We stayed for one night as an anniversary surprise for my husband. Very warm welcome from the staff. Even though we had arrived very early we were able to check in shortly after to a very clean nicely decorated room with a sea view overlooking well kept gardens. Everything we could possibly need was provided. Bathroom was spotless with plenty... More

Great hotel, lovely staff. Everything you need for a night away. Staff went above and beyond to help. Could see a tiny bit of the sea from our room. Don't park in the wrong place- use their car park at the rear if the hotel!

We stayed here for one night and although our room was small, it was adequate. It had everything we needed for an overnight stay including toiletries, tea, coffee and fresh towels. And a seaview was a bonus. The location is excellent and we walked along the front to Portsmouth and took a taxi back later in the evening. There is... More

Thank you so much for your wonderful review. Those were the days when there were 9 hotels just on our little terrace alone! When the present Owners took over the Seacrest they inherited the Hotel Gong! The Landlady next door in the Grove Hotel also had one - and used it! She beat it at 8.00am for "Commercial Travellers", 9.00am... More

Staff were friendly and you are made to feel welcome. Plenty of parking was available, even with the Victorious Festival and the Hotel gave us a permit for the duration of our stay. Our room was cosy and clean and the bed was comfortable. Tea and coffee facilities along with fresh cold water (bottled) were in the room. The shower... More

We stayed at the hotel for a Friday and Saturday night and loved it. Lovely hotel, lovely staff. Really accommodating of our 8 month old baby and staff made sure that everything was ok for us at every point. Beautiful breakfast and great location, highly recommend.
