Stayed at this hotel, what can I say. Firstly, a very warm welcome, the sea view room was beautifully decorated with lovely bedding and plenty of towels. The bathroom was new and immaculate. Breakfast in the restaurant was exceptional, fresh fruit juices, cereals, yoghurts and fresh fruit, plus a choice of full English breakfast which my hubby loved, to poached...

One of the best UK hotels visited, no negative comments whatsoever, only compliments & recommendations. The minute you walk through the entrance door is the minute you detect a smart, well managed & an efficient establishment. Everything is in place, well kept, high quality', an 'old school' environment but not in any other respect. Charming friendly staff, courteous well spoken...

Such a warm welcome at The Seacrest - everyone was very friendly and nothing was too much trouble to make sure our stay was as comfortable as possible. We had two rooms, both were spotlessly clean and uber comfortable with lovely furnishings. Gorgeous breakfast with plenty of options including veggie - we all plumped for 'full English' and it was...

Stayed in rooms 28 and 29, which have their own lounge area overlooking the seafront and was a lovely bonus for our child free weekend. Good advice from Anna about places to drink and eat close by. Apartment was spotless and we had everything we wanted. Free parking for the duration if our visit and a lovely breakfast too.

A little fed up of soulless Premier Inn we found this Beautiful hotel directly opposite the seafront in Southsea for our latest trip to Portsmouth.

There was a time when travellers would automatically choose a brand name as they knew exactly what to expect. With the advent of Trip Advisor, travellers can now consider booking independent hotels with confidence having read the reviews of previous guests. As a small independent privately run Hotel, we really do appreciate your taking the time to leave this review...

This is a gem of a hotel, A great location on the sea front with easy access to all local attractions but what really makes it special are the lovely friendly staff and the exceptional standard of everything the hotel offers. Comfortable and tastefully decorated through out, spotlessly clean, delicious breakfast can't fault it! Can't wait to go back.
