Four days in a seaside hotel, where the rooms were clean and well decorated, the breakfast was quick and good, the staff were friendly and helpful and parking was free. It is so unusual to find a city hotel and sleep well.

Staff were very welcoming and pleased to assist. Excellent food choice with dining room nicely presented. Close to sea front with gardens opposite the hotel. Bar facilities and lounge also well presented with good choice of drinks and snacks.

We booked this hotel direct for a one night stay. It is almost on the sea front and has a small rear car park, supplemented by free hotel permit street parking at the front. We arrived before the normal check-in time, and received a very friendly reception. Fortunately our room was ready, enabling us to check in straight away. The...

My wife and I stayed here for two nights in May, one before an early morning ferry, then again on a late night arrival ferry. Loved the place.It's an old building which has been lovingly restored and is spotlessly clean. The hotel has that old English seaside feel about it, which reminds me of happy childhood memories. It has a...

What a wonderful review. The Seacrest is celebrating 70 years as a "Seaside Hotel" this year. The property has always exuded a lovely homely atmosphere which the Owners have been careful to try and maintain this whilst bringing the accommodation into the 21st Century. We are glad you felt it. Sadly, it is the last of its kind on Southsea...

Very friendly staff. Lots of information should you need it. Very clean rooms and hotel generally. Beautifully decorated. Lovely Breakfasts and wide choice. Brilliant location. 2 minute walk to the sea. Fairly easy to park. All in all excellent. Would certainly stay there again. Highly recomend this hotel.

This is a fine location outside the main part of Portsmouth, in Southsea. Walking distance to the pier (amusements) and hovercraft to the Isle of Wight. It is also walking distance to historic Portsmouth and Gunwharf Quays if one is so inclined and not pressed for time (30 minutes or so). Uber and taxis are plentiful (Uber drivers are also...

I booked my room via Internet from New Zealand and had no prior knowledge of the hotel. I was greeted by charming staff who went out of their way to help me.

Absolutely of no use as business hotel but if you're old, nose blind and deaf to the many noises throughout the night it's ideal for you. The breakfast was good but staff somewhat brusque. Again good if you don't like nice things like brown sugar and ground pepper. As for the toiletries in the small bathroom I have not come...

Would recommend as room was comfortable however first night was cold and central heating appeared to be off and it was an unseasonably cold night. Staff went the extra distance to ensure we enjoyed our stay. Breakfast was brilliant with good selection range. Would highly recommend this hotel with great access to facilities along esplanade
