I took our family of 15 out to dinner to celebrate a birthday. This must be quite a challenge for any restaurant but they excelled themselves. Food was excellent enjoyed by all, the service was timely and attentive to everyones needs. The food was well presented, portions sizes were substantial and represented good value for money. Would eat here again.

The food was brilliant, the staff were excellent and very attentive and professional. The staff were accommodating for our fussy eaters (ordered off the lunch menu at dinner time) and allergies (Im allergic to brown sugar) certainly recommend and eat there again. Home made food and portions were substantial and perfectly cooked

The location is fantastic - only a few steps from the beach. I stayed in the single balcony room on the second floor which was pretty and with a beautiful view. My mother had a sea view double room which was also very light and attractive. Sitting on the spacious balcony with a cup of coffee in the early morning... More

The waitresses were attentive, friendly and helpful and the food was well cooked, substantial and... More

Small, but very comfortable, I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to stay on the Isle of Wight. It is in a perfect place for views each morning over the... More

Looks beautiful from the pictures and in reality it is mere steps from the beach. The lovely young lad in the bar area when we arrived was really helpful, apart from him and the lovely lady who served us breakfast (tall, pretty, dark ponytail) the rest was horrific. We had booked on-line, leaving a note about a lower floor as... More

Jimbo3024, Owner at Aqua Hotel, responded to this review

This review is quite unacceptable because it contains so many in-accuracies. Firstly, the reviewer made the booking on line and chose the room that was required from the vacant rooms available. The confirmation that she received clearly states that the room is a “Small double room with Shower room en-suite with a garden view and on the second floor”. She... More

A very good one night stay. Family room was very comfortable and clean. Staff very helpful and welcoming. We had bikes and they were able to store these securely at the back of the hotel. Breakfast was excellent.

We had a very enjoyable family dinner at this hotel. The staff were friendly and attentive and the meals delicious and substantial.I would recommend to others. My ratings are for the restaurant only as I was not a guest at the hotel.
