This was the 3rd year that we had a short break at the hotel. It's in a quiet location but within 10 minutes walk of the old-town. The dining room is bright & airy. Breakfast's are excellent and waitress served. The lounge is comfortably furnished. The rooms at the rear of the hotel are reasonably furnished but just a little... More

It's ideally located within 5 minutes from Shanklin. It has a car park and there is a bus stop directly outside the Hotel. Breakfast was good with... More

The bedroom bright and clean and so was the bathroom. Free WiFi and tea and coffee in the room. Hotel located in a nice area. Even for this price range a... More

Greeted by very friendly, attentive staff. Hotel is tidy and clean with pleasant decor. Our room was well equipped, bathroom absolutely spotless, Nice and quiet, with very comfy bed. Could do with having some powers sockets beside the bed.

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
