Welcome to Southsea Rocks Hotel
Our newly refurbished hotel has a tasteful and simplistic approach.
It combines excellent quality, with clean and comfortable accommodation at locally unbeatable prices, to suit everyone's budget!
Southsea Rocks opened in early 2018 and definitely sets a new standard for economically-priced hotels in the Southsea and Portsmouth area! It is situated in a quiet and attractive side street just off the impressive four-mile esplanade, which runs along the seafront.
Our location is also within walking distance of the vibrant Albert Road, Palmerston Road and Osborne Road areas with their numerous bars, restaurants, buzzing nightlife and independent shops. This makes our hotel a perfect choice for the spirited traveller and families alike. Within a stone's throw, Southsea Common regularly hosts a diverse variety of events, from food markets to kite festivals which can also be enjoyed.
Not only is the location awesome, the building itself is superb! It has a cosy hangout and lounge area to mingle in, and an outdoor courtyard with a spacious gazebo, purpose-built for relaxing.

"One of the best hotels I've been in"
I am someone that has worked in the travel industry overseas for over ten years and in UK travel retail for the past eight years, I consider myself someone who can give an honest and objective view of hotels. I can honestly say after one night staying at the Southsea Rocks hotel I am very very impressed. The staff are so helpful, the style and design of the place is very modern, the location great and overall it's one of the best hotels / BB I've been in. We had two rooms both were really spacious and even though the bathroom facilities are shared, they are also kept exceptionally clean and there are plenty to ensure you can easily access them.
I would recommend this place and if I was to visit the area again I would not stay anywhere else. Thank you Southsea Rocks 🙂
This beautifully refurbished, deceptively spacious guesthouse is wonderful. We booked 2 rooms which shared a clean lines minimalist style modern bathroom for our recent trip to Paultons Park - home of Peppa Pig World. For just £50 per room per night we got a double and a single bed in each room, a tv and Wi-Fi. The guesthouse is approximately a half hour drive from the park itself but it saved us over £200 in comparison to what the park hotels charge. We went exploring and found an amazing outlet centre with bowling and lots of restaurants just a 5 minute drive from the guesthouse - Gunwharf Quays. We will definitely return to Southsea Rocks Hotel, we have already booked for Cowes week.
"Fantastic place to stay"
What a diamond of a place! Brand new and probably in the top 3 nicest hostels I’ve ever stayed in. Just kidding. I’d say *the* nicest. The staff were lovely as can be, the lounge is stunning, the rooms and bathrooms are impeccable and the beds are actually really comfortable!! Fantastic place to stay after a night in Southsea or Portsmouth. Or for a Seaside holiday. The possibilities are endless. Thanks for a great night guys!

"Beautifully clean and fresh"
Overnight stay at this family run hotel. Beautifully clean and fresh. Friendly warm welcome. Cosy and homely atmosphere. Stones throw from the beach and esplanade which spans 4miles plus 5 mins from bars/restaurants. Room prices totally value for money. I’ll be bring my girl friends back but just as suited to families and couples. Thanks for having us x
"Have already booked to go back "
Superb, clean family run hotel in an absolutely remarkable location with just a 2 minute walk to the beach with many local attractions local as well. We all felt very welcome and the children enjoyed relaxing in the lounge area. Rooms were really fab & very spacious. We actually stayed in the disabled friendly room & found this perfect for our son and his wheelchair, Also more space than most hotels that we have stayed in. The hotel is located less than 2 miles from Gunwharf Quays designer outlet and also less than 30 minute drive from Paultons Park & Peppa Pig World. Would definitely recommend this hotel, we have already booked to go back in a few weeks as looking forward to the warmer weather and days down the beach and pier. Thanks very much Southsea Hotel x
