For a short weekend break or longer this hotel is A1.Why it is only two star rated and not more is a mystery. Small enough to be friendly and cosy but with all the facilities needed for guests comfort. As with most older buildings such as this disabled access may be a problem for some depending on their disability but there is a ramp down to the reception and , of course, lifts to all floors. There were quite a few disabled persons 'buggies' in the reception area so obviously this has not put off guests some of whom had been to this hotel many many times. My husband and I would certainly return here again and have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone. The free weekend bar from 6pm to 10pm was excellent and this coupled with entertainment, excellent food and obliging staff made for a very welcome break. Well done to all staff of The New Ocean Hotel.
