Full description

Discover an extraordinary offshore retreat at Solent Forts, far removed from everyday life. 

These incredible man-made Victorian fortresses rest in the Solent, just off Portsmouth, and have a unique historical significance as important naval World War defences. In 2009 restoration began to transform the forts into this captivating hotel and museum experience.

Climb aboard Spitbank Fort and enter a world of history and sublime intimacy, with just nine luxurious suites decadently furnished and affording views across the Solent. Taste life at sea as you watch yachts bob on the horizon or enjoy The Crow's Nest, a perfect space flooded with natural light. After a busy day exploring, dine and drink in the vaulted splendour of the Officer's Mess and Victory Bar. There is even a wine cave and roof terrace with hot tub, sauna and fire pit, taking full advantage of this marine wonderland.

No Man's Fort is a much bigger marine playground, with 22 lavishly appointed rooms and suites, all affording those important sea views. Relax in the sauna or take in the uninterrupted views from the rooftop hot tub. Fancy something more active?  Perhaps the labyrinthine corridors at LaZer Battle in the lower deck or a Rib Ride across the waves?

A fascinating insight into British naval history, visiting Horse Sand Fort contrasts perfectly with the fort hotels, so be sure to experience the 100 original chambers and living quarters, armour-plated walls and gun carriages.
