We visited last week for a meal and were pleasantly surprised at what we found. A beautiful building steeped in history, which, like so many other old buildings, had not been ruined by modernisation. It may not be to everyone's taste, however we loved the old fashioned charm of the place. The service was second to none - Ralph and... More

The one course Sunday roast lunch we had was undoubtedly excellent - as you would expect for £14.95 - but we thought this high class venue lacked atmosphere although service was very good and professional. It was disappointing that the bar had run out of sweet sherry for pre-lunch drinks- perhaps there's not much demand for it these days. I... More

We booked a meal here last week but they had a large group already booked in in the restaurant. They accommodated us in the bar and were really attentive. Danielle made us feel really welcome and so was the barmaid.

We spent 3 nights at Priory Bay, staying in the Coach House which is a 5-bedroom very spacious, excellently equipped house. We opted for self-catering for the meals when we weren't being entertained by our wedding hosts! Such a lovely house, and a really lovely spot. The hotel has its own private beach a short walk away. There is plenty... More

A charming hotel in an old Manor House full of interesting rooms. We had a superb room right at the top, fantastic sea views, it was about forty steps to the room via several landings so not for the faint hearted! The food was excellent, breakfast freshly cooked, my husband really enjoyed the kippers! Dinner was also excellent although we... More

For my wifes 40th Birthday we decided to go to the isle of Wight ,a place she loves. We decided to fork out for a posh classy hotel for one night to treat ourselves . The only thing we were initially worried about was in regards to what the staff would be like in the sense of (if you pardon... More

Absolutely splendid are the two words that best describe this Hotel. When I hear the moaning of some of the guests reviews they make me laugh out loud. They write their reviews as if they ran a Hotel (I would guess they don't) and make the most silly and unfair comments about the Hotel. There is no such thing as... More

We have lived on the Island for nearly 30 years but only recently discovered the delights of this wonderful hotel. Basically everything from placing the booking to checking out was easy and stress free. We had a upgrade on the room and what a room it was, huge comfortable bed to watch the sun come up in the morning. All... More

The family, nine of us arrived on Friday 24th October for a long weekend to a very warm welcome from Sarah and Nicky. We had booked dinner, but arrived quite late and although it would have been no trouble for us to have eaten , we really wanted something quick and easy. Again this was not a problem and very...

Two of us stayed for 3 nights after reading a favourable review in the press. Interesting building, nice location, but massively disappointing dining experience. A very limited menu choice and not executed with any competence. We made comments at the time and have since e-mailed the hotel twice with no response from them - we wouldn't go back nor recommend...
