Alverbank Country Hotel

We are a small Victorian Country House Hotel situated conveniently approximately 12 miles from Portsmouth and Southampton. The hotel overlooks the Solent and Isle of Wight which hosts the world famous " Cowes week" whilst many of the nautical attractions of the British Navy including H.M.S Victory, the Mary Rose and the Submarine Museum are ten minutes away. Local sport and leisure facilities include sailing and watersports, golf, tennis, swimming, ice skating and indoor sports.

The Alverbank House was built in 1842 for one of the central figures of early Victorian politics, J.W.Croker, credited with originating the term "Conservative" in its political sense. For several years, many of the most powerful political figures of the day, including the Duke of Wellington and the Prime Minister, Sir Robert Peel, would come down on the train from London at teatime on Friday, arriving in time for dinner.
