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

This review is to thank you for being a wonderful, caring and exceptional team. Chrissie & Dawn have our love and respect for what they accomplished last year. Despite shortage of room being fully booked, they managed to... More

We booked a week's room only accommodation with sea view. When we saw our room we could have cried! The double bed was pushed up against the wall so to get out of it one of us would have had to crawl to the end of the bed or over the other occupant! Not good when you're senior citizens.There was...

Lovely sunny afternoon and our first visit to Southsea. This was the first bar we found along the front and it had with a sunny terrace. The receptionist was extremely warm and friendly. We had a couple of beers and will certainly come back and stay for a weekend.

A very basic hotel with a sea view. Breakfast comes with an added on charge of £5 pp. the breakfast is also continental. The view from the room is very good, but £60 per night without breakfast. Don't think it's fair for someone to pay an additional cost on top for breakfast.
