“Nice rooms, with minor disappointment”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

On the outside, the hotel isn't really up to much however on arival we were greeted by one of the owners, who took us straight up to our room. The room was a good size, however the bathroom was not. It was cramped and the shower took between 10 and fifteen minutes to be running warm water. Also there was a small blood stain on my towel. I'm not a fussy person so this didn't bother me but it might for other people. Coming at the end on winter also meant that a bit of wind cause the single glazed windows to rattle making it hard to sleep. However, as I was only in the area for a buisiness trip I only found the stay enjoyable and the beds extremely comfortable. Overall, good stay!

after booking a poor hotel previous I booked this one. The rooms are wonderful and clean and the breakfast was great. My room had the seaview and although I was working it was a superb room with a view. Rebooked already.

Room Tip: Ask for room 4

We arrived at the Ocean View Guest house and greeted by our host before being shown to our room on the 1st floor. We paid GBP50 for one night including an excellent full English breakfast. The room was en suite and had great views over the North Sea. I (Michael) grew up here so it was nice to have a warm welcome on my return. We can recommend the restaurant Red on the seafront for a nice meal too. For the price, we were never expecting a lot... but were pleasantly surprised.

Room Tip: Pay the extra for the en suite... well worth it.

Don't judge a book by it's cover. Ocean View is lovely inside. We had a beautiful sea view room, which was clean and comfy. Breakfast was also very nice.
