An unscheduled two day trip to the Isle of Wight landed us here which was very pleasant. The rating is probably 3½ of our stars but we have rounded up. The hotel is set back three or so houses from the waterfront but a walk out the front door takes you to a view to Portsmouth. The building is a classic old seaside hotel with a front ‘saloon’ bar with pub food and a back bar for the locals where you can play darts but also have food but is more ‘pubby’. The back bar is across the main corridor from the restaurant which is quite smart and yields good dining that is not over the top – and the same kitchen provides the good pub food too. Breakfast was served in the dining room as well though I suspect that another room at the front is used for both dining and breakfast when things are busy in the season. Our room was quite adequate with a homely English hotel feel with a modern bathroom. The stairs could be a challenge for the less agile but no worse than any other two story hotel of this ilk. The staff were friendly and helpful and coped very well when an abnormally violent storm hit the area (and many other parts of England) causing the atrium roof over the dining room to create a waterfall across the room in the middle of service. Very picturesque and great entertainment but devastating for the poor staff! But we had a relaxing two days here while investigating the Isle.
