The hotel is a little tired, but the beds are comfortable and the bedding clean. The breakfast is very good value and the staff are very friendly. The hotel is very close to the beach and town centre. Excellent value, you get what you pay for, staff get ten out of ten!

Good location, hotel is dated and parking is a pain as they double park and block everyone in. It is a good Base if your away with friends etc. The staff were very good at reception during the day, less friendly at night but aren't we all! Beds were made every day which I didn't expect but towels not changed... More

All I can say is, the building and the contents are little dated. The day staff were extremely helpful and attentive. But it's a different story for the night guy. Cause parking is limited, they double park cars. He got very aggressive when we told him we couldn't move one of our cars cause we'd all had a drink and... More

Just got back from a four night stay at the Carisbrooke Hotel. All the staff were friendly and approachable. Breakfast was great. Choice of cereals and/or a full English with toast. Overall the hotel could do with updating. The bar/dining areas are tired looking and in need of a lick of paint and new blinds. Our room was the same.... More

Started the day off with a fantastic breakfast - delicious full English available with as much tea and coffee as you could manage. The children enjoyed having their hot chocolate every morning. Staff were wonderfully helpful, friendly and professional - particularly Ana Sousa who was lovely. Great location - 5 mins from the seaside. We'll definitely stay there again.

Although the facilities are pleasant and the location is okay the attitude of the night staff was very unpleasant. Rude, obnoxious and disrespectful to guests are some of the words I would use. If they can improve the night shift staff to the same high levels of daytime staff they could have a really nice experience instead of one soured.... More
