We always enjoy our stay here, Paul and Ann are very friendly and the rooms are decorated to a high standard, with comfortable beds, breakfasts are excellent with plenty of cereals/fruit and a good choice of cooked meals, ideally placed for the seafront or town I would recommend the Windsor Carlton.

The Windsor-Carlton exceeded our expectations. Ann and Paul have renovated the hotel to the very highest standards, whilst retaining all the features of their beautiful historic house. The sea views from the bay window of Beatrice on the top floor are breathtaking. The kingsize bed was one of the most comfortable hotel beds I've ever slept in, including those in... More

We stayed at the Windsor Carlton for three nights and we cannot recommend this hotel highly enough! To call it a B&B seems slightly unjust, its a beautiful tastefully decorated building, impeccably clean all in all a real class act! Anne and Paul the owners are pleasant and friendly and Wendy the waitress who takes care of everyone at breakfast... More

Chose The Windsor Carlton to celebrate our 1st Wedding Anniversary, we love Ventnor and after reading positive reviews it did not disappoint. Stayed in room 5 "Caroline" on first floor, had beautiful four poster bed with quality bedding. Gorgeous views of the sea and cliffs. The room has nice touches including binoculars, books, dvd player and a tassimo machine. Beautifully... More

We stayed in room Eleanor, which faces the down, for 3 nights. The room was large and spotlessly clean, can't fault it. Our hosts were very friendly and welcoming. The breakfasts were fantastic. We tried a few different things off the menu and they were all really superb, the Eggs Benedict and the French toast with forest fruits were particularly... More

The Windsor Carleton is a lovely, ideally placed Victorian guest house in Ventnor. Our bedroom was room 2 (Beatrice) and from there we had wonderful sea-views right across the bay. The room was very clean and beautifully decorated and the only slight downside was the bathroom was quite small. The owners were extremely friendly and the freshly made breakfasts each... More

I'll start with the good points: + The bedroom (01 - Eleanor) was very big, clean and had excellent views of the sea + Breakfast was great in terms of both service and quality of food + The staff were amazingly friendly The bad points (in my opinion) were mostly based on the room we stayed in, rather than the...

Thank you for your recent review and we are pleased that overall you felt the Windsor Carlton was a great place to stay. We were disappointed that you were unhappy with your room, however. (So that others are aware, room Eleanor faces St. Bonaface Down and is not a sea facing room). Your stay was in room Sylvia which has... More

We were in Ventnor for a friend's 60th birthday and spent two nights at the Windsor Carlton Hotel, in the 'pink' room (sorry, the room had a name but I cannot remember it!) with the Queen Anne bed, with a view of St Boniface Down from our window. The Hotel is right at the edge of the town and the... More

My partner and I spent two very relaxing days at the Windsor Carlton in August 2013. The room was spacious and clean with good sea views. I liked the coffee machine and the fact that binoculars were provided - always good for a nose at what's going on down on the sea front. I would personally have preferred a bigger... More

Thank you for your delightful review. We take your point about the tv. The 19 inch television is the size recommended, but bigger can always be better ;-)) Hope to see you again some day - Thank you More
