"> 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.

Update March 2021

Dear Customer

As you will be aware the government have released its road map laying out its plan to gradually reopen shops/businesses/venues in the coming months. Whilst this is an encouraging step for most it does not change our position and we will remain closed until it is guaranteed that there will be no risk of further forced closures or imposed restrictions/rules.

As this situation is unprecedented, we are unsure when it will be safe to reopen and we will continue to defer a reopening until restrictions are relaxed and it is safe for both guests and staff.

You will appreciate the nature of the current situation and the volume of customer enquiries we are receiving at this time. We as we are a very small team 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 or sell any more vouchers during the current Coronavirus crisis.

Guests with existing bookings are advised that their deposit will be held pending a rebooking when the forts reopen – we are unable to advise of a rebook date at this time.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

The Solent Forts Team
