Superb apartment with panoramic views of the Solent and I,O,W. Spotlessly clean, very friendly staff. One of my group severely disabled and staff were very helpful in assisting her. Only discovered the Portsmouth's apartments group when the owner of the previous hotel we have stayed I, for almost 30 years, recently retired. I can strongly recommend them and will certainly...

Stayed in here over the past weekend to attend a reunion with some friends. The room was nicely furnished with a comfortable bed and had a wonderful view overlooking the sea. The staff were very helpful with showing me how around how to get in after dark. The only thing I would recommend is to put mats in the bath... More

When booking, I asked for a sea view and was not disappointed, I could barely tear myself away from watching all what was going on along the beach, the promenade and the sea, particularly after dark watching the lights out at sea! However, be prepared for the noise from the busy road down below, as someone who lives in a... More

The hotel was spotlessly clean, comfortable and quiet. the service was helpful and efficient. We will certainly go there again! It had all the facilities we required. We particularly liked having tea and coffee in the room. The carpet looked new and all the paintwork etc. looked very fresh and bright.

The hotel was spotless, could not be faulted, the room was excellent with a lovely Seaview. The Isle of Wight is only 10mins away by hovercraft. Wasn't very choppy when we went across. The weather was perfect and all in all had a great break and left feeling very relaxed. Dave and Kaz

Very nice mini break for 2 nights with my fiancée. Had a very nice room, top floor, with a sea view. The hotel was very clean and tidy, not too busy ( for the time we went ). Staff were very friendly. Worth the price tag for 2 nights. Went home feeling relaxed. Can't wait to go back

We couldn't have been more pleased with our stay at the Oceon Hotel. We had two single rooms that were a good size, spotlessly clean and offered wonderful sea views .....and all for a very reasonable price! There were numerous busses from outside the hotel but we used the number 23 that runs every 10 minutes and runs to SouthSea... More
