We have had our wedding blessing and reception here this July and it was the best I could of hoped for. The food everyone commented how lovely it tasted and on how much there was. It was presented beautifully and Pascoal and his team went the extra mile in every way possible. I had no stress whatsoever the whole day... More

Having had a wonderful time last year on a family holiday we chose to return again this year. My husband and I decided on a short break at short notice! Once again we found the hotel, owners and staff to be very good. We arrived early and book in was no problem. This allowed us to make the most of... More

I was at a recent wedding reception at the Marlborough Hotel, and as it was my turn to drive, I was on soft drinks. I asked the bar steward for a large lemonade, he proceeded to open a bottle of 'Happy Shopper' Lemonade from the shelf, and pour it into a pint glass along with a couple of ice cubes.... More

Stayed here for one night while on the Isle of Wight for business. My room was on the top floor, which was fine but the door out to the shared walkway balcony didn't have a very good lock on it and I found that a bit disconcerting as a single traveller. The single opening window only opened a little way,... More

We stayed for a week in June and the room was really comfortable and very clean and quiet. The breakfast was lovely and we could have anything we wanted, the staff couldn't have been more helpful. The owner was always on hand to help and advise.

We were delighted with the reception we received at the Marlborough. The owners couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. This is a very old building, as you can see from the fanastic sepia photograph in the entrance lobby, but you can tell that the current owners have given it a fresher, brighter look to suit modern tastes. We particularly... More

Poorly decorated, tiny room, poor bathroom decor and to top it all of we were awoken by somebody knocking on the door from 5.15 am trying to get in... More
