Check out this cracker of a deal I found on secretescapes.com – 1 night including transfers, breakfast, lunch, dinner, prosecco, a guided tour, canapés and coffee & cake (Phew!) for only £174.50 per person. Brand new to Portsmouth, the Sea Fortress Hotel otherwise known as ‘No Man’s Fort’ (4.5/5 on TripAdvisor) is a super unique place to spend a memorable night in a converted Navy sea fort.
No Man’s Fort: Private Island, Hot tubs and Bubbly
So your hotel is not just any hotel but a sea fortress conversion – ready the cannons! This 1865 sea fortress was once a defence system for the naval town of Portsmouth, but has now been converted into an ultra cool hotel just for you. For Dr Who fans the fort also has a claim to fame, featuring in 1971 episode ‘The Sea Devils’. Not only is your hotel uniquely different you shall be staying in an executive room, lavishly furnished and of course with complimentary sea views. Beyond your fantastic room the hotel has lots of quirky features, including a rooftop firepit, lighthouse, cabaret bar and resident DJ, to mention a few.
SecretEscapes don’t just settle for a unique hotel though, so your stay comes with the glamorous seal of approval. You will depart from Gunwarf Quays from the hotel’s Port Office for a quick transfer to the hotel. Upon arrival you will be greeted with prosecco (of course) before enjoying a light lunch. After this you’ll be relaxing in a rooftop hot tub, followed by pre-dinner canapés served in the atrium, all before a 3-course banquet in the Officer’s Mess, after which you will be free to enjoy the firepit on the rooftop, complete with toasted marshmallows and hot chocolate. The next morning you’ll be returning back to the Officer’s Mess for breakfast before heading back to the real world by boat.
This quirky hotel is ideal for a party venue with a difference, or romantic getaway you won’t forget in a hurry. This is a limited time offer so be sure to book today. You only need to register your email (for free) here on secretescapes.com to see the offer.
