I had no hesitation in booking a room at the Seacrest for this visit to Portsmouth, we had stayed there twice before, and had enjoyed both visits. As before we were welcomed upon arrival, and issued with a parking permit for our car. There is a small car park behind the hotel, but we have had no problems parking outside...

This is a lovely family run hotel on the seafront at Southsea. The owners have done a great job modernising the hotel and giving it a fresh look with modern, attractive decor. It's a beautiful, interesting old building and worth reading the guest information about the fascinating history. They offer free parking in South Parade as well, which is a...

Thank you for your extremely constructive review which we are taking on board. It has not crossed our minds to put security catches on the windows at that level. The trees outside room 2 have just been cut down which has made the room much lighter but has also exposed it. We have a "window man" coming next week and...

We booked the sea view suite for a night's stopover, before heading off to catch a ferry to the Isle of Wight. Although we arrived early, so we could explore Portsmouth, the hotel gave us a parking permit, which allowed us to park outside the hotel. The location was excellent and we didn't need to drive anywhere. When we booked...

When we walked in and saw a TripAdvisor rating of 4.5 we thought we had it made. How wrong were we! The location is very good, the people friendly and helpful, but the room was dreadful. Couldn't swing a cat, the décor absolutely awful, the toilet seat broken and a struggle up and down steps with the bags. However it...

We regret you did not enjoy your overnight stay and did not approve of the professionally designed room décor. As a Victorian seaside property we have many different sized rooms. Room 21 measures approx. 10ft 6” x 13ft and whilst this is not a large room, neither is it particularly small. Our lift services all our accommodation levels and 24...

We booked a last minute break so we could have a quiet few days away. We enjoyed everything we could have wished for. Welcoming, polite, pleasant and professional staff. Clean tidy and well decorated room. Near enough to everything, we walked everywhere. The car didn't move from arrival to departure.

This is our 2nd visit to the Seacrest hotel. It was so nice last time we decided to stay Saturday and Sunday over the bank holiday weekend. We had room 6 again, nicely set up and decorated.

We booked here as we were visiting a family member nearby. We booked a dog friendly room. Their policy is actually one dog per bedroom which was a little disappointing as we have two small Jack Russells but we were booking 2 rooms and they let us have one dog per room. Obviously that's not going to work as the...

The hotel is in a prime location only a few steps to the beach. Lovely lush rooms with a view. Very clean. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Close to the beach and near Gunwharf Quays and the Historic Dockyard. Culture and retail therapy.
