This was our first time at Alum Dene B & B. We would highly recommended it. Lovely room, great breakfast and a very friendly atmosphere. It felt like home from home. A beautiful old house built in the mid to late 1800's. Only a 3 - 4 minute walk to the beach. We are definitely coming back. Thank you Rita,... More

Our room (no 12) had a lovely view on the sea & Isle of Wight. The Hotel is very homely, and Rita is very welcoming and friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed our breakfast and having a smashing chat with other guests. A great Weeks stay, and we are looking forward to the next time. Easy reach of the beach, and 20mins... More

I stayed and the Alum Dene Hotel for a few weeks. The accommodation was to a very high standard and very comfortable mattress to sleep on. The hotel is less than 5 minutes walk from the beach, where there are a few different dinning out places, also the beautiful seafront. I would definitely recommend staying at the Alum Dene Hotel,...

My wife booked this hotel as we were travelling a long distance to pick up a rescue dog and needed a dog and family friendly hotel as we had our dog with us for the visit.

A chilled, beach view hotel break was needed after Christmas:) Very good location literally 2 mins from the beach x having a dog is normally tricky when staying in hotels, but the Alum Dene made my four legged friend so welcome :) fab hot breakfast was so good after a long morning walk x Definitely revisit over the summer period...

Hostel filthy with loud tenants, heating has been off on the next day as pictures showing below. I will never ever back to this... More

Made a last minute booking here, as needed accommodation for my self, my Daughter and our 2 Dalmatians. We had a terrible journey (a lorry crashed on motorway, huge traffic jam) resulting in us not arriving until 1am, Hotel owners were aware and waited up for us to arrive, the lady who I think was Rita was pleasant & welcoming....
