“Annual Visit”
Reviewed 6 July 2013

My wife and myself have had a wonderful time at the Ocean Hotel & Appartments we stayed in Appartment 101 which has a wonderful view of the Prom. The appartment is very spacious and fully equiped. My wife has to use Wheelchair as walkig aid when out and about and requires space for getting into and out of car we were given the best access space in the car park which was designated as Disabled for our stay. Thank you all.

My elderly parents had a pleasant stay at the Ocean last week, they made positive comments of the reception staff being approachable, helpful and really friendly, making them feel welcome. They particularly enjoyed the breakfasts and the kitchen staff who couldn't do enough for them. Staff assisted with their luggage on their departure making an overall good impression from start to finish. No problem in booking this hotel again.

As a family of 5 (2 adults, 3 children) we often have trouble finding hotel rooms, but over the phone I was able to book an inter-connecting room for all of us, and on negotiation was even discounted from the rack rate. This was on a high floor and with a sea view and in a quiet location. Given that this hotel is a 2* rating I was pleasantly surprised by the size of the rooms, very spacious and comfortable. Furnishings and décor was a little dated but that did not concern me at all - we were there to see the sights of Southsea and Portsmouth and not spend hours in the room. Staff were very pleasant, friendly and patient with us and our children, who can be quite raucous at times as they are only aged 11, 8 and 5. The free parking was a bonus too. I would certainly recommend Ocean hotel for a 2 night, no-frills but comfortable stay to see Southsea and Portsmouth.

Room Tip: for families ask for the inter-connecting rooms as this gives you much more space

Staffs are warm, friendly, very polite, welcoming, informative and very sincere which lacks in many hotels. Facilities are spotless, all in all an amazing venue in itself.
The rooms are extremely well finished and immaculately clean.
A high level of comfort and well equipped.

I recently spent three weeks at this Hotel/Apartment complex. Dawn and her team were extremely helpful and did everything they could to help in any situation I needed. They were always very friendly, especially on the occassions when they met my 8yr old son and he even benefited from a chocolate santa or two from the Christmas Tree.
The Apartment was very spacious with lovely high ceilings, a very large bedroom and a kitchen/lounge fitted out with all mod cons including a washing machine which proved to be a godsend!
In all I have to say that I am ever so grateful for the manner in which the staff were welcoming and friendly

I stayed in Apartment 101 with a colleague whilst touring the country with Grease the Musical.

Affordable and within a ten minute walk to the theatre this was the ideal place to stay.

The staff were excellent and any small niggle was resolved immediately and with kindness and concern.

The only gripes we had were the lack of washing up liquid and tea-towels in the kitchen but when I went to the front desk we were given some washing up liquid as 'long as we returned it when we left' .... Surely easier just to provide both permanently in each apartment?

Overall a fantastic week however and great for touring theatre companies.
