Stayed here for a birthday treat last year and it was fantastic. It's a stunning boutique hotel, everything is beautifully designed and the staff are fabulous and incredibly helpful. We were made to feel very welcome when we arrived. The rooms feel very unique and individual, and all the decor is very decadent and luxurious (I heard that the furniture...

We have just spent two nights here. The bed was extremely comfortable. We were on the ground floor in room seven. We were occasionally disturbed by people coming in through the front door but it wasn't really a problem. The breakfast which was in the building next door called the kitchen was lovely. Lots of choice and very friendly staff....

I'm back, yes ladies I'm back to the best hotel suites in Southsea. For the last 6 weeks or so, I was doing the rounds with other local hotels in Southsea and I can confidently confirm that there is none of those that I have visited and stayed in thus far that meets the standards offered by the Mercer collection....

very comfortable, clean and staff very friendly. Food choice excellent. Staff went out of their way to accommodate food allergies. The location of the venue is very convenient to explore Southsea and Portsmouth's attractions.

My wife and I stayed overnight. We were greeted by Mary, who could not have been more friendly or more helpful. She showed us to our beautiful room and gave us a parking permit allowing us free parking in the road outside (plenty of spaces). Everything we needed was in the room and the layout and comfort was perfect. Breakfast...

My partner and I stayed here for the weekend the other week and it was really nice. Relatively easy to find, parking is ok (they give you a parking permit) but finding a space can be a pain. The hotel is broken up into three or so different buildings. The breakfasts were really nice and the staff were very polite,...

We used this place a year ago and were so impressed we decided to use it as the default location for stays in the area. It's handy for the bus to Gunwharf Quays and the shops in Southsea. We were not disappointed, the room was well appointed and comfortable and the staff were helpful and obliging. The breakfasts were excellent...
