My boyfriend took me to The Hambrough for my birthday on 1st January 2013. We stayed in Room 4 with amazing sea views from the bedroom and bathroom, the free standing bath is a lovely touch too. The staff were welcoming and friendly. Unique cuisine with attention to detail. Highly recommend this hotel.

It was with a bit of trepidation we went to the Hambrough - having read some of the reviews - but we needn't have worried. The food and service were spot on. There were all the things you'd expect of a high end / Michelin star restaurant: everything made from scratch, artistically presented with novel combinations and elegantly proportioned. We... More

Beautiful boutique property with excellent sea view. Rooms were large and tastefully furnished, and room 4 had a great sea view from both bedroom and the bath in the bathroom. Staff where friendly and welcoming and breakfast was excellent . Unfortunately for us we stayed during Ventnor Fringe and carnival weekend which would be great if you wanted to be... More

We popped into the bar one beautiful sunny evening. The bar was fairly empty so we managed to get a seat in pole position in the big bay with the sea view. Fantastic! Service was excellent and the drinks were a fairly standard price. We were expecting a mark-up, given the Hambrough's reputation as a high-end restaurant. So we'll done... More

We had a delightful stay for two nights in August. Beautifully furnished and comfortable room. Great breakfast with a variety of modern takes on classics cooked to order. Even better was the tasting menu. Perfectly cooked dishes made from local ingredients paired with amazing wines. Friendly personnel and good waiting staff. /Linda & Daniel

What a lovely, tasteful, contemporary 5 star hotel... My husband surprised me with a short break to IOW for the weekend. Our first night was here at the Hambrough. we are real foodies so ate at the restaurant too and were not disappointed. Our sea view room was well equipped inc. fluffy gown and slippers! Huge bathroom and walk in... More

We chose this hotel from the internet because of its good reviews. We didn't realise it is really a 'Restaurant with Rooms'. Many 'pluses': Wonderful welcome, courteous, considerate, friendly, helpful and accommodating staff, large rooms. A superb kitchen overseen by Darren Beever who prepared exquisite dishes, all beautifully served on linen tablecloths with linen napkins. Cleanliness and comfort throughout both... More

Just return from a long weekend in the Isle of Wight and what a treat. Except for the Saturday morning we were pleased with wonderful weather which always helps.

We went to the Hambrough for a midweek break to celebrate our anniversary. We spent two nights in one of the superior rooms. This has the balcony and it was well worth the extra money. The views are amazing. The service is very efficient and always carried out with a smile. Breakfast is included in the room cost and it... More

We had been to The Hambrough's sister restaurant (The Pond Cafe- excellent) several times and wanted to try this place. We were not disappointed, everything was well cooked and the service was very good. The food may be a little fussy for some but I would certainly return. We had a couple of gluten and wheat intolerants in our party... More
