Just returned from a great stay in this hotel. First things first.....this is a two star hotel so don't expect five stars and then you won't be disappointed. The bedroom was adequate. Nothing to rave or complain about, although the stairs up to it were a bit of a trial with a heavy suitcase. And that's really an end of the "cons" . The "pros" are the location, the breakfast, the staff , the facilities and the entertainment. You are a short walk away from the High Street, the beach and several sea front eating establishments and when i say short I mean 5 minutes. You are about a 15 minute walk to the Pier in one direction and the Zoo in the other. You can even have a long stroll into Shanklin along the seafront if the mood takes you.. couple of miles probably.. The beaches locally are excellent too. Lots of sand and not lots of people. The Breakfast is perfect.. have as little or as much as you want basically. Their "Full Monty" is a typical Full English and the "Jurassic" is pretty much two "Full Montys" ... I wish I'd tried one but the Monty was enough. We didn't eat in the evenings at the hotel but it seemed busy every night which I took as a good sign. The staff were perfect in every way, thats all that needs saying really. The facilities on site included a swimming pool, a jacuzzi, sauna , a mini gym, snooker table, table tennis and a nice seating area for families. The entertainment in the bar was most enjoyable most nights featuring a pianist or organ player. But on other nights there were disco and keyboard nights and Thursday was a jazz/blues night featuring the pianists plus some other friends, bass, drum, sax and vocals. Really quite excellent .
