“Fantastic Hotel, something to do for everyone,perfect location,friendly staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2009

My husband and I just returned home from a long week end at the Wight Montrene.
This hotel has superb facilities for everyone.Our two boys loved the heated indoor pool and table tennis.My husband and I enjoyed the steam and sauna rooms. We stayed in the family suite which was ideal with two spacious rooms complete with free view tv,the hotel is immaculate throughout.
The entertainment in the evenings was enjoyable and the bar staff bent over backwards to make our stay a memorable one. The breakfast was also fantastic with an excellent menu and all you could eat approach was welcoming. The boys were even given an easter egg each on Easter Morning compliments of Fran the owner.
We enjoyed our stay so much we didn't want to leave ,so we stayed one extra night.
The boys have begged for us to return later on in the year.

We spent the Easter Break at the Montrene Hotel and have come away very happy.
I only booked up about a week prior to going, on my enquiry I was told they only had a small double available, which I took. Yes, the room was small but perfectly adequate. There was every thing there that we needed.
The standard of cleanliness was very high throughout the hotel. The staff without any exception were terrific and made a fantastic team.
We had booked for breakfast and the evening meal, we do not as a rule book up an evening meal where we are staying, like to take a wander and see what we can find.
The price though for this meal sounded too good to miss, we were not dissapointed.
We have both come away a few pounds heavier, it seemed wrong to leave anything on your plate it tasted so lovely.
There was entertainment each evening, but if you wanted to go into the town, this was only a few minutes walk away.
The pool was lovely, nice and warm and most welcom after a day out touring.
If we were going back to the Island we would most certainly stay here again.

We stayed at the Wight Montrene Hotel over the 2009 Easter weekend. We were

really very pleasantly surprised by the look of the place when we walked in

past the restuarant on one side and bar and dancefloor on the other. The

staff were efficient and friendly throughout our stay. The rooms clean and

functional although our son's family room was situated over the bar area and

they found it quite noisy until quite late (1100 or 1130!). We enjoyed

relaxing massage treatments at the Oasis and made good use of the indoor

pool, however, probably the most outstanding feature was the food - it was

really top notch! Not only were the portions more than adequate, the quality

was excellent - better than many five star hotels in our opinion. We were

surprised the hotel is only rated two stars by the AA. We highly recommend

this hotel and will be using it again when we visit the Isle of Wight.

When you have breakfast, forget lunch, but dinner (small selected menu) is a delight. Hotel situated a few hundred yards from sandy beach and centre of town. Hotel owner Fran really cares for her guests. Terrific value for money.

Do you want a hotel in Sandown that offers true value for money?
Do you like service of the highest professional standard?
Would you like to tailor your visit for that Special Anniversay or occassion?
Have you any other special requirements?
This hotel offers it all with a fine stocked bar, excellent food and very clean and and user friendly rooms. The pool and sports area is ideal for all age groups and you can even organise flying or sub-aqua if you feel adventurous. The staff are all professional and friendly and the breakfast and evening meal is of the highest standard with a wide choice of menu covering all tastes. If you have "Special Needs" these are also well catered for with guests of all age groups enjoying the extremely friendly atmosphere. Would I recommend it - I have visited over 136 different countries and the Wight Montrene can be proud to be amongst my favorite stay! Well done to all concerned!
