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

Excellent accommodation and food. Good walks and leaders. A friendly and convivial atmosphere. I thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of the holiday at Freshwater Bay . 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

This is a five star rating for a three star hotel. The position of the building is fantastic. Other Reviewers have written how well suited it is for Walkers - they are right - it is ideal. Judging by ours (No. 18), the bedrooms are exceptional - large, light, airy, tidy and clean. There is something distinctly decent about the... More

Beautiful setting, stunning location - room was spacious airy and very clean. Facilities very good, everything you would need - and the service - especially from Tony, the Manager - was exemplary! Food was generously portioned and of excellent quality, served in a friendly and timely manner. Although communal dining may not be everyone's bag, this is not a hotel... More

We stayed with a large group of friends. Staff always helpful. Huge breakfasts and packed lunches. Good evening meals but they need to be more generous with the vegetables. Plenty of rooms for relaxation or activities. Heated outdoor pool looked inviting but the weather was too breezy for me to be tempted. Two ducks seemed to appreciate the pool.

Travelling as a family with a small child is always challenging. One view from this Hotel's cafe overlooking the green surrounding and the scenic ocean gets you in the IOW mood straight away. If you are expecting some 5 star super executive stay, this hotel is not for you. But, for anyone who wishes to have a comfortable stay and... More

We travel for four to six months a year. We stayed for a week at a lovely National Trust guest property close to this hotel and stopped in several times for coffee and/or a meal. The restaurant views and wonderful staff members were remarkable. When our week ended at the NT apartment we happily moved to this hotel for two... More

We have been looking for years for a good homely hotter near Freshwater and at long last have found one. It is great large bedroom ( Room18) which a fantastic view of the bay. Warm and lots of tea/coffee available in your room and a really lovely breakfast, can throughly recommend it.

Outstanding High tea was served for party of 6 + child (request & notice given prior) with warm, friendly and professional service. Views are breath taking over Freshwater bay. The price was unbelievably reasonable for what we all had and all our needs were taken care of. There isn't anywhere to compare this lovely traditional high tea treat for our... More
