4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Although the place is a bit dated and the rooms could use a spruce up (although I understand that this is already happening with some), the friendly landlord and the proximity to the ocean make the stay worthwhile. Gus is a gregarious fellow with lots of stories to tell and a great rapport with all his guests. The breakfast in... More

My husband & I and our two boys (ages 9 and 11) stayed here for one night for a beach getaway. We had never been to Ocean Grove before and just happened to stumble on this place, and loved the location! You have to realize this is an old historic house with charm and not very modern, which may not... More

For those of you looking for updated and new..this is not the place. It's incredibly charming and adorable the way it is. The downstairs is tastefully decorated and the rooms are spacious and clean. The beds are super comfortable and the showers had nice water pressure. Gus welcomes everyone and hangs out around the house. The views from the deck... More

After leaving a B & B that I had a horrendous one night experience in, I went to the Bellevue Stratford. Not only did Gus, the owner, work with my budget (due to what I had planned to spend on the awful B & B, that I couldn't stay one more night in), but he was so welcoming and comfortable... More

Gus the owner was very welcoming and gave us all the information on the property and the location. Our room was on the 2nd floor and although the second set of stairs were steep - which is to be expected being an old house - it was do-able for even older people who can climb stairs. The room was quite... More

Very well taken care of with its original looks, the owner is always on premises and very accommodating, although at first glance we had doubts about the carpet and staircase but we were definitely wrong, the place is great we loved it.

We were visiting my daughter and son in law who live in Ocean Grove and stayed at the Belleview Stratford Inn. We were on the 3rd floor which was quite a climb as the stairs are narrow. I had my doubts at first but then it turned out to be a great place to stay. Gus, the owner, is very... More

Thank you Gus for your wonderful personality and hospitality. This is great place. I liked my private room and view of ocean .. Didn't mind the stairs.. used the outside stairs a lot and was able to sift on the top floor balcony

The B&B is a great value. Just steps from the beach, shops and restaurants, perfect spot. The owner is very accommodating and super nice. The front porch is lovely as are the balconies. We had a wonderful large room, with wonderful views of the ocean and beach and it was just what we needed for an overnight stay. I didn't... More

We searched high and low for a place that had two rooms just a few days before the 4th of July, and it seemed like the Bellevue Stratford Inn was the only place left that was reasonable. So we took the plunge and booked. We were pleasantly surprised. We were very comfortable. The common areas were pleasant and inviting. The... More
