My partner and I found the Oakover through TripAdvisor and were bowled away by the pictures - it's very rare to see such a beautiful, modern b&b without chintzy floral designs everywhere! We stayed in Room 3 with the beautiful feature bath in the bedroom and were not disappointed. The room was beautiful, clean, and full of added extras to make our trip a little more special. I loved the huge bath and fluffy towels. There is a heated towel rail by the bath meaning you can wrap yourself in a thick warm towel as soon as you come out the bath - bliss! The only niggle we had was the bed which was a little lumpy, and took a couple of nights to get used to. That being said, we were sleeping soundly by night three, and the pillows and quilt were extra snuggly!!
The ladies who welcomed us and served us breakfast in the morning were extremely polite and eager to please without being too imposing. They saw to it that we had everything we needed and were keen to offer more tea and coffee each morning with breakfast. Many other b&b's ask you to give your breakfast orders the previous night, but the Oakover would take your order in the morning and cook it fresh while you enjoy the cereals, fruit, yoghurts and juice that was on offer. Very scrumptious!!
As others have already said, the car park is a little tight so it would be advisable to check for spaces before squeezing down there. We had no problems but saw the scrapes on the wall from many a car before us.
Would definitely recommend the Oakover to anyone looking for modern, stylish accommodation within 10 mins walking distance to the Grand Pier and town.
