After a short stay here we can say the staff made it better than it otherwise may have been. Parts of the outside of the hotel are in need of repair but the gardens were well looked after and lovely sun trap in the afternoon. The inside was a similar affair but the general feel was homely and comfortable. The... More

Having booked a break on the Isle of Wight in what seemed a pleasant hotel, I was shocked at the entertainment. It was very bad indeed. The singer Jules was less than average, her gentleman companion was vulgar and the act was the worst I have ever seen. When I went outside to have a smoke the singer also ran... More

Didn't know there is a scooter convention in Isle of Wight every year on August Bank Holiday hence the reason we stayed here as most other Hotels were booked. Tried to give it a chance but too much was wrong. Seriously outdated and in need if some TLC. Plumbing was horrendous with very loud noises even with just turning the... More

This Hotels exterior could do with a good paint up, this is the main thing that you notice on approaching the hotel, it is a large Victorian house converted into a large number of rooms, our room was OK but no shower only a rubber pipe type spray you had to use in the bath, the meals are small in...

Very good three night stay here. Staff helpful and friendly in all areas. Dinner Bed & Breakfast at £33 per head! Choice at mealtime, food perfectly acceptable. Same story as many places, refurb and update needed in rooms but though basic it did the job. Limited parking not an issue outside school holidays. Would recommend but don't expect the Ritz!

I would fully agree with all of the points made by the review in May. The room was drab, wallpaper peeling, walls damp. The bathroom was spartan, poorly lit and suffered from damp. My main problem with the room however was the fact that whoever was staying upstairs made it sound like they were moving furniture around until well after... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. If you had a problem with your room it would have been helpful to have reported this to Reception and if at all possible we would have moved you to an alternative room. Unfortunately some guests are not as respectful to other guests and had this also been mentioned to... More

After a long and tiresome journey we arrived after 11 hours travelling to be met by James the hotel manager. Our cases were offloaded and we were given the key to our allocated room. Unfortunately since my booking I had a stroke and our room was No. 24 at the top of the hotel, many stairs and without a lift.... More

This is a cheap hotel that gives you the opportunity to visit a beautiful island at a bargain price BUT!... this is not a new building.
