Thank you for your lovely review. There is always so much going on in Portsmouth, summer and winter, quite apart from the Historic Dockyard and all our other attractions. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay in Portsmouth and that the Seacrest Hotel was able to contribute to it. More

Lovely hotel. We had a room facing the seafront which was very clean. We had an evening meal before going out and the food was excellent. We were able to get wifi in the room which seems to be an impossible achievement for some hotels. Staff we friendly and welcoming. We would definitely stay again.

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...
