“Our one night stay”
Reviewed 24 October 2013

Well this hotel we stay in for one night. What a dump. If you can not find anything else ok. This place old fashion simular to a budget hotel. Rooms small the tv the size of your wallet. Noisy all night long off the sea. No breakfast included. Or 5 pound for some white bread with jam and powder coffee The reception is dark no music no nothing. Un personell hotel no caracter at all
Nodody around in the night time. Every thing in looked. Like a cage with only one door out if you leave in the morning. Brrrrr. I take a shower in the morning and the whole thing fell off on me

Room Tip: If you have to ok. Otherwise dont

Nine of us stayed at this hotel for a long weekend away. The hotel is clean, the bathroom the same and the water piping hot. The staff are friendly and the breakfast menu is simple but very good. I wouldn't rate this hotel in the luxury class but it doesn't make any claims to be that. Only complaints are that we only had one bath towel and one hand towel for two sharing and that we had to keep asking for marmalade for our toast, these are minor issues which were resolved. If you are looking for good, clean accommodation at an affordable rate then look no further.

Room Tip: Good sea views

I stayed here for two nights in September while visiting my mum who recently moved into a assisted care home so I will be unable to stay with her anymore. I shall be coming back as I was pleased with the room and the reasonable rates and the lovely sea view.

Experts at gaining custom.

The hotel has an enviable position overlooking the sea. An older building, with high ceilings. The rooms are of very good quality for the rates, indeed I think of considerably better value than offered by many other B&B's and hotels. I would say a sensible and affordable choice for longer repeated stays.
What you cannot put a comparitive price on is the service from the owners and staff. Suffice to say that they are very well liked and respected by their customers. Always happy to get a room there.

EXCELLENT SERVICE EXCELLENT LOCATION
A Great Thank You to all at the Ocean Hotel. We stayed in an apartment for 7 months while looking for a property. The staff is extremely helpful, friendly and most caring in all circonstances. They are very accomodating always ready to help even when they are exceedingly busy. We felt at home, part of a big family, although we were happy to move to our new home, we were sad to leave those we considered friends.
We most definetely recommend the Ocean Hotel and Apartments for long or short stays.

We have stayed at this hotel for quite a few years now and have wrote a reveiw before, this year we and our grandsons stayed in a flat ,with sea veiw as usual, the flat was very big and everything was in the large kitchen, fridge, freezer oven, microwave, washing machine etc thhe whole place was spotless clean and the staff, Dawn, Crissy, Tracey annd all the other staff were all very kind and helpfuln nothing is too much trouble for any of them, the veiws are spectacular and the hotel is idealy situated very near the Bus Terminal ,what more could you want, we have over the years stayed in most of the sea veiw apartments over the years and never had any thing to complain about, we and our grandsons would not want to stay anywhere else in Southsea and when we have turned up at short notice on short stays we have always been accomodated with sea veiw rooms. .

Room Tip: All sea veiw rooms on all floors are good Flats are really big. Book early for these.
