We stayed here for two nights,it had everything we needed. It was clean,the staff were so friendly and helpful. The food was nice and the restaurant was run like a well oiled machine.Entertainment was better one night than the other but we had a nice evening.We went on the recommendation of friends and we were not disappointed.

We were booked into this hotel because out chosen hotel had double booked our room and so they booked us in here instead. We had a very good welcome and had been given a sea view room which was lovely. The hotel catered for coach holidays and the evening meal reflected this as they were serving many people at the...

The room was spacious (a double & single bed), spotlessly clean with good quality bedding and pillows. The staff cleaned our room immaculately each day; fresh towels... More

We stayed at the Ocean Hotel as a base for our coach tour of the Isle of Wight. Our sea facing room (worth paying extra) was spacious clean and bright. Our deal was half board, the food was exceptional, meals quickly served by very friendly waiters. The hotel gardens were well maintained with many roses and other flowers making a... More
