“Good variety”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 September 2013 via mobile

There is a good variety of shops here as well as a large cinema and several places to eat. The restaurants overlooking the waterfront and the royal yacht Britannia have a fantastic view for diners. The shopping centre is also well served by the bus routes.

“Good for shopping and eating”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2013

There are plenty of buses running to the Ocean Terminal, which is a combination of shopping, cinemas, restaurants and the Royal Yacht Britannia (now a tourist attraction). There is plenty to occupy half a day, and views across the docks and waterfront. The shops are a mixture of large (Debenhams, M&S Food) and small (Baxters has an interesting collection of stuff, as does the Whisky Shop!). Most of the time it is not crowded.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2013 via mobile

You can visit the Britannia, shop and have your meals at Ocean terminal. See the historical Britannia used by Queen Elizabeth ll for her round the world trip. Try the Spa or watch a movie if you more time to spare.

“Vue Cinema Ocean Terminal”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2013

This is the first time we have been to a vue, as we have a cinema delux in Leicester, back to my review the prices were a lot more expensive then others a £1.70 extra per person for better seats that were not that much better, when we sat down to what we thought was the film we had 15mins of normal tv adverts the stuff you would find on itv, so considering the money they will be making from these adverts the tickets should be a lot less. The cinema was clean the staff didn't do anything more that a tickets please or what do you want, all in all the film was good but the surroundings were a let down.

“autodoom not autogroom at Ocean Terminal!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2013

Autogroom valeting operate from the red car park at Ocean Terminal. I dropped my car off this morning and although the valet was ok (not fantastic just ok) my car had also acquired a few scratches that had not been there before! When I pointed this out to the staff all I got was "we do not do scratches" followed up by another staff member gesticulating & shouting loudly in another language at me & walking away! DO NOT risk your car here - unless you don't mind scratches & very rude service - I won't be back & have told all my friends about it too.
