Stayed here on business 17th July. I have stayed in various other B&B's on Ocean road and this is by far the best! If you are looking for nicely decorated, smart, crisp, clean and friendly B&B, this is the one! Nisha and Bryan are lovely and breakfast was great!

The owner Nisha informed us very well and made us very welcome. Would definitely stay here again if we were over this way. The beach looked fantastic too which was only ten... More

I booked this hotel for my elderly aunt who is very hard to please and she had nothing but praise for this b & b, spotlessly clean and very accommodating, fantastic breakfast, great location. Would stay here again without hesitation.

As with all of my reviews I judge a place (restaurant/hotel etc) as how they treat me and my diverse family as human beings, not on some mystical objectivity rating. By my own criteria, Elmswood scores very highly. The hotel is not a Premier Inn - all of the rooms are different. we booked the small family room (a double... More

I find it impossible to find fault with this little guest house. The welcome, accommodation, helpfulness and breakfast were second to none. Loads of good places to eat and a lovely park, promenade and coastal walk. We really hope to return soon. :)

The Elmswood is one of a host of B&Bs in Ocean Road. We stayed for one night. One of the reasons my wife and I chose the Elmswood was it was willing to accept a one night booking ... many now seem to demand a two night minimum. Parking was no problem - plenty of space on the street outside.... More
