I've stayed here many times for work and I'm always treated like a princess by Petra and Michael. Bless their hearts! The rooms are very comfortable and always sparkling clean. The location is fantastic- everything just a short walk away. Breakfasts are delivered to your room and are made to order- and I have to say I crave theirs even...

Wow. Nestled in the shadow of a large multi national chain is this Hidden Gem. A diamond in fact. From the minute you are greeted with a smile and warm welcome by either Petra or Michael, to the home cooked biscuits, the perfectly poached breakfast eggs. Not to forget, the story's and friendships forged over some quiet 'lemonades' after 5....

We planned to stay one night but we were so pleased with the welcome and facilities that we ended up extending our stay. The rooms are well equipped (comfy beds, microwave, fridge, plates, tea towels...

Don't rely on their opening times. Saw they had rooms available and were open until 9pm - rocked up at 8:15pm to find office shut and no after hours number. Advise calling and booking ahead to avoid disappointment. Potters Oceanside has 24 hour check in.

We were quite surprised with your review, and appreciate any feedback. We are however, concerned with a couple of your comments you made regarding arriving at 8.15pm and finding the office door shut, and, not having a phone number displayed. Our reception hours are 7am – 9pm daily and our phone number is displayed on the large sign at the...

Excellent care service from Michael and his wife. Exceeding their 3 star service. Clean accommodation. We booked in with our disable son in a non disabled room. They made sure all needs were met and more. Happy to recommend them as a 5 star plus.
