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

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
