Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We were extremely impressed with this hotel, so much better then many we have stayed in with much higher prices. Room was spotless and had everything we could need. Staff were very helpful and made us feel extremely welcome. Breakfast was also absolutely first class. The location of this hotel is also probably the best in town, wonderful sea views and easy to walk on sea front or into town. Perfect stay, would highly recommend.

We stayed here for the first time ,on arrival we was met by James who made us feel very welcome
We was given our key and went to our room.
The room was modern and very bright and clean
I was so surprised to find a jar containing home made cookies waiting for us with my name on the label
The bathroom was amazing, all tiled with lovely fluffy white towels
We had a evening meal at the restaurant below the hotel.
This is also where you have your breakfast
Everything was perfect will definitely come here again
They even have an ironing board and iron in the room

What a wonderful hotel this is!
My husband and I arrived on wet afternoon and didn’t know what to expect. We were both very impressed and welcomed by a friendly member of the team. Our bags were taken to our room whilst we parked the car and were invited to have a complimentary drink from the bar. We took this later on before heading out. Many thanks for this kind gesture.
I believe all rooms have been refurbished and have been completed to a high standard. We had a sea view room and the double glazing blocked out all external noise. Freshly baked cookies awaited us alongside bottled water and a selection of hot drink choices.
We had a good nights sleep (though couldn’t understand why people in the room above were banging on our ceiling at 10pm. Yes the tv was on but not loud as I had fallen asleep whilst my husband watched tele.).
Breakfast was amazing - fresh produce all cooked to a very high standard. One of the best hotel breakfasts I have ever had.
I wish Dan and the team all the best and we will be back next summer to enjoy what appears to be a beautiful beach.

We don't normally leave reviews anything we have to say we say during or at the end of the stay but this is an exception.
We stayed at the Hotel Ocean for three nights in October 2022 we wish we could have stayed longer.
The welcome was outstanding our luggage was carried from the car to our room being disabled this was a great benefit.
Our sea view room was all we expected large, very good clean bed, shower and a slightly higher comfort toilet, the view from the room of the sea beach and beach front was great.
The TV worked as it should, the coffee and tea facility was well presented.
There was a small fridge in the room which we did not realize otherwise we would have taken our own milk.
Housekeeping was very good and unintrusive. were able to manage them easily.
The food and service was again exceptional the Restaurant Jan which is newly opened is a delight especially for couples we had the Dover sole which we should have ordered one between us they we so large.
The stairs to the room was our biggest concern but we were able to manage them easily.
The Cafe Ocean is as good as most good restaurants with an extensive menu to meet most tastes and dietary needs.
The morning breakfasts were made fresh to suit our needs and the fried eggs were great (NOT snotty or burnt round the edges).
The owners and staff could not do enough to accommodate our wishes and needs which is refreshing they were all a credit to the business and hotel industry.
This is one of the best hotels we have recently stayed in for the cost and hospitality it is exceptional.
The car parking could be an issue for the less mobile but our car was secure throughout our stay.
We will not hesitate to book a stay again in the New Year.

We stayed for three nights as part of my birthday celebration and we couldn’t of wished for anything more
James, Daniel and their team have everything right. Impeccable service and a spotless hotel.
As soon as we arrived we were offered a complementary drink and made to feel so welcome. The rooms are immaculate with complementary home-made cookies tea coffee bottled water and toiletries.
The unlimited breakfast was delicious and we ate in the restaurant every night as the food was so delicious and so much choice.
We will definitely be returning. Thanks chaps!

From the minute we arrived, the service was out of this world. The staff are extremely friendly and polite. They can't do more for you. Our suitcases was took straight to our room and we was welcomed with free drinks upon arrival also delivered to us in our room. We had free parking for 24 hours complimentary of the hotel and free breakfast in the morning which was the best breakfast we've ever had and we are hotel hoppers. It was fresh ingredients and cooked to a high level and presentation standards are a 10/10. The room was very clean and had everything we needed. Water, tea&coffee are provided aswell as some biscuits. Really comfy bed, soft pillows. Overall an amazing stay. Morgan is a very professional, lovely, friendly guy and he couldn't do more for us. I cannot emphasise enough on how this place is the best place to stay. Definitely can charge more than what we paid too! The hotel/cafe is very clean and modern. Definitely recommend the hotel and the cafe!!! Thanks again!

Absolutely wonderful experience, from the moment my husband and I walked into the hotel, we could see that it was exactly what we had hoped for. The reception area is beautifully designed as per the pictures on their website. The beautifully well throughout design followed throughout the whole hotel, with lots of little extra's that just gave it that 5 star experience that so many other people had mentioned in their reviews. Every member of staff was very naturally friendly & helpful, which made it feel like they actually wanted to be working there. Our room was really lovely, and again was exactly like the picture, with fresh glass bottled water, good tea pig teabags, coffee etc. The shower gel & soap was so good that I asked where to get it from. Everywhere was spotless, and I mean SPOTLESS! We only had breakfast due to being out & about for lunch & dinner, but if the breakfast was anything to go on, then we would have been very happy. It was honestly one of the best cooked breakfasts we had, had. It was hot and fresh, and was served on lovely plates, cups, with little cute milk bottles, etc, which once again just added to our enjoyment. So if you want to stay in a well deserved 5 star rated hotel along the seafront, that is worth every penny, then this is the place for you. We would 100% stay there again, so finally a massive thank you to all the staff for making our weekend away just perfect. Jo & Simon Gardner

This place has made myself and my partner feel at home, everything we have asked hasn't been an issue, as soon as we arrived we was greeted at the door and as I struggling with my heavy suitcase the lovely gentleman took my bag from me and offered to take my partners too and took them to our room while we sat and has a lovely dinner and free drink which was a bonus too!
During the first night my partner tripped over the curtain within the room and it fell down they were more than happy to help fix the situation even with the temporary fix as is at the moment, each morning for breakfast food was absolutely gorgeous too.

The staff here go above and beyond to talk to you and make you feel welcome, they answer any questions and are willing to give recommendations for food etc.

10/10 guys! Fabulous we will be back!

Had the best welcome ever in a hotel in 50 years of travelling - thank you Morgan! Hotel was well situated on the sea front in the centre of the town. Had a great dinner (fish and steak) and two breakfasts sitting outside watching the town wake up. Took the bus to Norwich which is a great place to visit. Stayed in room 7 which was amazing. Car parking is nearby (a couple of minute walk) and you can unload the car right outside the hotel.

Answer from James D

Hi Chris, Parking on the streets around the hotel is permitted for free providing your vehicle is located in a resident permit zone A bay. Alternatively, the hotel has private spaces located at Euston Road car park 321m from the hotel.

When you arrive you will be given two choices, get registered with the council for free parking in a nearby car park (circa 200 hundred yards away), or else get registered for free parking in a number of nearby roads. All you have to do is give the hotel your car reg when you check in and they register you instantly. I parked the car and went into the hotel, leaving my wife to lookout for traffic wardens. The car was legally parked by the time I got back. We chose street parking and that worked out OK in the summer, so it should be fine in May.
