Had an OK stay, reasonably quiet, friendly receptionist, breakfast nice. However, would have scored higher than Average if the room had simply been better maintained- would benefit from a deep clean, ensuite wallpaper reapplied with a little care, shower fixed to keep it pointing at the shower-ee, squeaky bed fixed and junk on garage roof which we overlooked removed.

We had a really pleasant stay, the room was very clean and comfortable. All the staff are really friendly and helpful. We have already booked to stay again. Breakfast was great especially the handmade marmalade a very good choice and selection of items on offer was very good. The ability to store our luggage at the hotel before our check... More

So this hotel is very good for travel, near the bus station which takes you all over the island and is just a 10 min walk away from the beach and the ferry port. Other then the fact the staff are very nice, NOTHING is nice about the hotel itself. We paid £350 for 5 nights at this hotel and... More

The bed and breakfast itself is very nice. They have a garden and a quite big rooms, clean and tidy, and a nice dining room as well. The staff is polite and friendly and helpful. I was a bit disappointed by the breakfast. It's free and that's good, but the quality overall is, in my opinion, a bit low.

Stayed here for a weekend as visiting family for a wedding. Warm welcome, late check in due to travel delays. Feels really homely, spacious and kept tidy inside & out. Lovely breakfast and great staff. Very reasonable price for stay and plenty of parking. Would stay again.

Friendly staff and room basic but was as expected and unlike one review had no problem with parking car. Breakfast good and well placed for town. Would stay here again if we were going to stay at ryde. I always read the poor reviews out of interest and none of them matched our visit.

Ryde on Isle of White is not a place you go to for a great night out but the city is charming and there are good restaurants (Italian Michelangelo is one good example). Dorset House is not in the high class B&B's but it's reasonable value for money and the location with a seaview is stunning

Stayed here for 4 nights in July and had a great relaxed stay. Room was beautifully decorated and very modern and the bed was one of the most comfy Ive ever slept in! Location is great as is a 2 minute walk from the Hovercraft and bus station so perfect for people needing to use public transport as we did.... More
