We have just returned from a weekend away at the ocean hotel. The hotel was very clean and staff were very friendly and hard working.
We stayed in room 11 it was small but smelt lovely and suited my partner and I.
The hotel is well situated, very close to everything. There was a band on Friday night that was really good and a dj on Saturday night. The bar was very busy and the music was loud so wouldn’t suit anyone wanting a early night but we enjoyed both evenings.
We also enjoyed breakfast on both mornings.
Overall had a lovely weekend away and would stay at the ocean hotel again.

Lovely hotel. Brilliant location. Room was large and very clean. Breakfast hot and tasty. Friendly helpful staff. Stayed for two nights. Well worth a visit. Two minutes away from the lovely beach and pier which is well worth a visit.

Lovely hotel situated close to town and pier. Room was spacious, clean with en-suite bathroom.

Had two night stay

Best of all was the breakfast, fruit juice was good quality, cereals, full English with toast.

Live band on Friday night and DJ on Saturday.

Manager very friendly and made sure everything was to our liking.

Would highly recommend this hotel.

We have stayed here on at least 4 occasions & have eaten here many more times, the most recent time being today.

The rooms are clean, bright and are a good size with en suite and all the usual facilities plus free wifi.

Parking is free but first come, first served.

The staff are always friendly and helpful.

They have a "no tracksuit or football tops at all times" and door staff at busy times.

The hotel is a 3 minute walk from the pier and 5 mins from the town centre.

They have a good range of food on the menu and my person favourite is the steak on the rock. You receive a decent amount of good quality steak which you cook yourself on a VERY hot stone.

The tempura chicken & ribs are also really good.

The Ocean have live bands playing regularly on a Friday/Saturday night but during the summer months they also have quite a few "music on the decking" on a Sunday. We have been lucky enough to catch a few of these and we have always been blown away by the incredibly high standard of musicians they book.

There is also a function room / bar / restaurant available for private functions.

Stayed for 2 nights.
Excellent location and friendly staff.
Rooms a bit dated but clean and presentable.
Superb breakfast.
Good base for exploring Chelmsford, Dedham and Flatford Mill.
Would definitely use again when in the area.
