will resolve them. Breakfast was good and the staff were pleasant. We would definitely stay here again. Great night out and romantic getaway

      Wonderful boutique hotel experience.”

      Staying at the Clarence Boutique Hotel was a wonderful experience leaving me with only the regret that my stay was too short. Being a vegan, I simply requested toast and jam for breakfast and was pleasantly surprised at the distinct effort made to accommodate my requirements. I was spoilt with soya milk, vegan sausages and even specialist vegan butter spread and had the most delicious vegan full breakfast. The room was spacious and immaculate and beautifully decorated and most memorable are the lovely welcoming staff, Marta, who took time to ensure I am safely parked, comfortable checked in, dinner reserved. I would definitely return again.

      Lovely find!”

      We stayed here as an anniversary celebratory trip to Portsmouth. The hotel was a great find. Very different to the student accommodation that we used to stay in! Really modern, clean and a great location for all the sightseeing we wanted to do. Can highly recommend.

      Gorgeous relaxing suite”

      We are used to small hotel rooms when traveling in the UK, but this room was so spacious, luxurious and comfortable. We didn't want to leave the room-- and we didn't have to! Amazing breakfast in bed! To wake up to a glorious tray of scrumptious waffles, bacon croissants, fruit and coffee was just the absolute pinnacle. The staff was ever so sweet and accommodating, the beautiful hotel is on a quiet street and the rooms make you feel like royalty. Would highly recommend this hotel, magnificent!
