Stayed here for one Saturday night, as we were going to the Shanklin theatre. On arrival were made to feel welcome, the room was fine, clean and tidy, nice seaview and plenty of tea and coffee. Having returned from the theatre we were looking forward to having a drink and something to eat in the bar area, but we were... More

I stayed at the Bayhouse for some months for business purposes and found that the Jones' treated me with warmth and caring. It was a home from home as far as a hotel can be that. I cannot stress more strongly the kindness I received, I was included in family occasions and always found all the staff friendly and efficient.... More

I can only comment on the room we stayed at which was right at the back of the hotel. We were very pleased that it was ready at 12.30 when we arrived which was nice but it was really small room and you only had just enough room to walk around the bed. Found it very strange to have the... More

Thank you for your comments, This is why this room is let as a budget room. We did only purchase the hotel in late march 2014, and have lots of plans for The bayhouse. Some rooms are small and dated, and these rooms are discounted - at budget prices, which is what you booked. £59 per night with breakfast for... More

When arrived in Reception we were asked to pay straight away, which was shocking because we normally pay at the end of our stay. Got in the room which was ok and basic. Coasters need replacing, paint needed on the dressing table and the TV should be moved. No toilet roll holder and not much toilet paper so had to... More

We did have new breakfast staff on during your stay as my normal staff had left for uni, but after checking with them about your complaint about getting your own cutlery etc, they said that didn't happen. All tables are laid for 2 guests in the morning and if there is a table of 4 guests, once seated extra cups,... More

As someone who stayed during the week for work purposes, I had the pleasure of staying with the 'family' for 5 months. They were brilliant to me. Treated me well and the food was to DIE FOR! The owners were lovely people. Save your time. Book this hotel. Although I have moved on, I would come back to this hotel... More
