Stayed here on a business trip recently - on a cold windy February evening. A beautiful old building and a feel of how things probably were when British hotels and resorts were at their height of popularity. Warm welcome, instant cosy feel to the reception area and quickly directed to my room.
Bathroom showed some signs of requiring a little TLC but bed was very comfortable and had a wonderful view over the water to Portsmouth.
I didn't eat in the evening however the menu looked tempting but breakfast was a very pleasant experience with good choice. Quality was very good - bacon particularly very tasty - must be those happy island piggies!
Just one word of caution, some of the rooms are in a separate building on the other side of road from the main hotel - I didn't see or experience these so cannot verify the quality or otherwise of these.
Definitely stay again on my next business trip. However, would also consider for a leisure break due to it's great central locate in Ryde and car parking also available in what is normally a difficult place to find non resident parking.
