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

Booked this hotel for a business trip but decided to bring my wife along as we had never visited the IOW before, Very clean and although not entirely warm in all areas it was nether the less a pleasant stay. The staff were very friendly and they were always available to attend to our needs. The breakfast was extremely good,... 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

Isle of Wight is a nice place to visit if you choose the right hotel. We travelled with alpha coach tours and we're treated as second class guests during our stay. We were told by the staff that coach guests get different meals (whilst served at the same time) as "private guests". I was refused my requests for yoghurt at... More

We stayed 3 nights in this hotel and I must admit that this was a very good hotel. We have stayed at 2 others in Shanklin and Sandown and this one was the best. The room was comfortable and the breakfast was very good. This hotel is ideally located to the old town, the high street and the sea front... More

Stayed with my daughter for just for 1 night whilst attending a wedding and was pleasantly surprised. The hotel was clean and very welcoming and a great breakfast in the morning. The hotel appears far more attractive inside than the frontage. I will definitely stay again if I need to stay on the island.
