We stayed at Ocean Drive on the Parade for two nights as we walked the Coastal Path. This accommodation is beautifully decorated and impeccably clean. Our room was on the third floor facing the parade. We enjoyed a glorious ocean view and two nights of quiet, comfortable sleep. Glenn and Sarah are professional--efficient, well-informed and friendly. Breakfast is traditional or...

Thank you so much for taking time to post us a positive review. We appreciate some of the decor is dated.

Myself and my partner booked Oceandrive as a long-weekend Easter break with our little pug hoping for a "good enough" B&B in a location where there would be lots of pubs, fish and chip shops and beachy walks. We had been told Barmouth is a great dog-friendly place and would be perfect for what we were looking for. We found...

Great B&B! Lovely spacious room with nice touches to give us a generous welcome. Breakfast was included in the price and plentiful to start our day right. The couple who own this are very friendly and helpful. A place I'll be recommending to friends and family.

Our stay at Ocean Drive was perfect. The room was very comfortable and nicely decorated. There were nice extra touches like a cookie jar, cotton buds, extra big towels as well as better than average tea, bathroom products and a decent size tv ( not the size of a postage stamp you get in most B&Bs), the breakfast choice was...

Stayed as a rally team for a couple of nights as we were competing nearby. Warmly welcomed by Glenn who gave us some excellent tips for town centre eateries. He also advised us of the most secure location to park our team vehicles. Clean, comfortable and with excellent breakfasts; we will certainly stay here again. Well recommended.
