I have eaten at Yelfs hotel on many occasions and every time the food has been fantastic all dishes on the Special board and the Main menu have never failed to delight me .It is in this day and age good to see fresh quality ingredients and locally sourced products being used in this charming hotel !

We took a risk a couple of weeks ago and just decided on a whim to visit the Isle of Wight and not book any accommodation as we thought everything would have quietened down. WRONG! After being told too many times "no room at the inn" or silly prices, we pitched up at Yelfs. The lovely helpful receptionist was able... More

Like most things on the Isle of Wight, you need a time machine to get to them. The hotel is a little dated. Bedroom was clean but basic. Service was erratic. Bar food was very good and well priced. Breakfast adequate. My brother and I stayed here for 6 and 4 nights respectively. We wanted something in the middle of... More

We ate here last night and the food was fab, portions are generous and tasty food. It was a bit quiet but we understand it's out of season. The staff were very friendly and happy to help. The food is very good value money, I wish I had room for 3 courses! We would visit again for sure.

We're just married and spent part of our honeymoon at Yelfs. We couldn't have made a better choice. We know the Island quite well and love visting there but had not stayed at Yelfs before. Our en-siute bedroom was immaculate and the service at the hotel was impeccable. Yelfs is in a perfect location, close to the bus & train... More

The decor is dated but is what you'd expect for the price and location. We found it to be good value and the young staff were very enthusiastic and helpful. Parking across the road was very useful and the room was more than adequate. The hotel is centrally situated and the bar and restaurant are pleasant.

Yelf's is a Victorian hotel in the somewhat tired town of Ryde. In fact it's the only 'proper' hotel in Ryde open for bookings to the general public. Like all hotels Yelf's has its good points, but best not to expect too much at the room price. The staff are friendly and helpful. The downsides are mainly small things like... More

If you intend to holiday on the Isle of Wight and intend to stay or visit here then be prepared for the shutters on the bar to be pulled down into your drinks ant 1105pm! The bar staff in this respect are rude and confrontational. This is a regular occurrence. Not a great end to a holiday or night out.... More

Thank you for your review and please accept my apologies for the way in which you were treated by a previous member of our staff. This is not a regular occurrence and although our bar shutters do need to be closed after the bar has closed, guests should be asked to relocate onto the sofas or at a table in... More

Came here for lunch on the fly with two friends at around 1:30. Roughly 5 other tables in there having drinks so we thought we'd get our food relatively quick; 35 minutes later 2 butterfly garlic chicken and a chicken curry arrived. All the meals looked very dated (much like the decor!) and tasted very mediocre. Service from the team... More

Thank you for taking time to review you dining experience at Yelfs Hotel. As I take all reviews very seriously I have looked into the details of the day and time you dined here. Sundays are very busy and as you were sat in the garden area, I don't think you would have seen the additional 22 guests who were... More
