“Fascinating Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

Small charming hotel unique facilities . Excellent friendly service ,high quality food.
We stayed only one night as we returning on the ferry from Spain before travelling home.
We would definitely stay again.

Many thanks to Mary for her excellent attention.

Room Tip: Choose rooms on the 1st and 2nd floor as these are more spacious

We've stayed in two of the Mercer Collection boutique hotels - Number Four and Florence Gardens - and both have been excellent. Great staff, service and rooms.

I can't see how anyone would regret staying at one of these hotels.

Found this hotel to be lovely and clean and in a nice location for the area. Staff were excellent and the breakfast had the best choices on our week's trip. We had booked the small double room with a shower. It was very clean and suited us down to the ground for 1 night's stay. The "shower room" WAS SMALL. The sink was at the side of the wall and so small you could only wash your hands at an angle. We would stay again if in the area, but would book a larger room if it had a larger bathroom. Parking can be an issue but the staff were very accommodating for us, and they give out on street parking permits if needed. The group own about 4 hotels all nearby. A person staying in one opposite said they were kept awake due to squeaking floorboards in the room above them.

We only stayed the one night, wished we had stayed longer. The food was better than most, the cleanliness was impeccable and the staff couldn't have been more helpful...even lugging heavy bags up three flights of steps for us with a smile on their faces!

The room, decor, staff, bed- all were flawless.

It was a bit difficult to find (and we were weary) but we were thrilled when we did. From the moment we drove up (they were looking for our car! :D) we were welcomed so warmly. From the moment we stepped through the door we were impressed. Spotless, elegant, charming and comfortable- one of our favorite hotels we've ever experienced.

LOVED EVERY MINUTE.

Stayed only one night but were absolutely delighted with this hotel. Décor has been undertaken with luxury and attention to detail in mind. Rooms were quiet and beds extremely comfortable. Breakfast was excellent. Staff were friendly and helpful. All in all - couldn't find any faults. Wouldn't hesitate to stay again and would highly recommend.

Room Tip: Even the small double rooms were still comfortably spacious.

We stayed at Florence Gardens for 2 nights to celebrate our anniversary and what a fabulous place to stay. We were upgraded to a superior room which was so beautiful and really roomy.

Lovely breakfast, the buffet full english gave opportunity to choose exactly what you wanted. The staff were so attentive, bringing toast, drinks and always on hand if you wanted anything.

The mercer group have a few properties in the same area. This gives the perfect mix between the friendly small B&B (only 6 rooms here) whilst having the luxuries of a larger hotel such as an a la carte restaurant. We didn't dine at the restaurant but the menu sounded delicious.

Room Tip: Room 6 is lovely. All rooms are individually decorated, we saw a few and all looked immaculate..
