The food at this hotel is both disgusting & disgraceful, as is testimony to 95% of the 300+ guests who stayed there during my own 7 night stay. Breakfasts were abysmal, with warm juices (if they had not ran out) BURNT porridge, cold, limp un-toasted toast, uncooked bacon and tepid coffee. I ate only one breakfast during my seven night...

Our room was very good - clean and comfortable. The biggest let down was the food. This was our third visit to this hotel but our first and last under the new management. We found the system of not being able to choose either the chef's special or the vegetarian option on our day of arrival because they had to... More

We stayed in a family room on the below ground floor (it's on a hill so still had huge windows with plenty of daylight), possibly the biggest family room we have stayed in here or abroad. There was plenty of space for the 4 of us and my two little boys were happily dancing and jumping around the room! We... More

Very good hotel with above average facilities (indoor swimming pool) for coach holiday accommodation.The restaurant sevice was very poor on first visit which gives the hotel an undeserved bad impression.My room was excellent,clean & with good views toward Sandown.Entertainment in evening was also good. Generally very good value & would stay again.

Have just returned from this hotel and will definitely not be back!!!!! Dated rooms, shocking service at breakfast. The staff were rushed off their feet even running through the restaurant! If you rate dirty bowls, no cereals, an hour wait for dried up breakfast I'm sure you will get along fine but otherwise stay clear. If you do go avoid... More

We really had excellent service at this hotel especially from Shannon and Holly who are so kind.After a busy week it was delightful to arrive and relax in the pool and lovely Shanklin where two days is not enough!! On our next trip we will be staying at the Shanklin hotel which is great value for money.

My daughter has previously stayed at this hotel and was very happy but under new management this was NOT the case. My daughter ( 35 yrs ) who is recovering from surgery and radiotherapy for a brain tumour and her partner wanted to enjoy a mini break and booked in at this hotel.
