Reviewed 12 May 2013 via mobile

This was my eight visit to the area in a couple of years; so I have tried several different hotels and boutique b and b's.
The Number Four was by far the best and I am really looking forward to a return visit.

The room was quirky and stylish, the bed very comfortable with good quality linen and a delight after a long hard Day at work. The bathroom was stock with quality toiletries and thick towels.

Breakfast is probably one of the best in the area and I recommend going for the full fried affair. The hotel is in a nice quiet area, close to the beach and a short walk to the local bars and restaurants.

Finally, it really is the staff that make the place. Cheery, considerate and a great asset to the 4.

Well done.

As soon as I entered Number Four Boutique Hotel I knew I had chosen the right place to stay' The staff were excellent and Room service first class and nothing was to much trouble I felt totally at home .
Everywhere was clean and immaculate and I would have no hesitation in recommending
Number Four as a first class place to stay.

Stayed on a Sunday night and on arrival we were given a very warm welcome and complimentary coffee made freshly. Parked in their car park (only small, but car spaces on road directly outside). We were upgraded to a very lovely room, the bathroom large with double shower and beautifully furnished, great night's sleep. Unfortunately, for us the restaurant was closed on this evening, so we took a short walk and had a very enjoyable meal locally. Traditional breakfast choice of English or continental which was very good and served with a smile. The proprietor and the couple who manage the hotel are so passionate about what they have created and are totally focused on customer service, exceeding your expectations. Would fully recommend and definitely stay again next time we cruise.

I had a one night stopover in Portsmouth, and only needed a single room. The check in was faultless, with an extremely friendly and pleasant receptionist. The room was small, but beautifully decorated & spotlessly clean, with a comfortable single bed.

The breakfast was top quality, great choice, and another friendly staff member, who could not have been any more helpful.

I would thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Portsmouth.

Arrived late evening & only stayed one night. However everything from the decor to the breakfast was excellent. We had Room 3 which was classed 'Standard' & therefore one of the smallest. Large enough for what we required with a really comfortable bed. The bathroom though was very small & I suggest that if you are more than average size you first speak to the owners to check this point. Would certainly stay there again.

Room Tip: Room 3 has a very small bathroom.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this 2 month old property! Rooms are gorgeous, immaculately clean, with quality furnishing. Mary & Paolo were delightful; great service & they could not do enough to help us. They are an asset to the Mercer team!

Street parking is unrestricted & its an easy walk to shops in one direction or the water's edge in the other. The Restaurant has a lovely feel to it & food a good quality.

Highly recommend & wouldn't stay anywhere else in Portsmouth/Southsea. Thank you very much!!

Room Tip: Had room 4, lovely decor & great size, but small bathroom.
