Recently booked this hotel for a relatively last minute family short break and read some very good reviews about it. To be honest it does exactly what it says on the tin for a two star hotel so we weren't disappointed at all. Yes the hotel décor is a little old fashioned but the rooms are perfectly functional and a... More

Amazing place to stay which will complement and complete your visit to the beautiful Isle of Wight. Fortunately we got a sea facing room and we felt like spending whole day in the room itself. Very nice decor, cozy rooms, friendly staff, great breakfast, live music, spacious parking to name a few of the good things which makes this place... More

we had room 205 and apart from the steep stairs to the 2nd floor the room itself was lovely. Very spacious, clean and light. It was nice nice also to open the 2 windows we had in our room as it was warm weather. The traffic is a little noisy but that disappears after 11pm. Bathroom was a nice size... More

Just got back from a brilliant stay at the hotel. The new manager Peter and his team were superb, nothing was too much trouble for them. We were made to feel very very welcome, service couldn’t have been any better. There was a buffet style breakfast with a good variety of food including croissants, fruits and yogurts. You never went... More

Our room was clean &bright, with toiletries in bathroom.The service was excellent. Staff helpful & polite. The manager did everything to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Life entertainment most evenings. Very competitive prices. Good parking facilities. And centrally located. Would definitely come again.

We had a fantastic one night stay at the Wight Bay Hotel. We reserved two sea view rooms, one for my parents and one for my wife and me. Unfortunately when we arrived they only had one sea view room, but the manager refunded the difference and was very apologetic. We were still very happy with both rooms, my parent's... More
