My heart sank as we approached the flaky doorstep in desperate need of a lick of paint. Some type of clothing had been thrown on the flower bed by entry steps and 2 old rusty frames plus an empty plastic haribo sweet tin were just left in the gravel of the front garden for all to see on arrival. We... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review, we agree that the front steps are in a desperate state at the moment following the recent winter storms and excessive rain. These along with the entrance lobby are due for a complete makeover and this is due to start as soon as the weather improves, the scaffolding equipment at... More

I stayed at the Dorset Hotel last month. The hotel is very clean, the food is lovely and the rooms are aswell. What makes this hotel so special is the staff who are very friendly and have excellent customer service skills. Would highly recommend staying there.

We decided last minute to go to the Isle of Wight for a couple of days. Found the Dorset Hotel on line, they had a vacancy so booked. Unfortunately, as we were a late booking we found our room was at the top of the hotel, three flights up. We should have asked when booking. It was a climb, but... More

Great location and easy to find, within walking distance to the beach, bus station, shops etc. Room was clean and comfy however shower in bathroom was more of a 'dribble' than a shower, a little bit more strength wouldn't go a miss! Breakfast was acceptable for the low price we paid; enough to fill us up till lunch which is... More

Had an enjoyable stay, with friendly staff and Dave at breakfast time was outstanding with his dedication to service, and the breakfast was very good. More care should be given to the rooms and decor. Our room, the net curtain was ripped at the sides, the toilet roll holder was not level, the flooring was cut badly around the basin... More

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. It... More
