My wife and I had a winter break at the Ocean Hotel in mid-December. Newly decorated and new vertical blinds replacing the heavy curtains, but above all the service, the pristine condition of our room, and the helpful staff were as good as ever. The location is a little distant from the centre of town, but there are regular and... More

We live in Brittany and make frequent visits to our friends and family in the south of England. Our families have expanded so can no longer put us up when we visit, so we were looking for somewhere we could stay - not just in a hotel but somewhere we could invite them to us and make them a cup...

Nine of us stayed at this hotel for a long weekend away. The hotel is clean, the bathroom the same and the water piping hot. The staff are friendly and the breakfast menu is simple but very good. I wouldn't rate this hotel in the luxury class but it doesn't make any claims to be that. Only complaints are that... More

I stayed here for two nights in September while visiting my mum who recently moved into a assisted care home so I will be unable to stay with her anymore. I shall be coming back as I was pleased with the room and the reasonable rates and the lovely sea view.

Experts at gaining custom. The hotel has an enviable position overlooking the sea. An older building, with high ceilings. The rooms are of very good quality for the rates, indeed I think of considerably better value than offered by many other B&B's and hotels. I would say a sensible and affordable choice for longer repeated stays. What you cannot put... More
