We recently returned from 4 night stay at this Hotel (July 2014). Very clean and tidy, staff very friendly, lots of choice for breakfast and lots of it too. There is a nice bar area and outside seating area. We had room 12 room which was very nice but the bathroom was extremely small (literally step in and step out... More

The Somerton was definitely value for money, rooms comfortable with en suites. As we were staying for a couple of nights, we used the lounge and bar area in the evenings, very pleasant room. Breakfast was good and the staff very helpful and friendly. Would definitely go back.

We had seen reviews for Somerton Lodge on Laterooms.com. We had planned a weekend break on the Island and for £50 bed and breakfast, we thought it looked very good. The house and gardens are attractive and tidy. The car park at the back is easy to access and with ample parking. We had managed to get an earlier than... More

Hotel was really nice, characteristic building. A little dusty, but we thought it was good for £50. I come from the island and know a few hotels here, would certainly use this one again next time we visit my family.

I was signed for 3 nights and was sorely disappointed. Walls were paper thin and I had to shout through the wall for the next room to quieten down. The shower head was disgusting, see picture. Breakfast was basic and cheap products used. All in all not a good experience. I have to go back a few more times yet... More

As we walked up the path to the main door, thought what a lovely building, this feeling stayed with me as i entered the reception area. The lounge area was very pleasant looking, with plenty of comfortable seating with a large TV at one end, a small bar situated at the entrance to the lounge, which you have to ring... More

Beautiful old victorian building with a nice front of house, large lounge/bar area which was nicely decorated with plenty of seating. The bedroom we stayed in does need some refurbishing and the shower was quite small and a little mouldy, however the bed was comfortable and we had a peaceful few nights. Turn left out of the hotel and walk... More

My partner and I booked the Somerton very last minute for a couple of days stay in IOW. The greeting at the hotel was very friendly and the this level of friendliness was continued throughout the stay. Breakfast was very good and we were impressed that you could order off the menu and little touches like cooking our eggs to... More
