A really fabulous place to stay, a few minutes walk from the front. Breakfast was great and we also ate in the restaurant one evening which was excellent value and scrummy. We will definitely return if only for the bath :)

2 night stay. Breakfast second to none to set you up for the day in a beautiful location. A 5 minute stroll from the sea front views from both windows, clean rooms and a roll top bath really set it off. We were welcomed and felt comfortable in our surroundings. Due to this positive experience we hope to return to... More

The rooms were grand with picturesque sea views and had great on suite facilities. The rooms, service, breakfast and... More

We spent our wedding night at the Olive Branch and couldn't have picked a more perfect place. The very kind owners Carol and Paul had decorated the room for us with Mr & Mrs chains and left a bottle of bubbly in the room which was very unexpected but greatly appreciated and made our stay even special. The room was... More
