Linda and Des provided a warm friendly environment where we felt very much at home. Breakfasts were superb and room and bed very comfortable. The hotel is well situated, a short stroll from plenty restaurants, pubs and the promenade... More

Took a party of six colleagues over to the Isle of Wight for a long week-end. Although each individual had their own preferences and requirements, I selected the Belmont hotel - and was not disappointed. Although it is easy to say " they could not do enough for you" this was certainly the case with Des and Lyn, who from... More

We were on the island for a winter wedding and were the only guests in the hotel. We had a fantastic stay! A lot of the guesthouses are closed in winter months, but luckily he Belmont is open. We got a free upgrade to a suite, a delicious breakfast and even a late night sauna. Highly recommend.
