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

We booked in here last minute and how I wish we had stayed in our tent even with the rain - a twin room charged at £110 was a complete rip of for starters, you can stay in the Celtic Manor for not much more !!! Paint peeling off the bathroom ceiling, a shower you have to adjust for 20... More

I only stayed at Yelf's hotel for one night so I can only got a fleeting view of the place. When I arrived I was greeted by a very cheery pair on reception. Realising I had a bike they asked if I wanted to leave it securely in the beer cellar, and then directed me to my room. I was... More

Spent the weekend in Ryde with 1 night at the hotel and found it very pleasant (apart from the seagulls at 4:00 o'clock!!). The food was good and they had 3 real ales (2 local) at the bar. Staff very nice and helpful, even offered to upgrade my room if I wanted. Car park is across the road in next... More

A brief stay here was perfectly OK and reasonable value at £85 in high season. Yelf's occupies a lovely building in Union Street and has always looked impressive. The challenges of running a modern hotel in such an old building are many and I have some sympathy with the owners as they will never be able to charge the premium... More

Thank you very much to all the team at Yelf's for the care and attention you gave to our special day, especially Rebecca, the Manager, who was so professional from the booking process onwards. From start to finish they were great, everything went like clockwork, and made the day a truly special one for us. The ceremony room was set... More

The hotel is in an ideal location not just for Rude but for all the island. The hotel itself was very nice & clean. The room itself was surprisingly larger than expected which was great, the only gripe was that as the room was located at the front of the hotel the noise from the main road was very noisy... More

We attended a wedding and reception at this hotel. It doesn't look that impressive on the outside, but it was lovely inside. You could see the staff working hard to ensure that the wedding and reception ran smoothly. An example of this was checking the wedding cars had water for the happy couple after the ceremony as it was a... More
