We stayed in the family room which is great if you have family of four as there are two interconnecting rooms (one with bunkbeds). Breakfast delicious and location also good as inbetween beach front and the main town. We also got... More

For a small hotel The Hambledon has a big heart and a menu to satisfy any appetite. The full English breakfast is substantial but there are many other options available, and the evening meals are varied and always freshly cooked. Rooms are clean and tidy as is the whole hotel - the bar / lounge area is large and comfortable.... More

We had our annual visit to the Isle of Wight, staying as always at the Hambledon Hotel. Nothing has changed, as always Bill & Jackie provided us with first class hospitality, a comfortable room, superb food and Bill pre-booked our ferry. We had a great week.

After many stays at the hambledon this was out first as a family of 4. Bill & Jackie couldn't have been more accommodating. Our beautifully decorated room was perfect. We were asked if we needed bottles sterilised for the baby and Harry our 9 year old loved his bedroom directly off ours. The meals were outstanding as usual. The hotel... More
