Fantastic hospitality and the owners were very helpful and bent over backwards to accommodate our requests. Would highly recommend. Even though the building is old it has fantastic views across the sea - must be stunning in summer.

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.

It was a place to sleep after a long drive. The only disappointment was the bathroom which was had seen better days, and the TV was not reliable. I won't stay there again, but l couldn't fault the owners who were both very nice.

We only stayed for one night but would definatly stay again. Please don't let the exteria put you off when you pull up! The rooms are cosy, smart and well worth what we paid, which was a very reasonable £60 for a family room with en suite! It's not ultra modern but comfortable. Its run by a middle aged couple. We only met the wife, who was extremely welcoming and friendly! A small English breakfast + cerial is complimentary which swung it for us to choose this place and I'm glad it did!

This was an ideal location as I was following my family routes and using the library in Hartlepool. The manager,Gwenda, was very helpful at the hotel and gave me lots of advice to help me in my quest. It was nice to have a sitting room if you required it. Other guests also made the break intersting.

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.

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 attractive.

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.

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'

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!

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.

12/02/14 Ronald W
For the price you pay the place is great, a little dilapidated outside but great inside. The couple who run it are amazing and the breakfast hits the spot. I would stay again. Nice place Rooms are elegant need to little more heating but the wind that comes off the sea makes this hard and also the view is awesome from the rooms

"not for us"
11/16/14 mrsdDurham durham
Place was pretty shabby, needs a refurb badly! Our bedding was clean and the beds comfy, but the room (2) itself needed a good clean. I didn't have breakfast but my hubby did and he said it was fine. It was OK for a night but wouldn't stay again.

11/02/14 geoff c Haywards Heath, United Kingdom
Room was spacious, clean and comfortable; the proprietors are very helpful and friendly, and breakfast is excellent. We stayed one night and were so pleased we decided to stay a further night but unfortunately it was fully booked and we couldn't. Just ignore the state of the adjoining buildings and you won't be disappointed.

"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.

09/04/14 sarah m
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 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..

"very dissappointed"
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"
04/17/13 Itsmrbennett
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!
