I have just returned from a very relaxing and enjoyable week at the Ocean Hotel. This is a good quality mid-range hotel, catering for coach parties (which means that many residents are elderly) as well as independent travellers (who are likely to be younger but were in the minority when I was there). The food is good, service is friendly and efficient, and the hotel is very clean. The heated, sea-water swimming pool was delightful, and the position of the hotel, with one side on the sea-front and the other side on the high street, although it sounds a little strange, was ideal.
It's always possible to find fault, and certainly there were a few problems here (including creaking floorboards, a balcony close to the air-conditioning system outlet from the kitchen which was noisy and smelly at some times of the day, a WiFi system that was only available in the lounges, and red-hot towel rails), but I have to say that, taking everything into account, this was probably the best hotel experience that I have ever had in my 62 years.
