There are lots of stairs - no problem provided you are fit. The twin room had two easy chairs and the en-suite shower room/toilet was spacious. But I have to mention some niggles. The breakfasts were good but there was no choice of fruit juice. The shower/room toilet had no heating, not even a heated towel rail, the waste bin was not emptied daily, the towels were not spread out to dry, the used shampoo sachets were not removed and replacements were not provided and one small bar of soap between two people was inadequate. No replacement biscuits were provided with the tea and coffee making facilitiesafter the initial three had been eaten. I can only assume that rationing is still in effect in Wales.
The mirror for the dressing table was in the wardrobe.
What a shame to spoil a good ship for a ha'porth of tar!

Needed a one-night stay in Barmouth, and picked this guesthouse by poor chance really, but we couldn't have dropped any luckier if we'd scoured the whole of Barmouth!
The room was exceptionately clean, beautiful decor, unlimited tea & coffee making facilities (which is very important to me!) t.v etc... Infact the whole place was pristine clean. The hosts were friendly and welcoming, without being "in your face" all the time, as is sometimes the case. The breastfast room was clean and bright, but most importantly, the breakfast was gorgeous! Choice of cereals to start, fresh orange juice on the table, tea or coffee, then full English breakfast followed by toast with choice of marmalade/jams. And when i say full English, I mean FULL English! 2 lovely thick sausages, 2, lean rashers of bacon, 2 fried eggs (cooked perfectly) fried bread, black pudding, fresh tomato, mushrooms& baked beans!
Ocean Drive is also situated in a prime position within Barmouth, quiet, but very handy for all amenities, and with a seaview outlook.
I would certainly recommend staying here. If this is the type of accomodation you're looking for, then you can't go wrong. I would definitely stay there again next time I go to Barmouth.

We would highly recommend Ocean drive guest house our room was clean decor really nice the bathroom was spotless and breakfast excellent as was the service and hospitality from Keith and Eileen which was second to none very very friendly and welcoming.This was our first foray to Barmouth and it won't be the last what a great resort lots of walks to do and places to explore you can also arrive by train if you so wish which is a 5 min walk to Ocean drive. Again it was a most enjoyable break thanks to Keith and Eileen.
