"> Solent Forts Hotel Weather | Wind, Swell and Tide speeds

Solent Sea State

At Solent Forts the safety of our guests is paramount in all we do. Due to the unique location of our Forts, the ‘sea state’ (wind waves, tides and swell) can affect the times we are able to travel, as well as the type of boat used to get all guests to their chosen venue safely.

Although rare, it may be necessary to postpone or cancel certain events if safe transit is not possible. Due to the varying tides and currents affecting different parts of the Solent, transfers may even be possible to one Fort and not another. This means that some events may need to be cancelled while others are able to go ahead.

We will however, always do our utmost to ensure that all events run as planned.

Solent Forts Bookings - Update August 2021

As you will be aware the government have stated all restrictions will be lifted in August 2021 but have not guaranteed that restrictions could not be restored later in the year. Whilst this is encouraging for many businesses currently affected by the restrictions it does not change the Forts current position.

The Forts are a unique proposition, and present a lot of logistical challenges, as well as the normal hotel/restaurant operational requirements to meet current regulations. We also need to be aware of our obligation to the Historical significance of our properties and the need to preserve their heritage.

As this situation is unprecedented, we are unsure when it will be safe to reopen, and we will continue to defer a reopening until there is no threat of further restrictions/forced closures and it is safe for both guests and staff, and we will be able to once more offer our guests the best possible experience.

You will appreciate the nature of the current situation and the volume of customer enquiries we are receiving at this time. We are a very small team working on reduced hours and will process all enquiries as soon as possible. Please channel all enquiries through our hello@solentforts.com email address.

Please be advised

We will NOT be taking any new bookings/enquiries or sell any more vouchers at this time.

Guests with existing bookings/vouchers are advised to contact the hello@solentfports.com email box.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
