The Bembridge Coast hotel is in a fantastic location. The hotel grounds literally lead onto the beach, with stunning views. The grounds are well maintained with a lovely Spanish garden, and those great views (worth mentioning again!).
The hotel is great too, although some of the rooms are needing updating. Last year our rooms were clean and modern looking, this time the ones we had (on the 2nd floor) left something to be desired in the maintenance department - the grouting was grubby, with loose skirting, and a general dog eared appearance. I understand that these are due a refurbishment soon so have left a 4 blob rating (last year's rooms would have merited a 5 blobber!). I hope that the ancient televisions are also going to be ditched - 4 channels with dodgy reception isn't really good enough (Premier Inn has had Freeview for a few years now, and it does make a difference even if you only want to find something for an hour to watch).
The food is a major plus point in this hotel. For the 3rd year running it was faultless - 6 of us stayed for 3 nights and didn't get one poor dish. First class Warner, and I don't often get to say that!
The bar prices are steep so be warned. As you're a captive audience (due to the great location) I think Warner are trying it on a bit, but that's my own opinion. We didn't get much chance to try the activities but there seems to be plenty on hand if you want to stay at the hotel during the day. There are evening entertainers, but again some of these won't be to everyone's taste, so choose carefully if you want to be entertained in the evening.
Warner operate a no children policy, which I have to say, does make a difference. It is a very pleasant atmosphere with no screaming children running round the restaurant.
If you want somewhere to relax in comfortable surroundings, with great views and good food, I'd recommend you try the Bembridge Coast.
