We had an awesome time here. The pool was BIG and the Jacuzzi was perfect after a long day out and about. The room was clean with a spacious en suite and the bed was SO comfy. Extra pillows were in our room without having to ask. There was a blip with our payment- but the staff were so efficient... More

What a terrible hotel. Rooms dated, breakfast a shambles! Generally this hotel needs a makeover I bathrooms and public areas. On a plus staff are really helpful but this does not make up for shortfalls.

We booked the hotel via booking.com. It was very reasonably priced. Once I had booked, I read a number of reviews and started to worry about our stay. Lots of the negatives are true, but they are being addressed. Parking is limited, but there is an overspill car park and plenty of room on the road. The rooms do need... More

Before even setting foot in the hotel, my family had difficulty parking as there is maybe 15 parking spaces and we'd later find that we were in room 50, how they expect the occupants of the other 35 rooms to arrive at the hotel is still a mystery to me. After a delay for a room to become available (a... More

So after arriving we were told our roon wasn't ready which didn't really bother me in all honesty but luckily the guy at the reception said we could move to different rooms that are identical but he has been told they have good views. We went to these room and the views are of a lovely pole, car park and... More

Just remember you get what you pay for and this hotel worked out, for us, at £34 per person per night bed and breakfast. Good points: *Bedding was clean *Bed was comfortable *Bathroom was clean, but in need of re-grouting and re-sealing *Cleaning staff were polite and friendly *Communication was good as we had a couple of phone calls from...

We stayed in August in a family room 15. The room is situated underneath rubish bins, which some bins were ripped off. Lots of broken hotels furniture as well. When complained in the presence of the manager, two cleaners and a receptionist was told the bins aren't their responsibilities. What is the role of the cleaners at the hotels then?!... More

We had been booked to stay at the Melbourne Ardenlea Hotel by Booking.com, but the hotel rang us just before we were leaving for the ferry to inform us that Booking.com had overbooked the hotel and that we were being placed in the St Georges House Hotel, 2 St Georges Road, Shanklin PO37 6BA. They told us we were being... More
