No "welcome" on arrival. We were greeted with "here's your key" and that's it. The next morning I was greeted with a sigh and "there's the continental breakfast". No offer of anything else. Poor options for continental breakfast. Was made to feel like I was an annoyance. There was never anyone at reception and no way to know how to... More

Stayed 3 times at Oceans now and each time for some local diving. The staff are fun, friendly and go out of their way to cater for your individual needs. The rooms are very comfortable and have beautiful views. The restaurant menu has good variety and the meals are lovely.

A three day stay at this hotel where you can only get a choice of full cooked breakfast at the weekend other than that it is continental or egg and bacon with toast. The hotel had just been taken over by quality and the staff seemed to be in some disarray though were very helpful. The curtains on one window... More

Stayed here for a weekend while doing a dive course. Rooms were large and well heated. Breakfast was cheap and plentiful, decent meal for dinner and wine not too expensive. Only sight grumbles were that the pillows were those flat ones where one is too low and two is too many. Also the bathroom supplies are not replaced, so for... More

We stayed here on Friday night just gone, my Mum and I and my baby and had room 308.

Thank you, chef heated up our baby food without hesitation, thank... More

While the room facilities are modern and clean, the lack of air-conditioning made for a stifling sleepless night, even during rainy April autumn weather. However the thing that really spoilt our stay was the appalling rudeness and arrogance of one of the staff. After our early evening arrival we sat down with two other couples for a very pleasant dinner... More

The stay was a dream. Lovely breakfasts, nice dinners and great hosts. A very warm atmosphere to be in. The bed was fantastic, and very clean. Will come back sometime soon. Bring your own nibbles and wine, as its very expensive in the dairy around the corner: their is a fridge to store them in.
