I took my Husband to Spitbank Fort for a 'big' birthday last weekend and we had a great time. It's a quirky, boutique hotel with a really fun character. We were met with a champagne reception and a tour of the fort - what is really cool is that the team positively encourage visitors to open doors, explore and generally...

We originally booked to stay so we could try out the fort ahead of possibly choosing it for our wedding venue. 12 months on and 3 cancellations later we'd been married by the time we stayed so missed out or perhaps not! Overall the experience on the fort was very good however it was completely ruined by the admin and...

Hubby booked a night there as part of our anniversary celebration. What an amazing experience! When you say in the middle of nowhere, this hotel is indeed in the middle of nowhere ...

The room and all the public areas are fantastic, comfortable and homely. Our host Kyle was funny, knowledgeable and efficient - as were all the staff. The food was absolutely incredible and even though it was a set...

A fantastic tour of the site and amazing views of a winter sunset over the Isle of Wight crowned a great evening. The rooms are superb and leaving the shell...

This was probably the nicest hotel I have visited. The room was superb, the lounge was excellent and the whole ambience was without fault. The staff were brilliant, attentive and really made an effort. Food was excellent apart from a mean second course! Excellent and informative tour upon arrival by a chap called Jamie. Nice facilities up top hot tub...

Was taken to this lovely place with my girlfriend for my 30th birthday last Saturday. I can honestly say this was one of the best experiences of my life!

What a great place. Dom the fort manager makes the stay even better with a fantastic tour detailing the history of the fort. Hot Tub in the middle of the solent, fantastic rooms, great food and of course Dom's music quiz. Would highly recommend, one night away seems like a few days relaxation in this truly unique location.
