Solent Hotel & Spa
Whiteley, Fareham, Hampshire, 9miles SE of Southampton, 11miles NW of Portsmouth
Spa & Leisure
The location, looking out onto the surrounding greenery, sets the scene for the spa and leisure experience at The Solent Hotel and Spa, and on a sunny day it is highly recommended that you spend a little time in the outdoor spa lounge which includes a hot tub and relaxation space. The hot tub is a private facility that comes at an extra charge and is pre-bookable through the hotel, but is well worth the additional fee for rest and relaxations, surrounded by bubbles.
Inside however, facilities include a gym and aerobics studio, pool, fibre optic steam room, whirlpool, monsoon shower, relaxation area, and a colour therapy sauna. The spa also offers a collection of treatments using Jessica and ESPA products.
Hotel & Accommodation
Nestled between mature woodland and ancient meadowland, you could be forgiven for thinking that The Solent Hotel was miles away from anywhere. Despite its escapist atmosphere, the hotel, which is part of the Thwaites collection, awarded the AA Hotel Group of The Year Award in 2016, is within easy reach of both Portsmouth and Southampton. A contemporary venue, rooms and suites range from Executive Rooms to Family suites and Four Poster Rooms, catering to a variety of visitors.
Dining is a relaxed affair, with several options open to guests throughout the day. Choose from light bites in the bar or lounge which are also open for teas, coffees and drinks; head to the Mediterranean alfresco terrace when the weather allows, for an outdoor grill; or enjoy more formal meals in The Restaurant and Bar.
