Welcome to all Grand Ocean Estate residents, this information is to encourage neighbourliness and increase your enjoyment of the estate.

The History of our Home

The Grand Ocean was designed by architect Richard, RWH Jones (who has also designed the nearby now Grade ll listed Lido) in the Streamline Moderne style which was perfect for extravagant coastal properties. When it first opened its double golden doors in July 1938, the hotel was the height of glitz and sophistication and epitomised Thirties seaside Art Deco architecture. It featured every amenity that the guests of the day could possibly desire. In its Art Deco heyday, Bette Davis swished down the spiral staircase and dancers filled the ballroom.
