Lovely guest house with such a lovely host who was able to help with any whim such a large room wasn't expected but great value. Breakfast was exactly what was required and everything we needed was given. All in all a lovely stay

For the price you pay the place is great, a little dilapidated outside but great inside. The couple who run it are amazing and the breakfast hits the spot. I would stay again. Nice place Rooms are elegant need to little more heating but the wind that comes off the sea makes this hard and also the view is awesome... More

Place was pretty shabby, needs a refurb badly! Our bedding was clean and the beds comfy, but the room (2) itself needed a good clean. I didn't have breakfast but my hubby did and he said it was fine. It was OK for a night but wouldn't stay again.

A clean bed, a lovely breakfast and all for £25.00. Sounds like a bargain to me. More

Room was spacious, clean and comfortable; the proprietors are very helpful and friendly, and breakfast is excellent. We stayed one night and were so pleased we decided to stay a further night but unfortunately it was fully booked and we couldn't. Just ignore the state of the adjoining buildings and you won't be disappointed.

I think that your opinions of Ocean View Guest House depends on your expectations. If you don't expect much you will be surprised, if you expect big things you will be disappointed. The couple who run it are great, very helpful recommending places to go or places to eat. The outside of the hotel (next door in particular) does the... More

Very, disappointed at the service and the reception my family and I received, the staff (husband and wife) were not very welcoming, the rooms wre not very clean and the food was terrible. We were there in the middle of winter and we had to ask repeatedly for the staff to put the heating up. It was also very difficult... More

We arrived late afternoon after a long flight from New Zealand. We were immediately shown up to our room by the husband. The room (room 4) was lovely and large, with a sea view. Breakfast in the mornings was either continental, or full english breakfast. You were able to eat both. The wife was very friendly, but not over friendly... More

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... More
