We stayed for 3 nights with another couple of friends, nothing was too much trouble for the Manager and staff. Sheets and towels pristine, breakfast excellent and the hotel very central. Excellent value for the money.

The hotel manager is a very friendly person, the rooms are basic but generally clean. The food is good and plentiful. Don't expect the Hilton but certainly value for money. Ideally located for Shanklin and the rest of the island.

Close to beach and local amenities. Made to feel welcome by management and staff. Would recommend to old and young alike. Unable to comment on meals in the evenings as... More

Stayed here for a wedding that was being held on the island at a venue with only 12 rooms. As we weren't going to be around much we went for the cheaper end of the scale. First impressions were pretty good and it looks like some work has been done on the communal areas recently. All fairly basic, but still... More

The staff are friendly and welcoming. In regards to the rooms, they need to be updated a little, decent size but the bathroom was on the small side. The breakfast was good.
