The Clarence Hotel - Part of The Mercer Collection

The Clarence is a multi-award-winning, adults-only boutique hotel located just a short walk from Portsmouth's seafront esplanade. This Edwardian residence has been stylishly converted to offer well-designed and individually styled rooms with a luxury bathroom. Free WiFi is also available.

If you select a breakfast inclusive rate this includes cereals, toast, Greek yogurt, juices and cafetiere of coffee/selection of teas available. Cooked breakfast options are plentiful and food is fresh and locally sourced - we offer traditional full English, Eggs Benedict, Waffles and Syrup or a simple eggs on toast. The local Gastro Pub - The Florence Arms is under a minutes walk away which serves home cooked food locally sourced.  The Clarence Boutique Hotel offers a small on-site lounge bar.

The Clarence is just a few hundred yards from the seafront and close to all of Portsmouth's major attractions, including the waterfront development of Gunwharf Quays, Spinnaker Tower and the world-famous Historic Dockyard. Both of Portsmouth's main train stations are just a 5-minute taxi journey away, and the nearest airport is a short car journey of 25 minutes (Southampton).
