This is a simple budget hotel. You get what you may for. If you want a 5 star hotel then go and pay a 5 star price for the privilege for staying in one The room was simple and nice (a little weathered but again, you get what you pay for) with great sea views out of 2 Windows Fresh... More

Where to start. Booked 2 rooms for us and another couple. Sent them 2 emails prior to booking, both ignored ! Receptionist completely unwelcoming. Looked at us like she wondered what we were doing there. Told they were "sorry" but the 2 rooms we booked were complete other ends of the hotel and in 2 different buildings, and 2 floors... More

For the fifth year running we have visited the Mayfair Hotel on a school visit-I cannot recommend it highly enough! Every year it improves a little more! Fantastic location, incredibly helpful staff -perfect for a school/group trip! Thank you!

We booked for two rooms only as we could not stay in our lovely caravan in Bembridge at white cliff bay any longer than the Friday of the Bank holiday. We picked the 1st hotel on our I pad, why we did not read the reviews on here I cannot think why??? My husband went in first to book in... More

Actually live fairly close to this hotel and want to warn potential visitors that they do not see what we see. The fron of the hotel has been painted but the back (the part visitors do not see) is crumbling away, has virtually no paint left on the bricks and is filthy. The bin area is disgustingly dirty and rats... More

Hello Shirley, Thanks for your input. We have been upgrading half the hotel since November 2015 and have invested over £150,000 since this date. Improving guest satisfaction is a key goal, and as we have limited finance, we need to insure this is invested in places where guests will benefit from the most. Although the back of the hotel is...

I went to this hotel as a part of my Isle of Wight tour which was booked with Baba Krupa Leicester I stayed with this hotel for 2nights and the room was pretty good with simple facilities. The room was clean. The food wasn't great it was cold and was missing simple elements. What I really liked about this hotel... More

The worse hotel I think we have ever stayed. The wardrobes were falling to pieces, the washbasin was cracked along with lots of tiles. The bed was v lumpy and our outlook was the dustbin area. Will never visit again. Seriously needs dragging into modern times.

I am not a fussy traveler and I am easily pleased, but this hotel has disappointed me from the very first moment I stepped in: first of all staff at the reception not very welcoming, then the whole aspect and layout of the hotel resembles very much with one of a nursing home, a very dated one. We've had to... More

After reading reviews we were dreading staying. Have to say the bedding, towels, breakfast cutlery and crockery were spotless. The owner, his wife and son were friendly and accommodating. The rooms are basic but the big problems are the bathrooms (damp but clean) and the sound proofing which is non existent. The views are amazing and with a bit of... More

Going in, I was pretty apprehensive after reading all the reviews. Maybe my expectations were lower, but I was very pleasantly surprised by what I saw. The rooms were very comfortable, perhaps a little dated, but not poorly-maintained, in any case. Its in a beautiful location with great sea views. I strongly recommend going out to see the sunrise.
