The seacrest hotel overlooks the Venetian Gardens and the Solent


Situated opposite the award winning Venetian Gardens, the hotel is ideally placed for visits to all major tourist attractions including the famous Historic Dockyard and the exciting world class waterfront development of Gunwharf Quays and the Spinnaker Tower.

The Seacrest Hotel on Portsmouth's seafront is one of the few remaining privately-owned and run hotels in the city.

Recently refurbished, it is a warm, welcoming and stylish place to stay, staffed by a friendly and dedicated team.

The hotel has 28 bedrooms which all provide a mixture of single, double, triple and family accommodation, to suit a variety of budgets, all with en-suite shower or bath.

Breakfast is included in the cost of your room, there is a wide range of food avaliable for breakfast, whether you are wanting a classic full english or wanting something more sweet such as american waffles.

There is also a bar and lounge area allowing you to relax in the warmth of the cosy lounges and have the bar to help you to unwind. Socialise with your family and other guests in the convivial atmosphere and comfortable surroundings, or sit and read the paper or a book seated in one of the comfortable armchairs.

For a small charge you are welcome to bring pets (by prior arrangement). Finding pet-friendly places to stay can be a problem, but the Seacrest welcomes them as much as their owners.
