We stayed here for one night in a king sized sea view room which was lovely.....we think the bed was super king sized as it was huge and very comfortable,.The view was lovely and the bathroom spotless and modern. We had stayed here before and on booking I mentioned that we were coming down to meet family for my husband's 'big' birthday'......when we checked in there was a birthday card on the table which was such a lovely touch. The breakfast was amazing with so much choice,all perfectly cooked to order.Nothing is too much trouble for any of the staff here,and we will certainly be back again before too long.

A modern room with all you would expect in a traditional seaside hotel. Easy parking outside, with permit provided by hotel make this a great place to stay when touring, but easy walking access to the centre. Good breakfast with nice range of options - proper fried bread, naughty but nice. Friendly and helpful staff.

This is an immaculate hotel with attractive rooms and decor. We had a reasonably priced double room with sea view that was lovely and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious with a reasonable choice of meals. The staff were all lovely and helpful. The hotel has a small car park at the rear for 8 cars; street-side parking is available at the front. We will stay here on our next visit.

We usually stay at chain hotels and needed a night in Portsmouth for the Uni open day. Our daughter didn't want to share a room and the Seacrest popped up on a booking sight. So glad we booked it, beautiful hotel with fabulous friendly staff. We had a suite and oh my goodness it was amazing and so clean. Had a great night's sleep too. The breakfast was one of the best we have had away and my husbands gluten free requests were no problem for them. My only regret is was it was one night, will definitely be back.
