Spitbank Fort: mid-Victorian fortress island turned into a hotel

Spitbank Fort is an offshore island fortress built in the mid-Victorian to help protect Portsmouth. It's been renovated by some savvy hoteliers who've turned it into a luxury hotel and conference centre, and it's all rather gorgeous. You can book the whole thing for retreats, weddings, etc, or just book an individual room.
