Positive Reviews

Excellent staff.

Staff at Seacrest Hotel are friendly and welcoming, providing service with a smile. They think about what guests may need and do not give the impression that anything is too much trouble. They are happy to give local advice and make arrangements for guests.

A delicious breakfast.

Many guests say how much they enjoy breakfast at Seacrest Hotel. The reviews say it is freshly made, tasty, and very well cooked. Better still for a delicious plate of food, the portions are said to be plentiful which can only be a good thing!

Fantastic location with sea-views.

The location of Seacrest Hotel is highly rated by guests. The hotel enjoys stunning sea-views, which is great for guests when they open the curtains on a morning. The fact the hotel is close to the beach, and near to Southsea Castle too, is also a bonus, as is the fact it is not far from activities and amenities of Southsea.

Negative Reviews

No option for lunch or evening meal.

This negative comment is in some ways a back-handed compliment, but bearing in mind breakfast at Seacrest Hotel is so well-regarded, some guests have expressed disappointment that the hotel does not also do meals for lunch or dinner. However, there are several popular restaurants available within walking distance where guests can dine on an evening.

Some rooms are on the small side.

While the rooms at Seacrest Hotel are described as being comfortable, guests have suggested that some rooms are on the small side, including the en-suite bathroom, and at best might be described as ‘cozy’. This has been an issue for some.

Overly noisy lift.

The busy lift is said to be quite noisy, which means that rooms nearby can receive some unavoidable disturbance until late into the evening.
