Just had three fabby nights at Ocean Drive. Spotlessly clean. Very comfortable room. Excellent breakfast & packed lunches. Lots of lovely personal touches. Adorable dog, Ralph, available for hugs. And the hosts, Sarah & Glenn, weren't bad either. Seriously, nothing was too much trouble - we were very well looked after. Top marks to Sarah & Glenn.
