We were very impressed by Port Solent. Although we remain baffled how such a small lock can handle the hundreds of yachts on a good day. The answer may lie in the fact that around 80 to 90% of recreational vessels worldwide never go to...More

Although I am not a wheelchair user I have seen accessible rooms and devices at the premier inn. This is 10 minutes from Port Solent. If you want a higher star the Marriott provides similar rooms.
