We stayed one night at this hotel as my daughter was running in the marathon. This is a proper Victorian seaside hotel so if you want something very modern and air conditioned think again. The room was not big but very comfy, everything was very clean and the staff very helpful. The room was a bit hot so - we...

We stayed for one night in July after an Isle of Wight trip and wished we could have stayed longer. We had a lovely room with a sea view; although quite small it was bright and airy with a nice bathroom with a walk-in shower. We had a sneaky look in the vacant suite next door which was beautiful, perfect...

We stayed at the Seacrest a few weeks ago. It was a lovely cosy, welcoming place and the Xmas decorations in the foyer were magical. We went for one of the cheapest rooms, as we were only staying for one night but it was lovely room, small but perfectly formed with a comfy bed. We had requested a quiet room,...

We stayed at this lovely hotel for a long weekend christmas shopping break. the hotel looked very festive and we received a very warm welcome when we checked in, which continued throughout our stay. Our suite was exceptional and very warm and comfy, would highly recommend.

We've just enjoyed a weekend at the Seacrest. The hotel is situated on the seafront, which was ideal for me, it meant that I could leave the car parked up and walk to the pubs, town and shopping malls. Antoinette and her staff were very friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was nicely done and always served with a smile. The room...
