Picked this hotel out from trip advisor recommendations and can't say that we weren't disappointed. On arrival we were warmly greeted by Bill who sat us in the comfortable lounge area and provided a welcoming pot of tea. The lounge area was large with plenty of comfortable sofas and a small bar area. The bed room was on the ground... More

I stayed with a group visiting IOW for a field trip. The Hambleton Hotel was the perfect base. Bill and Jackie were excellent hosts. The hotel was spotlessly clean. We were supplied with everything we might need for a comfortable stay. The food was delicious - freshly cooked by Jackie. Bill was there whenever he could be helpful, which was... More

The Hambledon and its staff very much reflects the character of Bill and Jackie, its charming and hard-working owners. Breakfasts are excellent, freshly made and generously supplied, with extra toast and tea quickly supplied on request. Evening meals were also available, of an equally high standard. Our rooms had been recently redecorate, and indeed the decor throughout the hotel was... More

We arrived on Monday 14 Sept 2015 and it felt like going home. A warm welcome from Bill the owner and a nice cup of tea. We first went to the Hambledon last June and knew we would return.
