Offered an upgrade at reasonable rate and showed us both rooms - sea view and over the Old Castle so definitely a Yes please! Room was very nicely decorated , think our room had been through the refurbishment the Hotel was undertaking, wide range of teas and... More

Stayed for 2 nights between Christmas and New Year. Room was lovely, overlooking the Solent with a huge bath/shower room. Staff were really welcoming, and the food in the restaurant was fabulous. We had the afternoon tea upon arrival - so much of it we couldn't eat it all! Michael was excellent in the restaurant and bar, very helpful and... More

Our experience was of the dining which surpassed expectations. The three children greatly enjoyed their meal and staff were welcoming and happy to adapt their Christmas lunch to suit each of them. Two of the remaining five adults enjoyed the same menu and the others chose from the Conservatory menu, with evident enjoyment. We found that the wine list offered... More

Me and my boyfriend stayed here for a two night break, I booked it without really reading the reviews because it always puts an opinion in my mind before even going.. We arrived late morning on the ferry, it was a gloomy, wet, windy day. We couldn't check in just yet as the room wasn't ready until 3 so we... More

We stayed here for our anniversary weekend. Great service, room, food, location and views. Over the last few years we have stayed at all the best rated hotels on the island. This the best of the best. If there were any improvements...why can't you book the ferry and local parking as part of the package. But this is probably not... More
