“Top Class,Beautiful People,Just Book it....”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

Well myself and my friend came to stay in the Ocean Inn for a few nights and we booked a Harbour View Bungalow.
What can i say,the owner Robert was one of the nicest guys you could meet,upon a very fast check in,we were informed that his lovely mothers birthday party was that night and that we were invited to come for food and drink; we were thinking to ourselves,this is great,what a nice place.We made our way to the bungalow and it was superb compared to the jolly beach hotel that we just came from which was not the best.The views were to die for and the whole hotel/Inn was imaculate clean.We had great food and drinks that night and made our way to the harbour later on for some more drinks.
We are well travelled as we travel a lot abroad for work and pleasure and this one of the top places i have stayed.The smell in the evening when the sun goes down of the plants and flowers is just beautiful.
Advice to anyone wanting a lovely place with friendly people,you can get better than robert and his team and when we go back again,this will be the place we will go and recommend to family and friends.
Top notch ,friendly place ,you can tell where Robert gets his easy going ways and friendliness from;his lovely mother.

Room Tip: Book a Bungalow with Harbour View,you wont be disappointed

We are 2 single girl friends and wanted to be away from the resort all-in couples experience! This was our 2nd visit to Ocean Inn, it was so good in 2012 we came back. The hotel overlooks the fantastic view of English Harbour, amid beautiful colourful plants and trees and tiny birds. We stayed in one of the cottages, with panoramic view and small kitchen, really homely. There's a delightful small pool, cleaned everyday and shady terraces. The people that stay are an interesting mix too! Robert is lovely and so welcoming, it was great to see him and his team again. The honesty bar is a great touch too. Breakfast is basic - fruit, yoghurts and pastries. It's a short walk down to Nelsons dockyard and there is an eclectic mix of restaurants - local, French, fusion and so on, nearly all good, some excellent.
All in all, Ocean Inn is a wonderful find, highly recommended.

The ocean inn is a lovely little place, the owner Robert is very welcoming and helpful, the view is absolutely amazing. The rooms are basic but very clean, I would definetly recommend choosing a private cottage room, the rooms in the main house arent quite as nice and they have a private view. Also breakfast is slightly different, no cooked breakfast just pastrys in packets, nice but not what most people are used to, but it was ok for us. The location is good, two mins from english harbour which was good for us as my husband works on a boat, and plenty of restaurants nearby. Thankyou for a lovely stay!

Room Tip: choose private cottages

My husband and I are just back from a short stay at the Ocean Inn, English Harbour. We only stayed one night, trying to make connections between the islands and Miami, but Robert at the Ocean Inn welcomed us like we were old friends. He has taken over the running of Ocean Inn after the sudden death of his Dad. Robert has been making continuous renovations to the property as needed. He quickly showed us to our room at 10am, and then he showed us the “honor” bar. The Ocean Inn is perched on the hill, so there are spectacular views of English Harbour and Nelson’s Dockyard. Ocean Inn is centrally located. After having a cool drink by the pool, Robert directed us to the closest beach. Pigeon Point is a lovely white sand beach that is only about a 10-15 min easy walk. There are many restaurants in English Harbour where one can walk to. It is just a quick uphill cab ride to the Sunday concert at Shirley Heights. The Ocean Inn is a great, centrally located small hotel, with a lovely ownership. Accommodations are single rooms with bathrooms that are part of the main building and then individual free standing “cottage” type rooms, with bathrooms, that are scattered on the hill around the pool area. We hope to return for a longer stay with you.
All the best to you Robert. Thanks.

I have stayed in several hotels in the area, including one three times the price, and all things considered you cannot do better than the Ocean Inn: view, cleanliness, friendliness, quiet, location...and of course, a great price.
Everything is 'adequate', compared to other hotels (except the view) but all in all, it has everything you need.
Robert is always quick with a smile and a helping hand, whatever you need. Exceptional value overall.

I stayed here for 5 nights in May.
Away from the all-inclusive (and gated) resorts there is not a lot of choice in English Harbour. Ocean Inn has great views of the harbour. If you are choosing a room without a view you might do better elsewhere. My "cottage" had a reasonable size room with all the essentials and a good shower. This was a quiet and restful place. It has a small pool.
Breakfast was a modest affair.
For a small establishment it was curiously not very welcoming, and it was lacking in atmosphere.

I stayed at the Ocean Inn for one night before flying to Barbados and spending two nights at the Barbados Hilton. And the Ocean Inn is certainly not the Barbados Hilton: if you're looking for a chain hotel with a big pool and a beach and modern rooms, the Ocean Inn is not for you.

Buuuuuut, with all that said, my wife and I had a very good time at the Ocean Inn. The staff was very friendly, the view was amazing, the hillside layout beautiful, the location excellent (within walking distance of several hotels) and for a very reasonable 120$. That included free wi-fi and a continental breakfast. While our cottage was fairly spartan, its bed was comfortable and its air-conditioning functional.

So while the Inn isn't luxurious per se, we had a very good time while staying there. Plus it gets you free admittance to Nelson's Dockyard!
