Thank you for your lovely review. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed using the new smart TV which has recently been installed in all our bedrooms and appear to be very popular with Guests. We hope you will come back and stay again one day.

We stayed here overnight as we were attending a party nearby. The staff were excellent in helping us find the location we needed. Room spotless but small, we were warned of this but we opted for the cheaper option as we would not be in the room for long. Well placed for all the Southsea attractions. Good basic menu, well cooked.
The owner checked that we had been happy with everything and so I took the opportunity to point out that the confirmation e mail did not include the address or phone number of the Hotel. She said this would be rectified in future.

Room Tip: Check on the size and location of room with helpful staff when booking

Many thanks for taking the time to review our hotel. Antoinette has asked me to make sure that we include an address or a phone number at least when we send out confirmation e-mail. We are pleased that you found our location to be a good one, and hope to be able to welcome you to the Seacrest again one day.

The Seacrest Hotel was very welcoming and we found that the staff could not do enough for you. The location was excellent, just 1 minute from the beach. We were given parking permits and managed to park right outside the hotel and didn't use the car for the five days that we stayed. We could walk to Gunwharf Quays within 30 minutes and it was an excellent walk along the coastal path. The breakfast choice was excellent and the food was too. The room was spotless with complimentary tea, coffee etc. and some basic toiletries. A very good quality smart TV was in the room so we had internet access and also free Wi-Fi as we took our laptop. We could order sandwiches to our room when we felt a little peckish. All the staff were very very friendly and very very helpful. We will be staying at the Seacrest Hotel again soon.

It was a pleasure to look after you during you stay with us, and we look forward to seeing you again when you come down (or is it up?) to Portsmouth for the Victorian Christmas Market. May I take this opportunity of thanking you for your kind review, which is very much appreciated by all of us here.

We spent 3 nights at the seacrest and have stayed here before. The refurbishment has been well done to a high standard. There is free parking which is a bonus. It's close to all the main attractions and you can walk to most of them. Staff are very friendly and helpful.

It is always nice to welcome back Guests who have stayed with us before, especially when they make such lovely comments about our refurbishment. The Owners have been back at the Hotel for 18 months now, and in this time, they have striven to make the Seacrest the very best that it can be, with new communal areas, fresh new shiny bathrooms and bright new comfortable bedrooms. This Christmas, we will completely refurbish the stairways, which will improve the look of the Hotel yet again. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us, and we look forward to welcoming you to the Hotel again. Thank you for your lovely review.

We find this a great hotel, its very english the beds are good. Are room was not the biggest we have ever seen, but big enough.
We could park at the back of the hotel, on a closed (at night) parking.

Restaurants are within walking distance and when you walk for 25 minutes, you find more restaurants and shops in Gunwarf Quays.

Super!
