I confess to visiting Oceans bed and breakfast in Dawlish with some trepidation, having seen some of the damning criticism on Tripadvisor. I left 24 hours later with the conclusion that one can only judge and establishment on how you find it; not as others do, although the opinion of others may still influence initial decisions. Oceans suited me because... More

Staff very good and friendly. Room was very 'tired'. But was comfortable. Parking was not available at all when I stayed. They only have a couple of spaces so I had to feed a parking meter! Tv would only work on one obscure channel and no wi-fi. In spite of all that it is not as bad as some reviews... More

Very dated, electrical wires, No full English Breakfast available, Shower leaked, no Wi-Fi, no sea view which was asked for, bed was extremely uncomfortable to the point springs in the mattress was felt. Asked for money back as I left the night to receive an abusive phone call from the owner threatening my other half!!!!!1

It was a good effort for an old guest house in decline. Some of the rooms have had some refurbishment to an average standard. Your window may not open. The wallpaper IS peeling the decor IS awful the bar does NOT open, the parking is only 4 small spaces. The bed was comfortable, most people are pleased to get out... More

Beds comfortable, breakfast good, room clean, staff very friendly and helpful. Good value. Booked twin room but was given double room which was sorted straight away. WiFi did not work on my two devices. Would use again. Excellent location for rail-rover holiday.

Made a booking thru Bookings.com and then had to cancel as my son had a clash with school. The hotel still took £75 off me even though their cancellation policy said it was ok (I have since noted they have changed it !!!!). They have no customer services and from other review now appearing it is a no go hotel... More

Always a good night sleep, a range of cereal and toast for breakfast, The owner and staff was lovely never a problem like other have... More

Owner was very unprofessional and the staff swore disgustingly. It was a heap. The towels were tiny. The shower was hot then freezing. One tiny slither if soap for 2 of us for 2 days. Was looking forward to a breakfast and was hugely disappointed. Never again!
