Had relatives down in the middle of June and they had a great stay at this hotel. The room was fabulous and the breakfast was really good. This was a recommendations from them reading the reviews on Tripadvisor. I knew they would enjoy staying at this Hotel as I had received previous god reports and have been following them in Facebook. Relatives are due to visit me again inAugust so I know where they will be staying.!!

Only stayed the one night but would definitely return. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the room was very clean and smart. The full English breakfast was perfect start for the day. Highly recommend this hotel.

Excellent hotel. Warm and friendly atmosphere. Good breakfast. We did not sample dinner. The rooms are clean and well presented. The staff could not have been more helpful. All round excellent value. We would not hesitate to go again.

We stayed here for one night on our trip around the south coast. This is a great character hotel with plenty of information regarding it's interesting history.

Our room wasn't big but it was adequate and the bathroom was good. The bed was comfy. We didn't have a seaview as we had a room out the back (cheaper). There is a lift but also a few stairs to negotiate.

The location is good for a walk along the coast and to see Southsea Castle. There are a few restaurants in the area but no shops within walking distance.

We had dinner at the hotel and it was LOVELY especially since we were the only ones dining that night. The breakfast was also great.

We only stayed in Portsmouth because our London taxi driver recommended going to the outlet shops at Gunwharf Quays, but we were glad we did. This hotel is a great little find.

Service was excellent too.

Many thanks for your lovely review, we are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. However, we are so disappointed that you did not find the shops! Just a ten minute stroll from the Hotel is Palmerston Road, a lovely shopping area with two small department stores, and many chain stores, as well as Marmion Road which has lots of individual shops.

Our new Web Site should go live next week and there is a whole section on shopping and things to do in the area, so we hope that this will help our Guests to find things more easily.

Thank you again for choosing the Seacrest and we hope to welcome you back again.

This is by far one of the best small hotels my wife and I have stayed in. We were greeted by a very friendly receptionist on arrival. Formalities sorted and up to our room in the lift. The room was very welcoming, lovely decoration, very inviting looking bed, and all finished off in a very modern style. Our room had a wonderful view of the solent and the gardens opposite the hotel entrance. The bathroom was beautifully clean, with complimentary toiletries, and crisp white towels. The breakfast choice was so good, we had scrambled eggs with salmon, really nice, plus as much coffee/tea as we could drink. We meet the owner as we were leaving to return home, what a lovely lady. They have worked so hard to update this hotel to the standard at which we found it. Well Done. We will be back.

Room Tip: The sea view is worth paying for.

Thank you for your lovely review. We have been busily refurbishing the Seacrest for the past 18 months. All our communal areas and bedrooms have been fully refurbished, the staircases will be completed this winter, when the Hotel closes for Christmas. I know that the Owners, Geoffrey and Antoinette really appreciate your kind words, and have asked me to pass on their thanks. We look forward to welcoming you to the Hotel again in the future.
