I didnt expect the Ritz when i booked The Marlborough for a 1 night stay but after reading the most recent TA reviews i thought i'd got lucky, but, sadly not. 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

Not a very posh hotel but it is very quite and clean and nice. Good breakfast options, with hot breakfast served on the table. Just spent one night in this hotel. The rooms are not very big but ok. It is not very far from the beach.

My partner and I popped to the Isle of Wight for a Valentine's get away, and chose the Marlborough hotel. The price was excellent, the breakfast was great with lots to choose from and the staff couldn't do more for you. Only downside was the heating in the bathroom, it didn't worry me so much but the other half feels... More

Hotel was clean and food was very good. Breakfast tasty and also the grilled sandwiches ordered at the bar were very nice. Staff were all friendly. We had a problem with the flush on the day of arrival which was promptly fixed. Only gripe was that our room and bathroom was a bit cramped. Otherwise a very pleasant stay.

I didn't know the area too well and just "picked" an hotel in the area I am keen to relocate to. Beds so comfortable and the room tastefully decorated and immaculate. The owners have spent time restoring many of the original features of this Edwardian building to a very high standard. No fussy wallpapers or carpets! Good location for beach... More

My wife and i stayed for one night and found the hotel to be very good. The staff were very helpful, the room was clean and comfortable, although could do with a little updating. We had a good breakfast with plenty of choice and as vegetarians we both had a very nice cooked breakfast. We would happily return and would... More

Booked at relatively late notice through Superbreak. Check in was quick and efficient. Our room was clean and comfortable. Decor could do with a bit of modernisation but otherwise OK (but not uncommon for B&Bs!) Room was fair in size and en-suite bathroom perfectly acceptable. Breakfast was a delight. Plenty to choose from in the continental breakfast (warm pastries, various... More
