My Husband Sean and I have just got married and I turned 60 a few days latter. As a gift my family paid for a week in Portsmouth which included a 24 hour stay at the Spitbank Fort Hotel. Wow, from the minute we booked in at the Fort office we were made to feel like royalty. Our bags were...

My boyfriend took me here for my birthday and I can honestly say it was the best present I've ever received! The fort is beautiful, with lots of cool history, which they tell you about on the tour. The staff were so lovely and I really liked their approach - they were always on hand when needed but gave you...

Just returned from a magical Valentine's Day / anniversary experience here after a surprise from my boyfriend... all runs like clockwork from the moment of check in.

This place is a fantastic weekend getaway. I booked this for my wife and I for our valentines treat. We went on the Saturday before valentines and took advantage of the valentines package which was 1 night stay, a bottle of champagne, lunch, a 5 course meal and breakfast. This hotel only has 8 bedrooms so it means a maximum...

Food was fantastic (you have to...

Wow, we had the best welcome for our much anticipated visit to Spitbank Fort. From start to finish the staff catered to our every need; greeting us with a glass of bubbles on arrival, delivering and talking us through the canapés on offer and serving us the most amazing Sunday lunch. The tour was so interesting and the facts were...

Before you "kick the bucket" (see the film) you must stay here. Perfect arrival and parking instructions. Exciting arrival, great and quirky ambience, excellent food and hosting. Great staff. Smaller than No Man's Fort, this is a more intimate experience. Executive chef has plans to make it even better! Downsides? This is not for those with walking disabilities. Full price...
