The staff here a pleasant enough but there are quite a few improvements with the hotel needed to make a stay here better. While the bar and TV area were nicely decorated and comfortable, the superior room we had did not really come up to what was expected. The extra space was good to have, but the bed was extremely...

First the positives, the staff were friendly and welcoming and service was good. The breakfast had some good choices and was well presented (although the sausage served with the full English breakfast was quite average). There is parking, down a gravel drive to the rear of the hotel, which could do with a tidy-up. The big disappointment, having paid for... More

we have visited the Isle of Wight on several occasions and always stayed at the big parks on the Island but we thought we would try a small B&B and have to say we were very pleased with our stay. Nothing was too much trouble and the staff were always very friendly. Good choice for breakfast and plenty of tea... More

I wanted a hotel as near as possible to Shanklin Theatre and Somerton Lodge was ideal for that. The room was a reasonable size although the shower room and toilet is quite cramped but its en suite and for me that is always the main thing. The room was mostly quiet although voices from the next room were clear at... More

We were met with a warm and friendly greeting on arrival and were impressed by the attentativeness of the staff throughout our stay. Although our room and en suite were a little small they were very clean and comfortable. The guest lounges were beautifully decorated and very comfortable too. When we realised we could also have an evening meal, we... More

Stayed here in July with my son, we shared a twin room at the back of the house overlooking the car park. I arrived early as my son was attending an interview and was warmly welcomed and was told the room was ready and so I could leave my bags there. A spacious room and very clean. We had a... More

We have just returned from a fabulous four night stay at Somerton Lodge. We booked this hotel purely on the excellent reviews. We checked in early & had a very welcoming start to our short 4 night stay. Room was very clean & décor very fresh and modern. The bar, restaurant & lounge again were very clean & with a... More

Somerton Lodge is a lovely clean and warming Hotel. Great welcome on arrival from staff, quick but efficient tour and information on all we needed to know about the hotel before being shown to our room. The room and en suite was clean and tidy with enough room for 2 people. Dining room, bar and 2 lounges were well looked... More
