Does anybody no where the nearest car park is to thehotel and how much it is for each day
There is on street parking along the Esplanade which is metered from 10am to 6pm at a cost of £6.60. After 6pm it is free of charge until 10am the following morning. You can purchase a tourist permit which allows you to park in almost all of the IOW Council run car parks and pay and display spaces on the Island. You can get this on line or by calling 01983 331331 and quoting the tourist permit code of 71000. There are also quite a few streets in Sandown that are free of charge and within in easy walking distance of the hotel. Hope this helps - Sophie
