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

+ Wonderfully situated, right by the cliffs and the bay. A dream spot in beautiful weather! The staff is extraordinarily helpful and friendly. Cafe Dandelion serves delicious coffee & food. Room 37 has a 20 sqm bathroom! - Dinner & breakfast are communal-table affairs. If you're lucky with the company, it may be fun. The whole atmosphere is kind of... More

Despite arriving damp and dishevelled, I was quickly found a room at a very reasonable rate. I arrived too late for the set dinner, and needed to leave too early for a cooked breakfast - however, fantastic food was produced for me for both meals by staff for whom nothing was too much trouble. The room was clean and comfortable,... More

Stayed here for a single night with my son. We had cycled across from Yarmouth which took us a little under an hour. The hotel has a great location and we were welcomed by friendly staff, they showed us a safe place for our bikes and checked us in very efficiently. We spent the afternoon making the most of all...

To my surprise I found only ONE negative writeup about this place. But this is because most of entries are from discounted groups of HF walkers.There was nobody in reception and even when at the end I wanted to pay the bill I was served by a cleaner who was not familiar how CC machine workes and finally i was...

I have just had a wonderful long weekend break at Freshwater Bay Hotel. The hotel staff are so friendly. The gluten free menu is exceptional - usually you are lucky if there is one thing suitable on the menu - here there were always 4 or 5 choices on offer and usually only one item that was NOT gluten free....

The hotel name perhaps suggests a little more luxury than is actually the case but our stay was very pleasant. The room was a very good size, and the sea view was good. The room was a little worn in places but generally clean and tidy. The public areas had clearly been renovated, and the breakfast had a good choice... More
