My friend and I stayed in the 2 Star Hotel. After an initial admin error, which was quickly rectified the stay was excellent. It was £70 for a twin room, per night. Unbeatable. I used to live in the apartments, some years previously as a student. This location was superb and also enjoyable to stay, for a reunion......

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and will be looking forward to my next one there.

We arrived at these apartments for our 2 weeks stay, we were given keys to apartment 7, which was totally unsuitable, the chair in the lounge was broken, the twin/bunk room was nothing more then a prison cell. The sofa in the lounge should have been thrown out in 70's, dirty stained tables. After complaining we were put into suit 101 this was two rooms and a bathroom, with the lounge, kitchen and a single bed in one room, the other having a double bed. the sofa in this room was dirty, very stained and full of food debris, and very uncomfortable, i had to sit on the single bed the entire time, there was no freezer or freezer compartment, no curtains at the windows just office type blinds letting the light flood in from the street lights, the TV was on a slant as the stand was damaged, the wardrobe in the living room was broken we could not use it, the double bed needs a new mattress as it sinks in the middle, the cupboards and drawers were filthy and we had to clean them, the window in the bedroom had a broken hinge and we could not open it for fear it would fall in. kitchen utensils were filthy, the table was missing parts and unstable, there was nowhere to sit and eat meals. We dreaded any time we had to spend in this room, on top of this the noise both inside and out was unbearable, other people using the lift like a dumb waiter and the corridor like heathrow runway, outside is the bus depot, so a nice early rise everyday. We left after a week and did not finish our holiday. Anyone going year after year is easily pleased! don't bother complaining because it gets you nowhere! Just don't bother going buy a tent and pitch it on southsea common instead!! the sea view is good though!!

Room Tip: just dont go

Most years we come back to Portsmouth and we always rent an Atlantic apartment. This year we went to the Olympic games from Portsmouth. We love the fact the apartments are so close to the beach and Canoe Lake. Even the popular Gunwharfs shopping center is a quick drive along the beach road.
The properties are clean and well maintained. This year we did have a problem (no organization can be perfect all the time) with the toilet but it was rapidly solved by the management team. That is what I like about the Atlantic apartments, they really care about their customers. They do all of this at very competitive prices too....Thanks for a great summer holiday and see you next year!

Room Tip: Book early (around Easter for the summer)!

Just had yet another great weeks holiday at the ocean, we have had a apartment here every year for the past eight years and take our grand children with us and go down at other times and throughout the year and have room only, we cannot fault the service, cleanliness or anything else at this hotel and would not think of using any other Hotel in the area.
The management and staff are absolutely 1st class.
We have always had 'sea view' rooms and apartments and the views over the Solent are really some thing.

Two colleagues of mine and myself stayed at the Ocean Hotel & Apartments, St. Helen’s Parade, Southsea Portsmouth PO4 0RW for 9 nights in July 03-12, 2012. The hotel is nicely situated with a panoramic view, the rooms are spacious and comfortable and the staff are friendly and helpful. All this at an excellent price. We had a really pleasant stay there.
