"Hard to answer checklist. Purpose research on th"
The lady of the house tried hard. The man in residence was not so interested in guests. There was no heat untill 5 or 7 o'clock. The weather had changed for the worse. The rate was economical and there was a first class hotel next door which helped for meals inn an isolated spot.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place to stay on the coast"
This is a nice little B&B with a wonderful coast view (room 4 is incredible!), large rooms and pleasant hosts. It's NOT a 5 star spa...it IS exactly what it claims to be, and it is an easy walk down towards the harbor shops. It's a bit further up into town, but certainly a place we will keep on our "return" list.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent friendly place"
Only stayed 1 night wish we had stayed longer. Friendly staff even though small family run business its very well run all prepared for our arrival 2 adults and 2 children didnt have to ask for anything lovely clean comfy beds and sheets clean room free english breakfast cannot emphasise enough how much we loved it. Only thing that might put people off […] is the look of the building next door quite run down vut thats nothing to do with ocean view the tv box thing didnt work so only 1 channel but there was a lounge with 30 stations for guests so wasnt really bothered and they have plans to upgrade soon anyway. Would definately reccommend this place right on sea front waking up to that was brilliant. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
As we were just passing through it is hard not to like the place. Great friendly staff , comfortable room and very clean. The only thing we found lacking was a nice restaurant near by for our evening meal.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel with sea view."
Stayed for two nights, Hotel run by a very nice helpful couple.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Run down hotel though clean and with nice staff."
We had a lovely view of the sea from our room but the television didn't work and neither did the shower.Genuine Expedia guest review
Would not stay here again room needed a good clean, no pressure or hot water in the shower, inside kettle was dirty and unusable, floor had balls of hair/ dust over all house is dated and needs up grading. Was a nice breakfast un the morning and the lady there was pleasant.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location next to hotel ,good service ,"
Location perfect ,relaxed and friendly ,made very welcome ,breakfast fresh and well presented in a clean dining room, would visit again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Room had not been cleaned properley in months. eg top of picture rails covered in dust as well as dust behind the bed head & in all corners of the room. Poor water pressure in the shower. Disturbed during the night by other guests at regular intervals. Hotel is in a great location looking out to sea, but needs sprucing up outside to make it more at […] tractive.

We were attending a wedding at a local hotel and the adjoining hotels where booked up. This was the only available hotel to book. The outside appearance was disappointing could have done with a good cleanGenuine Expedia guest review
Land lady is very nice and friendly. Nice range of breakfast foods which included a full English which was lovely.Location was great too.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The lady of the house was lovely, the breakfast was delicious. The building is old, and the decoration had been given a lot of thought. The only down side was the standard of cleanliness. The beds and the dining room were fine, but everywhere else needed a bit of elbow grease.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
location great, our bedroom overlooked the sea. only one window opened on one of the hotest days of the year but we were out most of the day so not a big issue. showers were the usual dismal british failure, dribbled out, hot one minute then ran cold, why can't our hotels invest in good showers? breakfast adequate but not huge but hey, it would be enough […] for a fair few i guess. only other thing is that the dining room is downstairs with no view while the 'guests lounge' overlooks the sea, it seemed to us to be the wrong way around, would have been nice to eat with a view. overall it was clean and tidy but a bit 'jaded' Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Only the service was good"
Damp and dank. Dangling cables, uncomfortable beds.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hell on earth"
Booked for 3nights got refuned for 2 this is ideal place to stay if you like urine stained mattress. Enjoy dust inches thick, mirrors you cant see in, scum marked bath and dirty toilet seat..Would not recommend to anybody.Genuine Expedia guest review
Nice hospitality, clean rooms, good breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lovely deceptive b&b"
Lovely overnight stay in welcoming and warm environment. This well maintained establishment is only let down by the exterior which hides the high standards within. Short cheap taxi fares easily connect with Seaton Carew and Hartlepool stations, and drivers know where it is. Lovely sea view!Genuine Expedia guest review
This hotel was a stop over for our main holiday in Scotland. The view from bedroom 4 was great the room was clean and the bad was comfortable and the breakfast was good. This stop was a good start to our hliday.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Comfy Beds, Very Close to beach and Amenities"
My partner and I stayed overnight. We was given a warm, friendly welcome on arrival. Shown where breakfast would be served and then shown to our room (number 1). Room was large, very tidy and well presented. Bathroom was also clean and tidy. The only grumbles I had was that the folder which held details about the guesthouse and local attractions, etc […] was broken, the shower head was leaky and there was a lack of electrical sockets (I had to unplug the TV to put the kettle on). The bits of the guesthouse that we saw was clean and well maintained. We had a great nights sleep - the beds are very comfortable with lovely fresh sheets and bedding. Plenty of hot water available for bath/shower. The room where breakfast was served was on the small side - but there was a selection of different cereals available. The full English breakfast was well cooked and very tasty. Again the service was polite and friendly. The guesthouse is in a great location - literally across the road from a flat, sandy empty beach!. There are plenty of restaurants along the seafront and also some large amusement arcades. The area is very clean, no graffiti, etc. Also plenty of information boards around - giving you some of the history of the area. All in all the Ocean View Guesthouse is excellent value for money, very clean and tidy. Would definitely stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hosts were fantastic, very friendly and helpful. They made our stay very enjoyable. Room 4 was lovely, with a beautiful view of the ocean. Our breakfast was delicious every morning. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Super Preisleistung mit Mängeln"
Sehr freundliche Inhaber, aber 3 Sterne sind natürlich lächerlich. Die Zimmer sind ok, aber doch recht dilletantisch selber renoviert sowie das gesamte B+B. Aber auf Grund des Preis-leistungs Verhältnisses ist befriedigend für die Gesamtwertung allemal gerechtfertigt.Genuine Expedia guest review

