We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at The Seacrest Hotel.
All the staff were kind, friendly and helpful & looked after us very well.
We took our dog with us who was equally well cared for.
We will definitely return.

Left Cyprus to come to England for a brief visit and then going on to France.
Stayed at the Seacrest Hotel on South Parade. Beautiful setting and magnificent seaviews.
Very stylish lounge and bar and a warm welcome. Food excellent quality and
good service. Will definitely visit again when coming back to England and would
recommend it.

Room Tip: Rooms at from have a magnificent seaview

WE stayed overnight before visiting the brilliant new Mary Rose museum. The hotel had a good position with free parking, and good sea views. The bedroom was of a good size, clean with a good en-suite. Breakfast was very good with a wide choice. Overall A VERY GOOD EXPERIENCE.

Room Tip: Room 16 had a very good outlook.

Recently refurbished to a high standard. Lovely setting with a sea view. The downstairs reataurant has the choice of 1,2 or 3 courses for a reasonable price.The bedrooms are all fully equiped with a tv and hairdryer and are all en suite. The staff are always friendly and make you feel very welcome. Will continue to stay here many years to come.

I visited Portsmouth, with my elderly mum, for two days 7th-8th August, visiting my son who is at University in the town. We stayed overnight at the Seacrest Hotel and could not have been made more welcome. The owners were on site the whole time and were so welcoming. All the staff were so polite, friendly and helpful - especially at reception. The hotel is undergoing refurbishment and is looking amazing. Breakfast was excellent and I stayed filled up for the rest of the day! There is a lift to all floors - an asset for my mum. We had front room with sea view - in fact we could see the Isle of Wight. Would highly recommend this hotel and will definitely stay again. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view as rooms at back of hotel only look over the back yard and a narrow road.

I had a brilliant stay in this hotel, lovely new decor and the room was very nice, spotless with a very fresh feel to it. The bed was amazing... very comfortable and I slept very well. The shower was nice and powerful and very clean.

I found it amazing that despite being under refurbishment, the hotel was spotless. The staff were very nice and welcoming. A very nice and well stocked bar too.

The breakfast was cooked to perfection... again served by attentive, friendly and pleasant staff. I loved the fresh flowers. I loved the location.

The only negative thing I would have to say is the "No Smoked Haddock" in the breakfast menu and breakfast time ending at 09:00... Can you believe that? The bed was too comfortable for me to get up so early... Give us a break! A truly lovely and relaxing break and I will be going back... definitely!

We have just spent a most enjoyable stay in this hotel. The staff were friendly and most helpful, the room was clean, tastefully decorated with a stunning sea view.
The hotel's location is ideal for visiting all the major attractions and local hostelries,restaurants and shops
The breakfast was very good with a quick efficient service

Room Tip: Seafront rooms are recommended
