I read many reviews about this hotel and was real worried when I set off, but glad to say it was excellent, everything about it. Being gluten free I found the food excellent and the service was good, Eve being our waitress, the room was clean and comfortable, absolutely no complaints. Usual type entertainment except for an exceptional night with... More

Stayed here over five years ago which we thoroughly enjoyed, cant say the same this time though as service and food were very poor. Food was either cold or inedible and crockery was none too clean. The staff were not supervised and some of the time ran around like headless chickens. I think two days out of 7 we had... More

Had a really enjoyable stay was a little apprehensive after reading some reviews but the hotel was good the staff really pleasant, my only comment would be that there are not enough waiting staff in the restaurant for the number of covers and you did have to wait but then again I was on holiday and had all the time...

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.
