I stayed at the Ocean View Hotel last night and really liked the place. Somebody with lovely taste has done up the communal areas very stylishly. The gold wallpaper and mirrors and pretty little touches made it nice to spend time in. I enjoyed a happy hour with my feet dipped in the lovely pool (really clean and attractive terrace) The waitress bought me out a pot of coffee and a cool drink and crisps, they were very reasonably priced and the waitress very obliging.
All the staff I met were really good, they were professional and friendly too. My room was a sea view one and one of the last ones they had available as I booked mid afternoon of the day I was going. It was very clean, plenty of really hot water and my bed was comfy. It was fab being able to have the sea air blowing into my room all night.
The bathroom carpet did smell a bit of wee and I got the impression this may have been one of the rooms they were working round to refurbishing. Having said that the room itself was really clean.
This is one of those hotels you can really relax in, not like some of the 4 and 5* hotels that feel like being in your stuck up auntie's house,snarling at you if you put your glass down without a coaster. It is Stylish but relaxed and homely.
I will stay again, thank you Ocean View :-)
