My wife and visited The Union Inn tonight (Friday 20th March) at 18.00hrs for something to eat and drink. It was recommended in the Good Beer Guide and so I decided to give it a try. I was rewarded with a very pleasant experience. An island bar dominates a pleasant area set aside for drinkers and diners. The decor is... More

Situated close to the sea, this is a lovely place to stay on the Isle of Wight. The room was clean and cosy - the bed was comfortable and breakfast was delicious. The free wifi worked consistently throughout our stay. Although there is no parking onsite, there is a car park close by that is free during the evening and... More

Rooms were of a very good standard, really comfortable beds and up to date bathrooms, which in an old inn... More

It was warm, decorated tastefully and had everything we needed for our overnight stay. The en suite bathroom had a brilliant shower and the beds were very comfortable. The pub was in a... More

One of us had to climb across the bed to get in as it is against a wall ( not suitable for someone withobility problems ). Sliding off the... More

I stayed here with my wife for a few days in October and was a little bit disappointed since I stayed there a few years ago. Our tap wasn't working properly, the shower handle was broken, we had no electricity on the second day due to the water leak that was coming through our roof in the middle of the... More
