Comfortable rooms. Seaview is lovely. Owner and staff are the best I have experienced. Hotel is placed so you can enjoy sea views and beach on one side and high street and shops to the front of hotel. Colonial bar lives up to its name, with experienced and friendly bar staff, with a beautiful sea view you never want to... More

Excellent Hotel, Very Friendly Staff. Very comfortable rooms and very clean hotel. Enjoyable evening entertainment. Food was good, lovely varied menu. Worth having a sea view room, lovely waking up to an unspoilt view of the ocean!

This hotel was comfortable, clean and in a nice area with the sea across the road. If your room is on the street side then on Saturday nights your sleep will probably be disturbed. And some of the window frames and carpets in the corridors are worn but apart from that very good overall. Food was delicious, came almost straight... More

It is true when they say that you get what you paid for. I stayed at the Ocean Hotel as part of a coach trip. The hotel is a 2 star and is well situated between the promenade and the high street. The good point is that it is very central the bad point is that it is very dated.... More
