A friend and I stayed at Yelf's on July 17th 2014 and found it very good value for money. The staff were extremely pleasant and helpful. The room was clean and fairly smart in appearance. The bathroom was very clean with a fantastic shower and the cooked breakfast was excellent. It was a Friday night and there was a fair... More

We stayed one night at Yelfs en route to another destination. It is located halfway up Ryde's main street in quite a busy location, but very convenient for the hovercraft terminal. We were allocated a room in the annexe. It was clean but very basic. The wardrobe door was broken, the bathroom freezing (and tile grout mouldy) the windows draughty... More

Perfect location to the hover boats and right on top of the city centre! After a lovely meal, a few drinks and enjoying the atmosphere we headed to our room to where we could hear and feel the music from the pub. I went to reception and explained this to the receptionist Katy and she replied with "well what do... More

This is the third time we have been to Yelfs, and as a party of 12 all of us can do nothing but say it was excellent, from the breakfast which was always fresh and hot and to the evening meals which were really special and such good value the Chef really has our praise. The management and all the... More

Stayed here 2 nights, found it to be friendly, have a pub which serve typical English food at a good price. You can walk downhill to the ferry to the mainland, a nice trip. Have shops and restraunts around.

Booked a weekend break with Groupon and was delighted. Arriving by hovercraft the hotel was just a short walk. Lovely hotel, great central location, close to train and hovercraft, very friendly staff who arranged for a bottle of wine on arrival, lovely clean rooms, great breakfast with fresh food. Will definately be back.

We booked a fairly last minute visit to the Isle of Wight over a holiday weekend and so our hotel choices were limited. Having spent a few days touring the island we were very happy with our choice of Ryde as a base, and in particular Yelf's. Some of the smaller, quieter locations are very nice during the day but...

The hotel is conveniently located on the high street, with close proximity to the hovercraft, catamaran, bus station, taxi rank and train station. This gives you access to the entire island, in addition, if you are taking the car it is only fifteen minutes from Fishbourne car ferry. We stayed for a couple of nights whilst visiting friends on the... More

I read some of the reviews before I booked. There were some negative comments on this site. All I can say, it was a lovely experience from the minute my wife entered the hotel. We were attending a wedding on the island and had no knowledge of area. The staff greeted us so warmly and couldn't do enough. Room was... More
