The hotel is totally misrepresented from the pictures advertised on the website, very mediocre and overrated tired looking hotel. Rude owner, tiny stuffy room, horrible back street view. Comfortable NOT! Other staff members were nice and helpful, but had to give one star for service for the rudeness of the owner, who was the first person who "welcomed" me to... More

I was sitting at the Reception Desk of the Seacrest Hotel at midday last week. When I looked up from what I was doing, I saw before me a very attractive athletic looking lady attired in Cycle racing gear, accompanied by a very expensive looking, dirty, oily racing bicycle which she had wheeled in through the Hotel Reception Lounge with...

Very friendly and helpful staff, check in was quick and efficient and there were no problems with special dietary needs. We had a sea view room which is on the road side of the hotel but did not find it noisy in any way, in fact we slept with the windows open since we were lucky enough to be there... More

What a delight! From the onset we were given a warm welcome and offered a parking permit so no worries about parking. The rooms have recently been decorated which is evident and although on the small side, the room and bathroom were spotlessly clean. The bed linen looked elegant and the bath towels white and fluffy. We had a seaview... More

I have stayed here on may occasions and have always found staff kind and helpful. I was given a lovely recently decorated standard double at the rear of the hotel. New furnishings and bathroom were lovely and much appreciated. Great breakfast as always. Look forward to my next visit and would highly recommend to others.

So much nicer staying here than a chain Hotel. Rooms lovely, spotlessly clean. Staff really friendly. Anna really helpful & bubbly, Antoinette is a real story teller! Breakfast really tasty. Delightful spot and a really lovely walk along the seafront into Portsmouth (if you don't want to walk there are lots of frequent bus & we paid just £4 for... More

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

What a lovely hotel, staff were extremely helpful and kind. The room was clean and tidy and the en-suite shower room was spotless. My husband and I had the continental breakfast which was enough for us, and after a day site seeing in Portsmouth we had drinks in the bar at the hotel. We were on a short break to... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our Hotel. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us, and thought that the Hotel was in a great location.

We stayed for just one night in the middle of a busy week. Despite this, the staff were excellent and were happy to do that little bit extra to make our stay perfect. Nothing was too much trouble and everything was done with a smile. The basics were also well covered, the room was immaculately clean and tidy, a travel... 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.
