“Ocean B&B. South Fort Street, Leith, Edinburgh, Scotland.”
Reviewed 29 October 2013

This is just a small bed and breakfast establishment. Rooms are en suite and clean. A bargain at £40 per night single which includes a hearty Scottish breakfast. The staff are very polite and accommodating. The guest house is situated a 10 minute walk from Ocean Terminal and the "Brittania" in Leith. There is a very good bus service 50 metres from the establishment which will take you to the centre of Edinburgh in 10 - 15 minutes. I know if/when I return to Edinburgh this will be my choice of accommodation.

We stayed at The Ocean from 14th-18th October, and were delighted! The B&B is warm and welcoming and the staff very helpful and pleasant. It is true they are a new business, but they are doing all they can to provide a satisfying environment, I can see numerous changes and improvements since their earlier photos. The Ocean is great value for money, and we will certainly stay here again as we visit Edinburgh a couple of times a year. We have stayed in the higher end of 4* hotels in the city and as far as value for money goes, The Ocean wins hands down! One of these hotels had a note in the room saying "if you require heating please ring Reception" !!!! In Scotland, in December!!! The Ocean was warm and welcoming, it was a joy to come back to after a day out! We wish you all the best for your business, you deserve to succeed!

Reviewed 30 September 2013

room 3 our room was at the front of the building ,although clean and tidy there where quite a few noticable defects within the room,there was 1 small wardrobe with only 4 coat hangers between us,the only drawer space was in the bedside cabinets which only had the 1 lamp located at the window side,the curtains did not fit properly leaving a space on the outside edge letting the light in,
the paintwork on the wall around the skirting boards was uneven and unfinished with a major damaged wall hidden behind a chair,
the small shower room was adequate but you had to stand in the corner to close the door, disapointing that the wet towels from the morning where hung back up wet and not changed.
at breakfast it seemed disorganised with us having to ask for milk,sugar , cutlery ect.
on the saturday was unable to get wifi within the room,the guest book says to go downstairs to the lounge,
overall would not class this establishment as 4 star.

Dear Caroilne I'm sorry to hear you were disappointed with your stay we are very new and are continually developing all our rooms you will find that all our rooms have bedside lamps on both side now. I'm not sure why your curtains were not closing as we have not discovered this issue. Coat hangers we will add more however guidelines say 2 per guest on request we can issue more if required. I always appreciate guest feedback as this will help to push our business forward please in future make any disappointments aware to management we can assist in correcting any problems at the time of stay.

Thank you
Samantha management @ The Ocean Inn
