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

Fabulous food and a lovely, clean room. Pay extra for a room with a view! Wonderul location, right on the edge of the picturesque Tennyson Down. Hotel full of 'walkers' on specialist walking, singing and rambling holidays. Breakfast was fab. Couldn't eat all day. Simply lovely.

This is by far the worst hotel experience of my 70 odd years. Described by another guest as 'like being in a care home' The tired 1950's(?) building should have been demolished years ago. But specificaly here's my comments on the whole Xmas experience: 1 Our room was in a style of the 50s, bathroom equipment the same as we'd... More

The house is in a lovely location and I cannot fault the accommodation or the food , This was my first visit to the Isle of Wight and I feel that I gained a real... More

We enjoyed a lovely week here walking with HF. A great selection of walks this time, from family strolls to longer walks. Leaders were really good and the food was lovely. We enjoyed the pool and the Dandelion cafe too. Our daughter did the multi activity week. A new company was used for the first time this year. Whilst the... More
