We have just come back from a great long weekend staying at Ocean Drive. Things started well when Jo took the time to call me back immediately after she had sent her initial email, saying they were full, to tell me in person she had just had a cancellation and we could have a room.
We were met on the Friday afternoon by Jo and we were treated to a very warm welcome.
Our front room (double ensuite) overlooking the front garden and up to the hills beyond was spacious and spotlessley clean.
We opted for the "full English" on all mornings (with juice, cereal and toast to accompany) which was nicely presented and very tasty and certainly set us up for the day. I think Jo would of done us a lighter breakfast (poached egg etc) if we had asked.
The Breakfast Room was light and airy with views over the side and front gardens.
Ocean Drive is well placed for the beaches in the local area (one (Gwithian) just a few minutes drive up the road) and its only 10 minutes into Hayle and then just a short trip (7 miles or so) further on to St.Ives. (Tip for future visitors - parking is a bit of a nightmare in St Ives in peak season - get the train in from St Erth or Lelant, its a lovely 15 min ride along the coast with great views)
We would thoroughly recommend Ocean Drive (and already have done to our parents) and look forward to staying down with Jo again soon.