del av bygning fra 1863 som ligger nydelig til i Hartlepool .har utsikt rett ut på havet med sandstrand . promenade ett godt stykke inn mot byen.stedet er litt slitt, men har noen kjempehyggelige verter . man får en meget god frokost. så hvist en ikke er opptatt av at alt skal være nytt så er det en helt fin plass og overnatte. ett stykke og kjøre fra […] Middlesbrough , særlig etter kl. 19 , når transportbrua slutter og gå. men ett koselig sted Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good and not so good..... "
09/12/14 simplemick Stafford, United Kingdom
I think that your opinions of Ocean View Guest House depends on your expectations. If you don't expect much you will be surprised, if you expect big things you will be disappointed. The couple who run it are great, very helpful recommending places to go or places to eat. The outside of the hotel (next door in particular) does the place no favours. You can park for free in front of the building. The room I had was big, but not in the greatest condition. Little bits of wallpaper coming away, bits of dust on some things, bathroom needed some tlc, TV was stuck on one channel. Plus points were a really comfortable bed, lovely area to go for a sea walk, breakfast too was excellent. Not a bad guest house, but maybe not the best either.

We only stayed one night but didnt want to leave ! 2 adults 1 teen 1 under 10 all made very welcome shown to room by lovely lady who gave us a tour and we settled in even though 1 bed was fold away (needed extra bed) it was already set up made ready with lovely thick mattress not like a camp bed at all lovely clean white sheets and bedding soft towels and very clean room. Breakfast is a bit earlier during week if youre on holiday 7 to 830 but we slept so well we were up and ready to go! Clean shower tea and coffee making in rooms tv box only worked 1 station but we didnt mention it as there was a lounge with 30 plus channels downstairs. Lovely english breakfast cereals toast and fresh coffee ! Dining room is small but there are enough tables even at capacity. What can I say about the view perfect sea view through bay window =room 4= we are going back very soon cannot reccommend jt enough only thing that probably should mention is the building next door is a bit rough looking (nothing to do with the bnb) and gives the wrong idea of the place
"very warm and welcoming"
03/30/14 Danielle C Peterlee, United Kingdom
Very pleased with out stay, my self and husband stayed here (room 4) the room was clean, bed was very comfortable,plenty of space with sea views, hosts were warm and welcoming. Great value for money. Breakfast is everything you would expect a full English to be, no complaints at all. Will certainly stay again..
02/27/14 sithabile m Durham, United Kingdom
Very, disappointed at the service and the reception my family and I received, the staff (husband and wife) were not very welcoming, the rooms wre not very clean and the food was terrible. We were there in the middle of winter and we had to ask repeatedly for the staff to put the heating up. It was also very difficult to get hold of anybody to help you as it seemed that only two people worked there and they were hardly ever around. No great views from our room and the place lookes shabby from the outside. Will never go back there.
"Great B&B by the Sea!"
07/01/13 cridic Auckland Region, New Zealand
We arrived late afternoon after a long flight from New Zealand. We were immediately shown up to our room by the husband. The room (room 4) was lovely and large, with a sea view. Breakfast in the mornings was either continental, or full english breakfast. You were able to eat both. The wife was very friendly, but not over friendly and in your face. The rooms were cleaned daily and to a high standard. It was a great place to base ourselves for our travels and I would recommend it. NB: when we were there in Oct 2012 the B&B was for sale - not sure if it's been sold, or what the new owners are like.
"Nice rooms, with minor disappointment"
On the outside, the hotel isn't really up to much however on arival we were greeted by one of the owners, who took us straight up to our room. The room was a good size, however the bathroom was not. It was cramped and the shower took between 10 and fifteen minutes to be running warm water. Also there was a small blood stain on my towel. I'm not a fussy person so this didn't bother me but it might for other people. Coming at the end on winter also meant that a bit of wind cause the single glazed windows to rattle making it hard to sleep. However, as I was only in the area for a buisiness trip I only found the stay enjoyable and the beds extremely comfortable. Overall, good stay!

after booking a poor hotel previous I booked this one. The rooms are wonderful and clean and the breakfast was great. My room had the seaview and although I was working it was a superb room with a view. Rebooked already.
"You get what you pay for..."
07/10/12 GordonandMichael London, England
We arrived at the Ocean View Guest house and greeted by our host before being shown to our room on the 1st floor. We paid GBP50 for one night including an excellent full English breakfast. The room was en suite and had great views over the North Sea. I (Michael) grew up here so it was nice to have a warm welcome on my return. We can recommend the restaurant Red on the seafront for a nice meal too. For the price, we were never expecting a lot... but were pleasantly surprised.

Don't judge a book by it's cover. Ocean View is lovely inside. We had a beautiful sea view room, which was clean and comfy. Breakfast was also very nice.
