I forgot it was just stairs to the rooms, as I am Visually Impaired and found it hard going when using the stairs to my room, especially going down. We were at the very top, in a family room over looking the seafront, which was very nice for my husband and Mother In Law. I

I had a lovely week at the Hotel. I met my Fiancé there and it’s where he proposed to me. All the staff were in on it, even the entertainment and they made it such a lovely celebration. Especially a big thank you to Lottie who organised dressing the room with rose petals,

I wouldn’t recommend this hotel, the position is quite good however, it did seem understaffed when I stayed there and my room was definitely not the best. My reason for booking this short break was the visit to Osborne House which I thoroughly enjoyed, it all depends what you want if, you’re not too fussed and only staying 3 nights a break with National Coaches won’t break the bank.

Provided your itinerary covers Osbourne House & the IOW Steam Railway you are set. If you are travelling solo its 2 buses to reach East Cowes for Osbourne House and to reach Havenstreet for the railway you take the train from Shanklin for an easy connection at the adjoining station. Check all bus and train times prior to journeys.

there is certainly no lift in this Hotel & if you do not get a ground floor room then there is a lot of stairs.
