“Super sea view, and quiet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

Peak season, but we had good nights' sleep. As with all older buildings, internal walls are thick and soundproof, but just once I heard somebody walking about on the wooden floor over us. The bed was very comfortable.
Room was lovely and spacious, we had the family room at the front on the second floor. 2 comfortable seats in the bay window had an awesome view.
Breakfast has to be ordered by 9pm the evening before. It was good and tasty, however nobody came round to ask if we'd like anything extra. We found the breakfast as ordered more than adequate.
Free parking is available outside (with cctv monitoring). But there is no free daytime parking.
Overall, we really enjoyed our stay, and hope we can go again.

Room Tip: Family rooms with bay window have an awesome view.

We stayed 2 nights and had appalling weather but could not fault this B&B. The hosts seem to have everything just right for this level of accomodation. The breakfast is made to suit with faultless service.The twin beds were really comfy and the TV worked perfectly. We thought being on the ground floor it might be noisy but although it was full we were not troubled at all.. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: If like me you find stairs difficult room number 11 on the ground floor is perfect. we half expected...

This was our second visit. On both occasions, we have been very impressed with the size and cleanliness of the rooms. The owners were very friendly and welcoming and served a great breakfast.

We stopped overnight at Ocean Drive for a spur-of-the-moment weekend by the sea. We were booked into another B&B (Crystal House Hotel, just a few doors up the road) but after a bad experience there, we transferred to Ocean Drive. We were allocated a room at the back of the B&B, on the first floor with a shower cubicle in the room itself and a separate (private) toilet just outside the room. The room was immaculately clean, the bed was very comfortable and we had a good night’s sleep. Breakfast was great – traditional full English fry up, served by the friendly owners, Eileen and Keith. Tip: if you don’t want to pay for parking along the sea front, there are some residential streets behind the B&B where you can park for free. All in all, a great, reasonably priced B&B that’s just a short walk from the town centre and overlooking the sea.

We stayed here 3 nights. Eileen & Keith were great hosts, genuinely lovely people & very helpful our room was imaculate overlooked the sea. The breakfast was excellent and plentiful. As a lazy person I have never written a review, however on this occasion I feel it would be wrong not to. I would unhesitatingly recommend the Ocean Drive to any prospective traveller.
