Just back from an end of summer weekend and unfortunately stayed here for two nights. All looked good on checking in. Nice welcome and nice decorated area. Huge disappointment when opening the bedroom door. Our garden shed is bigger than our sea view room. Clearly newly decorated but new sink badly chipped and shower tray left in a disgraceful condition.... More

Have just returned from 4 days at the Ocean Beach Hotel with a coach party made up of retirees, some quite elderly and/or disabled. So (probably unique?) 3-person lift was a real problem, particularly at peak times such as before and after dinner.

Hotel very good but the room (5) was very hot. We needed disabled access room and were given a family room for extra space so very good. The room was unbelievably hot and got a fan at 3.30a.m. as unable to sleep. This did not help. Food in restaurant good and pool next door excellent.
