Old country house in a beautiful location. Our original room (me and a 5yo) was above the communal area which gets very busy in the evenings but we were moved to the top floor with minimal fuss when we asked to change rooms. Staff very attentive and pleasant. Hotel has a playground and a lovely view of the bay, lots... More

Give this one a chance because at first sight on going through the door it looked a bit dated and almost as one would imagine an older Nursing Home.(Very patterned carpet) Nevertheless we persevered and although dated ( I really don't mind an old fashioned bathroom suite as long as it is sparkling, which it was) we found the spacious...

An all-inclusive walking holiday at Freshwater Bay is excellent, though people can and do use the hotel for bed & breakfast too. The hotel may be a little tired (though it is having a revamp this winter), but the quality of service more than makes up for that. The food (especially the breakfasts) is second-to-none. HF have their own way... More

Been to Buttercup House before and still as good, perhaps even better. Excellent breakfast and love the sleigh bed in room 5 - sheer comfort. We like the idea of a separate sitting room gives a far more relaxed stay. Thank you Jacquie and Rob

Just back from a 4 day stay at this walkers paradise. From the friendly arrival all our needs were catered for. Excellent food, including fresh packed lunches on the walks, and brilliant experienced leaders showing us the highlights of the island. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and the hotel is situated in one of the prettiest bays.... More

Held my mother's 75th birthday lunch here this week. Every single meal was a pleasure, the staff friendly and extra veg, gravy and custard no issue at all. Plates hot and the chicken and lamb a delight - very tender and almost no need to even cut. The manager Tony even put a birthday card and present on the table... More

From the messy walks/play to the well-presented, tasty food to the white bed linen and comfy beds to the play leaders and many other staff - well done to Tony and the team at Freshwater Bay Hotel this week. My two granddaughters and I enjoyed it immensely (plus my sister, her husband and grandson!)

On her first trip to England, my seven-year-old granddaughter wanted to do some hiking, so I took her to my favourite HF Holidays house in the UK - Freshwater Bay on the Isle of Wight - for a four-day "family vacation." She had a wonderful time - as did I. It was my second visit to this particular HF "house"... More
